The freenode project has been supporting the use and development of Free and Open Source Software for 20 years this year, is the latest addition to the service and aims to connect those looking to hire with the immense talent that can be found within the wider freenode communities. The service is free to use, but companies that find a successful match via the service are encouraged to make a donation to freenode to support the operations of the freenode network, and the annual freenode #live conference.
