For software hackers/developers there are many.

However, I need a hardware guy (or girl?) for a relatively small project.

Is there a site where I can search for people and see ranks, recommendation, etc.?

Elance.com and iFreelance.com both have listings for hardware engineers. Elance is far larger, and currently has over 8500 providers listed under Electrical Engineering. I am listed under both and have gotten work through them in the past.

Another one suggested by a comment below is freelancer.com, formerly known as getafreelancer.com.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Mark, I'm a member at freelancer.com also. I tried searching for Electrical Engineering and only came up with a couple of listings, which is why I left them out. But if you go to their home page and scroll down to Engineering & Science, turns out there are quite a few jobs listed (19, plus 28 under Electronics). So I was mistaken. I don't know how to search providers there however. On iFreelance.com, when you search providers for Electrical Engineering you get 62 hits. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ agreed their search isn't as good when using the term "electrical engineering" most of the jobs that would interest folks from this board fall under "electronics" or similar headings. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @mark, @tcrosley, elance seems to be the only site that when I am actually writing proposals it seems worth it. \$\endgroup\$
