That just looks like an ad for people to be Flagship Hub writers.
Actual jobs/hiring are here, http://hubpages.com/help/jobs/
It's actually a link to http://hubpages.com/help/discussion-forum with a tracker--cheap way to try and boost, I suppose. Sad that someone would utilize a legit freelancing site to spam in this way, offering HP as an actual hourly job. Not that it doesn't happen, but I like HP and hate people who might give it a bad name. By the same token, people who don't know better might come here and have something good to contribute.
