It is a good idea to create a professional website or hosted portfolio where you can direct prospective clients to get a sense of your work. We also have several freelance Android developer resume samples including one showing how you can list formal positions as well as projects you pursue on a freelance basis.
You may also want to sign up for sites where freelancers bid on work. The rates you command depend on the extent of your experience and your reputation on the service. It can be difficult to start getting gigs unless you are willing to under-bid more experienced developers, but you don't want to get stuck on the lowest rung of the pay scale. Deliver quality work on time and obtain ratings and testimonials from satisfied clients so that you can raise your rates to a level commensurate with your work.

Also consider the site Upwork.com, which is dedicated to freelance work. It allows employers to find freelancers for jobs; it also allows job seekers to find freelance jobs. On Upwork, you can apply to work on freelance projects. You can communicate with a business through the site, and you can even receive your paycheck through the site.
Also, check out local technology meetup groups in your area. There are many technology groups listed on websites such as Meetup.com. Target a meetup focused around Android developers (or mobile developers in general). When you attend a meeting, you'll be able to network with others in your field, and perhaps even find a contact or "in" for an Android developer freelance job.
Last, don’t forget to keep your own online presence up to date. Be sure to list all of your experience on your LinkedIn profile, including any technical certifications you may have. If you can, also create a portfolio website. Your portfolio website should be a site that highlights your background and shares examples of your work. You can build a site like this using various platforms, including WordPress, Squarespace, and Wix.
Also, don’t forget to post to LinkedIn and Facebook about how you are looking for freelance Android developer jobs! You never know who in your professional and personal social networks could connect you to work you want.
