Isn't it rather: "Kolik odborniku pracuji (dlouhe "i")" since odborniku is plural ?

The subject of the sentence is actually "kolik," which is singular. A literal translation of "kolik odborníků "would be "How many OF experts," with "odborníků" in the genitive, rather than nominative, case. So the verb is singular to match up with "kolik."
