If you're reading this, you want to know how to hire a professional freelancer, you have probably already scoured the internet and the process you have been trying is not working

You came to the right place, that's what we do. When it comes to hiring a developer, we know the pain, everything from qualified candidate sourcing, interviewing, code testing, reference checking and on-boarding. From hiring to on-boarding in process

We've tested, re-tested, revolutionized and expedited the process (48 hours or less in fact), so you don't have to.

 

Qualified Candidate Sourcing

Finding candidates is easy, but finding qualified candidates is a whole other story, it is difficult and time consuming. You take the time hiring a recruiter who may not be technical or know the required tech stack you are looking for not to mention 

Our Elite technical talent come to us with 7-10 years of experience in the industry for a fulfilling remote career. They come to us having concluded a successful high level career in the industry and have wanted to choose their own path that allows for flexibility and control over trajectory 

 

 

Interviewing, Code Testing & Reference Checks

 This is the most time consuming process of all, when doing this yourself you spend way too much time and money on interviews and code tests for candidates that most likely lead to a dead end. We feel your pain- when you waste time, you waste money. That's why when you come to us for a professional freelancer, we implement our own rigorous vetting process. You know when you go to your favorite BBQ restaurant and they have a signature sauce? Well, our 360 vetting process is just like that.

We put all our energy into this part of the process, because it is the only part that matters in finding the right candidate. These are the steps in our no bull shit vetting process:

  • Qualification screening via video call

  • Technical exam via Codility

  •  Carefully review results of technical exam

  •  Executive interview with our CEO and VP of operations

  •  Reference checks

If that exact process were your responsibility who knows when you would return to your regularly scheduled program in your own role. 

 

On-Boarding

On-boarding takes the longest to solidify, the average time of fully onboard an engineer in the U.S is 58 Days.
