Client Manifesto

We're re-imagining how great engineers and innovative engineering teams work together.

Our recipe begins with exceptional talent, and is designed to remove the risk from your hiring process.

While other development services may appear less expensive, we believe that they cut corners — and therefore pass on hidden risks (and costs) to their clients.

That’s not how we roll.

 

 

Our formula looks like this:

Treat our freelance talent better than anyone else.

Find the highest quality talent in the industry

Top level engineering talent often choose to operate independently. They can typically charge a premium for their services and also have the autonomy to choose the work that's most interesting or professionally rewarding. We actively search, discover, and sign these top level pros in an evergreen effort to grow the industry's best community. These elite engineers are very difficult to find - much less afford - but that's where we come in.

 

Keep their book of business full of challenging work

Independent contractors often struggle to find a balance between non-billable, business development activities and the actual work people pay them to do. Fact is, most top engineers are more than willing to give up a little on their day rate in order to have a consistent book of business, paired with the opportunity to jettison business development, project management, billing, et all of the non-value-add work that comes with being an independent contractor.

 

Pay them better than our competition does

We're not the only community in town, but we share more revenue than anyone. Our Professional Freelancers receive up-to 70% of every dollar spent with us. No other business in the software development industry pays 70% of their fees directly to their talent (we’ve checked the public filings) — they are bloated by unnecessary internal operational, engineering, and marketing costs.

Provide exceptional service to their clients.

Provide access to an exclusive pool of exceptional freelance talent

Finding great developers and product talent is hard. Everyone struggles with it. The good engineers are taken and probably too expensive anyway. There aren't enough people in your city or region to support the demand. And it's hard to do proper vetting, so it's risky to hire someone and it not work out. Not to mention the time it takes to do all of that by yourself. Our approach reduces risk, while dramatically increasing the supply of quality, vetted talent. 

 

Handle all of the aspects of finding a candidate that you don't have the time, expertise or desire to do

Your first call is with a member of our leadership team in order to understand your project, goals, stack, and all the other nuances that define your ideal situation. Then we take on all the related tasks of posting your job, fielding inquiries, vetting, and matching candidates to your specs. Once your freelancer or team are sourced, you will receive a dedicated 24/7 billing and project administrative contact to stay connected to your needs and project over time.

 

Provide structure, process and oversight at the project level to guarantee success

Most of our competitors provide a transactional service. You post a gig, they match you up with a developer and you take it from there. We aren't a transactional service. In fact, our value is equally distributed across the entire project lifecycle. We stay connected to you and your project to make sure you have the roles you need, when you need them, regardless of skill set - all without increasing your cost.

“Flexible, personal approach — I didn’t feel like I had to jump through hoops and every contact point was friendly and easy going.”

Ethan C., CTO

WE'RE TRUSTED BY DEVELOPERS

And we'd like to earn your trust, too.
