Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you?

Gun.io was founded in 2011 by Free and Open Source software developers. The goal? Build a place for Professional Freelancers™ to work with excellent clients and  build awesome products, with an unwavering commitment to quality talent and sensible pricing. 

Who are your freelancers?

We call them Professional Freelancers because they are individuals who make their full-time income as freelance crafts(wo)men. They have at least 10 years of experience working as both a freelancer and in their specialization of choice. We respect the side hustle game, but our freelancers aren't moonlighters - they're masters of their craft. 

Are they really that good?

Yes. We perform a rigorous review process with three levels of vetting, code review, and live reference checks. Moreover, our Professional Freelancers won't work on other staffing platforms, through recruiters, or for other agencies. They only work with us because our standards are so high.

How much does your service cost?

Most freelancers at Gun.io have reduced their rates to work on our platform. We pass these savings on to you — allowing you to access top-tier talent for a fraction of their normal rates. Your actual costs will vary based on the freelancer with whom you work. Longer-term deals will yield more cost-savings.

What type of projects have you done?

Our teams have built everything from simple web applications, APIs and mobile applications to highly complex HIPAA-compliant medical machine learning/AI clusters and data processing pipelines, international payment processing systems, high-frequency trading algorithms, embedded systems, and elastic critical infrastructure.

Who are your clients?

We’ve helped thousands of businesses — from global businesses like Cisco, NBC and Tesla, to small businesses who just made their first $1 in revenue.

Will I own my code?

Yes.

Do you offer a guarantee?

We have a "Great Code Guarantee" where we cover 5 hours of any disputed work, no questions asked. You should ask us about it.
