Full-time Freelance

Book a freelancer as a full-time member of your team.

Supercharge productivity with a full-time developer - on your team and working in less than a week.

Virtually eliminate the risk and overhead of a traditional hiring process.

Certified Talent

We've already screened, vetted and referenced-checked each developer on our platform. While you can certainly do that yourself, we've built a core-competency around the process and done it thousands of times.

No Mishire Risk

If you need different expertise or make a mishire, it’s back to square one. With Gun.io, we can plug in new talent within 48 hours. At no cost to you.

Higher ROI

Benefits, hiring time and overhead, GA costs, replacement costs and time. All of it is in play with an employee, none of it with Gun.io. Don’t pay a dime until you meet, choose, and start working with a Gun.io developer.
