Gun.io vs. Moonlight

What is Moonlight?

Moonlight is a community-based job board platform for freelance technical talent. What sets moonlight apart from other alternatives is that the community is small and directly connects freelancers with clients. Moonlight also allows freelancers to broadcast their availability to clients who have hired similar freelancers in the past. 

 

Moonlight doesn't have reviews on any of the major review sites quite yet, but their launch on Product Hunt was met positively. Reviewers of Moonlight cite the automated process and quick turnaround as their favorite parts of the platform. 

 

 

What's the difference between Gun.io and Moonlight?

1. Moonlight’s clients post their open jobs to their site so freelancers can notify them via email or slack their interest in the role. At Gun.io, we do the work of reviewing applications and determining top matches for our clients, so you won't waste time sifting through dozens of resumes.

2. Moonlight does not offer engagements longer than 3 months. We offer engagements anywhere from 1+ months to contract-to-hire.

3. Moonlight requires additional monthly fees for a dedicated account manager. At Gun.io, every engagement is assigned a dedicated account manager at no extra cost to support you the entire length of your project.

Gun.io vs. Arc

What is Arc?

Another alternative to MoonlightWork is Arc. Arc, formerly CodementorX, is a technical recruiting platform that supplies freelance programmers. 

 

 

What's the difference between Gun.io and Arc?

1. Arc requires a retainer fee to reserve your developer’s time from other competing roles, or a weekly invoice option for hours their developer has available to work on your project. At Gun.io, when you engage a developer, their sole focus is your project. You will never have to worry about competing roles getting in the way of your developer’s work.

2. Arc sets the hourly rate you pay to work with one of their developers. We present candidates with the rate our freelancers set for themselves.

3. If something goes wrong with your engineer, Arc will match you with a new freelancer...after their required 3-month trial period. At Gun.io, we switch out talent (free of charge) as soon as you need, no set term date required.

Gun.io vs. Lemon.io

What is Lemon.io?

Lemon.io, formerly Coding Ninjas, is an on-demand freelance hiring platform that provides pre-vetted freelance engineers to clients. Lemon is another alternative to Moonlight, although the two platforms specialize in different geographic zones (Lemon in Eastern Europe, and Moonlight in the US). 

 

 

What's the difference between Gun.io and Lemon.io?

1. Lemon.io only presents one candidate at a time to clients based on their role requirements. We present as many available candidates that fit your role and project scope requirements to give you the opportunity to find the best fit.

2. The minimum years of experience required to join Lemon.io’s platform is 2 years. We require a minimum of 5 years.

3. At Lemon.io, you pay before you start an engagement with their freelancers. At Gun.io, you don’t pay anything until you and your engineer get to work.
