I can't believe you got me on a video call with an engineer on the same day. I've used a bunch of others sites and half of them didn't even get back to me for several days. It's obvious your process is so much tighter, and the level of talent was awesome.

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 OUR CLIENTS
Flexible, personal approach — I didn’t feel like I had to jump through hoops and every contact point was friendly and easy going.
The fact that you are
hands onis an asset for us. IdeallyI know our interests are being looked after with Gun.io, which is important.
