We were founded in 2016. Our founder, Zack Burt, has recently left a startup and decided to write a book about freelance programming. That book became immensely popular and attracted a community of engineers. Soon, we discovered a business model of recruiting and began delivering wonderful results for our clients.
You can put off hiring a contingency recruiter for a couple of days or even weeks, but we guarantee you, eventually you're gonna realize you need this. So the only thing that's gonna be different is you'll be a couple of days or weeks behind where you would be if you signed up with us right now. And, if you happen to stumble across a wonderful candidate in the meantime, you're still under no obligation to us whatsoever!
We guarantee you these things, at zero cost to you. (1) A custom landing page that advertises your company and your open jobs. (2) Advertising of your company and open jobs, ubiquitously on job boards and in the developer community. (3) A pipeline of software engineer-reviewed candidates.
We charge a percent of first-year salary once you hire one of our candidates. We absolutely do not charge a percentage on things like equity, bonus compensation or benefits. There are zero hidden costs.
We sign a contract but you can give notice and cancel at any time.
We will send you a simple, one page agreement that explains the financial logistics of our arrangement. We can also send you case studies. Just ask!
Often times, based on the learnings of the hiring process, the job description and the profile of the ideal candidate persona both end up changing. Our support personnel are here to ensure that we quickly update our communication with the developer community and set expectations throughout the process.
