We separate generalists from true specialists using skill-specific assessments that mirror challenges on the job
We tried to cover your burning questions here but if we've missed something, just drop us a note.
A few factors can affect the process length, but generally it takes four to seven days to start working with your developer once you've selected the right person.
Neither. G2i is an online marketplace where companies and software developers find each other. Engineers who are hired through G2i report directly to the companies (in the case of full-time employees) or are independent contractors.
But unlike most talent marketplaces, we have dedicated technical recruiters and have invested heavily on developing our own vetting process. We don't just let any developer join G2i. We've chosen to curate users in order to maintain quality and and build trust with both sides of the marketplace.
Functionally, our platform executes contracts, handles payments, manages international compliance regulations while our team provides support to all users.
We evaluate role-based technical skills for the following:
Each company is different but the top reasons are:
They only need a developer for a specific or time-limited project. Typically, they want to hire the same developer repeatedly for short bursts without having to offer full-time employment.
A hiring freeze prevents them from offering full-time employment but they have budget to spend on project costs, including temporary resources. This means no extra costs spent on benefits, taxes, and insurances.
They want to hire a remote developer but are unable to handle international payments, local compliance, employment taxes, and insurances on their own. This is especially harder if you're hiring digital nomads.
...and our favorite (looking at you, Enterprise customers): They want to hire a freelancer but their HR, Legal and Payroll teams are not geared to handle the bureaucracy and administration associated with hiring independent contractors, much less for short periods of time. It's simpler to work with a company like G2i under a single Service Agreement, NDAs, simplified payments, professional insurance and reliable customer support.
We understand the risks, which is why we have a one-week trial period to help mitigate it. If a developer doesn't meet your standards during the trial, we won't charge you. We'll then find a replacement to ensure your project is still completed with minimal disruption.
When you work with G2i, you enter into an agreement that protects your company's confidentiality and Intellectual Property automatically. It grants you all rights to the "Work Product" produced by any G2i developer during the course of their engagement with you. On top of that, we're happy to sign additional NDAs before you share any sensitive information or project details.
