How to hire SaaS engineers
What is SaaS?
SaaS (Software as a Service) is a software delivery model that has recently gained popularity. It involves hosting software applications on third-party servers and making them accessible to users over the Internet.
Instead of installing and maintaining software on their own computers or servers, customers can access the software through a web browser or a dedicated app.
One of the key benefits SaaS offers is the elimination of upfront investment in hardware, infrastructure, and maintenance.
Traditionally, businesses had to purchase software licenses and invest in the necessary hardware and infrastructure to support them. With SaaS, however, customers pay a subscription fee to access the software, making it a more cost-effective solution.
Companies use SaaS across a range of industries, including customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), human resources (HR), and more. Popular SaaS products include Salesforce, Workday, and Adobe Creative Cloud.
Industry analysts, such as those from McKinsey & Company, predict continuous growth in the SaaS market. The market for SaaS products is projected to reach nearly $200 billion by 2024, highlighting the increasing adoption of this software delivery model.
What is a SaaS developer?
SaaS developers specialize in creating software solutions hosted remotely and accessed online.
When you hire a SaaS developer, they’re responsible for designing, building, and maintaining the software users can access through a website or app. In other words, you can leverage cloud computing to save time, collect data, and streamline various processes.
SaaS developers possess a unique set of skills. One of their primary skills is being able to write code for software applications, including customer relationship management (CRM), human resources (HR), finance, marketing, and analytics.
From concept to implementation, SaaS developers are involved in every stage of the development process, ensuring the software meets the specific needs and requirements of the business.
What does a SaaS developer do?
A SaaS developer writes code for SaaS enterprises and products. They can work as freelancers or be part of an agency that develops and maintains SaaS applications.
Collaboration and communication skills are also crucial for a SaaS developer. They often work in teams, collaborating with designers, product managers, and other developers to ensure the successful implementation of the SaaS product. Effective communication is essential to understand client requirements, gather feedback, and provide regular updates on the project’s progress.
Moreover, a SaaS developer must stay up to date with industry trends and technological advancements. The tech landscape constantly evolves, and new frameworks, tools, and best practices emerge regularly.
Continuous learning and improvement are vital to staying ahead in the field and delivering innovative and efficient solutions.
How much does it cost to hire SaaS developers with Gun.io?
We get a lot of questions about how to hire SaaS developers and how much they’ll cost. The short answer is this: If you have a budget, we can design a solution to suit your needs. But planning for a future headcount is much easier when you have numbers and data.
With this in mind, we don’t have standard prices on Gun.io. Instead, we offer flexible retainers based on your needs, the project, and the developers’ salary expectations. These retainers start at $5,000 per month. This price includes Gun.io’s fee, and you’ll see the total price upfront on developers’ profiles. There are no extra fees.
To help you move forward and hire SaaS developers, we’ve gathered data from recent hires on the Gun.io platform. These numbers represent the averages and ranges for developer costs within their respective experience and geography bands.
This data is a great place to understand how companies you’re competing with think about their investment with each hire.
We recommend using this data as a guide. You’ll still need to consider other factors to determine what will best meet your needs.
How is Gun.io different from other SaaS developer hiring platforms?

Can I hire a SaaS engineer part-time?
Yes, you can! At Gun.io, you can hire a SaaS engineer on a full-time, part-time, or contract-to-hire basis.
Of the three, contract-to-hire is a favorite among our clients and developers. This is because contract-to-hire lets you roll the developer onto your project to see if they’re a good fit before hiring full-time.
Does Gun.io only provide hiring services, or can I get project management support for my SaaS project too?
Yes, you can (again!) Gun.io can help you hire SaaS developers on a full-time, part-time, or contract-to-hire basis, and provide project management support.
We facilitate intro calls and support both parties as needed throughout the engagement. We also handle hours tracking, billing, and payments.
