Hire from a trusted pool of talent
1. Build your ideal candidate
Tell us the skills you require and chat with our talent team.
2. Receive your candidates
In 3-5 business days, you’ll be sent a shortlist of top developers for your role. There are no job posts or stacks of resumes to review—just a shortlist of great matches ready to work.
You can then decide which candidates you’d like to chat with, and we’ll arrange the intro calls. One of our team will also sit in to help answer any questions.
3. Get started
If you’ve already started a project, you know what technologies and frameworks you need. You can list those requirements to hire a top programmer. However, if you’re starting from scratch, you’ll need to determine which languages, libraries, and frameworks will work best for your project.
In addition, front-end developers can work with back-end developers to build RESTful APIs and adaptive HTML5/CSS3 layouts.
A back-end developer can connect the data you receive to your user interface. They’re responsible for databases and APIs and focus on server-side functionality.
In addition, back-end programmers develop business logic, work with databases, and test and debug application components.
When to hire a full-stack developer:
If you’re building an app or website from scratch, a full-stack developer can do both front-end and back-end development. However, while they know both areas, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re experts.
Consider this example. You have an existing app. You just need to add new features, update software, and/or migrate code to a new platform. You likely know what technologies and developers you need.
However, if you’re starting from scratch, you need to figure out which platform to use. You must also know which technologies can bring your project to life.
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, which includes Gun.io’s fee, and you’ll see the total price upfront on developers’ profiles. There are no extra fees.
We charge full-time placements a 20% fee of their negotiated first-year salary at your company. But you only pay when you start working with a candidate you love.
To help you move forward in the hiring process, you’ll find below some data we’ve gathered 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 start understanding how companies competing with you for talent think about their investment with each hire.
When looking at the data, you’ll notice that average rates aren’t linear. This is because urgency, the number of developers with the skillset you’re looking for, and other hire-specific factors can swing these averages.
We recommend using this data as a guide. You’ll still need to consider other factors to determine what will best meet your needs.
Our rigorous vetting process ensures companies get matched with the best talent. This process includes an algorithmic screening and a live technical interview with one of our senior engineers.
