You shouldn't have to lower your standards when hiring contractors. So don't.
They say you should plan to spend 50% of your time on recruiting. We say hiring a great contractor should only take a few hours.
If you like reading hundreds of resumes, you aren't going to like hiring with Facet.
Facet filters out thousands of low-quality contractors using our unique screening process - we only accept senior developers, designers, product managers and QA engineers that have spent several years at a top-tier software company like Google or Amazon. That means you are hiring from an elite talent pool that have already passed the most rigorous hiring bars in the software industry.
You're also getting contractors that have experience building massively scalable systems at the highest standards of quality - the kind of experience you simply can't get at smaller software companies or dev bootcamps.
Our developer network includes a wide range of skill sets, programming languages and technology expertise. Everything from Machine Learning to WinForms - if it's being used at the large software companies, you'll find it in our network.
In order to join the Facet Developer Network, you must meet the following requirements.
We needed a technology partner to take us from concept, to live demo, all the way to production. Facet provided an expert team of full-stack and mobile application developers. They are an excellent dev partner and an extension of our team.
We have a great working relationship with Facet where their developers work directly with our team as if they were in-house & we’ve been able to quickly do some amazing things. Happy to work with a partner who can share your vision and help you execute.
Facet has been a vital extension of our own in-house development team. Working with them is also just plain fun and has provided me with peace-of-mind that the job will be done right and on-time. I know we can count on them.
Yes, our network has contractors located in most of the major tech hubs. However, you'll definitely have a wider selection of contractors from which to choose if you allow them to work remotely.
It costs nothing to sign up with Facet. You only pay for the hours billed by the contractors you hire. Facet takes a small percentage of the billings. Hiring a Facet contractor costs about the same as the fully-loaded costs (salary + stock + bonus + benefits) of hiring a full-time employee.
Communicating with team members that are on the other side of the world is very difficult and can significantly slow down development. That's why Facet requires that it's contractors be located in the US or Canada - since that's where our customers are.
