3. Interview, Confirm, and Manage Work

Our Index.dev matchers have already done the hard work of selecting the right tech talent from our pool. Now it's your turn to engage with your A-list developer. Here's how:

Once you've found the perfect fit for your team, it's time to seal the deal. Approve the hire with just a few clicks, sign the contract, and welcome the newly assigned developer to your project. Remember to add your signature in the "My Profile" section.

How developer assignments work 

While we do not directly employ programmers or participate in contractual agreements between clients and talent, we do provide dedicated Account Managers who are always on hand to address any concerns or challenges that may arise. Our goal is to facilitate a seamless and successful connection between clients and tech talent, ensuring the innovation and performance of your software development projects.

Here's a breakdown of how it works:

  • Our Approach. Index.dev operates uniquely – we’re not an employer, job board, agency, or tech community. We're a global tech remote work platform that sources, screens, vets, and manages tech talent, connecting them with global tech companies. We don't directly employ tech talent. Instead, clients establish a direct contract with Index.dev, making us the intermediary between you and the assigned software engineers. We handle billing, payments, and related services, ensuring a hassle-free experience.
  • Our Margin: Our margin encompasses candidate matching, standardized contracts, invoicing, and customer support throughout the engagement. Developers are accountable for delivering quality code on time, while tech companies oversee work and timely payments. Index.dev addresses any issues and provides Dedicated Account Managers for seamless onboarding and team integration.
  • No Hidden Fees. We don't withhold taxes, such as unemployment insurance or social security and don’t charge any fees for assigning developers like agencies or freelancing platforms do. Clients retain intellectual property rights for paid work. An NDA ensures confidentiality, and our tech talent is covered under the agreement. Index.dev developers aren't external; they're integral members of your team.
  • Multiple vetted candidates. Within just 48 hours from placing your job, you'll receive the initial set of candidates, carefully selected by our in-house matchers. While the entire hiring process duration will vary based on your specific interview and testing criteria, if you decide to choose a candidate from that initial batch (as 90% of our clients do), we'll handle all the paperwork within a week. That's approximately 7 business days, starting from our first interaction. This is a remarkable 60% faster than the industry standard.
