As we are contractors, you don't need to pay for our benefits, taxes, PTO, holidays, equipment.. comparing to your regular employees. Our price is very competitive on the market for the quality of service that we bring to you. It's very hard to find seniors with our experience for the price we offer. We charge on hourly rate or we can give you a per-project payment quote.
WE ARE NOT AN AGENCY
We are independent senior freelance software engineers and not an agency.
Agencies' margins are super-high and we both cost less than your regular employee.
We work together or individually and we can adapt to your workload and requirements.
OUR COST = THE NET PAY OF YOUR EMPLOYEE
Our cost is on the level of the net pay of your regular employee at the same position. In comparison to your regular employee, you save on our PTO, sick leave, holidays, health insurance, social security, retirement plan, taxes, equipment and other benefits.
Contractor hourly rates can be very high but we have decided to keep it on the very minimum.
Our hourly rate does not include PTO, holidays, taxes and all other benefits, so we don't charge you for them.
PAY HOURLY OR PER PROJECT MILESTONE
We usually charge hourly but we can give you a quote for your project milestone in advance, whatever works best for you. The price we agree in front will not change later.
SCALE THE WORKLOAD FROM 5 - 100 HOURS PER WEEK
We can adapt to you workload and requirements and we can work for as little as 5 hours/week up to 100 hours/week in case you need to build something fast. Just let us know and we will cover you.
SAVE 30% ON OUR RATE + 25% ON RECRUITERS + 10% IF YOU HIRE BOTH OF US
Save 30% on us comparing to regular employees where you need to pay benefits as well. Also you don't pay for recruiters and job postings that are additional expenses. If you hire both, we give you 10% off on our hourly rate. You just pay for our work and what we deliver for you.
We are dedicated to our clients' success and we can provide you our long-term support to help you adopt your business to your future needs.
7 DAYS RISK-FREE START
We give you 7-days risk-free guarantee on our work! If you're not satisfied with our results in the first week, just let us know within the first 7 days, and yo don't need to pay us at all.

We are independent developers that can work directly for you. No middleman between us. Agencies charge you a lot in comparison to hiring developers directly. Recruiters take up to 25% commission for the first year when they find you an employee. You can spend that money on marketing and grow your startup faster.
Let's sum up, you save up to 30% on contractors, up to 25% on recruiters, no 3rd-parties involved, no tax payments, socials security, benefits, retirement plan, sick leave, health insurance, perks, PTO, holidays, equipment, office space, electricity, gym membership... Every cent you spend on us is directly invested into the development of your startup.
The two of us work best when we work together. We usually split our tasks into two groups to cover everything as a whole like: development vs. testing, front-end vs. back-end, styles vs. scripts, management vs. development, API client vs server etc.
We are very responsive to your requests and available for you whenever you need. We can split our time for the maximum availability if needed. We can also be highly available for the customer support if that's something that's required.
We strive to optimize our work to bring you the best quality for the minimum investment. One of us will probably communicate more with you while the other one is more deeply focused on the development. No need to pay us both for the time spent on communication with you.
Since we enjoy working together, if you hire both of us, we will give you 10% off on our usual hourly rate. You get a small team that can handle anything you can imagine in the most optimal way!
If you're not satisfied with our work, for any reason whatsoever, you don't need to pay us at all. Just let us know within the first 7 days of our employment.

Are you an agency?
No. We are two freelance developers that can work for you directly.
What kind of contract can you sign?
It's an individual freelance contractor agreement. Not an agency contract. No extra fees and margins.
How do you charge?
We charge per our individual hourly rate, or we can agree upfront on a milestone or project and give you our estimate in time and cost.
How much do you charge?
Our cost is on the level of a net salary for a senior engineer in US, if we work for you a full year on an hourly basis.
All other benefits and payroll taxes you usually pay for your employees, you can now keep for yourself.
Can I try you without commitment?
Yes. We offer a 7-day risk-free start for up to 40 hours for you without any commitment. If you're not satisfied with our work within the first week, you don't need to pay us at all.
Do I need to pay taxes and benefits for you?
No. You don't need to pay anything more than our hourly rate or what we agree upfront for your project milestone.
Do I need to report taxes to IRS for my US company?
No. The US company doesn't need to report the payments they made to the foreign independent contractor to the IRS if they are not US-sourced income. The company also doesn't need to withhold any tax. However, the company does need to collect W-8BEN as proof of the contractor's status.
What technologies do you use?
Do I need to hire both?
No. You can hire any of us for any amount of time you want. You can hire both of us if you want. It depends solely on your requirements.
What is your availability?
It depends on our current workload, but if we find that we all like working together, we can plan to dedicate all of our resources ASAP to you and you can scale our workload up to 100 hours per week.
Are you then my employees?
No. As an employee you need to pay all benefits and taxes. We work as external on-demand software engineers.
However, an employment option is also something we can consider.
How can I be sure that your quality of work is good?
We can guarantee you that. We have more than 30 years of experience together and dozens of finalized projects, especially startups. Contact us for the list of projects. We can also give you a risk-free start.
Can I track your progress?
Yes. We are transparent about our work and we usually invite our clients to Trello board so you can monitor the progress and give us any additional input if you want to. We encourage our clients to participate in the decision making, but we can also do all of that for you, according the specifications, to save your precious time. You can then just wait to see the final results.
Can I count on your long-term support?
Of course. Everything we do is of the highest quality and you can count also on any support on that whenever you need in future.
