Freelance Engineer Job Description
You’ve spent years honing your craft. Maybe you’ve been freelancing for several years; maybe you’re just starting to consider what it would take to strike out on your own. You’re drawn to new, interesting, challenging problems and want to work on them on your own terms – all without sacrificing your (well-deserved) hourly rate, wasting days on billing and business development, or having to accept churn-and-burn gigs.
We’ve been there.
Our founders created Gun.io to make it easier for engineers like themselves to get around the usual headaches of freelancing. From filling and vetting their own client pipeline, to chasing their accounts payable, to scoping and bidding on projects every time they took on a new gig, they knew there was a better way.
TODAY, OUR GOAL IS TO MAKE IT EASY FOR TOP FREELANCERS TO ENGAGE THE BEST CLIENTS.
We do this by eliminating everything from your plate that isn’t the craft you’ve worked so hard to master.
We’ve developed the most human and precise vetting process in the industry, trusted by thousands of software leaders worldwide as a replacement to their own. Once you’re fully vetted, our team hand-matches you with clients – and typically after only one video chat with the client, it’s off to the races. We handle all the paperwork and billing (you get paid weekly, no invoicing required), and manage the engagement throughout to be sure the relationship is enduring.
