Frequently asked questions

  • What exactly does #49 do ?

    As your talent acquisition team, we match you with engineers that are the best fit for you. As your day-to-day facilitators, we deal with the red-tape (contract, HR & payroll), ease your team collaboration and provide your developer access to our community and support.

  • What skills do you cover?

    We focus essentially on web development and software engineering : backend (Node.js, Django, Rails, Spring, Laravel) and frontend (React, Angular, Vue) frameworks. We also source mobile (iOS, Android), devops and data engineering positions.

  • Is there a trial-period ?

    Yes, you have one week following the starting date to make sure it's the right person.

  • What happens if it doesn’t work out?

    We understand this risk, which is why we have a 1-week trial period to help mitigate it. If the developer doesn't meet your standards past that point, collaboration can be suspended or canceled any time with a one-month notice. Of course we'll work with you to find a replacement as soon as possible.

  • Are there any upfront recruiting fees ?

    No. We only require an initial deposit of 1.000€ per position as a credit to your first invoice, to kick-off our researches and operations. If you decide not to move forward, your deposit will be refunded completely.

  • How do you guarantee code ownership and confidentiality ?

    All remote workers sign a detailed agreement which includes confidentiality and IP assignment clauses.

  • Can we hire directly after a successful experience ?

    For the most part, yes. We will work together to establish a mutually beneficial arrangement.

Stop searching, start finding.
