Recruitment process

How long does it take to get started?

We are confident that we can always have the right developer ready to work on your company's project within a week. Once your company shows an interest in working with us, we always make sure to present a selection of developer profiles, chosen according to your needs, so that your company can make an informed decision.

What expertise and technologies do you recruit in?

Our network of developers spans a great variety of highly sought-after skills, from back-end specialists working with PHP, Python, Golang and Java to front-end developers working with React.js, Vue.js and Angular amongst others. We also work with designers, QAs, DevOps engineers and even with Data Engineers (Apache Spark, Scala, Python) and Business Intelligence (Qlik Sense, QlikView, MS Power BI).

How can Proxify be sure that it's the developer your company needs?

In short, because our recruitment process is always led by experienced developers and is as comprehensive a vetting process there is, which mitigates the risk of the wrong developer being picked, a potentially costly decision for your company. Choosing not to work with a developer in-house will save money but only if you find the right developer. So, if your company is unsure of what particular skill-set or technical abilities are needed in order to carry out the work you have planned, we are able to help and guide you. We know exactly what to look for. We work only with committed and highly-qualified developers, fully vetted against our own very high standards.

Is there a notice period?

Generally speaking, yes. This can be agreed upon from case to case. We also like to make sure we start with a test period so that you can be sure that the developer matched to your project is the right fit.

Can the developer work less than full-time?

Yes, absolutely. However, in these cases we charge an additional 15% because the developer understandably demands a higher wage when their workload and job security is reduced.

Does Proxify take care of the project leading?

We work only with the best developers to ensure that we can continually deliver projects smoothly and to a high standard. When necessary, we guide both the developers and clients during the project to make sure that an effective collaboration is maintained. All developers recruited by Proxify are extremely self-going and communicative (such factors are a major part of the vetting process) and are therefore easily integrated into your team. However, we also offer project leaders on a needs-be-basis who are experienced in working with remote developers.

Common misconceptions

Technical skills in-house are required in order to work with developers on a remote basis

Although no one can deny that a technical background or programming knowledge would be beneficial for a company working with freelance developers, to consider it necessary for you to work directly with a developer is missing the point in working with remote developers entirely. In order to guide a developer throughout a project, the emphasis should rather be placed on communication. It is the developer's job to understand what it is they will be required to do, according to the requirements that your company has. Furthermore, if necessary we will gladly help your company in getting set up and ready by showing you exactly how we have worked with remote developers successfully in the past.

There is an abundance of developers in Eastern Europe

That there seems to be an endless supply of developers in Eastern Europe is quite far-fetched. Granted, there are increasing numbers of developers originating from this region, but we believe an emphasis should be placed on quality over quantity, which is what we strive to offer. We believe that busy developers, with a history of successful projects, are the developers worth finding and working with.

Remote developers are less loyal

An inevitable outcome of working with developers on a remote basis is that they are not situated in-house to work with. This might make you think that your company loses control over a project's workflow, and this is also why we place such importance on the communication between all the parties involved in a project. We view speedy and effective communication as fundamental to any working relationship. In light of this misconception, we have ourselves experienced that when a developer is given a project to work on, with clarity on its requirements and objectives, he or she is as committed to working as any in-house employee. Essentially, they are working in the hope that more work follows.

The cons of working with remote developers outweigh the pros

Working with remote developers obviously has its advantages and disadvantages. The majority of the companies we work with have acute development needs but lack the financial means to pursue them with in-house consultants and are, like us, enticed by the cost savings attainable by working with remote developers. Hence, our view is that savings of upwards of 60% far outweigh any cons inflicted, particularly when you consider that we guarantee to find the right developer for your company straight away. We would be more than willing to help your company see the many advantages that working with remote developers offers by showing you how we have done it to great success in the past.
