Independent contractors

Focus on working, not finding work.

Independent contractor work offers many perks, but going through contracts or looking for your next project on top of working full hours will give anyone a headache.

Talented Agents will help you when

  • you want to smoothly switch from employment to entrepreneurship
  • you’re looking for your next project in IT
  • you need a hand with contract and law-related questions

And, as a sweet, sweet cherry on top, you’ll have our community of over 2600 software professionals (over 900 active consultants) behind you. We’re quite confident that whatever questions you have in mind, someone in our network will be able to help. 

Our services won’t cost you a dime.

FAQ

How can I get myself an Agent?

If you want to make the most of the outsourced customer acquisition at Talented, all you need to do is to get in touch with our Agents by filling the form. We are able to help mid-senior techies with a proven track record the best as our customers mostly look for these kinds of Talents for their projects. However, developers, designers and other techies of all levels are welcome to join the community.

We want to know all about the technologies and projects you simply can’t wait to get to work with. We’ll set out to find projects that match your skill set and wishes, and present them to you. We won’t be waving your CV around town, but instead we’ll actually check that you’re interested in the project before contacting the client with you in mind.

What kind of projects does Talented have?

Normally our projects are 6+ month on-site projects with 100% allocation, but as always, there are exceptions. Most projects are located in the Helsinki area.

How about the hourly rate and invoicing?

Each consultant is responsible for determining their hourly rate themselves and should invoice Talented at the end of each month. Talented will invoice the end customer. Talented doesn’t charge any commissions or other mysterious fees – for our Talents, our services are 100% free of charge.

Projects you actually want to work on.

Independent contractor work is smooth sailing when the client organization believes in modern ways of working. We’ve chosen all our 150+ partner companies based on their developer-friendliness. We collect feedback from our community to ensure that it’s real and not just big talk. 

We don’t believe in workplace pecking orders and are huge advocates for a self-directive way of working. Our partners, who strongly agree with us, include small startups, game companies, consultancies and large listed companies. Who would you like to work with next?
