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 software professional 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.
This is how it works:
Get in touch
Whether you’re already a crackerjack independent contractor or just considering becoming one – we have both the tools and the enthusiasm to help you, every step of the way.
Let's get to know each other
We’d love to hear who you are, where you come from, and what you prefer to do. By giving us a few details (like your ideal field, technologies, project length and location), we’ll be able to find you projects that suit you best.
Wait for it
We’ll keep looking around and see what’s out there. Meanwhile, you can just kick back: we’ll find and present you the projects that match your criteria and skill set.
Pick a project
When a certain project sparks your interest, we’ll get you in contact with the client. We’ll also help you prep for meetings and answer all legal and contractual questions you might have.
Name your price
You’re in charge of determining your hourly rate and invoicing us at the end of each month.
If you want to discuss independent contractor work or our services, we’re right here for you. Curiosity alone is an excellent excuse to hit us up!
How can I get myself an Agent?
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?
How about the hourly rate and invoicing?
I launched my freelance career with Talented and had a project to work on from the very first day of starting my company. It was a painless transition from employment to entrepreneurship.
All in all, I have a very positive feeling about Talented. It feels like they really want to know you as a person and find you the perfect project. It also feels really good as a sole trader to have one shield between you and the client, to have Talented to secure you.
Talented acquires interesting and tailored projects without me having to spend time and effort on sales. This way I can focus on my work while my agent does the project hunting.
Talented allows me to focus on doing my best job for the client. That’s my most important goal with freelancing.
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-directing way of working. Our partners, who strongly agree with us, include small startups, game companies, consultancies and large publicly listed companies. Who would you like to work with next?
