Each Facet member sets their own hourly rate. Facet then adds a 20% service fee to the contractor's rate. All rates shown on the pricing page already include the service fee.
The rate a contractor charges is driven by the market and will depend on things like experience level, location, onsite vs remote, skills, role, etc.
Yes. The rates shown on this page are the rates you can expect to pay.
Other freelancer marketplaces add a 40%-100% markup, taking as much as 50% of the billings! This is why other platforms won't tell you what their fees are or what they are paying their contractors.
Facet uses a different strategy - by taking less of the billings, we can pay the highest rates in the industry to our contractors. Since we pay the most, the best contractors in the world are on Facet.
Contractors are happy because they are paid more. Clients are happy because they get the best talent in the industry for less. Everybody wins!
Yes. Most Facet members are willing to negotiate their hourly rate. However, the starting rates listed above are the lower bound of what you should expect to pay at each level. For example, the median rate for a Senior Software Engineer is around $165/hr in the US. Your Facet recruiter can help give you an idea of what you should expect to pay for your ideal candidate.
Yes. Discounts are available for clients that hire multiple Facet contractors.
Yes, you can convert a Facet contractor to a W2 employee at any time.
If the contractor is converted to a salaried employee during the first twenty-four months on contract, there is a conversion fee. If the contractor is converted after completing twenty-four months on contract, there is no conversion fee.
If you plan on converting a contractor to a salaried employee prior to 24 months, you should consider using Facet's Elastic Technical Recruiting Services. You can hire contractors and convert them at any time with no conversion fee.
