Common questions

Recruitment process

+How quickly can I start working with a remote gig professional?

If you are a first-time customer or existing one, the journey is slightly different.

If you are a first time customer, it will take about 3-4 weeks to get up and running with a remote gig professional. During this time, first-time customers sign master agreements, set up their accounting, select freelancers, and engage with the right talent.

For existing customers the process is shorter and normally takes about 2-3 weeks, since contracts are already in place and all parties are available to start.

+Is there a trial period and how long is it?

You have a 10-day trial period for every first three-month contract with a freelancer. You can cancel the contract without any charge during that period.

Exceptions to the rule are made for short-term engagements (less than a month) with senior consultants. Such contracts can be cancelled at any time without prior notice, and the tracked hours will be fully reimbursed to the freelancer.

+Where is your talent located?

GigsRemote talent is located mostly in Eastern European where the countries have traditions in innovation. Our talent is highly skilled, innovative and delivers an unmatched cost-to-quality ratio.

+How do you select your talent?

Our talent undergoes a rigorous selection process. This includes initial vetting interviews for soft skills, technical interviews and additional tech tests.

The vetting process starts after gig candidates sign up. We examine their CVs, national ID, background information from past employers and networks, as well as personal recommendations.

We conduct an initial online interview, in order to verify the freelancer’s identity, assess their communication skills, English level proficiency and general motivation to work as a remote contractor. In addition, we assess whether the person is a team or a single player, and their experience of working remotely.

We conduct online tests and technical interviews aimed at assessing their technical skills. This allows us to decide on the freelancer’s seniority and advise them on adequate fee expectations.

As a customer you will receive executive summaries from the vetting process. These will also help the further development of our freelance talent.

+What skills do you cover?

Our freelance talent have proven track records in Software Development, Project and Product Management, Quality Assurance, Data Science, Technical Writing, Design and Software Architecture.


+How are you different from an HR agency?

Firstly, an HR agency would normally take 2-4 months (including selection time, interviews, offer, notice periods, etc.) to complete a typical hiring process.

With GigsRemote the time to engage a remote freelance talent usually takes up to 2-4 weeks.

GigsRemote engages a pre-selected pool of talent ready to start on a half/full-time schedule at short notice. Traditional HR recruitment is a much more weighty process that includes resignation and employee induction cycles.

Clients & projects

+Do some of the freelance talent work elsewhere on labour contracts?

Some of our gig talents may have permanent full or half-time labour contracts with other companies. However, their time slots for additional work are prioritized and organized in such a way as to avoid any conflict. This is well documented in their profile, and visible during the selection process.

In most cases, our remote talent can start work quickly and work on half/part-time contracts.

+How do you avoid conflict of interest (e.g. freelancer working for a competitor organization)?

All our customers sign a Non Disclosure Agreement (and other agreements) with the freelance talent, as well as GigsRemote purchase orders.

Talent would normally have signed an agreement not to engage with competitors as part of their labour contract. Furthermore, during the selection process we will disclose the name of the company which the talent is working for in order to double check and avoid potential conflicts.

+If I start with a half-time engagement, can I switch to full-time later?

The short answer is Yes.

Starting with a half-time engagement gives you the chance to see if the talent is the right fight for your project and organisation. Over time, as you build up mutual trust and enjoy the results you are getting, as well as more predictability, then the next natural step may be to take your engagement to a full-time schedule.

+How many different projects and companies can a freelancer work for?

Each freelancer can work on three half-time contracts, or one full-time and one half-time contract.

Full-time exclusive projects are also possible, but contractors may want to have stronger customer commitment.
