Howdy hunters! As a contract developer πŸ€“, I got tired of relying on recruiters and sub-par websites that were built for hiring permanent positions. I built wellpaid.io to bring together what I need as a contract developer when looking for positions: * Filtering by remote 🌍 * Rate analysis and trendsπŸ“ˆ * A personalised jobs feed based on my skills πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈ It’s UK-only right now, but you can filter to remote gigs. If your sign up and I’ll keep you posted about an international launch. Excited to be sharing it with you!
This is super cool, I appreciate this :) I wonder how the brand will be perceived to the clients. I'm imagining myself in the shoes of a company that needs to hire an a contract engineer and cringing at the fact that it's values are all about money and payment. As an engineer, fuck yes. As a company, disgust. Second concern is that "high rate" is subjective. $1,000 for some people is low, for others very high. Anyhow, it's an interesting idea and I hope it succeeds. I would use this if there was an international version.
@chrisrxth seconded on the contextual high rate. Possible road map item, @chrisvxd? Allowing users to customize the amounts to filter by? I disagree on the company disgust. Too many companies paint a rosy picture of their organization. If they want to attract high-end talent, pay high-end rates. If they want to retain high-end talent, they can do so by proving cultural prowess during the first contract-term.
@chrisvxd @scottsilvi I absolutely agree that they should pay well if they want to attract and keep talent. But retaining talent is a concern about employees, not contractors. If you want to retain a contractor, you give them a retainer or an employment offer. I'm curious if companies will find the branding clever or tasteless.

@chrisrxth @scottsilvi The context for the high rate is whether it's above or below the expected market rate for _that skill_. I've thought about switching it to something less blunt, like a distribution graph, so people can actually get an idea of how it fits in the market and then make their own call on whether it's "low", "medium" or "high"... but I need to give that some more thought. Re: rates - I agree with you in the context of employees, but I think this is different for contractors. Companies hiring contractors are already prepared to pay the money, and are more motivated by finding someone good, fast. Re: international - that's definitely on the horizon! Sign up to the platform / follow me on PH and I'll shoot you an update when it's ready.

@mastemine I totally misread that as a criticism πŸ˜… I'm certainly hoping to add design skills in the future.
