Among my Czech buddies and contacts there’s rather a large number of good programmers. So, we’re setting ourselves up as a programming shop, doing remote work.
Very much a step up from script kiddies doing a bit of Java, but at this stage all work gratefully received.
We have our first contract (moving an application from the soon to be defunct Google Maps API to another one) and the bods have a lot of experience with consumer facing websites for example (as well as all sorts of useful things like writing code for ROMs and so on). They do the Czech sites for a couple of car manufacturers for example.
And there’s me in the middle to deal with language issues as well.
So, what’s the actual rate for offsite work these days? It’s two decades since I even looked at this so I’ve no idea.
What’s a rate at which people say “Yep, I’ll try that!”?
And do any of you actually allocate such contracts and if you do want to try us out with something?
