OUR APPROACH TO FREELANCERS AND REMOTE EMPLOYEES
As you can see from our many job posts, most of them offering fixed positions, we employ many freelancers and we plan to scale this even more in the future. Freelancers and remote staff are a core part of our company, we don't post these jobs to cover a temporary need, which means that there can be development and career opportunities if you show us your talent, such as managing or leading a team of remote employees.
For this work we will pay 88 US$ per day, that's 80 US$ per day net for you after platform fees. Payments for the month will be released around the 5th of the each month, so for example for your work in June, you will receive your salary on the 5th of July (it could be one or two days late if the 5th falls on a weekend).
Note that it is up to you to research and comply to local regulations and laws in your country regarding your income deriving from freelance work, as well as to pay any applicable taxes. We will not pay additional contributions or taxes apart from your salary.
