Scale up your team with Epicode

Epicode offers clients the opportunity to flexibly hire developers. Our developers are remote based. This means your new colleagues are just as well part of your team just like any other colleague, the only difference being that they always work from our facilities in Manilla.

In these times of remote working this is in fact a far more obvious solution than you would first expect!

Continuity & Commitment

Our developers are dedicated specialists with a proven track record who are in it for the long run: no job hoppers here that will run as soon as a better paid assignment comes available.

Single Point of Contact

The ease of a “single point of contact”: Your contact person with Epicode is your point of contact for all matters except the direct management of your new employee.

Clear costs

The costs for finding and hiring higher educated personnel amounts 6000 euros average per vacancy. for IT related functions these costs are normally even higher. If we look at what it costs to hire a temporary employee with medio development experience, we can conclude that the hourly rates are about double of what we will normally charge. 

 

Did you ever calculate what a single workplace (1FTE) costs you approximately per month? Research from 2018 has shown that by average this is at least 750 euros. Our developers don’t need a workplace in your office, thus saving you about 9000 euros per year. 

 

The total benefit by hiring a developer with us can easily exceed 50.000 euros per year.

The hybrid hiring model by Epicode

Get familiar with the benefits of remote hiring in an even easier way.

By combining our knowledge in the field of Remote Staffing with our many years of experience as a development agency, we have developed a hybrid servicing model for hiring Developers.

How does this work in practice?:

We make a developer from our pool in Manila available and deploy it on your project for a pre-agreed number of hours. The applied rate depends on the number of hours purchased and the discount on the hourly rate increases as you purchase more hours.

In the hybrid service model, we provide project- and people management if desired. If so, the responsibility for delivering the desired end product will also lie with us. We charge 90 eur for project management and control. per hour and calculate this over 10% of the total number of development hours spent.

The main advantage of this package is that you can call on external development capacity, without having to hire a full FTE for this right away.  Furthermore you can also leave the control and project management to us.

In short; flexibility and no-worries on the one hand and a permanently competitive rate and clarity on the other.

This solution is perfect if you need more capacity every now and then, but are not yet ready to hire or hire a full FTE/new colleague for a longer term.

Case

A Python Dreamteam for Fintech company Finqle

In conversation
with

Eik-Jan Klinkenberg
Founder
  • Can you tell us a bit about your company?

    Finqle is a factoring company specialized in building invoice chains with associated debtor financing. We serve a customer base from freelancer to corporate. The software we use is developed in-house. We use a mix of local and Filipino developers.

  • How do you experience working together with Epicode?

    We have been working with Epicode for quite some time now and we have 7 developers in Manila. The experience with this group of colleagues has been extremely positive, for the following reasons:

    • The education level is high. Both in terms of training and technical skills.
    • Due to strong substantive knowledge, everyone can work autonomously. Simply following steps is not an issue.
    • Despite the time difference, the Dutch working day is adhered to.
    • Filipino society is quite westernized. This provides a good connection to our culture and everyone speaks good English.

     

  • How did you got in touch with Epicode?

    As our software team grew, we noticed a discrepancy between the price of the offer and the quality of the offer in the Netherlands. We then started looking for alternatives. After bad experiences in India, we ended up in the Philippines with Epicode. There all the puzzle pieces fell into place.

  • What are the most important benefits following from working with Epicode?

    By working with Epicode we as an organization are greatly relieved, both in time and money. The following aspects are very important to us:

    •  Epicode provides good salaries and benefits. This makes the developers very loyal.
    • Epicode takes care of the first selection, so that no time is wasted on many interviews and side issues.
    • Epicode provides developers with a good office with good workstations and a good internet connection. This guarantees smooth cooperation with the team in the Netherlands.

     Through working with Epicode, we can quickly scale up our tech team without the associated headaches. At the same time, there is a lot of concern for the Filipino employees. They are treated as equal, so that they have truly become part of our organization.
