Which contract types are offered on DL Remote?

Employers on dl-remote.com can offer permanent as well as freelance contracts.

Which skills and abilities are required to sign-up as a tech professional?

Above all, you should have the skills to perform successfully in your job role and you should have a compelling track record which underlines your experience. A solid stack of technical skills is especially important for remote roles, because you often have to act more self-directed than in comparable onsite roles.

Furthermore successful remote workers need to be self-motivated, accountable and proactive to get things done. Communication skills are very important, as distributed teams require more and better-written communication to ensure transparency and productive collaboration.

FOR TECH PROFESSIONALS

FOR EMPLOYERS

How are talents skills verified on dl-remote.com?

Each tech professional on DL Remote submits a profile which is screened by our Talent Reps. We do a first assessment of their technical experience and invite selected candidates to a questionnaire to better understand their skills and preferences. Depending on the role and interest of the employer, we sometimes request another text/voice/video interview with those candidates the employer is interested to have an interview with. This can sometimes help significantly, to further sharpen the pre-understanding of the fit of a candidate for the role and team you are hiring for. Before proposing candidates to an employer we have always had a first remote interview to validate fit for the role.

What is the cost of using DL Remote?

The usage of dl-remote.com to find and interview job candidates is free of charge for an employer, if he/she does not find proper candidates for his/her open positions.
