Who We Are

Imagine if Upwork and TopTal had a baby… it would likely result in an automated platform on which you would not have to sift through the thousands of resumes and bids to find the best talent. They would just be there, ready to go and eager to work on your game-changing product.

The best talent would not have to spend time bidding on jobs that are low pay by inexperienced employers and try to prove their worth through a star rating system that can be gamed.

Made by former Upwork and TopTal staff, FullStackRemote is the platform you’ve been waiting for – access to the best talent, quickly, at a fair price. We don’t even like to call it a price, we prefer revenue share, because we act as your partners. Throughout the entire process from job post to talent selection to engagement we ensure your success.

All our talent is vetted and remote-ready, having experience and skills for remote work plug-n-play

Because the platform is automated, you get access to the best talent without paying the outrageously high fees, like 100% markup. That doesn’t exist here. We are completely transparent.

Our Talent sets their rates, and those are also transparent. We charge a percentage on top of the talent and we have a monthly subscription that allows us to maximize engagement efficiency and happiness.

We charge weekly flat rates for ongoing engagements, which is conducive to the most productive working environments for Employer and Talent.

Vetting Process

While a “top %” ranking is a great place to start (every developer in the FullStackRemote platform is in the top 5% of their stack) it’s actually the remote specific skills, work habits, personality traits and past remote project experiences that help determine the highest probability of remote project success.

We are taking the current broken industry standard expert talent vetting process and flipping it up on its ear! Using a completely proprietary and AI driven process that combines a comprehensive client/project interview & feedback stage with a traditional P2P tech interview / pair programming stage, we are able to accurately calculate each developers RPS Score (Remote Project Success Score) so clients can have confidence not only in their remote developer’s expert technical ability but in their past remote project expertise as well.

About 

With more than 7 billion people on the planet, it’s really simple – the best talent should be matched with the best jobs.  There is no shortage of amazing talent – it’s just not easy to find, until now.  

Remote work means the best talent doesn’t have to be within a commute-radius.  

We have a talent database of highly skilled, highly capable, well rounded talent from all over the planet.  Not just great talent, but great people you want to work with over and over again.  The different between good talent and great talent is exponential.

FullStackRemote was created by ex-TopTal and ex-Upwork employees.  TopTal has great talent, but you pay a premium, and it’s gated.  Upwork requires you to sift through talent for days, test, vet, give trial projects, and find the needle in the haystack.  We have the needles in the haystack, the gold at the end of the rainbow, and deliver the gold to you – without waiting, without sifting, without gating. We’ve already pulled our hair out so you can keep yours.  

Technology can’t replace human interaction, and our chances are greater at finding that perfect match and long lasting engagement when we provide that extra level of connection.  Let us know what you need by posting a job and we’ll hand you the right fit.  97% of the time it works out, but there are a few cases in which needs or personalities don’t match, it happens, and we’ll do an immediate re-match to keep things on time and on budget.  

Mission

We are no longer waiting for the future of work.  The future of work is now.  Remote is the way we work.  

Technology gives access to resources like education and job opportunities.  We believe that everyone who wants to work remotely should be able to work remotely.  

Cross-cultural collaboration gives us more diversity, therefore smarter output, and leading to a more-connected progressive world.  A type of world we want to live in.  

Ultimately, we believe in global wealth distribution and economic opportunity not based on geography.  

Imagine .. what we can create and the impact we will have when the planet puts its greatest minds together and when local economies have greater cash infusions.  

Our mission is not only to find the best talent, but to put the greatest minds to work and have money geographically distributed and ultimately a more peaceful, more connected planet.
