Freelancers at 10Clouds – Why You Should Join Us!
03.10.2023 | 5 min read
There's no shortage of opportunities in the dynamic world of software development. For software developers, one key decision is whether to embrace the freedom of freelancing or opt for a permanent contract. While both paths have their merits, we’ll take a look at why developers are viewing freelancing as a way of unlocking their potential. At 10Clouds, we have both permanent team members and freelancers, who form an integral part of our community.
Freelancing: empowering developers to thrive
Below are just some of the advantages that freelance developers can enjoy at 10Clouds:
Unparalleled autonomy: Freelancing provides professional autonomy that is hard to match in a traditional setting. You can apply to our freelancers’ marketplace for any advertised position and be assigned to various interesting projects. We then contact you with the project details, and you can choose whether you’d like to be part of that specific team. This autonomy fosters creativity and empowers developers to work on chosen projects in their flow of working hours or workplace.
Infinite learning opportunities: Freelancers have the luxury of cherry-picking projects from various industries and technologies. This diversity of experiences translates into an ongoing learning curve that sharpens your skills and keeps you on the edge of software development trends. At 10Clouds, we’re engaging freelancers with most of our teams at different stages.
Every freelancer who works with us has the choice of becoming our long-term partner to get regular assignments. We have highly skilled specialists representing different knowledge areas, including development, product management, and design. Our freelancers also are able to benefit from other departments’ expertise through knowledge-sharing materials and through being a part of our 10C community.
Limitless earning potential: Freelancers at 10Clouds have the potential to earn more than their salaried peers. Why? The ability to focus fully on billable hours means working directly with the clients, taking on multiple projects simultaneously, and scaling your income as you grow.
Networking and portfolio building: Freelancers actively engage with various clients and projects, rapidly expanding their professional network. This not only opens doors to new opportunities but also enriches your portfolio, making you a more attractive candidate for future customers. Also, freelancers can simultaneously work with various companies, as long as they are in line with their NDA and contractual agreements.
Having your own company: At 10Clouds, we’re interested in working with freelancers who are self-employed (have their own company). The rest is down to you – you can freely choose how to manage your workload and company growth.
But what about job security and benefits?
Job security: Freelancers are sometimes seen as living on the edge, but in reality, they have more control over their job security than they might realize. By cultivating a diverse client base and delivering exceptional work, freelancers can build a stable and reliable income stream. It's also worth noting that job security is increasingly elusive in the traditional job market.
Benefits: While permanent employees may enjoy benefits like health insurance and retirement plans, freelancers have the freedom to choose their own benefits package. You can tailor your insurance coverage, invest in a retirement plan, and create a benefits package that suits your specific needs. Also the freelancers’ salary ranges are higher which means that you can choose whether you need to invest in particular benefits to suit your needs.
The freelance lifestyle: A smart choice for developers
Freelancing is not just a career choice; it's a lifestyle choice. The advantages of autonomy, learning opportunities, and limitless earning potential make freelancing an attractive proposition for software developers. It allows you to fully harness your skills, talents, and creativity while maintaining control over your work-life balance.
In the software development world, where adaptability and staying ahead of the curve are paramount, freelancing provides the ideal platform for continuous growth and personal fulfillment. So, if you're a software developer seeking a career path that aligns with your ambitions and aspirations, consider taking the leap into the world of freelancing at 10Clouds.
Embrace the freelance advantage, and you'll discover a world of opportunities waiting to be explored.
