As compared to a freelancer who usually juggle between multiple projects or maybe even has a part-time job, the developer assigned to you would be dedicated strictly to you. All our developers work with Tacktile Systems as Full-Time Employees.
Typically a developer works for 8 hrs a day for 5 days a week and you are billed for 40 hours per week.
You will need to hire multiple developers from our organization itself, because typically a skilled Android developer won't be very good at developing iOS apps or RESTful services.
Sorry, but we don't support the hybrid app philosophy and we won't be able to help you with such projects. We take up only native mobile apps development project.
You will NOT be billed for days on which developer took a leave OR did not work on your project for some reason. Typically the developer will keep you informed of such a scenario beforehand, except of course if he falls ill or if it was an unplanned leave.
No . Sorry , since we offer developers strictly on full-time basis, developers can only be hired in multiples of 40 hour weeks.
You may discuss the same with your account manager and discuss the possibility of working with another developer or discontinuing the engagement altogether. All the work done so far until that point would belong to you and you would be invoiced only for upto that day. In cases of extreme dissatisfaction , you may appeal for waiver of entire charges accrued that week.
If the invoice is not settled within a reasonable time of 2-3 days, we may need to pause the project, until previous invoices are cleared, especially so for short-term or new engagements.
You can hire developers on hourly basis at the rate range from $8 to $10 per hour. For longer term engagements we will charge $8 per hour. For shorter engagements lasting only 3-4 weeks, we will charge $10 per hour.
We will raise an invoice at the end of every week, you can pay us using Paypal. Invoices will be raised in US Dollars. In case you are not from USA , you may consider using currency conversion services offered by Paypal, which may cost extra, but the same must be borne by you. So for a long term project on iOS platform, you will be billed for roughly $320 per week ( $8 per hour X 40 hours ), which you will settle upon completion of each week.
Tacktile Systems will bear all taxes levied by Indian government. You must bear any taxes levied by your government.
We respect your intellectual rights and are willing to sign NDA as long as it is fair to both parties and not overly restrictive.
You will be required to interact directly with the developer and manage the project using agile / any other methodology of your choice. You will have Skype and email details of the developer.
Typically if you hire more than 3-4 developers at the same time, you may be wanting to hire a dedicated project manager, or you may even consider delegating project management to one of the developers already hired by you.
At Tacktile, we know our job is not finished upon the successful delivery of your app. Once your app is published on the market, you may wish to monetize the app, carry out continuous improvements, manage support requests or even study the competition for what your product is lacking. Our team can help you realize these objectives.
