STEP BY STEP

1) Specify what kind of IT services are you looking for

  • IT Specialists    
  • Hybrid teams   
  • Project development

Filling out the form is easy and takes only a few minutes. You can also "Book a meeting" and go throught the questions together. The goal is to prepare a "Tender microsite" as you can see in the examples:
Orango BI Sweden, Orango Azure Sweden, Swiss tender, Pentester tender Switzerland, QA Engineer tender Sweden, DevOps tender Sweden, Full-stack tender Sweden

2) We look for the perfect match

After we publish your request to the network, our partners will submit their candidates with expertise and skills that match the role and technologies you look for. You can expect a report with CVs of up to 10 candidates.

  • You will get the Report & Analysis in 7 days
  • Your feedback is expected on the 10th day 

Tender report example:
Orango BI & Azure Report

3) Choose which IT Specialists or Hybrid teams to meet

As easy as it sounds, one week of screening is over and you can hire your new developer or team.

You will choose the most suitable candidates from the received report. The client compares proposals, scores them, and initiates dialogues with the most appealing vendors - It's up to you, the client, to decide. We will help you to schedule a video call with all of the candidates that you would like to meet.

4) Sign Tripartite contract with Nordics IO and your new Vendor

At the end of the process, the client chooses the candidate(s) that will work on the assignment. A standard agreement is signed between the Client, Vendor & Nordics IO. The terms are the same for all and are in line with the European market standards.

  • Nordics IO Success fee
    Nordics IO will be adding 10% of the monthly gross remuneration to the invoice by a Vendor. When total gross remuneration exceeds 200.000 EUR we will be adding 7%.

5) 14-days risk-free period

We make sure to start each engagement with a trial period of up to two weeks to make sure your developer or team will be a good fit for you. If you’re completely satisfied with the results, we’ll invoice you for the time and approve the contract. 

If you’re not satisfied and there is room for improvement from our side, you won’t be billed. From there, we can either part ways, or we can provide you with another expert who may be a better fit and with whom we will begin a second, no-risk trial.

  • Partnership officially approved
    After two weeks of working together you will sign an approval. Vendor is officially accepted and your contract is valid.

6) Partnership has succesfully started

A standard agreement is valid between the parties through Nordics IO. The terms are detailed and specified in the Tripartite contract. In case that one of the parts would like to cancel the contract for legitimate reasons, a notice period is 30 days.
