|This site seems to be pitching itself as the replacement for odesk and elance- where you work with the "top %3 of developers" (who knows how they can make that claim) and they pay you well, because you're the "top %3".|
Has anyone gone thru the process?
The fundamental issue of outsourcing is usually trading quality for low price... given their language towards the developers on the apply page, it seems like this is a sweatshop that doesn't pay well.
But my mind is open. Is it really worth doing? For someone who isn't junior?
(EG: I have several patents, and several decades of experience.)
