What happens after I interview the freelancer?
After you interview the freelancer, you can send them a project offer from the “Candidates” menu option in your dashboard. Once the freelancer accepts your project offer, we run a background check on them which usually takes less than a day. After the background check is completed, we complete onboarding documentation with the freelancer after which they check into your office on day 1 of the project and start working with you.
After the freelancer starts working with you, they will start updating their timesheets, which you can view every day from your Dashboard.
How do timesheets work?
Every day, you would be able to see the hours worked by the freelancer in your Dashboard. The freelancer will submit a weekly timesheet by Sunday. You will get notifications when weekly timesheets are submitted and can view the hours worked by the freelancer during the week. Based on hours worked by the freelancer, you will be billed by SkillSoniq every Monday for the previous week. We encourage you to review the hours worked by the freelancer before they submit their timesheets every week.
Constant communication with the freelancer is essential so that you do not get surprised by the hours clocked in by freelancers.
Can I review my freelancers’ work on SkillSoniq?
Absolutely! Every day, you will be able to see “notes” updated by your freelancers on the app describing what they are working on, any challenges they face and progress made. This will enable you to reconcile their work with the hours they clock in to gauge productivity, and assess the kind of work you are paying for.
How do I pay the freelancer?
You will need to pay SkillSoniq every week by Friday at 11:59pm based on the number of hours worked by your freelancer from Monday through Sunday in the previous week. We provide a consolidated invoice for all the freelancers you have hired on SkillSoniq, so that you have to pay just one entity, as opposed to paying several workers individually. Once we receive payment from you, we will retain a 10% placement fee and pass on the rest to your freelancers. You can pay SkillSoniq with a Credit/Debit Card, through a Wire Transfer or a Bank Deposit.

Any advice for recruiting successfully?
Unlike on most recruitment platforms, our freelancers are always on the go and are actively looking for a project close to where they live. This means that we have a very high interview and job offer acceptance rate on our platform, and you do not waste time screening candidates who are not interested in working with you.
Almost every freelancer you invite for an interview will respond to your offer within a day, either accepting your interview request or stating a reason for declining your interview. Once you’re matched with a freelancer, our biggest piece of advice is to move quickly. Either present a project offer, or cancel the interview process within 5-10 business days. The longer you wait, the more companies and offers you’re going to be competing against.
Where do you source your freelancers?
We value highly skilled candidates or candidates who are willing to learn to get a job of their dreams. We attract candidates through a combination of word-of-mouth, paid and viral marketing. We also have strategic partnerships with top business, engineering and coding schools, such as Dartmouth University, Cornell University, App Academy and Launch Academy.
Can I contact candidates outside of the marketplace?
Yes, after a freelancer has accepted your interview offer, we connect you with the freelancer over email. Thereafter, you can communicate with them over email. However, all offers have to be made on our platform, so that freelancers check-in to your office, complete timesheets and are paid by us on time. If we find that you hired freelancers outside of our platform without our written consent, we will charge you $5,000 and 10% of the amounts payable to freelancers for the first 12 months of such engagement or employment
Do you specialize in a certain industry?
No, our freelancers come from 12+ industry verticals, and hiring managers across all industries hire freelancers from our portal.
How long does it take to hire a candidate on SkillSoniq?
As long as your schedule lines up with the freelancers you are interviewing, on average, it takes 5-10 business days for a company to get started with a freelancer from the time a project is posted on our platform.
Who does the documentation for Freelancers?
SkillSoniq manages 1099, W9 and other legal documentation for all freelancers, so you don’t have to worry about paperwork and regulatory deadlines.
Do you conduct background checks on your freelancers?
Yes, every freelancer goes through a comprehensive criminal, social security and sex offender check on SkillSoniq, before they are placed on a project.
