We require an initial deposit of $500 that will be applied as a credit to your first invoice once you make a hire. If you decide not to move forward, your deposit will be refunded completely.
We make sure to start each engagement with a trial period of up to 15 days. This means that you have time to help ensure the engagement will be successful. If you’re completely satisfied with the results, we’ll bill you for the time and continue the engagement for as long as you’d like. If you’re not completely satisfied, 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.
We allow our clients to begin a trial period with up to two experts from our network per position. While we rigorously vet all applicants to ensure talent and intelligence, we understand that not every person will be a perfect fit for every company. For this reason, we allow our clients to work with multiple experts for each position before they decide on a candidate with whom they are confident and comfortable.
Many organizations face unwanted issues of finding reliable engineers, better communicators, team players, and experts in working remotely along with other specialized personal and behavioural skills.

The client. Optymize’s only business is connecting world-class experts to the clients who want to work with them – not intellectual property. Our contracts provide that all work created by a Optymize expert is the property of the client, not Optymize.
Optymize enters into talent agreements with every member of the talent network. Through these agreements, Optymize obtains exclusive ownership of the work created by the Optymize talent that works with you. We then provide you with the intellectual property for the work that the Optymize talent creates for you under our client agreement. This clean, simple, pass-through arrangement has worked well for our clients for many years. However, if you would like the expert to enter into a direct agreement with you to effect the direct transfer of IP property, we can work with you to ensure that your needs are met.
We typically invoice our clients twice a month, though there is some flexibility here. Invoices are generated with Net 10 terms, so our clients have an opportunity to review the charges prior to processing.
We currently accept all major credit cards, ACH, bank wires, and Payoneer.
