As a new startup founder, finding reliable developers is quite a chore. After trying upwork and other freelancing platforms in an attempt to find someone reliable yet relatively cheap, I have realized one hard truth which is that you get what you pay for.
By working with Gun.io , my experience has been phenomenally better than with previous hires through other freelancing platforms. Yes, it is more expensive, but because of how intelligent, efficient, and reliable my developer is, he gets work a lot of work done in shorter time frames compared to past developers I've hired. So, while my developer may be twice as much per hour, he gets around 3 or maybe even 4 times the amount of work done compared to past hires of mine, ending up SAVING me a lot of money, time, hassle, and stress.
No doubt I will be retaining my developer from Gun.io for the entire duration of this project.
Secondly, having an overhead who manages the project (payments, hours, ensuring developer is getting work done on time, etc) also makes things a lot easier on myself, as it ensures work will get done on time, and ensures the developer will stay accountable for what I am getting billed for.
