How is TECLA different from other remote hiring platforms?
Although there are several options when looking to hire remote engineers or designers, few of these other solutions actually partner with you the way that TECLA does. While virtual hiring platforms like oDesk, or Elance, focus on putting you in front of a multitude of candidates that haven't gone through any screening or evaluation, TECLA focuses on offering you top talent from our very own Tecla Labs team in Latin America.
We focus on matching you with talent that can really help you grow. In order to keep the high success rate we have, we match you with engineers and designers who our teams have thoroughly screened, tested, evaluated and work with. If we need to hire new team members ourselves, we actually go the extra mile by having personal interviews, as well as technical interviews. This way, we guarantee that you are getting a remote engineer or designer that is highly experienced with the technologies you need, can communicate in English without any problems, is available for a full-time commitment, and can easily integrate with your company's culture.
How does the risk-free trial period work?
Our risk-free trial period is really straightforward. Once you hire one of our engineers, you get a full two-week period to test out what it's like to work with our team. If you are not satisfied, for any reason at all, during those initial two weeks, we won't bill you anything at all, and we'll help you find the right candidate, free of charge.
Even if our matching process is thorough, great working relationships aren't easy to build. For this reason, we will never question your reasons for wanting to part ways with our engineers. The trial period is completely risk-free.
Is it really risk free?
100%. You won't owe any money at all if you decide to part ways with your engineer during the first two weeks. We won't bill for a single hour of work.

What's the process to end a working relationship with a TECLA resource?
Submit a “Request to End Service”. Fill out some details, and that's that. Effective immediately, billable hours can no longer accumulate. You can elect to communicate directly with your engineer to let him know why things are changing, or we can handle the entire process for you.
Are there any upfront fees to hire designers or engineers through TECLA?
The very first time that you hire through TECLA there is a $500 deposit, which will be credited toward your first invoice. This deposit is only required once we have matched you with candidates and you are ready to work with one, or several, of them. Thereafter, there are never any upfront payments to find talent through TECLA.
How much does TECLA cost?
We will always work with you to find a price that works for your budget. Usually, our engagements are more affordable than hiring full-time remote developers based in the U.S., but that is not the benefit we really push. We think of it as a perk, but the real value is in the quality of our developers and designers.
How are payments and invoices handled?
Invoices are automatically sent out every two weeks.
