Teilur Talent understands the hidden costs of non-transparent pricing when hiring remote employees. With the knowledge we have built over the years in the American market and Latin America workers, Teilur Talent offers cost-effective solutions and fair salaries, with more than 80% of the payment going directly to the worker - one of the highest percentages in the industry.

While searching salaries and costs in the industry we found out that, unfortunately, some companies like Turing do not disclose this information, which is crucial for building trust between employer and employee.

We have conducted research and estimated the potential costs of working with Turing based on reviews, market value, and our own interpretation of fair pricing for all parties involved: your company, the developer, and the hiring agency. In this article, we attempt to examine Turing's pricing model and compare it to that of Teilur Talent, an alternative that could be a great option for companies looking to hire international tech talent. 

Turing’s pricing model

Developers at Turing are given the opportunity to choose a pay range. However, they are not told how much the client will be charged in the end. Developers are advised by Turing'sexperts on how much to ask for in order to find job opportunities, yet this value is given so that Turing can later add their fees to the final price. Candidates take this advice into account when they give their estimate, without knowing what the final charge to the company will be.  

We have reviewed various sources like ziprecruiter, levels.fyi, simply hired, where developers reveal how much they are being paid: an average of  $56.911/yr.

While the average salary of $56,911 per year for developers includes a wide range of experience levels, from tech sales representatives with one year of experience to senior software engineers with 15+ years of experience, we're  focusing on Turing's average compensation for a Full-Stack Developer.

Based on our research, we found the salary range for this position at Turing to be between $15,000 and $45,000 per year.

At Teilur Talent, we believe that a yearly salary for a Full-Stack Developer should be between $48.000/yr and $78,000/yr. This includes our 20% fee and the rest of the payment (80%) goes directly to our talent.

Our thoughts on Turing's pricing structure  

Transparency in pricing is important for both parties when it comes to hiring remote developers. It ensures that the work expected by the client is aligned with the payment expected by the developer. If the developer is receiving way less and the client paying a lot more the exchange is going to generate friction to both parties. Even though the salaries are high compared to local ones, with the increasing number of companies seeking remote workers, developers want to feel that they are being fairly compensated.

We have come across reviews that discuss the problems caused by the lack of transparency in pricing. For instance, a developer shared their unfortunate experience of discovering how Turing was charging after being hired:

Sitejabber

This review by an ex-employee on Sitejabber explains how they discovered that Turing was taking a significant portion of the payment, up to 55%—even more than what the developer was receiving. After taxes, the developer was only receiving around 35%-40%, while Turing was keeping around 50%.

What matters to you?

In the end, what matters is what you're looking for as a client. At Teilur Talent, we believe that transparency is key to avoiding any unnecessary headaches. That's why we maintain complete transparency from the beginning, outlining our 20% fee and our commitment to paying our developers one of the highest percentages in the market, around 80%.

1

How is Teilur Talent different from other tech recruiting companies in LATAM?

At Teilur Talent, we take a mission-focused approach to recruiting, ensuring that our candidates are aligned with your company's vision and goals. Unlike other tech recruiting companies in LATAM, who may focus solely on technical skills, we prioritize the cultural fit and dedication of our team members to your company. For this reason, we do not support project contractor or freelancer roles. Instead, we focus on fully devoted team members who will help you achieve long-term success. If you are looking for freelancers to complete one-off projects, you probably are better off going to companies like fiver.com, toptal.com or upwork.com.

2

How does Teilur Talent attract and retain the best talent compared to other companies?

At Teilur Talent, we offer our candidates competitive salaries that are 2x to 3x higher than what tech companies would pay locally. This allows us to attract top talent and retain highly motivated and loyal team members. Additionally, we focus on finding candidates whose values align with the purpose, visoin, and mission of our clients. This approach ensures that our engineers and tech talent are not just coding and completing task—rather, they become part of a greater purpose, which gives them meaning and helps us attract and retain the best talent.

3

What are the typical tech roles that Teilur Talent recruits for?

At Teilur Talent, we specialize in recruiting for a wide range of tech roles that are typically in high demand. These include positions such as DevOps engineers, QA analysts and engineers, back-end and front-end developers, data scientists, product managers, business developers, and technical sales positions. Essentially, we recruit for most roles that are needed in B2B and B2C tech-focused businesses.

What are Teilur Talent's fees and pricing structure?

At Teilur Talent, we believe in transparency. We charge a flat rate fee of 20% of what the client pays. This way, our clients know exactly what they are paying for and how much the candidate gets. As an example: If a client hires a software engineer for $60,000 per year ($5,000 per month), Teilur's monthly fee would be $1,000 (20% of $5,000). We don't believe in hidden fees or unwanted surprises, so we disclose all costs upfront to both candidates hired and companies. When exploring other alternatives, make sure they are transparent about their pricing. We believe this is paramount for the benefit of all parties involved in this new era of remote work.

5

What is the candidate screening process at Teilur Talent, and how do you ensure a good fit for my company?

At Teilur Talent, we take candidate screening very seriously. We use a multi-layered approach to find the best candidates for our clients, starting with screening thousands of candidates from our internal and proprietary networks. We leverage AI technology to assess whether a candidate matches the technical skills required for a given job opening. We also perform additional personal evaluations to ensure that the candidate has the soft skills, culture fit, and English language skills required to excel in their new role. Our rigorous screening process ensures that only the best candidates make it through to our clients, saving them time and helping them find the best talent for their teams.
