Is your freelance IT specialist really independent?

Before we show you the profiles of highly specialised IT specialists, we have reliably assessed them as independent through our mandatory Freelancer Compliance Check. This means you can be sure that your IT specialist is acting independently, thinking in an enterprising way and organising their freelance work independently.

Two-part performance check

Is independent service provision possible?

Before placing a project, Etengo analyses your enquiry with the help of the special CA check and verifies whether it is possible for the IT specialist to work independently. This is performed on a project-specific basis by asking structured questions concerning the desired contractual service, the instructions and the IT freelancer’s integration into the organisation. Etengo thoroughly compares the CA check against the current legal situation and continuously develops it.

Is any particular performance owed?

When concluding contracts, we focus on the service description. The Etengo guidelines help us to figure out whether the description contained in the contract constitutes an (independent) service or whether “just” labour is to be provided. This enables us to respond accordingly. We therefore differentiate between temporary staffing contracts and employment contracts.

Contract review

Is there any legal certainty?

For every project, the Etengo legal department checks whether the appropriate contractual documents (both on the customer’s part and on the freelance IT specialists’ part) meet the legal requirements for (freelance) contracts for work and services. This also gives you security.

Contractual term checks

Are contracts being performed as agreed?

Throughout the ongoing performance of the contract, Etengo performs regular checks on whether the requirements of independent service provision continue to be met.

Tried-and-tested quality for every project contract.

At Etengo, we carry out constant checks on the quality of our service in order to guarantee that we can keep our promises on quality.

Guaranteeing the quality of our pool of specialists.

We make careful checks on who we consider as Etengo specialists for our customers. Only one in three DIG.IT specialists makes the cut and successfully qualifies to join the Etengo pool of specialists. The DIG.IT specialists we propose for your IT projects are also subject to continuous qualification controls.

Top-notch recruitment process based on a qualified definition of requirements

When it comes to recording your requirements, we use a standardised system that requests and documents all the important information relating to the recruitment process. This way we can guarantee we get the optimum freelancers for your IT project.

AI-enhanced search: Quality in the selection process.

We have a unique matching algorithm which is constantly being improved in order to help select the specific DIG.IT specialist you need. This guarantees a perfect fit between your requirements and the candidate profiles in the shortest time possible. We respond quickly to your enquiry by submitting up to three hand-picked candidates. As part of our comprehensive quality assurance system, we brief each of the DIG.IT specialists in detail and test their suitability for your project before presenting them to you.

Continuous quality assurance means quality through feedback.

We want you to succeed, which is why our quality and process control systems guarantee seamless cooperation even after a successful placement. We therefore request structured feedback from both you and the DIG.IT specialists. This allows us to maintain the quality of cooperation at the highest level and thus ensure the quality of the joint result.
