Connecting great people to great opportunities

We help product teams find world-class engineering talent to fill their contingent staffing needs.

Our mission is to provide contract developers, designers and product managers the tools they need to flourish.

Raising the bar for contract talent.

When you are an independent contractor, you are the CEO of your own business. However, you are also the Head of Sales, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Financial Officer. It can be intimidating. We understand that not every engineer who desires to be an independent contractor wants to take all that on.

We started Facet to make it easier for exceptional engineers to transition from full-time employee to independent contractor. We do this by reducing the risk, providing support and handling some of the less desirable tasks. Other companies have tried, but have quickly become overrun by low-skill contractors that claim to be experts in their field. This damages the credibility of the entire contract software development industry.

Facet is a new type of contracting platform. We only accept clients that want the very best talent and we only accept contractors that have earned the right to be called a Facet developer.

Our story

Facet was founded in 2011, by two Netflix engineers. They were frustrated by the low quality software produced by vendors when they needed additional dev manpower. Why couldn't they find contract devs that were the same caliber as their full-time co-workers? So they left their jobs at Netflix to build a software development agency filled exclusively with battle tested devs that had already spent years at great software companies - the development partner they always wanted.
