In addition we always ensure that our developers can do their work in a modern workplace with laptops, headsets and good coffee. All the hard work should of course be rewarded. That is why we also organize various teambuilding events, themed celebrations, meetups and parties. The appreciation and job satisfaction is something that we value as crucial to achieve an optimal collaboration.

Continues improvement for a sustainable collaboration

Since we function as your eyes and ears, we want to be well informed on the remote developers performance. That is why all of our developers are methodologically evaluated every six months. In these evaluations we not only evaluate within the team. The costumer and the developer himself also fills out the evaluation. Discussing motivating development goals and salary increments are also part of this evaluation. By doing thi,s we guarantee the long-term deployability of our remote developer and the stability of the remote team.

Flexible terms


We use fixed monthly rates per developer. The monthly sum contains the developers salary and our service fee. At SharpMinds you sign for a Dutch contract. That is why you also receive a Dutch invoice. Because we trust in our solution, we are happy to offer you extra flexibility in our contract conditions. For instance, the collaboration can be terminated daily during the first two months. After this period the contract can be terminated monthly for each individual employee. We will never charge you with recruitment costs.
