Lemon.io, a Ukrainian startup that functions as a job marketplace for freelance programmers, was launched in Romania and is looking to recruit 100+ IT specialists from the local market to work remotely on projects for start-ups.
Lemon.io entered Romania and Poland shortly after the beginning of the war in Ukraine to extend their talent pool and reach their goal of 20 million dollars in revenue this year.
The Ukrainian start-up aims to become the main source of income for 1.000 developers by the end of the year. The platform now collaborates with 540+ freelancers from over 26 countries.
The business model of the start-up founded in 2015 differs from the competition by a series of aspects.
Specialists’ rates vary depending on the career stage and the level of expertise and the type of programming language the know. A programmer can earn from 25 to 60 USD per hour or even more, and the payment is made twice a month.
To ensure that only serious and well-trained professionals are registered in the marketplace, Lemon.io has created a 4-step verification process.
Then the team offers to each developer projects which they hand-pick to match area of expertise and interest of every single freelancer.
îIn addition, freelancers do not pay any admission or funds withdrawal commission, the fees being covered by the clients.
