Our Designer Vetting Process
Our thorough vetting process allows us to guarantee all our Talent. All applicants must undergo an extensive screening process that measures communication, domain expertise, industry experience, and professional skills. The process typically takes 2-5 weeks to ensure every contractor meets our standards.
1. Individual Assessment
Every applicant is evaluated on their language and communication skills. Applicants also take part in a personality assessment to ensure they are driven and genuinely passionate about their work.
2. Full Skills Evaluation
Applicants complete a series of assessments to test their problem-solving abilities and skills. To be accepted as a FlexTal™ contractor, applicants must prove their level of expertise, and only those who pass with outstanding results advance to the next step.
3. Live Interviews
Senior-level domain experts interview every applicant to test for domain knowledge, creativity, problem-solving, and communication skills through live exercises. Our screeners also review their resume, portfolio, and references to understand the applicant’s background and ability to deliver customer success.
4. Trial Jobs
In this stage, applicants will be given a trial job to complete that will evaluate their ability to perform. A trial job will typically take 1-3 weeks to complete and offers the applicant a real-world scenario to demonstrate their expertise, attention to detail, and professional qualities.
5. Continued Success
We care that you’re consistently happy with your contract talent and their work. To guarantee you’ll be satisfied with your experience, every contractor has a track record of continued customer success. Flextal™ is a customer-success-focused organization, and we vet both sides of the market to ensure we create the perfect match between our contractors and customers.

Of the more than 100,000 people who apply to join the FlexTal network each year, fewer than 3% make the cut.

We currently accept all major credit cards, ACH, and bank wires.
FlexTal enters into work agreements with every member of our talent network. Through these agreements, FlexTal obtains exclusive ownership of the work created by the FlexTal talent that works with you. We then provide you with the intellectual property for the work that the FlexTal Talent creates for you under our client agreement. This clean, simple, pass-through arrangement has worked well for our customers for many years. However, if you would like our talent to enter into a direct agreement with you to effect the direct transfer of IP property, we can work with you to ensure that your needs are met.
