Screening Process

Many companies — both large and small — face challenges with finding top freelance talent, from candidate qualifications, to team dynamics, to economics that fit their financial scale. Our unique solution for hiring elite freelance talent addresses all of these concerns.

Screened, Matched, Guaranteed

Our thorough screening process allows us to guarantee all our freelance talent. All applicants must undergo an extensive screening process that measures communication, domain expertise, industry experience, and professional skills. To ensure every contractor meets our standards, the process typically takes 2-5 weeks.

1. Individual Assessment

Every applicant is evaluated on their language and communication skills. Applicants also take part in a personality assessment to make sure they are driven and truly 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 Interview

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 gain a complete understanding of 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 happy 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 our customers.
