- General Professional Services Offer
Hi, I'm a Sr. SW Engineer in the Niagara Frontier region. Current rates: 30/hr for retained support to € 60/hr for all inclusive and on-site rate in North America, € 100/hr elsewhere. A minimum of two 8 hour days for on-site in the North-Central US and Canada, 5 days elsewhere, or a flat € 300/mo required to retain my services by new clients and net 30 terms are generally available thereafter. I can normally give fixed cost bids for already well defined tasks. If you are not an experienced technical manager, you may want to keep these facts in mind when considering the cost of IT labor: 1) what it costs for other skilled/ professional labor (e.g. auto mechanics), 2) the well known high risk and failure rate of IT projects; with 30 years experience I can often guarantee my work and generally take a fraction of the time of a less experienced worker and 3) by low balling your work you may end up paying considerably more or not completing the project at all. Also with respect to the focus many buyers have on specific packages, I generally find the time familiarizing myself with a new package is a fraction of the time spent analysing the project requirements, existing codebases, etc. <- Check Availability.

- Canadian Employer ( U.S. one with equivalent benefits or W2 job shop.)
Hi, I'm a Sr. SW Engineer in the Niagara region applyng for the subject job. I am open to being a T4 or W2 employee and have done so recently (as W2) though most of my career has been as a contractor, either independent or thru various 3rd parties. Regardless of the circumstances of hire, I retain an entrepreneurial outlook, and essentially look at these gigs (of which I've had 4 or 5) as 1 to 3 year contracts. My longest association with a single compay was with IBM (as a contractor thru various job shops) over a three distinct periods with a combined length of about 7 or 8 years in the 80s and 90s.
- Recruiter or other Job Broker
Hi, If you are a 3rd party that can't verify your clients interest first using the resume materials to your left, the calendar above, and other web matter so that you can close quickly with me then you are wasting your time here. I generally do not deal with third parties. Recruiters who are hired by an Employer on a retainer basis and of course in house recruiters are an exception (because they're not third parties). Contract shops that aren't essentially Job Brokers are also not third parties (in effect thier clients become the third party). You are welcome to send my resume under your name if you can access it here and I have no problem with your collecting a fee for your efforts. FWIW, this is not a new policy and one I am only likely to refine as I have worked with only 1 or 2 brokers in the last ten years.
