Access skilled, motivated, and cost-effective talent on a project-by-project basis.
What We Do
Roadmap Talent is dedicated to helping highly talented individuals with digital skills “get their foot in the door” in their desired career paths by matching them with relevant projects for organizations. Organizations are given on-demand access to a cost-effective and skilled tech community that is chiefly motivated by building experience, connections, and knowledge.
Roadmap Talent partners with a variety or organizations including established companies as well as early stage startups. The main focus of Roadmap Talent is not to provide access to financially lucrative projects but to help people build up experience while adding value to an organization. Projects may be paid or unpaid. That said, we do encourage the organizations we partner with to pay if they are in a position to do so.
No. There is currently no cost to either the individuals seeking experience or the organizations seeking personnel for their projects.
In these corona-times most of it is. There will likely be more of a mix of on-site and remote opportunities once the public health situation improves.
We may make introductions to such opportunities, but we will not be involved in any regulatory or other such issues involved (e.g. work permits, taxes, etc.). These are issues that the talent and organizations will have to work out separately with each other.
Roadmap Talent provides access to cost-effective talent for the completion of your organization’s short term projects. For organizations with longer term talent strategies, it also offers a way to build your talent pipeline and to become acquainted with candidates for long-term positions before deciding to hire them full-time.
Additionally, organizations can be involved solely for the sake of contributing to a cause that produces a positive impact on society. By giving people opportunities to develop experience, you enhance their chances of attaining their career goals.
If you want talent sources by Roadmap Talent to work on a project with certain sensitivities, it is important for you to use your organization’s systems to ensure your organization is protected. This may require you to ask the person you hire for a project to sign your non-disclosure agreements, etc.
Many of the candidates may already have the skills you require to complete your project, but simply have not yet had the opportunity to prove their strengths in those skills for an organization. While their work experience may be limited, they are screened for suitability for your project based on their own projects, coursework, and other related experience.
Regardless of whether your organization pays or not, we ask that you structure a mutually beneficial relationship. Elements of such a relationship may include providing a good learning experience throughout the duration of the project, being willing to offer useful feedback, being willing to write a good reference for high-quality work, etc.
Paying people often enforces the sense that there is value in the work that they do. (Of course, ‘value’ does not necessarily have to be measured only on financial terms, but for many people it certainly plays a part.) Paying people also enforces the obligation for people to do well in their assignments because there is a very clear transaction that is occurring. We appreciate that some organizations are not at a high level of maturity or have budgetary constraints for non-standard hiring. If your organization is not in a position to pay much or at all, you are at least encouraged to emphasize a mutually beneficial relationship.
