  • Long-term, indefinite contract
  • Competitive salary based on your salary aspiration
  • Government pension fund (40%  from the total income)

What type of contract do you offer?

Our model primarily revolves around what we term as Contractor Plus. This approach retains the flexibility of the contractor model, but also incorporates paid time off, additional life and health insurance benefits, and personal CPA and fiscal advice. This assistance helps you manage your tax obligations in Colombia. Our unique method ensures our collaborators enjoy benefits usually associated with full-time employees, offering the best of both worlds.

In our contractor model, salaries are paid directly from our US entity in USD. This is an especially suitable option if you're a digital nomad  or have other reasons to prefer the contractor model.

However, it's important to remember that even as a contractor paid directly into a US bank account, you're still obligated to pay income tax in Colombia. You should make monthly savings to manage this expense, and you're also responsible for covering your own health and pension based on your total income.

Our innovative Contractor Plus model combines the flexibility of contract work with the benefits of full-time employment. This includes life and health insurance, along with fiscal advice to help you manage your tax obligations in Colombia. With this, you're well-prepared to handle your health, pension, and taxes based on your total income. The Contractor Plus model offers a unique mix of flexibility, benefits, and financial guidance – truly providing the best of both worlds.


How stable are the positions? can I get fired?

We look for companies that want to establish long term relationships, strong companies that are looking to hire in South America for the long term.

When we present you to the position you will get to know the company, their culture, and you will have the opportunity to ask them about their future and plans.

All of our positions are indefinite long term and only in some specific cases we help the hiring-companies with part-time or six months contracts.

That said, we can't control the market or the hiring-company and there are cases when the market goes south that the hiring-company has to let you go, this is not usual, but it is always a scenario with any job you take.

Important to note:

*Hiring-Companies have to notify us with at least 15 days when they want to let someone go, in some cases the notification is 30 days.

*We charge a low transparent fee to maximize your salary, this doesn't allow us to do an indemnization or severance payment when you are let go.

*We charge our fee on a monthly basis and is beneficial to us to have long term-relationships.

What is the English level required?

It depends on each specific position and hiring-company, but you should be able to follow up a conversation so that you can demonstrate your technical knowledge and experience in the interview.

Each position will have the requirements, and we don't ask for certifications or tests, we just want to make sure you can communicate with the hiring-company.
