How do I get work completed on BrainHire?
WORK DIRECTLY WITH YOUR BRAINHIRE CONSULTANT
Congratulations, you are now officially tackling your business concerns. Use our milestone feature to track progress and discuss updates. We make it easy for you to communicate regularly.
PAY ONLY WHEN THE PROJECT IS COMPLETED
Brainhire securely hold your payment in escrow until the project is completed to your satisfaction. This protects both you and our consultant.

Funds are not released until both you and your consultant agree that the project or portion of the project is complete.
BrainHire is a virtual workplace that connects highly skilled business experts with a variety of organizations- all with complex business problems. SkillQuo gets an array of companies from startups to Fortune 500s, covering a wide range of industries and functions. Typically, our clients are startups to mid-size companies that cannot afford the traditional consulting firm fees of $350 per hour, but they have just as high a need (probably higher) as their established counterparts.
You have access to the best and brightest minds to solve your tough business issues. This isn’t just a marketing slogan for us. Most of our consultants are from top MBA programs with an average of 10 years of experience. BrainHire stands by our stringent vetting process that ensures only the highest caliber of consultants. Secondly, with BrainHire freelancers, you pay only by project. When the project is finished, so is your commitment and payment. For more information on benefits for you, visit How It Works
Visit www.brainhire.com and fill out our user-friendly business profile form and project template, which will ask you about your project needs, desired consultant qualifications, timeline, and budget. Once you post a project, we will quickly review your posting to ensure it’s completion and clarification. After that, you just sit back and wait for bids from our highly skilled experts. One of our BrainHire staff members will reach out to you to see if you need help with the consultant-selection process.
We target top web developers, designers and creatives, financial analysts, expert marketers, and other highly skilled professionals. We look for a strong professional and/or academic trajectory of achievement. We look for professional, completed linkedin profiles with recommendations. In some cases, we perform a thorough reference check (and even background checks for certain full-time positions if requested by the employers. Consultants are informed, and consent requested before performing these checks). Take a look at our current expert profiles, and you will get a great idea of the high caliber of individuals that are currently within our site.
We have projects that are a few weeks in length to a few months, projects which take up as little as a few hours a week to projects that are 20+ hours a week. Article Writing. Web Site Design. E-commerce Site Development. Mobile App Creation. Video Creation. The list goes on!
We pride ourselves on being more than just a virtual platform. We are a community that engages our consultants and clients alike. From the minute you register a project, one of our BrainHire experts will reach out to you and provide help from start-to-finish. We also provide customized, tailored support for projects larger than $10,000.
First of all, we would refrain from the use of word ‘bidding’ which means, lower bid wins. We truly believe that quality comes at a price, and it’s not the bid, but the value of the consultant’s experience that is critical to the success of the project (and in turn BrainHire). We do not restrict consultants from putting estimates higher than the client budget, rather we highly recommend that they place their estimates based on their hourly rates and the expected project duration (hours required). We do have a minimum rate/hour requirement ($70/hr) and minimum project budget ($250 minimum).
When clients post a project on BrainHire, with a detailed description, timeline, budget and desired consultant qualifications, BrainHire freelancers will be able to browse for active project postings and provide estimates on projects which are suited to their expertise and experience level. Also, we have a matching algorithm that connects and recommends consultants and clients.
This varies by client and their level of urgency. Our BrainHire team is automatically flagged for prolonged open postings, and we will diligently aid our clients to either make a selection or close out their project after an appropriate period of time.
Our BrainHire team is well equipped to help mediate any issues which may arise. However, we ask our clients to diligently vet out their potential consultants and detail out their projects in terms of expectations, delivery timing, and budget. We also encourage our consultants and clients to communicate when there seems to be a change in scope mid-way of the projects, so that either the project scope stays within the original request OR budgets and timelines can be adjusted accordingly to accommodate new changes.
One of our key target segment is Boutique consulting firms, and we support them in staff augmentation and full-time hires. We have a dedicated business development team that specializes in working with Boutique consulting firms in understanding your resources requirements and finding the right candidates for you. We do require an individual from your firm to signup as a representative, and complete their profile on BrainHire(do mention about the size of your team and your areas of expertise, so we can assign the right projects to you).
When you launch a project and hire a consultant, BrainHire immediately collects the entire fee and holds it in escrow. This protects the client, as it ensures that consultant will be paid only upon successful completion of the project. Depending on what the client and the consultant agree, the consultant will either be paid in one lump sum upon completion or in increments depending on milestones completed for longer term projects. For this, BrainHire offers a convenient milestone tracking feature. This fees of 7% is deducted from the payment made to the freelancer. For example, if the project payment is $1000, BrainHire retains $70 and Consultant gets paid $930 at the successful completion of the project. If you hire a consultant full-time off our site, we will charge you a 10% fee of their first year of salary. The only fees charged to the client are the payment processing fees that are charged by the payment processor Paypal, or Stripe. These fees are pass-through and are not BrainHire fees.
