Initprise, LLC fills several roles with full-time employees. However, the majority of roles are filled by highly specialized contractors. Our business model is to assign these highly specialized contractors to very specific individual tasks within a project. Instead of maintaining a staff of generalists, we assign contractors to specialized tasks in which they experts. This reduces “learning on the job” through reading documentation, watching tutorials, and trial and error . This model allows us to get projects done faster and produce higher quality deliverables.
At Initprise, contractors, as the name implies, will work 100% remote with flexible schedules. The only requirements are that you 1) adhere to our strict process and our very high standards of quality, 2) that you commit to a) number of hours per week and b) delivery dates, and 3) that you commit your deliverables along with a progress report daily. Contractors will be expected to study and master our process and quality standards prior to being assigned project work.
