Working as a freelancer, consultant, full-time employee

As software engineers, we aren’t limited to just one type of employment. Some prefer to have more flexibility and jump from one project to another focusing on short-term tasks, others value stability and like staying with the company for a long time. We could work as freelancers, consultants, and, of course, full-time employees.

What’s interesting, though, is that all these different types of employment have a couple myths around them.

In this episode of Code && Beyond, Pablo and Alex discuss some of the myths and are trying to prove or bust them using their personal experience.

At Code && Beyond, we are not HR experts, far from that, but we have both been onboarded in different companies, as well as helped integrate new developers into the teams we have worked for.
