How Does Field Engineer Work?

Field Engineer is a new way to find the engineers and freelancers you need to do work at your business. Rather than having to take on a new person full-time or hire an agency to do work for you, Field Engineer’s freelance marketplace connects you directly to talented people with vetted skills who can get the job done.

For firms, the process of Field Engineer is simple. All you need to do is sign up to the platform on the web, and then start posting jobs, providing as much relevant information as possible. Once you’ve posted a job, some of the 40,000 engineers and freelancers on the platform will start bidding for the work, along with their star-ratings and reviews from former employers. You then get to select which freelance engineer you want to hire for the job and, following their approval, work can begin right way.

What Kind Of Work Can Freelancers On Field Engineer Do?

Good question: Field Engineer specializes in providing a platform for engineers in the telecoms and computer industry, providing companies with the support they need to keep their systems online and up-and-running, no matter where they are in the world. You can find all sorts of engineers on the platform, from Juniper specialists to those who know how to manage and maintain wireless networks.

What’s The Difference between Traditional Employment and Field Engineer?

There is a reason why many companies now choose Field Engineer to get the talent they need: it provides a far superior employment model to traditional methods. For starters, the platform virtually eliminates search costs usually involved in finding the right people. All you need to do is tell the platform what sort of freelancer or engineer you need, and it will automatically alert relevant people: no need to pay an expensive recruitment agency.

On top of this, there’s the reduced cost that comes from only paying for the work that you need doing.

You get “on-demand” labor, which you stop paying for the moment the work is complete.
