Our Rates Are Posted

Our rates and salary requirements are posted at Smart Rate Finder.

  • The Senior column in the first table tells you our salary requirements.
  • The right 3 columns in the second table tell you our rates, which are determined by the salary, which is determined by the Job Title in the first table.
  • If a per diem is added, our rate will be adjusted downward.
Prior to any agreement, our rates and salary requirements are subject to change without notice.

Fair Pay

If you pay a contractor $48.08 per hour, you would have “paid” an employee around $61.30 per hour.  This is because of employee cost overhead.  So, no, an hourly contract rate of $48.08 should not be converted into a salaried job paying around $100,000 per year.  Rather, it should be converted into a salaried job paying around $127,504 per year.
