Frequently asked questions

We have a commitment to transparency, and have listed some of the most frequently asked questions below.

Is Mersenne a development agency?

No, Mersenne is a platform connecting developers and companies. The developers are all independent contractors. This allows us to make the best possible match without having to worry about balancing hiring enough people while still having everyone assigned to projects at all times. This is an issue for traditional development agencies, ultimately leading to higher costs for the customer.

What is Mersenne's role in the projects?

We staff the projects, we don't manage the projects. Ideally, you already have your own development team, process, and project management in place. We want to add to what you already have. Our belief is that you are the domain expert in whatever it is your company does, while we are experts in getting you the best possible team of developers.

Where are the developers based?

Our developers are based all over Europe. We don't have a certain geographic preference. This reduces the risk of development projects failing in case of pandemics or geopolitical disturbances. The developers work remotely from their homes, co-working spaces, or similar.

How does pricing work?

No recruitment fees or upfront charges. You only pay for the number of development hours performed by the team you have hired. Mersenne's platform features a transparent price negotiation flow and all invoices clearly state exactly how much the developers are getting paid. Mersenne charges a percentage fee on top of the monthly invoice total. Developers never pay anything.

What is the hourly rate?

Depends on the individual developer and what has been negotiated. Hourly rates depend on seniority, technology, and various other market conditions. We work to reach a fair market price for the developers regardless of where they are based.
