Hiring any type of independent contractor carries a number of considerations that businesses will want to be aware of. However, before you even consider hiring someone, you need to first figure out what role you want these developers have in your company.
Are you looking for a developer for a one-time job, or possibly continued work over a period of time? You may also want to think about how much information a developer will gain on the inner-workings of your company, and whether it would be an issue if such information was used/disclosed when the developer accepts other employment.
Ultimately, your best bet is to consult a lawyer who can draft the necessary documents. An employment lawyer or a startup lawyer will have a good deal of experience drafting these types of agreements and will have a good understanding of what you will need to include.
When looking for a lawyer, there are couple of factors you should keep in mind:
1. Price: You do not pay insane legal fees for simple contract drafting. So you should make sure that you get a couple of prices before you make your selection. As a client, you should always strive to get the best legal representation at the lowest cost.
2. Experience: Your lawyer should have experience drafting employment/independent contractor contracts. Most likely you will want to think about non-compete agreements and terms of payment/working conditions.
3. Business Minded: Also, you want to find an attorney who will keep your business interests in mind at all times when working with you. Obviously it will be beneficial for you to have someone who can foresee certain aspects of your developer’s employment and help you draft the best instrument.
