Frequently Asked Questions
Our team's always here to talk it out, just reach out by phone or email.
Are the hires my employees or Fetch's employees?
For labour law and tax reasons, the coder have to sign a contract with a legal entity operating in his/her respective country. And so, we are the legal employer of the coder in their respective countries. However, the same employment contract that Fetch signs with the coder will also be translated and enforced through a legal contract between your company and the coder. On top of that, there will be a legal contract between your company and Fetch to make sure that Fetch enforces the terms in the employment contract.
Though legally they are an employee of Fetch, they work exclusively for your company and they see themselves as a member of your company. Our role is to make sure they are part of the big Fetch family and making sure that the working environment is effective.
Are you sure my employees work exclusively on my product?
Yes, they are your employees! We only deal with non-work related matters like their discipline, admin and finance. Any work you assign and share with your employees is strictly between your employees and your company only.
And unlike many other software development houses which promise similar service, we do not take software projects and so any "temptations" to use your resources to help meet deadlines for projects do not exist in our family.
Can I enforce that my employee(s) signs a NDA?
Yes, you can. We have many similar cases where the coders sign a NDA with the company before starting any official work.
Is there a minimal contract period?
For all full-time contracts, there is a minimal 1-year contract.
If I deem the coder to be ineffective, can I let the coder go any time during the contract period?
According to Vietnam’s labour law, when an employee is in his/her probation period, you can choose to terminate the contract by giving the employee a 1-week notice period. For any employee that have passed their probation, you will need to give them at least 30 working days notice before terminating the contract.
How do you ensure that I can get good quality candidates?
We have positioned ourselves in Vietnam for the past 3 years as a popular placement facility for Vietnamese. We have successfully trained and placed many Vietnamese with high-growth startups in Singapore, Japan and US.
Part of this success is due to our partnership with top programming universities all over Vietnam so that every year, we have batches of top quality students for internships and full-time hires with esteemed companies like yours.
Also, we have our own online programming universities and trainers to make sure that our robust training program prepare the students for real-life work.
In addition, we have our own constantly-growing pool of experienced developers whom we reach out to on a regular basis. Through workshops, mentorship programme, enrichment programs and many more, a strong community and network is established from which you can find all the talent you need.
How do you then ensure that I can get good coders as employees?
We conduct a series of tests and interviews for the candidates. Firstly, all candidates have to go through a series of psychometric assessment and profiling. After which, the selected candidates will have to go through at least 2 rounds of interviews. The first interview will be conducted by Fetch in which we will assess the candidate’s english proficiency, a verification of his profile and portfolio and casual conversation to understand the candidate better. If the candidate passes the first round, he will proceed onto subsequent rounds of technical tests on separate day(s) conducted by our “Masters” whom are all highly qualified working professionals whom have at least 10 years experiences in their respective fields of expertise.
Can I conduct my own technical interview?
Yes, you can. In fact, we always encourage companies with technical co-founder or technical leaders to either conduct online technical interviews through Skype or fly to the respective countries to administer their own technical tests onsite at our nests. This does help with the coders’ understanding of their potential leaders/colleagues and the company.
Can I work beside my team?
Yes, any one from your company is welcome to fly in and work from our nests any working day. In fact, we encourage all companies to assimilate their distributed teams at least once every year by choosing to fly either the entire tech team to your HQ or those at your HQ to the tech team, whichever that makes more financial sense.
What channels of communications do the coders use?
Every coder in the family uses Slack and Skype. They will, however, learn and use any communication tools and channels that your company deem fit.
I do not have technical person in my company and so there are no technical protocols, framework and guidelines in place. How do i ensure that all technical aspect of the business is covered? I really want to focus growing the business aspect without having to worry about the tech side at all.
We know that good technical frameworks, documentation and continuous integration are extremely important for the scalability and sustainability of your product. This may not be our responsibility since you handle all work-related matters with your coders and we do not interfere. But we will take this responsibility if you do need our help. You can request for your team to adhere Fetch’s methodology in software development lifecycle which are being practiced by top performing companies like Grab and we will guide your team in setting up the necessary frameworks, protocols and processes in place.
We want you to succeed as badly as you want to. Because every employee that goes through your door is part of the Fetch family and its our duty to take care and help him/her grow.
Are working device(s) included in your fees?
No, your company decides what devices to get for your team.
Will there be any difficulties in securing equipment for my team since my company is based in Singapore?
No, getting laptops have never been a problem. We can either get first or second-hand laptops from the respective countries from which your team operates from. Or we can assist you to ship your devices to the respective countries.
