Screening & Vetting

Are English skills ever an issue when working with Adeva tech talent?

No. Each and every member of our network is fluent in English. Language assessment is the first phase of our evaluation process.

What does the screening process look like?

On the screening side, we evaluate communication skills, personality, domain-specific knowledge, and the level of professionalism.

Our process includes a variety of ways to determine skill and proficiency, including portfolio review, technical coding challenges, formal assessments, as well as live problem-solving sessions as appropriate to the candidate.

On the compliance side, we conduct an identity verification before engaging a candidate with a contract.

Can we apply our own screening process in addition?

Yes, we strongly encourage you to apply your own screening process.


What types of engagements supports Adeva?

There are two types of engagements - full-time (40 hours per week) and part-time engagement (20 hours per week). A minimum engagement length is 3 months.

How does Adeva assure quality?

We make sure to start each engagement with a two weeks trial period. Within these two weeks, any side can terminate the contract immediately - no questions asked.

In the case of a termination, we’ll offer to provide a replacement with a similar skill set within the same salary range that you can choose to accept or not.

Can I convert a contractor to full-time employee?

Yes, you can convert a contractor to a full-time employee at any point throughout the contract.

Can I transfer existing contractors through Adeva?

Yes. We provide an infrastructure for global payments and compliance you can use not only for engineering talent you will contract through Adeva, but with your own talent as well.


As we are a fully distributed network and remote work is the norm - each of the engineering talent that is part of the network is expected to use their own equipment.

In the specific cases where special equipment is required, we assist our clients to purchase and ship the equipment where needed.

Intellectual Property

Do I need to be concerned about confidentiality or IP rights?

Every member of our talent network has agreed to a confidentiality clause in their agreement to keep your information safe and secure.

Who owns the legal rights to the work created by the tech talent from Adeva?

The client. Adeva is in the business of supplying world-class talent, not collecting intellectual property. All work created by any of our world-class talents is a property of the client and that is outlined in the mutual agreements.


What methods of payment do you accept?

Currently, we accept wire transfers, ACH payments, and all major credit cards.
