They have consultants do a "short" 2.5 hour test, and there's 3 more steps to the interview process. It's similar in effort to applying to a full-time job, but just for the ability to bid on projects that generally pay below-market rates.
Or, at least, I think it'd be similar in effort to a full-time role. Whoever I was supposed to have an interview with ghosted me.
They also have an unhealthy obsession with hourly rates in an industry where clients want to pay for results.

BEWARE ... CODEMENTOR and now ARC - I got shafted for over 2,000 dollars by this company and they think nothing of doing it. I guess they expect people will not say anything and they can just do what they want. There are A LOT of snowflakes on this site that have an entitlement attitude, DO NOT GET INVOLVED, they need much better parenting apparently. They Know nothing of how life and business really works. Makes me sad for these people, but there are good ones still around, I would check TrueLancer if I were you, I have had much success with them. Good Luck.

Professional outfit with great focus on the customer. The account manager found the right developer quickly - and understands the differences in developer skillsets. The developer is amazing - clearly understands the needs and requirements of the project and implements extremely well, bringing not only great code but new solutions to the table. All parties communicate effectively and often, making this project a breeze. Really exceeded expectations in every way.

FAKE FAKE FAKE company , i do not know who gives you reviews like this , it is very clear that codementor is purchasing reviews .
Simply i'm senior software consultant with experience +14 years in software industry and worked for education at leader international companies located in USA and UK .
Not only that , i'm a founder and president of education company and produced +270 video lectures related to data analysis and machine learning .
In less than one week only there is +5500 students enrolled in my courses with positive feedback .
there are more and more details about me .
I sent all these details above to "codementor" and they replied to me with "MACHINE message" saying your profile is not accepted .
For me it is something funny to reply with this way about my work history from +14 years ago .
FAKE FAKE FAKE company .
Wasted time and effort after build profile .

I am still using Codementorx as I write this, and absolutely love the company. From the onboarding process, to finding and working with the best Developer(s) for my project, everything has been amazing. Any questions I've ever had have been thoroughly answered and the customer service is unparalleled.

This is an unbiased opinion. I am not getting any incentive for this opinion. I would like to let the world know that my dream of writing my own Forex Trading Algorithm has become a reality as a result of the professional programming services provided by Edaqa Mortoray one of the outstanding programmers over at CodementorX. So, if you are like me and is looking for a trusted company to build your algorithm, Edaqa and CodementorX is a great place to start.

Professional and unique in the industry
I've been a long-time mentor on the platform and for a year we are using CMX that helped me build a profitable business. The team is easy to talk to and they are always helpful figuring out the various issues you can face while freelancing.
Without CMX our sales pipeline would've been way less stable and they save over 50 hours compared to other platforms for each deal (this is specific to our statistics).

Got help from a Clinton who then made money transactions outside the website and overcharged me for the work they did and then didnt even deliver the final product fully. Absolute waste of money and terrible service never recommend this site absolute waste.

I was basically forced to go here in search for a gravity forms developer because they have partnered with Codementor. I created a listing, was very specific and paid to have it boosted so I would quickly get responses. After a few days I had a lot of responses and was eager to get the projects I need work on finished. Every single person who responded to my request had absolutely zero Gravity Forms experience. There is not process to people responding and many of them just sent auto response type messages, probably to anyone who has over a certain budget. In the end it was a huge waste of time and money. Just go to somewhere like Upwork and search for what you need. Way better results.

I absolutely love Codementor. I think it’s a real treat for the development community and for companies to hire developers when they’re getting up and running and also scaling.
Emiliano at Codementor has been extremely kind and efficient. I really enjoy working with him and want to continue working with Emiliano and people like him at Codementor.

I usually get high-quality developers that work with me and answer all of the questions that I have for them to help me improve as a developer and produce amazing programming material.

Codementor gathered a shortlist of qualified candidates to help me with some DevOps work. So far, I could not be happier with the results. The candidate I chose is concise, easy-going, knowledgeable, and provided suggestions that I had overlooked for this task. He completed the work within the estimated timeframe, and I have chosen to continue working with him.

Codementor is a breath of fresh air. The entire experience was unlike anything I had experienced before in the last 12 years being in the industry. The team is extremely friendly, knowledgeable and responsive and the talent they source for you is truly world class. I've completely stopped looking in other platforms because the time and money saved for the quality of finished product just cannot be beat. If your sick of the low quality high priced talent on Upwork or the broken customer experience with Toptal then you've got to get on Codementor NOW.

The Codementor team is thoughtful, responsive, and genuinely committed to helping companies succeed. We worked with Codementor when kicking off a major web project that we needed a bit of extra capacity for. Unlike some competitors, we felt that there were real, caring people on the Codementor side. And, they helped us find a wonderful fit. Platform and payments are easy – definitely recommend all around.

We were looking to augment our team with senior user interface development capabilities. Given a startup with a tight budget and having already suffered through some inconsistent delivery, it was important to find not only the skill set but a cultural fit for the team. Paul at CodeMentorX worked thoughtfully to understand our constraints and requirements and delivered a set of excellent candidates almost immediately. We have been engaged with Stuart through CodeMentorX and the difference is night and day. Not only have we been able to progress towards our launch milestone, but we have been able to create a much better platform foundation for the future.
I would wholeheartedly recommend CodeMentorX as a key resource to deliver the expertise to make a project happen.

This company is professional, responsive, and dedicated to keeping their clients happy. They have been swift to respond to me at every stage and they put me in touch with a great developer. Their vetting process has saved me a lot of headaches. I will use them again.

In the vast sea of services providing for-hire remote developers, I am SO glad CodementorX exists. I was referred to them by a mentor of my company, and have never looked back.
CodementorX just *feels* better and less scummy than anything else I've used - upwork, fiverr, recruiters, etc. Everyone I have dealt with at the company has been awesome - and the most important thing, the developer talent is amazing. They go above and beyond to help you make a selection. The guy we ended up hiring could not have been cooler or more talented.

Review by Annonmous Derrow1 year ago
When we set out to find a full-stack engineer, we focused our search in a couple different areas - traditional job posting sites and freelance engineering marketplaces. But we quickly realized that job posting sites lacked the ability to filter out unqualified candidates. And while the freelance marketplaces did a bit better, they recommended candidates that were overqualified, out of our budget, or out of our timezone - or all of the above.
Then we found Codementor. The process of filling our position took less than a week and they found us a superstar. They've had the flexibility to meet our specific needs every step of the way and their customer service has been top notch since day one.
Codementor continues to be our #1 means of growing our engineering team and we couldn't be happier!

If you want to work on the most interesting projects, or have an idea you want to bring to life in the shortest time, CodementorX is the place to go. You can work when you want, how you want, and the wonderful team is always there for you. Would very highly recommend to anyone!

Review by Lanae Derrow1 year ago
As a whole, I think CodementorX does a great job. It has taken a cut-throat industry of online freelancing and delivers a platform that I can feel comfortable using without trying to undersell my talents. Looking into the future, I think my main concerns would be how CodementorX can position itself so that it continues to deliver high quality content to both clients and freelancers. Platforms like Upwork and Toptal started off as decent solutions but ultimately end up where they are today. As a behavior interviewer and a CMX developer who likes to browse listings, it looks like there is already some saturation of ReactJS developers. If I was a ReactJS developer, it would feel a bit difficult to be picked if 15+ people have applied to a job posting. I don't readily have solutions to these concerns I raise but I am confident in CodementorX's future as a place where freelancers can go if they are serious about offering high quality services for a market-range price.
As a freelancer, I had a difficult client on a project who was both overly demanding and did not seem to know anything about his role as a CMX client. He did not seem to know how the billing system worked and the expectations set by CMX. This occurred with another client with whom I interviewed with. The client didn't know that he was supposed to fill out the survey and explicitly express intent to work with me. As someone who is new to CMX, it can be a bit confusing to balance figuring out the platform for yourself and the client.
There are a few platform issues that appear once you start using the CodementorX platform more. It doesn't always seem like the support channels (Contact Us) are the best way to address them since I have sent out e-mails per the instructions there and have not received a response. Here are a few:
1. US Social Security Number - this is displayed as plaintext to the user. I'm not sure if this is PCI data and needs to be encrypted but at least don't show it as plain text where anyone can look over my shoulder to see the last 4 digits.
2. SSO Accounts - I feel disadvantaged as a user who uses Google login versus making a CodementorX account. I can't use the app, my e-mail, etc.
