How Optima Forma Empowers IT Talent for Better Careers, International Success and Financial Ease

Updated: Jun 16, 2023

As the IT industry continues to evolve, independent contracting has emerged as a lucrative and flexible career path. Many IT talents know it, however are doubtful to start their independent paths. At Optima Forma we want to make this step easier for IT talents coming from the following background:

  • working hard as senior in lower cost economies

  • with employers who often are less focused on the team members, but more their own wealth and how to create pet projects and side businesses

  • knowing how to work remotely and directly with international European / American customers

In my 20 years of IT experience, I have worked with hundreds talents as I

  • owned my own IT consulting firm in the past

  • have been part of plenty of startups trying to become viable and grow

  • have seen many smaller digital agencies & IT consulting provide services

  • have been a manager-contractor for other companies managing IT / Software projects

My understanding of the relationship between the end customer, the service provider, the talents that work as employees is that:

  • The end customer truly enjoys working with the talented employee and appreciates the hard work and results delivered, however usually has a limited budget.

  • The owner of the service provider mostly is focused on making sure the relationship earns as much margin as possible, so that the owner can fund other ambitions with it.

  • The talented employee works hard for the end customer, but often gets orders from the owners that are not to the benefit of the end customer and usually doesn't see a big part of the margin earned ending up in his/her pay check

The result is often

  • A customer with a software product that could use more sprints, features, work done

  • Big part of the budget is often spent on matters that have nothing to do with the software product or happiness/productivity of the employees that execute the work

  • Employees not happy with their pay check, while they know that they could earn more if they worked directly.

So with that vision I have formed Optima Forma, to establish a much better bridge between

  • Business customers who have software needs, but are less skilled in recruitment / management of IT talent

  • IT talents who know their value, how to satisfy customers and want to get their fair share
