Turing vs Gaper: Choosing the Right Software Engineer Marketplace

In this day and age, remote hiring is more popular than ever, and the most prevalent way of finding software developers for hire in particular has become searching through digital services. 

Turing is one of the most popular software engineer marketplaces where businesses can hire developers who have already been vetted for them from around the world, and has garnered a significant reputation for itself.

Similar to Turing is Gaper, a burgeoning company which screens software engineers to ensure that all those who join their teams are properly qualified, and can be hired by any business that needs their services across the globe. 

While Turing and Gaper are both trustworthy and reliable options for hiring software engineers, this article aims to take a look at both companies to show how someone may decide to choose the right software engineer marketplace for their needs based on just exactly what both companies have to offer separately.

Access to services

Both Turing and Gaper have a similar hiring process. However, there are differences which affect how quickly a business will be able to access their services, and this is important to consider when choosing the right marketplace for your business.


Hiring software developers through Turing can take from 3 to 5 days. This is the time taken to match up business clients with an available developer who also fits their criteria, and after they are connected through Turing, they can begin to collaborate.


With Gaper, the process of accessing the company’s skilled developers takes 24 hours. After filling out a form, business clients are set up with a call with their team. They are then matched up and can get to work immediately.


While both platforms offer highly skilled software developers, there is still a difference in how much they cost a business. Neither of them are the most expensive platforms out there, but nevertheless their pricing is not identical, and have their own quality to cost ratios.


With Turing, a business client does not have to pay any upfront costs, and the company’s pricing is different from other platforms’ because their engineers set their own hourly rates. These rates are dependent upon the demand for the developers’ skill sets, as well as factors such as the state of the market at a certain time. 


Gaper is one of the more affordable choices, and the friendlier cost does not mean that businesses are missing out on qualified talent either. They provide hourly rates which start from $30 an hour, without any fixed deposit necessary, and offer a 2-week risk-free trial, after which clients begin paying.

Recruiting process

Both Turing and Gaper have rigorous screening processes in order to vet the different software engineers that they hire. However, the different methods that they utilize could be an important deciding factor to some.


Turing offers a large marketplace of over 2 million software developers and engineers from 150 different countries. They are most known for their use of an AI-backed “Intelligent Talent Cloud” to vet and match developers with appropriate jobs. This process also involves having candidates complete comprehensive tests.

After potential Turing developers upload resumes and create their profiles, they take an MCQ test which assesses their work experience. Following this, a coding test is taken in real-time, and then a final MCQ test is taken to assess the candidates’ knowledge of tech stacks.


Gaper claims to work with only the top 1% of engineers due to their meticulous vetting processes. The business is also powered by AI, and their process is divided into a series of tests along with interviews.

Developers upload their resumes and basic information, and then undergo a skills based assessment. After this assessment is cleared, they are thoroughly interviewed before making it into the final pool of candidates who go on to be eligible for hire by Gaper’s business clients.
