How we work
Autonomic is a hive mind of 13 people around the world turning gentle chaos into websites, infrastructure and design. We share 1 email inbox, we make decisions using consensus and we all get paid the same.
How we work with clients
We prefer to work with organisations and projects who share our values.
Our preferred contact method is email. It may take us a week or two to respond to initial queries, depending on how much work we have on.
Our agreements are usually in the form of:
|Retainer||Clients pay us up-front and we work on a list of tasks at an agreed upon hourly or daily rate, until the retainer is used up.|
|Flat-rate||We give clients a quote based up their needs and we deliver on it. Clients pay up-front or in phases.|
|We work as needed and bill you after||Less than ideal for us.|
|Hosting and support||Billed monthly or yearly.|
We accept payments via bank transfer (BACS or SWIFT), including internationally. We can also receive credit and debit card payments using Stripe. For folks in countries where “wire transfers” can be costly and complicated, we will need to add approx 2.9% on top of the invoice total to cover Stripe’s processing fees.
