If you need help solving a problem, Phacility offers broad-spectrum consulting services. The service we provide works like this:
- We'll work on whatever you want, within moral and legal limits.
- We'll charge you **$1,500/hour** for the time we spend working on it.
- If you're interested in hiring us for consulting work, send us an email: **[[ mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org | email@example.com ]]**
We are not primarily a consulting company, and this service is aimed at unusual cases where our expertise is especially valuable or the situation is particularly urgent.
You might use this service to do these kinds of things:
- **Custom Development:** We can help you with writing a custom extension, third-party application, or with modifying Phabricator (for upstream development, see [[ Prioritization ]]).
- **Disaster Recovery:** If you've run into a problem like a hardware failure or data corruption, we can help you recover and get back online quickly.
- **Imports or Exports:** If you need to export or import data to or from custom systems, we can make sure the process goes smoothly.
- **Unreproducible/Environmental Problems:** At our consulting rate, we're happy to try to reproduce bizarre environmental problems for as long as you remain solvent.
- **Wisdom and Judgement:** We are experienced software professionals and can offer advice on building an engineering organization or solving difficult technical problems, whether they have anything to do with Phabricator or not.
- **Interim Executive:** If your company needs an interim executive after an unexpected change in leadership, we're excellent candidates and competitively priced at this rate.
- **Move Furniture:** We aren't necessarily very good at this, but are happy to help you move furniture at our consulting rate.
- **Write a Biography:** Does Phabricator's marketing copy resonate in the chambers of your soul as the perfect voice for your memoir? We can help build your legacy.
These services are **not available** as consulting services:
- **Control over the Phabricator Upstream:** See [[ prioritization | Prioritization ]] for discussion of how to get things built in the upstream.
- **Assassinations:** We will only perform legal services, and are not available to assassinate your rivals.
Other Ways to Solve Problems
Many problems can be solved much more cheaply in other ways:
- We offer a substantial level of [[ https://secure.phabricator.com/book/phabcontrib/article/bug_reports/ | free support ]].
- You can control our roadmap at a much lower rate, see [[ prioritization | Prioritization ]].
- We offer SAAS hosting at a much lower rate with a greater range of bundled support, see the [[ https://phacility.com | Phacility Corporate Site]].
- Phabricator is open source; all problems can ultimately be solved without our help by digging into the code.
