A client has approached me with a rather unusual request.
Instead of hiring my services as a freelance web developer, they already got a small team working on their first product, they have decided to hire me as their project coordinator.
Since the client doesn't have the necessary knowledge to analyse the work being created by the small team in question, they have asked me to act as their project coordinator, meaning, my role would be to supervise this team's activity and make sure everything goes according to plan and that the team is creating a good product (in terms of code and style), and additionally, not being liable for any delay from the part of the small team.
I think this would be a good opportunity to learn a lot from a different perspective and ways to work and dealing with a team, and, since this would be my first time on this role, I would like to ask if any you fellow designers/developers would have any tips about it?
The point I am really struggling to get to a conclusion, is about the rate that should be charged in for performing such role.
Should it be less or more than my rate as a freelance web developer? — due to its responsibilities and managing more people than only myself?
Any advice would be highly appreciated.
