Contract engineer Contractors typically work through a contract firm that assigns them to companies for particular projects. The contract firms pay the contractors an hourly rate and then collect fees (generally 40 to 50 percent more than the contractor’s hourly rate) from the third party company. Perhaps one of the most attractive aspects of being a contract engineer is that the contract firm finds assignments for you. Sometimes, contract work opens doors that might otherwise not be available to you. In fact, contract positions sometimes lead to permanent full-time positions.
