If it didn't require me moving, I would consider it.

I voted yes but it depends. If this is an all inclusive rate on corp to corp then it is marginal, depending on the expenses in the area. If it is W2 plus expenses it is a good rate. Not really enough information to answer the question.

For a 6 month engagement I think that's too low, for 24-36 months I think it's OK.

Here is my 2c this:

Checkpoint Professional Services charges $250/hour and their knowledge is about the same as my seven years old daughter. Maybe I am cynical but I've not met a competent Checkpoint Professional Service person yet and I've been doing this for ten years now.

Therefore, $75/hour is still low for a 2 year project. I would charge at least $150/hour for a 24 month project.
