Cases

Roku is the #1 American TV streaming platform. This publicly traded company based in San Jose, California manufactures various digital media players for video streaming, has an advertising operation, and also licenses its hardware and software to other companies. The company was interested in building a new R&D office overseas and considered Ukraine as one of the locations. We started our cooperation with Roku at the beginning of autumn 2020 by providing consultations on the Ukrainian tech talent market, including such topics as the availability of specialists with the required tech stack and local tax and labor laws.

Task

  1. In March 2021, the company decided to move forward with opening an office in Kyiv, Ukraine and needed to fill several software engineering, DevOps, and managerial positions for different products and hiring managers. Roku had high qualification requirements which made the selection process extremely challenging.

Results

  • 7 job offers
  • 5 hires
  • 0 replacements
  • Average time-to-present (for tech roles): 36 days
  • Average time-to-hire: 38 days
  • Selection rate (for tech roles): 56%

Additional notes

  1. The most important vacancy for Roku and the most challenging one for us to close was the Site Director role. This professional needed to function as both the operational manager of the Kyiv site and the engineering team manager.
  2. The role required strong technical expertise, experience in managing successful product engineering teams, and independent CEO/COO experience, which is a rare combination in the service/consulting-oriented tech market of Ukraine.
  • Longlisted candidates: 123
  • Shortlisted candidates: 22
  • Time-to-present: 122 days
  • Time-to-hire: 73 days
  • Time-to-fill: 195 days
  1. The hired Site Director is managing the Ukrainian site and team effectively in this hard time, so we are extremely proud of the work we’ve done for Roku and are grateful to the company for continuing their operation in Ukraine

FAQ

Why hiring developers from Ukraine is a good idea?

The Ukrainian market of IT developers consists of more than 280 thousand specialists; more than half of whom are involved in custom engineering projects. This guarantees not only a good level of English but top-level global project experience. Those IT specialists, who work in software product companies, are involved not only in the development by specifications, but additionally, they conduct research on the problem and providing prototyping and analysis, writing specifications, etc. They are usually involved in every stage of SDLC to make a feature.

This and other advantages we are happy to share bring Ukraine to 11th place in HackerRank with an overall score of 88,7 points out of 100 among the top 50 countries with the best software developers in the world. In addition, special tax benefits for the tech industry and widely accepted B2B contracts make hiring Ukrainian developers highly attractive from a financial as well as a legal standpoint.

In what countries can we source developers?

Ukraine and Eastern Europe have always been the main markets for our agency. Globalization, growing acceptance of remote work, and high competition for talent have led us to expand throughout all of EMEA.

Since the start of the war in Ukraine, 50% of our projects are related to searches on the US talent market.

How many vacancies are we ready to take in task?

When we are starting to work with the company, we take no more than two vacancies. It is important for us to focus on the characteristics of each company, find it out from the inside and find exactly that kind of profile of the employee, who will be “native” to this company.

If in 2-4 weeks we manage to completely immerse ourselves in the company and the search for IT specialists ends with the filling of the vacancy, depending on the load, we are ready to take more work.

What is the guarantee that we will not hunt our own candidates to other companies?

For us, reputation is not an empty word, so we have always adhered to the basic principles of partnership: honesty, adequacy, long-term. Our IT recruiting agency plays the long game, and are not interested in one-time shadow earnings. About 70% of new customers come to us due to the recommendations of current customers. It is important for us to maintain a partnership for many years. We consider ourselves to be part of the client’s organization, and responsibly approach the provision of services.

Do we give any guarantee for hiring?

Yes, surely! We want our client to be satisfied, even if difficulties arise somewhere in the process. We provide one free replacement (in 100% of cases this is enough) of a candidate who has not proved himself properly for three months. In the case of some executive positions, the trial period and our warranty is extended up to six months.
