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.
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.
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.
