Worry no longer, we will take care of everything starting from understanding your needs to the whole employee lifecycle. Whether you need just extended team members or fully-staffed dedicated team, we’ll have you covered. Let’s have a look at the whole process overview.
At this stage, we ensure the client’s safety by signing NDA to protect any sensitive data and confidential company information.
After that, we schedule a call to find out more about our clients and their business. During it, we identify clients’ objectives and gather all the requirements regarding the desired candidate or a dedicated team. These include hard and soft skills, working experience and other important aspects crucial for the client.
Once the requirements are settled and we are acquainted with the needs of our client, we start the recruitment process. We conduct a thorough search following all the specified criteria to find a perfect match for you. Our extensive database has more than 200 000 top-notch candidates so that we can guarantee the speed of selecting proper employees for your project. Since the IT field is rapidly developing in Ukraine, the quality of work and experience in working with outsourced and remote projects give Ukrainians solid expertise and benefits in comparison with other job markets. We discuss every candidate with you and once the desired pool is filled, we can start the selection process.
During the selection, we conduct a series of interviews and test tasks to staff your team with qualified extended team members or enhance your project with a fully equipped dedicated team. When all the appropriate candidates are selected we start our first round of the interviewing process where technical tasks are done by a potential employee to check their professional level. During the assessment, we perform the code review to ensure the highest technical skills. During this stage, it is also possible to arrange the interview directly with the client if the need arises.
Soft Skills Interview
Once it is passed, the second round is scheduled to check the level of English. The desired level is Advanced - C1 to ensure proper communication, since it is of utmost importance in remote environments. Also, soft skills are assessed to find out whether a candidate is a team player and will for the dedicated team. Nowadays it is a tendency to сhoose the balance between hard and soft skills. Some candidates may be great at coding but poor in communications. In the majority cases, despite high professional level such people will not be good team players and may negatively affect the team morale and performance overall. While soft skills such as the ability to communicate, provide and accept feedback, relationships with colleagues will be a huge benefit for a remote team member.
Once all the previous stages are passed, all hard and soft skills match client’s expectations, our client approves a candidate, the last interview is conducted. Here the client and a candidate can discuss organizational moments and final agreements are reached. And it's time to welcome a new team member on board!
Also, at this stage, additional documents such as a contract regarding the cooperation of a client with our company along with the NDA between a developer and a client is signed. From the first working day, we help a developer to integrate into a new team environment. We all know that proper onboarding may influence the whole career path of employees, so we do everything possible that this period of adaptation is going smoothly and there is enough time to get comfortable in the new working place. This time is necessary for a person to acquire all the required accesses and tools which are crucial for everyday work. For a person to feel engaged, we arrange meetings with the team and ensure that the person has enough time to get acquainted with all the colleagues and rules of the project s/he will be working with.
We are interested in the employees' professional growth, that is why we arrange regular performance reviews for all the members of dedicated teams. Also, our client managers and HR department request regular feedback from clients on the team and individual members to eliminate the slightest nuances related to work processes and keep delivering the best experience to our customers in terms of outstaff personnel. We practice 360-degree reviews to receive unbiased opinions from all the colleagues a certain employee has an opportunity to work with and assess the level of cooperation among all the other important factors. These reviews are aimed at assessing the quality of work and development. They help team members to receive feedback on their work, know their strengths and areas for improvement to ensure the space for future growth. Another positive outcome we receive is the improvement of working relationships which leads to higher performance for all the team.
