Hire with confidence

Our recruiting process starts with a comprehensive understanding of your company's mission, values, product, goals, and culture.

We then use a combination of industry-specific recruiting techniques and our years of experience to identify, screen, and build your talent pipeline:

First step: Job description filter

The information you provide as a job description (JD) becomes the search's first filter and starting point. No matter the channel we source, we filter out unqualified candidates that don't match your criteria. We can guide your company on developing an effective JD during our kick-off call. From experience, around 5% of the talent passes the first filter.

Then, our technical recruiters review candidates' resumes and evaluate each qualification, skill, and experience. Our thorough resume review comes from learning to rely on something other than the LinkedIn profile. A CV contains details that substantiate someone's level of expertise.

Second step: In-depth Technical Interview

We start our most complex filter with in-depth technical interviews we also use to vet English, problem-solving, and proactivity skills. Critical soft skills for optimal remote work.

Our technical interview evaluates if a recent candidate's experience includes vital technologies and frameworks used at your company. Also, we assess project complexity, the depth of expertise in each technology, and every tool a candidate used.

We take the most out of this interview to pitch the developer your company and evaluate product understanding and motivation to work with you beyond salary expectations.


The technical interviews we conduct are customized based on your company's requirements.

Third step: Coding test

If this is the case, some companies may include a technical test we introduce as a third filter. It could be a specific technology assessment or a take-home to inspect code quality and clean code practices.

Fourth step: Candidate presentation

Finally, we present developers who have passed all the filters, including our recruiters' evaluation, an updated CV version, and the technical results, if necessary.

What happens if candidates don't hit the mark?

We understand the importance of timely and efficient hiring, so we work closely with your hiring managers to ensure the filters are correctly set.

Sometimes, a company may have missed a skill that is very crucial for the position. When that happens, we add that filter to the candidate vetting process and present only those that match. We also provide ongoing support to ensure a successful onboarding process for your new hires.
