Because screening is key

You’ve found the perfect resume. It has all the latest techie buzzwords on it. Now what? Our approach to screening top tech talent for your organization is both conservative and simple. We firmly believe that you cannot do the best job hiring for a technical role, unless you have genuine technical expertise with the technologies. Our technical program managers and engineers are all veteran domain experts within the fields they serve, and directly assist us with creating custom assessments.

Our ‘open loop’ screening process begins with us crafting a custom technical assessment from the job description you provide to us. For example, let’s say you want to hire a .NET programmer for your team. Our basic exams cover general CSE competencies (data structures & algorithms), build engineering, source control, debugging, testing, framework knowledge, as well as deeper specific skill sets which would be pertinent for that role.  Our custom assessments are built to weed out candidates which may have had incidental exposure to a technology, from those whom really know their stuff.

We then conduct a highly structured 2 hour evaluation with each of your top candidates using the custom assessments we have created. During our contact with each of your candidates, we can quickly determine if the technical keywords on the candidate’s resume are substantive or not. Finally, we provide to you a highly detailed written summary for each of your candidate’s so you can make a fully informed hiring decision.

Our ‘open-loop’ interview process is even more stringent than organizations whom are associated with higher degrees of engineering maturity such as Microsoft, Google, GE, or Apple- so you can be assured you are going to net top tech talent. Additionally, we maintain a network of technical professionals and industry thought-leaders whom provide supplemental candidate review and verification services, allowing us to conduct 100% informed candidate assessments.
