There are several thousand engineers in Warsaw who can program on the Android platform, but because the time to find a new employee was so short, we had to skillfully narrow down the results.
First, we reached into our internal base - as we regularly search for such profiles also for other companies, we have very up-to-date information on the expectations of candidates and their situation. Several candidates during recent conversations with our consultants indicated that they are interested in IoT-related projects. If the candidates were on the budget, had short notice periods or their dismissal was very likely, we contacted them immediately.
As the IT recruitment agency and outsourcing company, we were also looking for candidates in themed groups, on discussion forums or on various Internet platforms. There, on the other hand, we focused primarily on looking for people who are freelancers, work on contracts, have recently joined companies and are on trial periods or have a short notice.
Since the project was attractive, two people came to us through word-of-mouth, i.e. “a friend told me about your offer”.
