The biggest challenge was the organization’s ambitious goal – to hire 50 Java Developers in a few months.
Another challenge was that the company was open only to highly experienced candidates at the Senior level who had to communicate freely in English (due to international projects).
In addition, people with this profile are usually not very mobile (they have comparable projects on local markets), therefore mass relocations from other Polish cities were not an option.
The only possible form of cooperation with Sizmek was the Employment Contract. A significant percentage of experienced Java Developers are employed on B2B. The amounts they earn are therefore usually higher than the amounts they can get on the Employment Contract (taking into account the compared employer’s cost).
The recruitment process consisted of three stages, one of them was the technical test. For profiles that everyone has been looking for and needed (such as Java Developer), time can be one of the most important criteria for success or failure. If the recruitment process, e.g. due to the multitude of stages, lasts too long, then there is a high possibility that the candidate will in the meantime decide on a different offer.
