Requirements

In the era of transparency and cybersafety, crypto solutions are on everybody’s lips. Some companies have no idea about them, others actively use this approach in business and government. And for the latter the problem is the same – all the novelties lack experts.

Regardless of all abovementioned problem, we got the task to hire Elixir and Rust developers with 4+ years of experience from a client. This is an ambitious German startup that offers crypto solutions for business.

Business Challenge

They didn’t find enough local Elixir developers in Germany, so they decided to try out Ukrainian job market. The startup knows how to hire a development team at a distance so they were looking for a vendor that would meet the next criteria:

1) following legal procedures (signing NDA and Agreement);
2) IT recruiters with proven experience;
3) ability to participate in interviews or interview candidates themselves;
4) transparent pricing policy with no secret salaries or other hidden payments.

Our Solution

Qubit Labs fits under their standards perfectly well, so we signed the documents, and our recruiters got detailed job descriptions to find an Elixir development team. We also sent our clients approximate salaries and total prices for the developers so that they could estimate their budget for setting up a remote team.

During the pre-screening stage, we met a few challenges. For instance, such technologies as Elixir are rare and hard to find. In most cases, there are no jobless Elixir developers or those who are just sitting on the bench in outsourcing companies. Those who are available on the job market are mainly entry-level programmers.

Why so? Although Rust becomes the most loved programming language for three years in a row according to StackOverflow, it is difficult to learn. As well as Elixir, a programming language that appeared seven years ago with the last stable release in 2018. It is “too modern” to have many experts.

Results

Our recruiters took up the challenge and started the search. As a result, they found 20 Rust developers and showed four CVs to the client. They selected three candidates for interview. But, as we remember, one of the client’s demands was to interview programmers on their own. So, the CEO came to our Kyiv office to meet the candidates in person.

We encourage clients to visit our office as it gives them better idea how remote development teams works and boost their confidence in fair and honest cooperation. We have a special guest space where our clients can work and conduct interviews.

In this case, the interview was half-real-time and half-online as CEO was sitting in our office while CTO from Germany asked his questions in Skype. They interviewed three programmers and made a job offer to one of them.

If we take statistics for Elixir developers, it is the following: 55 Elixir devs were contacted and the client got two pre-screened CVs. They interviewed one developer, and the vacancy was closed right after it.

Besides closing vacancies and getting an Elixir development team, our client was impressed by smooth communication and minimal bureaucreacy. Due to the visit, our client saw that we are opened for discussion. We established informal and quick communication both with a CEO who went to our office and a CTO in Germany. They pointed that it was easy to talk to the top management of Qubit Labs and IT recruiters – no formal emails, no delays in responses, just quick and informative notes in messengers. And they introduced us to our next client 😉
