Talent Pool for Staff Augmentation
New talent applies to join our platform everyday. As a result, we currently have over 650 developers in the pool, from 24 African countries. To be able to join our pool, the candidates obviously need to pass technical skills tests. But also a number of soft skills tests like communication and situational awareness.
We ask you to provide us with the profile you are looking for. After that, we start a matching process among the developers in our pool. It usually takes us up to 4 days to present you a shortlist of 3 candidate profiles, including CV and test scores. Further, when we don’t have available candidates in our pool, we do an out-of-platform search. This generally takes about 14 days. In addition, based on your preferences we organize interviews. And when desired we do additional tests.
The moment you have chosen a candidate we will send you a formal proposal. We have flexible arrangements ranging from part-time and temporary 4 hour contracts to full-time open ended contracts. Subsequently, the first month you are assigned a talent manager who stays on top of things. For instance by organizing a joint kick off meeting, and by consulting both you and the developer. And generally ensuring that things take off smoothly.
Once the collaboration has taken off, the talent manager checks in regularly with both you and the developer. Either by means of a short survey or by calling/mailing. So if an issue arises, the talent manager is there to troubleshoot and ensure that continuity of your assignment is guaranteed.
