Finding a Unicorn
Client Objective: Urgently fill a critical, but hard-to-find, role
One Toronto’s fastest growing Media companies contacted xiBOSS to find them a J2EE SOFTWARE DEVELOPER with mobile device technologies (Android, SQLite, Core Data, Cocoa API, HLS) experience and NoSQL Databases such as MongoDB or Cassandra experience. It was a hard to find combination. The call came directly from the Director and he asked us to find the right candidate ASAP. He told us that he had received profiles from other agencies but was really disappointed with the quality of the candidates.
Solution: Found and engaged the perfect candidate
xiBOSS understood the urgency of the situation, quickly assessed the client’s specific requirements and started the recruiting process. We needed to make sure that the resource was a 100% match as the client was frustrated enough after interviewing so many candidates.
After interviewing several candidates, using the client’s own interview template sheet, we shortlisted only one person who was a perfect fit for the role. The client interviewed the candidate and immediately made the decision to hire him. We closed this difficult requirement in less than one week.
Result, Benefit: Client was finally able to fill this urgently required roleWe followed up with the client after a couple of months, and they were still extremely happy with their employee’s performance. After lengthy frustrations, they were finally able to get some critical work done by this new developer.
