An internet service provider start-up were looking to develop a product to provide a better service than the traditional providers across the UK and Europe.

They use a Modern Rust tech stack and were looking to add an engineer with Rust experience to join as their first hire under a new head of software development.

Business Challenges

The main challenge presented was finding an experienced developer within a small talent pool of Rust developers across the UK who was looking to join such an early stage start-up project.

Our Approach & Solutions

  • We kept in constant contact with Brillband’s CEO and Head of Software throughout the process. Not only to get full understanding of the technical requirements for this role but to also delve deeper into the working culture they wanted to foster within the business

  • We conducted a full search of the UK Rust market. Presenting the role to both active and passively searching candidates with both commercial and personal experience with Rust

  • We found that due to some layoffs following the crypto market crash that there were a good number of candidates actively looking for new opportunities with relevant experience. We spoke to every candidate interested to assess their fit for this role

  • After interviewing and assessing all of these candidates from a technical and cultural standpoint we presented Brillband’s Head of Software & CEO with 4 candidates who had strong Rust experience and were excited by the project at hand

  • We liaised with the head of software and the CEO to organise interviews. Providing both candidate and client feedback afterwards and helping

Our Results

We were able to find Brillband a candidate that was immediately available, an excellent culture fit that had the relevant experience and able to grow with the company within 3 weeks of the initial meeting.
