Helping you find the brightest talent

Germanys largest provider of IT & IOT monitoring technology was looking to migrate their legacy code from a C++ / Delphi tech stack to a Rust focused stack as they looked to make their products work faster and efficiently.

The Hiring Manager wanted to add 2 Senior Software Engineers with experience in code migrations, Rust and Delphi.

Business Challenges

Finding someone with the relevant Delphi experience provided the biggest challenge. A language that hasn’t been in regular use since the early 2000’s meant finding candidates with experience particularly challenging.

Our Approach & Solutions

  • Maintained regular contact with Engineering Directors, internal talent team and maintained expectations throughout the process

  • Completed a full market search across Germany and proactively headhunted candidates with Rust experience from both commercial and personal projects

  • Attending online Rust meetups to meet with passive candidates, build rapport and present the role to them

  • Collated a longlist of suitable candidates and promptly interviewed them to get a handle on their technical suitability as well as cultural fit within the new team

  • Presented 8 strong candidates to the hiring managers and internal team

  • Provided feedback and market updates throughout the process. Supported the internal team during offer management to ensure both client and candidates were happy with the resulting offer

Our Results

We were able to provide 2 experienced candidates with experience in both Rust and Delphi to join the team within 7 weeks of initial meeting.
