Finding the right skill set for software engineering roles is no mean feat. This is why at Dzemo, only engineers hire other engineers. A good engineer can read through another engineer’s CV much faster and understand what skill set type the words on paper represent.
Additionally when this recruiter/engineer does the initial interview with a potential candidate, he/she can quickly judge whether it is a match or not, speeding up the selection process.
An engineer is also able to look beyond the CV or portfolio and test for specific skills and industry best practices.
How it all began...
The story of engineers hiring other engineers begins with our founder. He worked as a software engineer and employee from 2005 to 2011.
He first came across recruiting in 2011, after he started working as a freelance engineer for companies of all sizes from large corporations to startups. For some startups he would hire a whole team and build software for them. Recruiting at this stage took up about 10% of his monthly working hours.
Start Up Company
In 2014 he worked full time as a freelance consultant engineer at one of the Rocket Internet companies, where he was partly responsible for scaling a team of engineers from 30 to 70 within a span of 16 months.
He began to see, first-hand, how difficult it was for HR to find the right engineers at the sourcing stage of the recruitment and present them to the team leads of the various projects for hire. The HR department was mostly made of Psychology and Business graduates.
Our founder decided to get more involved in the sourcing process of recruitment because an engineer can more easily understand the technologies and hard skills being sought after and spot the talent needed for the team faster.
Our unique process includes Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation to find and engage candidates faster than usual.
