At Scalo, we love challenges and making the impossible possible. When we got word of the bank’s challenge, we didn’t waste time pondering, we accepted it.
The first thing we did was launching multiple recruitment processes in different IT hubs. It resulted in building a preselected list of highly qualified software engineers in just a few days.
The next phase embraced verification of competences of all the candidates in a flash in order to select the right candidates. We chose to run assessment centre workshops, the recruitment method typically used to select the best candidates for top management positions.
The software developers found it a bit odd, but agreed anyway to join the recruitment workshop. We gathered them all one day in one place to monitor how they would manage a certain task and solve hypothetical problems in software projects. This simple idea allowed us not only to verify their technical knowledge, but also their soft and social skills.
Before month’s end, we delivered to our clients a list of verified candidates list.
