Betsys is the largest supplier of sports betting solutions in Central and Eastern Europe. They provide a comprehensive range of products and services covering the entire spectrum of betting: prematch, live sports betting, popular e-sport matches, virtual sports etc.
At the beginning of 2023, we undertook a crucial role in facilitating the recruitment process for Betsy's company, aimed at sourcing exceptional programmers to strengthen their mobile and core programming teams.
The target roles encompassed iOS and Android Senior Developers, as well as a PHP Senior Developer proficient in Golang.
The challenge lay in promptly attracting the best-suited candidates, as the vacant positions were not only costly but also impeding company operations. Following several discussions with the HR Manager, we realized that these positions had remained unfilled for an extended period, despite attempts from other recruitment agencies. Either no applications were forwarded, or the proposed candidates failed to meet the necessary criteria.
Lidia, our dedicated recruitment consultant pledged her commitment to fulfilling all vacancies. She stepped in with a strategic and systematic approach. She began by understanding the minutiae of the job requirements, enabling her to formulate a detailed recruitment strategy. This strategy included:
- setting up steps in the recruitment project,
- setting up the hiring funnel,
- choosing the best tools/online spaces for sourcing and attracting candidates,
- choosing the right software to manage and coordinate the meetings with candidates and keeping all information about applicants like screening notes/ feedback etc.
Result of cooperation
Our goal was to extend offers to selected candidates within four weeks from the start of sourcing.
Leveraging our extensive talent network, Lidia initiated the sourcing and screening processes. Following three weeks of rigorous meetings—five to six per day—she introduced 10 qualified candidates to the process. Four of them received job offers, and three were successfully hired.
These hires resulted exclusively from our network and established connections with IT professionals. LinkedIn and TeamTailor (ATS), along with Calendly, have been used in this recruitment process.
Lidia’s exceptional efforts resulted in a fantastic candidate experience. The applicants expressed their interest in considering future roles with the client, expressing their eagerness to collaborate with us for any upcoming recruitment needs.
In this place, we would also like to share our experience working with a remarkable individual on the client’s side. Ms. Adrianna Kaczor, the HR Manager, played a pivotal role in our cooperation. She was engaged in the entire hiring process, making it smooth and swift. She went above and beyond to ensure the best candidate experience across the client’s side of the process. We couldn’t have asked for a better HR partner!
I had the pleasure of working with Simply Talented, with Ms Karolina and Ms Lidia in the hiring process for the positions of Android, iOS and PHP+GO Developer. Simply Talented was the first agency that met our expectations 100% and filled key roles for us at that point. The cooperation with both ladies was at a very high level. Communication with Ms Lidia, who I had the opportunity to work with on a daily basis, was a pleasure - her professionalism and commitment resulted in an extremely fast closure of the commissioned processes. I recommend Simply Talented to anyone facing the difficult choice of an effective recruitment agency for their company.
