Companies don’t hire generic Java or .NET developers. They have their own technology platforms and they look for talent with a blend of skills that go up and down their stack. Unfortunately, technical evaluation tools just test for individual skills or present a generic coding challenge that aren’t based upon any particular position. Hiring companies, however, have painfully specific requirements based on the unique stacks that have evolved to support their businesses.
From the time we launched our initial Beta for TechScreen in June of 2015, we were confident that were introducing an unparalleled tool that empowers IT recruiters to perform a meaningful screen on the front end of the hiring process. We just had a pilot customer put up results that surpassed expectations. Our client is a 30 year-old software firm that offers mid- and back-office software systems for buy-side investment firms, which collectively have $25 Trillion under management.
