Handpicking best profiles
Profiles that make you go ‘that’s the one’, before we test if they really really are. We get it right from the word go with a meticulous review process, picking the best developers for you.
Testing culture fitness
That’s a thing. It means we test your developer on the basis of communication skills, thought process and the right approach towards people and problem-solving. Bringing you candidates with the right aptitude and attitude towards work.
Live code crunching
Getting down to business, we conduct a live coding assessment on our in-house platform and test them on algorithms, data structures stack-related concepts. The final developers are picked by our engineers and subject matter experts, not relying on automated selection.
