Hiring unicorns for the world's biggest ed-tech platform - Kahoot!
Positions: Frontend Developers, Backend Developers, Product Managers, UI and UX Designers and Head of Design and Product Manager
As most of our clients, Kahoot! has requirements and desires for new employees. The main challenge here was finding exceptional unicorn talent in a market starving of available skilled professionals. Candidates needed to have experience in both end-to-end product development and high-traffic/usage product as well as be able to manage the technical challenges that naturally arise in these fields. At the same time, the strong culture at Kahoot! required candidates invested in the cause and mission of improving education and learning.
The process started out with an extensive role-specific analysis, on which we built job ads and optimised the campaign. Part of this was close monitoring of job platform performance in respect to each role. Through identifying groups and forums we additionally ensured efficient job ad distribution across social media platforms.
The recruiters and co-founder Jørgen Iversen are highly skilled professionals with a focus on delivering qualified candidates and a good candidate experience. I appreciate the data-driven approach and the customer-oriented attitude First Engineers has in their recruitment process and these are important skills to bring in a very competitive market where every company is looking for the same kind of profiles. They always work hard to deliver good results. I’d highly recommend First Engineers to other companies.
