Online Business Systems is a technology consulting company based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. They’ve hired 6 Senior Developer from VanHack and talk about their experience in the video below.
In Kevin’s words:
I’m Kevin Paquin. I’m the director of technology consulting services at Online Business Systems. We’re located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. We’ve had a lot of great success hiring candidates in Winnipeg and throughout Canada, but ultimately, when you’re trying to do a lot of hiring, and you kind of continue, and continue to grow, there are times when the talent pool dries up a little bit.
So we made the decision to kind of start looking abroad a little bit. And that’s when we came across VanHack. When you’re looking for candidates abroad, it’s really, really difficult to make sure you have that kind of culture fit. You have the fit in terms of communication, EQ, all of those things you kind of need to make sure are there. We’re looking for people to come, and to stay, and continue to work with us.
Taking those resumes down and being able to find candidates that were already a great fit for us, I mean, I don’t think there would be any way that you could go internationally and try and figure that out on your own. It’s just the volume just isn’t there. And so the pre-screening that that VanHack is doing kind of ahead of that time must just be intense. So that was very much appreciated. I definitely recommend working with VanHack in the future, and I think we’ll be doing the same.
