A Look Inside Ideaware’s Recruitment Process

Recruiting software development talent is a particularly challenging art, but done in the right way, it becomes very rewarding.

We understand that finding the right talent for your project is time-consuming and demanding. At Ideaware we make sure you don’t have to worry about that. Hiring an outsource/nearshore software team is meant to be easy and headache-free.


“In technology, it’s about the people. Getting the best people, retaining them, nurturing a creative environment, and helping to find a way to innovate.”  -Marissa Mayer

From profiling to hiring

We want to make your vision a reality. To make this happen, we’ve crafted a repeatable process, with an extraordinary technical team to find the talent to meet your needs for “skill and scale.”

Stage 1: Preparation

Let’s get started!

Whether you are scaling your team or hiring a dedicated team, the first step is to identify the requirements of the position you need for your project. After the vacancy request is made, our Human Resources team will begin to work its magic. 

We use a collaborative recruiting method, which means that with our tech leads, we create the right job profile of required competencies and skills based on your needs. From this moment, we use our recruitment techniques to spread the message and the head-hunting starts.

Stage 2: Prescreening

This phase consists of selecting, organizing, and identifying cream-of-the-crop candidates by reviewing the applications. When we have selected the profiles that meet the requirements, the screening process starts with a call to each applicant. 

Here comes the fun….

Stage 3: Technical Interview

After the screening process is done, our HR team and tech leads schedule an interview with the very best candidates. We conduct a series of questions, challenges and evaluate their creativity, ability to problem solve, and culture compatibility. In the end, our tech leads give us the evaluation form with a score and feedback.

Stage 4: Job simulation exercises and final interview

Here is when you come to the mix! We share with you between 2-4 top-talent candidates with their job profiles and technical results. You review and select the ones you believe are the best fit for your project, and we will schedule your interview with them.

During this final interview, we conduct a work simulation challenge. This will help us to check the candidate’s expertise, qualifications, and understand how they will react in a future work situation. 

Stage 5: Offer and hiring

After you select your A+ candidate and give us the green light, we make an offer and our HR department starts with the hiring process. We take care of the rest.

You are all set!

Nothing but benefits…

These are just a few reasons why you should hand-off this process to us:

  • You don’t have to worry about contracts anymore.
  • You will have more time to focus on your project while we focus on finding the right talent.
  • Our experts will put together a team that goes with the personality of your project, culture, and fit your expectations.
  • The days when you had to spend endless hours screening candidates are over. Now you can spend this worry-free time centering your attention on your goals.
  • You will just interview and screen candidates that are already aligned with your requirements.

“Hiring talent is a multi-faceted skill that lies at the crossroads of social networking, technical acumen, process management, and intuition.”  -Hyam Singer

Remember that hiring is a journey and we are here to help you along the way to build the right dedicated or extended development team exactly to your needs.
