As QoQa experienced remarkable business success, their need to hire efficiently increased significantly. With their expanded range of offerings, the company required the right tech talents to join their team.
To fulfill this requirement, Jenifer Tur, the Talent Consultant at QoQa, was responsible for screening and identifying qualified candidates who meet her standards. Once shortlisted, these individuals are then referred to the Senior Leadership for further evaluation.
Jenifer's primary focus is on sourcing top-notch Swiss developers who possess the intrinsic motivation and relevant prior experience.
However, this is not an unusual requirement, as most organizations seek these qualifications in their tech team members.
Speed. Quality. Guidance.
Jenifer had a conversation with her TieTalent Client Executive, Sofia, in November 2021. She expressed her interest in finding tech talent quickly and efficiently with a focus on quality, and wanted guidance on tech hiring fundamentals and the Swiss tech market.
Sofia discussed Jenifer's requirements with Lisa, a Talent Agent who evaluates candidates on TieTalent, to gain a better understanding of QoQa's needs. They worked together to help Jenifer use TieTalent to search, evaluate, and connect with potential tech talent.
With TieTalent's Intelligent Search, Jenifer could easily find tech professionals based on their skills, experiences, and expectations. Lisa would also notify Jenifer of any strong potential hires that fit QoQa's specifications.
Hiring Made Simple
Simplifying the hiring process was made possible with TieTalent for Jenifer and QoQa. Between November 2021 and February, they hired three new tech team members during the Christmas and New Year periods.
With the help of Sofia and Lisa, Jenifer was able to find two backend developers and one product owner. Though it may seem like a small number, Jenifer and QoQa value efficient and intelligent hiring, prioritizing quality over quantity.
Above all, they aim to streamline the hiring process to recruit talented individuals who can contribute to delivering the best special offers in Switzerland.
The Future of QoQa
QoQa has recently moved to Lausanne's “QG” in April 2022, signaling their readiness to continue expanding their offerings and exploring new verticals. As the e-commerce industry in Switzerland is revolutionized by their continued growth, exciting opportunities arise to join their dynamic team.
QoQa highly values its team members and promotes a workplace that emphasizes value-driven benefits, such as:
- Hybrid work environment
