While in the past you’d need to sift through 20 resumes and schedule 10 phone interviews to find a developer who still might not deliver, Their internal team of engineers will hand-pick vetted developers for you to interview based on your needs.
Their clients, on average, conduct just 1.7 interviews for each hire made. By being introduced to just a few custom-selected developers (like the one on the right), their personalized process will save you time and money.
