And… drumroll. At Web Summit 2016 the web platform we will be a curated marketplace to remove the hassle and delay from the process of hiring remote software. The great news is that though we will be officially presenting at ALPHA Startup exhibition this week – the site will go live soon thereafter! But we can’t wait for this big day so have decided with you screenshots to give you a sneak peek.
Our mission is to reshape thinking about the nearshore staff – gravitating away from focussing on software functionality to the engagement of a team with the right skill set for delivering your project. Essentially we are applying a simple online booking paradigm the process of assembling a remote tech team. Imagine the process you through on Booking.com or Airbnb to book a property – we are basically doing something very similar, but for acquiring remote engineers’ and designers’ services. We are establishing a marketplace for hiring developers directly from within their respective software firms.
To use YouTeam platform you will need to enter onto the platform, type in the required technology, framework or job position into the search bar and a list of available specialists pops up.
You can narrow the search down based on certain parameters (like seniority level, additional tech requirements or availability); sift through suggested profiles and move the ones you like the shortlist. You can then immediately request their detailed CVs and have an interview with each candidate scheduled for the same day (or anytime you like, really). There is also an option to immediately give a test task to each candidate and, once completed, you will able to bring the specialist you liked the most onto the project right away or whenever you want them to start.
ShortCode has bad parameters
What’s important is that such framework instantly equips you with all the necessary information to make a decision on whether you are interested in a particular specialist. If you are, then you decide whether it is worth further investing your time in following up – you have all the tools to do it live or on demand. Think again about how much time it takes from the start of your search to the point when the specialist is ready to commence work. That’s the process we are trying to disrupt.
We invite you to visit our stand (A-508, Pav. 1 on Thursday, Nov. 10) at Startup ALPHA 2016 and are all ears on any feedback or value you might be able to add to our new venture. Of course, we’d be more than happy to reciprocate whatever way we can! E.g. 10/40 hours of software development for free.
You can contact us via Web Summit app (search ‘YouTeam’). There are five of us here in Lisbon 😉
Look forward to meeting you!
