We knew there had to be a better way.
Armed with a dream, a background in web development and a genuine desire to offer a human-centric service, we formed Source Code in 2014 and have been learning, refining and evolving ever since.
Our desire to approach recruitment as a logic-challenge led to our first in-house hire being a Technical Architect, who remains part of our team to this very day. His role is to create, administer and review our growing selection of in-house, custom programming assessments (with both verbal and written options), now used by over 80% of our client-base, to find the right engineer for their needs (get in touch if you’d like to see some examples of our assessments).
As above, when a ‘document-style’ test isn’t quite the right fit, we adapt and approach our process with a conversational technique – establishing the level of complexity within an engineer’s career history and ensuring that any new potential role is a quality fit for both the candidate and the business. This can range from discussing object-oriented topics such as polymorphism, to other concepts such as destructuring, resolvers and immutability being just a few examples.
All of this is in addition to our strict ‘zero-pressure’ policy.
We continue to be baffled by the industry practice of hounding people until they attend interviews, accept jobs they don’t want or pestering companies incessantly in the hope that something might stick. It’s not for us.
Instead, we focus on providing one simple thing above all others – relevant options – supported by unbiased advice. It genuinely is as simple as that.
No clutter. No sales pitch. Just a reliable and measurably specialist service that puts your needs, desires and concerns above the desire to make money.
We appreciate that’s a lot to take at face value, but we’d like to think that our testimonials help support the statements above.
So, if this all sounds like the type of service you’d like to partner with, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We can’t wait to work with you.
The team at Source Code.
