An overview of Biofourmis' hiring context in India
Biofourmis wanted to scale their engineering team in India fast but what made them different was the higher cultural fitment bar they set for themselves. One of the things this meant was they really wanted their team members to be innovative, learning driven and self motivated.
This was one of the reasons why Biofourmis team wanted to spot talent on their own as opposed to outsourcing a major part of their recruitment to the agencies. They were looking for a solution that could help them do this, in a scalable and efficient way.
Hiring process at Biofourmis
The team reviews the resumes closely and upon shortlisting, sends a role specific assessment test configured on their HackerEarth tool. If a candidates does satisfactorily well, the rest of the interviews follow fast.
Challenges before using CutShort
  1. Sourcing high quality talent pool that is learning driven and self motivated.
  2. A small recruiting team with just one recruiter and one engineering leader.
  3. Bottlenecks in the areas of shortlisting candidates, interview scheduling, assessment test operations.
How Biofourmis used CutShort to close 30+ position in just 2 months

  • It gave access to a high quality, startup friendly talent from product companies.
  • It made it easy to discover competent and relevant talent.

Weekend recruitment drives powered by CutShort
After closing first 10+ roles across 5 different roles in their first month of usage, Biofourmis team wanted to double down on CutShort. We suggested our specialized solution of weekend recruitment drives where our team would take care of the building the entire pipeline of highly relevant and pre-assessed candidates for multiple roles and their team could plan to interview them over one weekend.
The weekend drives turned out to be a big success with more than 12 roles closed out of the pipeline of 30 candidates in just 2 weeks. CutShort’s talent experts invited, screened, assessed and engaged the candidates for the drives using AI powered workflows and a careful human touch, whenever needed. Biofourmis team then meticulously planned the virtual interview rooms and designed the entire candidate experience to create a strong brand impression on their minds.
