Like Amazon’s ecommerce service, Lightning offers the best quality service at lowest price due to its sharper focus on Tech roles and massive cost advantage. As an example, Lightning has very low sourcing cost since it has access to Cutshort’s userbase of 20,00,000+ candidates who are already skill-mapped and AI analysed.
Unlike agencies, we aim for high relevance and joining ratio. To do this, our team spends considerable time and effort to understand your roles and find the best fitting candidates. The nominal monthly retainer helps us partly cover some of our fixed costs. For this retainer, you also get powerful Cutshort boosters such as Employer Branding & Candidate Feedback Report which are critical for any company to hire great tech talent today.
Conventional agencies search largely on keywords. Quality and relevance is judged by recruiters who themselves are not engineers. Lightning uses Large Language Models used by the likes of ChatGPT to search candidates on the higher level requirement mentioned by the hiring manager. For e.g. “a frontend developer with experience on performance optimisation”. It also uses test scores of the candidates in our specially created assessment tests on 30+ languages and frameworks. As a result, we have seen many companies selecting up to 80% to 100% of the candidates we share for their interview rounds.
