Philosophy behind Antares Tech's team building
The team has its priority straight when it comes to hiring; Bring smart, but most importantly, culturally fit people into the team.
Their process is designed to make sure that they hire both culturally and technically fit candidates. The team looks for folks with the right attitude and fundamentals, willing to train them further on the programming side. They believe in organic growth rather than recruiting new members for lead positions.
Since they understand their requirements best, they remain closely involved in the process from the very sourcing of the candidates.
Hiring process at Antares Tech
Antares Tech closely reviews the applications and digs deeper into the applicants' skills, previous companies and managers, qualifications of past colleagues and so on. They then have an introduction call, 2 technical rounds, and close the role after evaluation with the technical panel.
Challenges before using Cutshort
- Difficulty in finding quality candidates with clear fundamentals.
- Their past sources like Indeed/Glassdoor/LinkedIn/agencies couldn't connect them with culturally fit candidates.
