DevSkiller Platform Helps in Recruitment of Programmers in US, UK and Scandinavia

Over 800,000 people in 180 countries have already used the Devskiller tools for recruitment of programmers. It was appreciated by investment funds. They have invested almost $4M in Polish company over the last few years.

Recruitment hundreds of programmers is impossible without at least partial automation of this process using online platforms. One of them is DevSkiller. First of all it offers solutions that map staff skills and enables the implementation of an operating model based on skills. It outlines development paths for their employees within the organization as well.

DevSkiller creates universal tasks that can be tailored to the needs of any company. By asking a candidate to correct a written application riddled with errors, the platform can assess how it would perform within two minutes. There are over 2,000 similar tasks on the platform, but the client can also add his own tasks. As a result, recruiting one candidate can be completed within one week, which saves time.

Devskiller Talent Boost

However, the platform does not want to be only a recruitment of programmers tool. It also wants to be for knowledge management, and to do this, you need to be able to evaluate it. The DevSkiller Talent Boost tool comes to the rescue and maps individual team members’ skills. The company can check what employees know and what skills they already have. Thanks to such solutions, clients can create career paths for their employees or delegate them to new tasks.

Success with Orange Polska

One of its latest users is Orange Polska, the largest telecommunications operator in Poland. Thanks to it, over 3,000 employees have a defined competence profile and can map their skills. By the end of the year, they will all be there. The average time they can complete a self-assessment is approximately 21 minutes. It allows them to learn about development opportunities within the company. It also provides top managers with invaluable information for planning business development. DevSkiller also benefits from this, whose revenues in 2022 exceeded 2.5 million dollars and are expected to exceed 5 million this year. The company does not disclose profits, but it is common knowledge that the margin exceeds 90% in this market sector.

Company’s history

The startup’s history dates back to 2012, when Jakub Kubryński, its founder and president, was to employ programmers for the PayU online payment operator belonging to the Allegro Group, where he worked. There were several hundred reports a week, but verifying them was very time-consuming. There were already platforms for this type of recruitment, but they tested academic knowledge rather than how to use it to solve business problems. It was then that he came up with the idea to set up a consulting company with his two colleagues, Marek Kałużny and Mariusz Smykuła. They would create a platform better suited to business needs, however, required him to resign from his current job.

The basic version of the product was created in 18 months. They developed it in the BusinessLink offices, where they even won one of the startup competitions. As a reward, they flew to an acceleration program in San Francisco. They learned how to build a product and a company under the supervision of mentors from large technology companies. When they returned, they decided to cooperate with a marketing agency. It helped them build a brand by filling the blog with content. Then their founders, Tomasz Winter and Katarzyna Kandefer, joined DevSkiller as subsequent co-founders.

The official launch of DevSkiller

It took place in January 2016. Because the first client was an American company, it was possible to achieve $0.25M in revenuein 2016. At the end of 2017, the company obtained 0.5 million from a business angel, thanks to which DevSkiller employed more people. It allowed the company to grow faster; a year later, its revenues doubled. In 2019, the team entered the Ellis Accelerator program in New York, which gave them a lot. Then, they started cooperation with the SpeedUp Energy Innovation fund, already having hundreds of foreign customers. Most of all from the USA, Great Britain, and Scandinavia, who currently bring 90% of the total revenues.
