Pearl

Delivering access to an unbeatable network of AWS talent.

The challenge

Pearl is a software solutions company that’s using AI technology to power the future of dental care. As a rapidly growing startup, Pearl needed experienced cloud candidates who could hit the ground running.

Pearl was struggling to find candidates with the aptitude and experience they needed with their internal recruitment efforts. The candidates that they’d managed to source so far simply didn’t have the skillsets or experience they were looking for, and many presented logistical obstacles like requiring sponsorship.

The solution

Realizing they needed support from industry experts to source the high-caliber talent they were searching for, Pearl reached out to Jefferson Frank for help.

Though candidates with substantial experience using the tools and services that Pearl employ were rare, the Jefferson Frank team was able to use their extensive technical expertise, and in-depth knowledge of the local candidate market to source a robust shortlist of qualified professionals.

Few of Pearl’s previous candidates were able to pass their technical tests, but the candidates provided by Jefferson Frank were able to competently prove their experience, furnishing Pearl with a choice they hadn’t previously had.

Just two weeks after Jefferson Frank received details of the position, Pearl had a new Front End Developer who has been able to tackle their challenges head-on and is already developing actionable solutions and making informed decisions that are improving Pearl’s products.

Jefferson Frank later found a DevOps Engineer for Pearl and is continuing to help them grow their team. Pearl has also referred Jefferson Frank to another business.

The benefits

By engaging with a specialist staffing organization with practical knowledge of the market in their area, Pearl was able to slash their time-to-hire and onboard the kind of senior candidates with the right skills that they’d previously been unable to find.

The team at Jefferson Frank communicated clearly with Pearl throughout every step of the process, offering support and accurate information that helped Pearl attract the talent they needed and better understand the market in their area.

Inkling

Technical leadership talent at lightning speed.

The challenge

Inkling creates mobile-first software solutions designed to help frontline employees access the knowledge and information they need to get the job done right. To continually develop and improve their products, Inkling employs DevOps principles, which require strong leadership from their tech team.

When a key DevOps Manager decided to leave, the impact was immediate and two-fold: Inkling’s small internal cloud team was short on resources, and the Inkling leadership team was missing a critical member.

Inkling was under pressure to find a managerial-level professional with both AWS experience and a background in DevOps. Inkling recognized that sourcing suitable candidates would be a unique challenge, especially since they needed someone who could step into the role fast.

The solution

With the urgent need to fill a high-level niche role, Inkling turned to Jefferson Frank.

Thanks to their unparalleled network, the team at Jefferson Frank quickly built a list of candidates with the right combination of technical knowledge and leadership experience. This feat was accomplished by using their extensive knowledge of AWS skill sets, coupled with an appreciation for Inkling’s company culture.

Within a single day, Inkling received a shortlist of qualified, pre-vetted candidates. Three days later, the candidates were interviewed, and soon thereafter, Inkling onboarded a new DevOps Manager.

The benefits

Because the team at Jefferson Frank possesses an in-depth understanding of AWS skills and the right relationships within the cloud market, Inkling received an impressive list of candidates with speed.

Jefferson Frank’s absolute dedication to AWS enabled the team to know immediately what types of candidates to look for, where to find them, and how to size up a candidate’s skills quickly, all of which cut down the overall time-to-hire.

Inkling cited the Jefferson Frank team’s professionalism, speed of delivery, candidate quality, and diligence throughout the process as their most impressive merits.

GuidePoint Security

Qualified contract resource to get the job done fast.

The challenge

An elite team of certified cybersecurity experts, GuidePoint Security delivers business-critical security solutions for big-name customers on a daily basis; when a job comes in, they often need extra resource quickly to be able to successfully execute their projects.

When a GuidePoint Security customer—one of the largest accountancy firms in the world—began work building out their next-generation cloud platform, the firm needed talented AWS professionals to help them deliver.

Faced with a tight turnaround, GuidePoint Security knew that its internal teams would be unable to source the candidates needed in time.

The solution

GuidePoint Security turned to Jefferson Frank to source these candidates fast. The company needed multiple AWS DevOps Architects and Engineers, and had a very specific candidate profile in mind—they needed DevOps skills and cloud computing experience, but even more importantly than that, they required candidates who were a great culture fit, had a positive attitude and were hungry to learn.

Jefferson Frank was able to source candidates with the skills, high-level enterprise experience, and the incredible drive that GuidePoint Security needed to deliver results for their client.

In the 18 months that they’ve been working with GuidePoint Security, Jefferson Frank has delivered four permanent and nine contract AWS professionals.

The benefits

According to Practice Director Jonathan Villa, it’s a customer-centric attitude that sets Jefferson Frank head and shoulders above other recruitment firms.

“Jefferson Frank is all about attention to detail,” Jonathan says. “There’s no comparing them to other firms that we have worked with; everyone at Jefferson Frank is focused on the value they can add to our company. They’re not just about selling a body.”

“The time-to-hire and the quality of the candidates you get with Jefferson Frank is simply unbeatable.”
