The first assessment and sourcing platform for tech talents in the UK
As technology is evolving at an extremely fast pace and cycles of innovation shorten, companies need to stay ahead of the curve and work with highly qualified tech talents. Training their IT staff every three years isn’t an option anymore and the shortage of skilled candidates in the market impacts the increasing number of tech projects on the way.
To help companies overcome these challenges, SkillValue has developed an assessment platform to enable them to evaluate their (future) back-end, front-end, mobile, devops and data developers as well as other related tech profiles like scrum masters, product owners and even CTOs.
With over 1,000 IT tests (quizzes & coding exercises) covering more than 160 technical skillsets, the company offers start-ups and IT consulting firms seeking the best developers a way to accelerate and safeguard hiring processes.
On top of this, with its large pool of freelancers, SkillValue helps its clients save time and money by sourcing the best tech talents. This service includes the custom selection process carried out by SkillValue’s CTOs and talent acquisition experts, hard and soft skills tests to find the best fit, end-to-end contractual support and free freelancer replacement.
Since its creation in 2015, SkillValue has worked with some of the most prestigious companies and brands such as Made.com, Cloud Margin, Trip Advisor and Adidas.
"I am proud to join the SkillValue adventure and to support companies in their challenges of selecting IT profiles (freelancers or recruitment)," said Yan Jones, UK Sales Director of SkillValue.
"The skill shortage and the current pandemic are bringing new challenges to companies that need to accelerate their digital transformation. We are innovating on a daily basis to help speed up the deployment of their digital projects. Our goal is to grow our presence initially in the United-Kingdom and, by the end of the year, in the United States.”
