Amidst the ongoing tech talent crunch, hiring developers is a vital challenge for global companies. But finding the right developers is a critical priority: the costs of mis-hires can be dire, especially for software development roles.

Geektastic: technical assessments for scaling businesses

That’s why we’re so excited to be partnering with Geektastic, experts in technical skills evaluation. This new partnership brings vital technical assessment expertise to our partner network. 

Using Geektastic’s technical assessment and code challenge platform, companies can evaluate candidates’ skills with a single assessment.

To streamline the process and enhance the candidate experience, the platform allows candidates to complete tasks flexibly and remotely. This hassle-free process leaves exactly the right impression on the candidates themselves, in addition to helping companies to determine each candidate’s suitability.

In contrast to most of their competitors, Geektastic’s evaluations aren’t automated. Expert humans review candidates’ code, in order to provide a fair and comprehensive assessment of code quality, maintainability and problem solving skills. In keeping with Geektastic’s exceptionally high standards, these expert assessors are drawn from places like Amazon and Google.

It’s this no-compromise approach that enables Geektastic to guarantee 24-hour turnaround on assessment, giving engineering teams the information they need to proceed. Their innovative approach is helping businesses to slash their time to hire and ensuring that they hire the right talent. 

Playroll: powering global teams

Playroll operates a technology-enabled platform that makes it possible for companies to expand their teams globally, and retain their best people.

Through Playroll’s network of international subsidiaries, companies can hire in 170 countries, without the need to establish their own legal entities. In addition to Employer of Record services, Playroll offers support for remote hiring of independent contractors. 

Thanks to this partnership, Playroll clients will be able to leverage Geektastic’s technical assessment and code challenge platform to sustainably scale their global teams. 

Moving the dial on global tech recruitment 

For global companies, this new synergy between Playroll and Geektastic is a promising one. It promises to enable seamless journeys from assessment to hiring.

Once candidates are evaluated for optimal fit through Geektastic, they can be swiftly and compliantly hired, onboarded and added to payroll using Playroll’s best-in-class platform.

That’s how companies can win the global race for tech talent, and we’re both ready to play our part.

To celebrate our partnership, Rick Brownlow, Geektastic’s CEO & co-founder, will be participating in our upcoming panel discussion, on how to avoid hiring the wrong software development talent. Join us on 10 November at 3PM BST/5PM CAT, to learn more.
