A case study of Socialbakers (Czech based Company with mostly international clients)
How we do hiring at Socialbakers:
Primarily we love Social media. We therefore communicate with our potential hires via:
LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter – we are in touch with likeminded people in the Digital sphere and track each others career life
We invite people to skype interviews or face to face interviews once in Prague and discuss ways of cooperation over great coffee at our beautiful villa in Vinohrady
We rely on a reference system – we want to know how our candidates perform. Social media helps us find out.
There are no barriers: we are hiring all around the world – e.g. Istanbul, Paris, London, Sao Paolo, San Francisco – everything is possible.
The Company constitutes of creative people – our ultimate goal is to keep the energy and vibe and feed it from the inside.
When it comes to hiring, we do not care about lengthy and expensive assessments: results and career history speak for themselves. Attitude matters a lot: what people do not know they can learn with us.
We do not care about traditional job postings. We find recommendations from existing employees much more effective – our employees know who-fits-best and recommend likeminded people from all around the world.
We are diverse mostly in terms of ethical background.
All in all things run at cosmic speed at Socialbakers – we develop our products in Scrum and we live it. Thus traditional methods of hiring do not work for us: they are too lengthy and lack flexibility.
