The Modern Hiring Issue Tech Founders Face

Hiring The Wrong Talent

In the fast-paced tech industry, startups often rush the hiring process, leading to the selection of unsuitable candidates. This mismatch can derail a project's momentum and negatively impact team dynamics, hindering the startup's growth and innovation capabilities.

Talent Shortage

Tech startups, especially those in niche markets, face a significant challenge in finding skilled professionals with the right expertise. This talent shortage can delay project timelines and increase the pressure on existing team members, impacting overall productivity and innovation.

Letting Investors Down

Startups are under constant scrutiny from investors expecting rapid growth and innovation. Failing to meet these expectations due to hiring inefficiencies can lead to reduced confidence and support from investors, affecting future funding and growth opportunities.

Burnt Out Employees

Over-reliance on a small team due to hiring challenges often leads to employee burnout. This not only affects morale and productivity but also increases turnover rates, further exacerbating the hiring difficulties and creating a vicious cycle.

Destroying Your Employer Brand

Tech companies need to be careful of who they connect with. Some agencies present candidates that they've never spoken with. This practice can tarnish a startup's employer brand, as the quality of hires directly reflects the company's values and operational efficiency, impacting its attractiveness to potential talent.

Shota Zurabashvili

DevOps Manager of LiveSwitch

When Jessica reached out she was able to represent the role and the company really well so I was truly impressed and hooked. I immediately responded and I’m glad I did. It was a great experience working with her. We soon built an engineering team of 5 rockstars only because Jessica can find talent screened and already a good fit almost out of thin air.

Pankaj Dadhich

SAP Consultant of Illumiti

Meet The Founder

Hello Founders, CEO's, COO's, CTO's and Engineering Managers and Directors. I'm Jessica Smith, your go-to expert in tech recruitment with over a decade of experience.

Having navigated through the recruitment industry for 11 years, I've dedicated myself to mastering the ins and outs of tech talent acquisition.

My career kick-started in various recruitment firms, focusing on multiple sectors, but tech always had a special pull. This led me to a significant role in corporate tech, where I gained crucial insights and a deep understanding of the industry's nuances. Constantly updating my knowledge on the latest tech trends, I've developed a knack for predicting upcoming market shifts, thanks to endless conversations with candidates about their tech preferences.

At Savant Recruitment, the company I proudly founded, we've transformed the recruitment process. The old, impersonal methods were no longer effective. We've embraced a personalized, candidate-centric approach, focusing on understanding individual skill sets and motivations. This strategy has fostered strong, lasting relationships and built a robust network in the tech community.

Our mission at Savant Recruitment is simple yet powerful: to revolutionize tech hiring. Our approach is data-driven, relationship-focused, and always ahead of the curve.

The impact? A vast network of satisfied clients and candidates, with 80% of our business coming from referrals. Our candidates are not just looking for a job; they seek experiences that add value to their lives, and that's precisely what we deliver.
