Because a great resumé doth not always beget a great developer

trap

As a startup founder, your cup runneth over with tasks. You feel rushed to find applicants, desperate to hire and doubtful at every turn. And you lack the time to summon righteous software engineer applications from the hoards of wicked ones.

That’s why you’re called to try Lemon for your next dev hire. When 1,000 developers step forth to join the Lemon Developerhood, only 300 are appointed. Chosen Devs endure 4 levels of judgment on the path to ascension.

The Resumé Review

After CV and LinkedIn check, we cut devs who offer an inglorious portfolio and lack outstanding experience

Personal Prostration

All the survivors undergo the screening call (soft skills and language proficiency check)

Hard Skills Check

Our top devs check the remaining heroes (Heroes sent by partner companies are checked by their onsite team management)

The Dev’s Advocate

The final reckoning! We accept those passionately committed to the startup hustle with the work ethics of a deity

A UTOPIA OF OUTSTAFFED
SOFTWARE ENGINEERS

We’ve had a full-time developer with Lemon for over 6mos and he’s definitely part of the team now. He helped develop our API, web and mobile app. Definitely been a great experience and we’ll continue working with him.
