You want to find the best-fit engineers. But candidates who speak better than they code require endless interviews before you say no. We pre-select, vet, and screen before you interview. So you only talk to candidates you can say yes to.
Prime your sourcing pipeline
Access a pool of 1300+ vetted senior engineers who are actively looking for a new role now. 80k+ passive candidates.
Save time on screening
You can cut 100+ hours off your hiring process by skipping interviews with unfit engineers to move down the funnel faster.
Calibrate the right signals
80% of startups hire from our first round of candidates because we connect them with tech talent, who meets their standards.
Because we separate smooth-talkers from high-performers
CVs are like Tinder profiles. Most suitors tend to stretch the truth. Full-stack wizards, decades at FAANG, a job history too good to be true. That’s why we dig deeper to find really skilled candidates.
We comb through 500+ job boards, dev communities, and LinkedIn-land to find talent ready for their next role. Then, we check CVs & GitHubs to screen out any who don’t meet our standards. Only the best devs move on.
We pair each candidate with an EM interviewer who has 9+ years of experience in a relevant tech stack. Through 90 minutes of deep tech questions, live coding tests, and code reviews, our tech interviewer validates the candidate’s technical skills.
Soft skills interview
Vetted engineers are screened to ensure they work well in a team. We check if devs are learning-focused, passionately proactive & get things done, along with testing communication skills and conducting a general vibe check.
Thriving at a fast-growing, constantly pivoting startup is a skill. A great-fit dev has to learn and change to stay on top. We select engineers who excel even if today looks nothing like yesterday and tomorrow is a mystery.

Within week of engaging them I had 8 interviews lined up and was able to select not one but 2 new staff. I’ve been a hiring manager for 15 years and I can’t believe how high quality is!
