Challenge

When the client came to Symphony Solutions in December of 2017, they needed quick ramp-up to avoid loss of momentum, as user demand for new mobile gaming applications continues to increase. Additionally, the client requested a new delivery center in closer proximity to their office. Symphony Solutions needed to:

  • Open a new market
  • Create a market presence
  • Attract senior-level talent as quickly as possible

Solution

Symphony Solutions quickly opened a new office in the desired location, hired local specialists in major roles such as Branch Manager, recruiters, public relations, and began to create a presence in this market:

  • Exhibited at large technical conferences
  • Hosted meet-ups, hack-a-thons, Agile trainings
  • Spoke at relevant tech events
  • Engaged a premier local career and industry resource for talent attraction

Next, Symphony Solutions began to learn as much as possible about this market to aid recruiting efforts. As such, lifestyle and attitudinal research was conducted among engineers to understand motivation, benefit expectations, and lifestyle dynamics.

Result

To achieve level of talent needed,

2,471 pre-qualified candidates were personally interviewed
511 of those were client interviewed
80 people were ultimately hired

This means that of nearly 2,500 personal interviews, 3% met scrutiny to be hired.
In less than 1 year, Symphony Solutions:

  • Opened a new office in a new market
  • Hired people in leading positions
  • Created a public presence in this market
  • Increased aided awareness from 36% to 50%
