Searching for highly talented and self-propelled developers

Today, many companies struggle to fill tech-related roles locally. From developers to designers — companies have to broaden their search for skilled candidates. Per Rundblom, co-founder at Great People Applications, faced that same issue.


Great People Applications is a SaaS startup dedicated to helping companies recruit through referrals. It works with companies like PwC and Boston Consulting Group. Initially, Per was looking to hire a developer in Stockholm, Sweden for a project. But that proved harder than he expected. After a fruitless search on his home turf, he realized he needed to look for talent elsewhere.


Enter Pangara.


Pangara was recommended to Rundblom through a referral. And so the consulting process began. At first, Rundblom told Pangara his candidate requirements. Next, he was presented with a handpicked developer, deemed the best match for his needs. Finally, Pangara set up all the admin details and let them get to work. Here’s his experience in his own words.

“The skill sets I was looking for are nearly impossible to find and attract. Working with the Pangara team solved my concerns.”

What Was the Hiring Process Like?

In short, we were looking for highly talented and self-propelled developers. People with the potential to understand our business and challenges. And to be specific, iOS, Android or Javascript developers. Best case, someone with experience in React and React Native.


We had about one or two calls with Pangara describing our needs and challenges. After around two weeks, they presented us with the perfect candidate. One Skype interview later and we were up and running with a very solid developer.
