Search Leaders, LLC selected to find senior level product engineer for Minneapolis-based software company.
Our client is a Twin Cities-based enterprise software solutions firm. For over a decade, the goal has been to support and grow by partnering with other local businesses on their critical technology needs. They take pride in maintaining long lasting relationships by offering quality service and staying the course as far as current technologies. Our client has consistently been one of the top workplaces to work in the Twin Cities metro area.
Our client has seen a significant increase in business over the last 24 months resulting in a higher demand for professional technology staff. With additional support being the primary concern, demand in the Twin Cities for the skills desired continues to increase. The goal was to find an individual with senior level experience in the product management space, and able to hit the ground running. Our client proceeded with Search Leaders, LLC on a contingent basis to identify a fitting candidate.
Search Leaders, LLC initially lined up between 7 to 10 candidates within the product management platform that also had extensive experience with the SaaS based products and a devops methodology. In addition to the technical expertise, our client required a candidate with a natural culture fit, given the team atmosphere they have created. With the help of the Search Leaders, LLC team and their connections, the pool was narrowed down to a “short-list” of candidates.
With roughly 10 applications for the position, one of our candidates interviewed over the phone with the Human Resource Director and then the Chief Product Officer. Our candidate was instantly the front runner for the position and was pursued for a final round interview before extending an offer. Our “passive” candidate accepted the offer and was thrilled about the new opportunity ahead, and our client was grateful to land the candidate that best fit the role. This process instantly warranted an additional opportunity with our client for a UX designer role.
