1. Boosting the company's employer brand
Key to our success in solarisBank was boosting their employer branding – promoting solarisBank among the engineering community as the product-first company that they are. We did this by promoting solarisBank on LinkedIn and other social media; utilising existing engineers’ networks; advertising vacancies on various job boards; and actively promoting solarisBank in Slack communities.
2. Agile hiring process
We also took an agile approach to recruitment in order to meet solarisBank’s ever-changing needs. Every week, we met with the VP of Engineering to evaluate which roles had become most critical and focus our sourcing efforts on these.
3. Working on 20+ roles at once
At the same time, we continued to screen applicants and move candidates through the interview process for the 20+ roles we were working on at any one time, in order to ensure candidates had an enjoyable interview experience.
4. Over 50 technical hires
Our efforts paid off: since we first joined solarisBank in-house in March 2018, we’ve made over 50 technical hires – a significant contribution to solarisBank’s growth from around 100 people to 200+ employees.
