For better working life
Traditional IT recruitment often results in unhappy people. Talented is the developers' strike back for headhunters' mass emails, recruiters' poor domain knowledge and company cultures that simply don’t understand the process of creative problem-solving.

The story of Talented

Everyone wants to hire a developer, but they might not know where to actually find one and how to stand out to potential employees in an oversaturated field. 

An experienced developer will not go long without a job, but there’s a downside to being that popular: for example, they get swamped with irrelevant messages from headhunters on LinkedIn, and sometimes end up at job interviews where the interviewer doesn’t talk tech, let alone understand the factual content of the open role.

We realised that both developers and the companies looking for them need some support in order to form a mutually beneficial working relationship. So, we got to work and started building a better working life for everyone. 

We picked the side of the developers in order to develop the field from their perspective, Talent first and the rest second. 

We still find ourselves on that same path, but we now have over 4000 developers and designers with us. We support them in searching for a new job, pondering different career paths, and other things they might encounter during their careers.

Transparent

Openness and honesty are the basis of everything we do. We want to be fully transparent with all stakeholders, without ever risking anyone’s privacy.
