What was the scope of their involvement?
We work with KitRUM when a client presents us with urgent hires and there’s no time for our entire onboarding and screening process. Because KitRUM has a large talent pool available to them, which they can quickly and effectively screen, they provide us with qualified candidates in a short period. We send them the job requirements and usually within one or two days, we have the resumes of talented applicants.
They also provide us with a first-week trial, so that if an engineer is not a good fit, they can be easily replaced. That has given both the client and us a lot of confidence in onboarding the KitRUM personnel.
Our biggest client is a startup that just launched their first site, and we worked with KitRUM to provide them with two data science and machine learning engineers. Upon initial hire, the client wasn’t ready for the two engineers to begin their work with Python. However, KitRUM is so talented at finding dedicated and driven personnel, that these two engineers immediately engaged with different roles to help the client.
What is the team composition?
I’ve met the CEO in-person twice, once in Poland and once in San Francisco. I’ve also worked directly with the founder, and recently, a new team member that will be managing clients and projects. All three of them are personable, kind, and down to earth.
How did you come to work with KitRUM?
One of the founders initially reached out to me, and I was impressed with his technical savvy. KitRUM then produced a wealth of resumes that were extremely well screened, so we continued working with them.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve invested roughly $50,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We began working together in April 2017, and the work is ongoing.
