OUR process


We recruit, host, manage and retain your team. Read on to see how we do it.

OUR process


We recruit, host, manage and retain your team. Read on to see how we do it.

 

Our entire process is simple and transparent. After the initial paperwork is sorted out via e-signature service, we are ready to start the recruiting process for your team.  

recruiting your team

Getting the right talent takes expertise and dedication. We have an entire recruiting department dedicated to just that. All you need to do is send us your qualification requirements (we even have templates for most common positions to help you out).

  • Once we know who you are looking for, we source candidates via local job postings as well as our vast database of known tech talent. 
  • We pre-screen all applicants to make sure we only present you candidates with strong English communication skills.
  • You get all resumes we believe are worth looking at, as well as our briefs for each resume, which provide you our impression of the candidate and their compensation expectations. You choose who you want to interview.
  • We arrange online interviews with the candidates of your choosing. All candidates come to our office for their interview, in a room specifically equipped for this purpose. You can interview a candidate as many times as you like; we suggest that there are at least two interviews: one technical, where you establish whether the candidate has the skills you need, and the other a more general one, to align mutual expectations, understand the candidates motivations, communication skills and so on.
  • You decide when you are ready to make an offer to any candidate you have interviewed. You let us know the conditions of the offer and we make a formal offer to the candidate on your behalf. Typically we will need the compensation number you are offering and sick days/vacation policy. Often offers include various perks such as gym memberships, private health insurance (very affordable in the Ukraine)  among other things. Most if not all developers in Ukraine will consider travel (infrequent but regular) to your head office as a powerful perk.
  • Once the candidate accepts the offer, we do a quick on-boarding process when he or she signs all legal paperwork, gets oriented in the office, etc. 

Note: we typically advise to start with hiring the "team lead" first - the most senior technical member of your future team. This will make the process of all subsequent hiring and interviews significantly easier and more effective. 

Hosting your team

We provide office space and workstations for all your team members as a part of our standard package fee. Our offices are comfortable, secure, air-conditioned and provide everything developers need for productive work. So there is nothing for you to take care of - once the candidate is hired he can start work right away and be all set. There is coffee, tea and snacks available for everyone as well.

Our standard workstations are Windows or Linux PC with moderate spec. If your project requires high spec'ed machines or Macs, this can be easily arranged - we just bill you for the cost difference. 

We also include weekly English lessons for your team in our standard package.

HR management and retention

Once your team is all set up, we will make sure they are happy, taken care of, and there is nothing standing in the way of them being a productive and integral part of your company. Social events like lunches, office parties and regular chats let us keep on eye on your team's overall health. We remain in regular contact with you and provide regular updates on your team's mood and performance. 

In other words, at this stage we act as your local HR/Talent management department for your team.

Note:  we do not get into your team's development process or provide any technical guidance. Our framework assumes that you lead your team in Ukraine from the project management and technical perspective. 

payroll,  taxes and legal

From the legal standpoint, what we do is very similar to a staffing agency model. We hire and pay your developers on your behalf.  You contract our company and pay us your developers' salaries and our management fees. Once a month we send you one invoice with everything included and once it is paid we distribute salaries to your team members. We also take care of their payroll taxes, social insurance and everything else required to keep you and your team focused on what actually matters - their productivity.

Lastly, all team members sign comprehensive agreements assigning and protecting your IP rights, committing them to non-disclosure policies, security compliancy, and everything else required to keep your lawyers happy. We typically provide all templates but you are more than welcome to craft your own.

Sounds good? Let's get rolling!

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between what you do and outsourcing?

Outsourcing involves hiring an external team for a specific project. It's fine if you have a clearly defined task you need handled, but can end up being very expensive if the project is more involved than expected. And an outsourced team is ultimately not your resource, so you will have limited say over processes or team members.

Unlike outsourcing, Gointeractive’s approach means your resources belong to you exclusively, and act as an extension to your existing product or development team. Of course, if you only have a temporary project with a limited scope, then outsourcing might be the best way to go. But if you’re looking to rapidly grow your tech team without sacrificing quality or control, Gointereactive’s model can’t be beat.

 

How long do I usually have to wait before I can expect to see candidates?

It depends to a certain degree on how specialised the skills are that you’re looking for, but generally you can expect to see your first qualified candidates after around 2 weeks. We have often been able to get things all sewn up and your new team member(s) in place within a month.

 

What if it doesn’t work out and we have to let the person go?

Then you let them go! They are your resource. The only thing we ask is that you give us 1 month notice, so that we can make sure the transition goes smoothly.

 

Do you charge anything if we don’t end up taking someone?

No, if we don’t find someone that fits, there is nothing to pay.

 

What is the smallest team you will consider hiring for?

We can do a team as small as one person. The advantage with our arrangement in this case is that even those with no direct team members on site can feel part of the Gointeractive team, and benefit from our support and office camaraderie.

 

Does everyone work in the same office in Kiev?

Virtually all of our supported teams are working out of the Kiev office at the moment. However, we are planning on opening new offices in other cities in Ukraine where there is an abundance of tech talent.
