Software Engineering Recruitment

While investment in Software Engineering has certainly skyrocketed in recent years, there is no doubt there has been a shortfall of technology talent across the board. The competition has been fierce and between The Great Resignation and what we are calling The Great Tech Correction, the ability to build and nurture a tech team with stable growth has been critical. Having a well-informed recruitment partner that you trust in your back pocket is the best investment you’ll ever make!

The tech landscape is constantly in a state of change and for the majority of scaling technology companies, finding skilled talent can be challenging and time-consuming. A ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach rarely attracts success which is why you need an expert team of Software Engineering recruiters in your corner who know what they’re doing and have the track record to prove it.

In a tight recruitment market, having a wide network of contacts among Software Engineers is crucial to an organisation’s ability to scale and innovate. But it’s not just Developers. When it comes to building great Software Engineer teams, we can also help you accrue key roles including QA Engineers, Data Analysts, DevOps Engineers and technical specialists in Cloud, Infrastructure or Cybersecurity as well as technical Leadership positions.

Areas of Specialisation

At Hunt & Co., each of our digital recruitment consultants is laser-focused on sourcing specialised talent within their space. Our Software Engineering areas of specialisation include:

  • Technology Leadership including Head of Engineering, VP of Engineering, Chief Technology Officers (CTOs)
  • Software Engineer
  • QA Engineer and Testing
  • Data Analyst, Engineer and Scientist
  • DevOps Engineer
  • Cloud & Infrastructure
  • Cybersecurity
  • Scrum Master and Delivery Managers
  • Technical Business Analyst

“Carly helped me land a fantastic opportunity with a great company. I was very impressed with her understanding of the clients’ requirements for the new role and ability to provide great advice or answer any questions I had! Carly was extremely helpful every step of the way and a pleasure to work with.”

“Hunt & Co are the experts in sourcing high quality candidates. I’ve used Hunt & Co for several recruitments now and could not be happier with the outcome. They are an incredible team to work with. Highly recommend.”

“To say Carly ‘understood the brief’ is an understatement! Carly was tasked with recruiting a Senior Tech Lead for the Doctors on Demand development team. In a challenging recruitment market, and through a less than ideal time of year, we successfully recruited a great candidate. Carly clearly understood not just the technical requirements of the role, but the culture and type of business the role was being recruited into. A fantastic outcome for the dev team here at Doctors on Demand!”

“They were super friendly, knowledgable, and so responsive. It was my first time hiring someone through a recruiter, and honestly I was pretty daunted to start off with – but they made the whole process easy to navigate, and actually pretty fun! They genuinely care about everyone involved finding a great working situation and are the perfect level of pro-active without being overwhelming. Highly recommend!!!”
