Our client, an international trading firm headquartered overseas, had become very successful in generating returns for their investors that were 2x to 3x the returns produced by investing in the S&P. The firm was developing proprietary software to use in its trading; however, they were at a crossroads in the architecture and development of the product and did not know which course to pursue. The firm reached out to us to identify and hire a software engineer who could take their development efforts to the next level.
In development, many companies typically hire several contractors with specific skill sets and engage the different contractors at different phases of the project. After an in-depth discussion and analysis with our client’s Senior Management, it was determined that a full-time permanent hire was needed. We then conducted a nationwide search for the desired candidate profile. Our recruiters worked to evaluate and educate prospective candidates on this unique opportunity.
Daley And Associates introduced the top candidate to our client and the placement was made. The complexity of this search is noteworthy because our client was located outside of the United States. We qualified a candidate located in California who was not actively seeking a new role. Once we sold the individual on the opportunity, there were also many logistical difficulties. We assisted the candidate in locating a residence and establishing immediate residency in a short amount of time in order to take advantage of tax incentives offered by the local government. Since the placement, the Software Engineer has completed the product development and continues to make visible contributions to the processes and infrastructure of the firm
