OpenTeams - The Future of Software

Hiring

Hiring technical experts is often difficult. Hiring open source software experts can be doubly so. With commercial software, there are often training courses and certification programs that tell you a candidate’s level of expertise. Or you can look at their work history for proof. With open source software, there may be few courses and nearly no certifications. Further, an expert’s experience may have been gained through volunteer contributions to the open source library with little documentation.
OpenTeams has the experience with and close connections to the open source software communities to understand a candidate’s level of expertise. We can find the candidates you are looking for and help assess their qualifications.

Multiple Hiring Options

When demand for talent is high and supply is low, new strategies for hiring can help you break through the talent drought. In addition to traditional hiring options, OpenTeams has some innovative approaches to filling those hard-to-find roles.

Direct Hire:

You have identified the specific skills and experience you need to fill a position in your organization. You can take the time required to find the perfect fit and can afford a candidate with all the right skills and experience. We will use our extensive network to find candidates who meet your requirements.

Contract-to-Hire:

Your deadlines can’t accommodate a protracted search but you don’t want to hire someone permanently who may not have all the capabilities your team needs. A contract-to-hire arrangement can help with this situation. We assess your needs and find a candidate we believe will succeed in the role. We hire that candidate and assign them to work for your company on a contract basis. If at the end of the contract you are happy with our candidate, you can hire them permanently.

Residency:

For especially high-demand skill sets, one strategy is to find a candidate with skills they have learned in an adjacent field and complete their training on the job. Our Residency program does exactly that. Like a medical residency, our residency program pairs a seasoned expert with new talent to provide the skills and experience you need.
