Software Engineering Recruitment

Building a Career in Software Engineering Arena in SaaS, PaaS and Cloud Tech.

The recruitment sector for Software Engineers in Saas  is desperate for skills with both specialist and broad experience in programming. A market that has been skills short for many decades is now at critical.

Pre-IPO and Venture Backed Business

This is particularly so in the Pre-IPO and Venture Capital backed start up arena. There are some amazing businesses being spawned right now, but as with the major players in software sales, such as Sales Force, skills are short. It takes a certain sort of software engineer to want to work in a business that is inherently seen as more risky.

Recruitment consultancies looking for such skill have to possess a specific knowledge of the software engineering employment market place, all the different portions within it and the way that they fit in concert.

Getting skilled new personnel for corporations who want to broaden their internet marketing department or reinstate staff who have gone is not, still, a difficult job for specialized on line marketing recruitment organization Harvey Thomas.

The Growth of Cloud Solutions

When owner Jon Eyers established Harvey Thomas in 2008 and focused on Software Engineering job opportunities, in this niche, no one, if truth be told, realised what a big role Cloud Based, SaaS applications were going to play.

Nowadays the company is a firmly reputable specialist headhunter in the always changing internet based world, having kept in touch with every novel evolution of technology.

The hiring company has a solid track record spanning more than 10 years of satisfying their customers’ recruiting vacancies for expert, passionate and experienced new on-line Technical Engineering staff.

Harvey Thomas – Different Agency

“In addition to possessing a sizable file of probable proficient candidates that we have established over the years, nearly all of our consultants have been involved in the internet commerce or digital marketing business, so have a considerable knowledge of the talents that a prospective hire requires, and also where to uncover the most excellent people,” says Harvey Thomas co-creator Jon Eyers, who established the corporation from scratch with the business partner Tom Sturgess, remarks, “We keep a database of all Cloud Based Development job candidates we’ve found jobs for in the past and remain in contact with them repeatedly, so we know if they’re ready to find another job and then we can fit them with suitable customers’ requirements”.

“It’s taken a number of years, but I could now boldly say that we have a number of extremely sizable effective – and respected – businesses on our systems quite frequently needing more talent.

On the opposite side of the fence, our clients comprise of new little tech start-ups who got into contact with us because they heard how we have an aptitude with discovering first-class employees with internet based marketing skills.

In addition what’s extremely vital is the company community they feel most relaxed in.

Digital Marketing For The Future

Hi it’s Dan here,

dougAs I knew I was going to be talking to Doug Bates from Digital Marketing recruitment specialists Intelligent People, I thought I out to get properly up to speed with what is going on in that niche.

What I found out, stunned me!

Astounding Growth

The market place is growing at an astounding rate. And, good news for Intelligent People is that 90% of Digital agencies are expecting to hire new staff in 2017 (according to think tank The Drum). This is quite remarkable and to the best of my knowledge there is no other market growing like this at the moment.

“It’s true” says Doug, “we are seeing incredible growth in the market, but we are also seeing other factors at play as well”.

What are those other factors?

“I think the growth is there for all to see. not only do we have eCommerce nowadays, but also mobile or “mCommerce adding to the growth of Digital Marketing per se”, he says in a very serious manner, “it seems only five minutes ago we’d got used to putting our credit card on an online purchase, now we’re also doing the same on mobile devices. I have to be honest and say I just didn’t expect that to happen so quickly”, the first smile I see from him.

How long did you think it would take?


“Good question”, he says and takes a sip of coffee, “if you think back to the start of Amazon, it struggled because people were not sure about the security of buying online. It took almost ten years for that to become commonplace. But, this move to mCommerce has happened in just a couple of years. It’s almost like a natural progression. Once eCommerce became widely accepted, secure and easy to use, mCommerce was just a small leap of faith”.

You mention other factors?

“Yes, indeed, there are probably two other major factors driving the growth of Online Marketing. And, they sort of “hang together”. Technology is a big one and the advances being made are quite spectacular. Of course, that in and of itself brings economies and efficiencies in bucket loads. The knock on effect the new tech gives is that is allowing more and more specialised job functions to be created”, he says.


Can you give me an example?

“Sure”, he thinks a little, “let’s take a look at CRM systems, they are now so advanced we are seeing new roles created such as product manager jobs, or customer insight analysis vacancies. Yes, these are sub branches of general Online Marketing Jobs, but they are specialisms in their own right. The ability to manage your product categories properly and to leverage the technology behind that can bring great dvantages and added profitability”.

“And, I guess it’s the drive for efficiency and therefore higher profits that is behind the whole thing. But it is the bigger companies such as Amazon that area leading the way with innovation. Smaller companies buy in with software such as Sales Force for example. But, Amazon are so powerful they can work at the “bleeding edge” and when that delivers they achieve great advantages”.

Explain “bleeding edge” please?

“Ah, yes, sorry”, he smiles, “it’s the leading edge of driving technology. It’s called bleeding edge as if you get it wrong you lose a lot of money!”

Ahh, I see.

Lifestyle Business

So how is business for Intelligent People?

“Yes, very good indeed”, he now looks relaxed, “we have built a lifestyle business and we want to keep it that way. Both Chris and I came out of London to work near our homes and to build a lifestyle. We now do that for our consultants as well. We aim to build a sustainable and growing business but with a sympathetic edge that allows our people a good work/life balance. It’s working well and we are seeing records fall almost every quarter. We also translate that in to how we deal with our clients and they seem to like it”.

Thanks Doug it’s been very enlightening.

“Any time”, he laughs as his swigs back the last few dregs of his Costa latte.
