Skillfer helps connect technologists with top NYC startups and tech companies.
We regularly host free tech events, including technical classes, our own Startup Tours event series and special invite-only happy hours. We also offer free resume reviews for engineers and are always available for a coffee or chat. The goal of these services is to help engineers discover and explore what the growing NYC tech community has to offer.
We also offer full service job placement support. We take the time to get to know you and represent you well. Our clients get our detailed outline of your technical and professional strengths, and you get our coaching and in-depth insight into the interview process. We have a very high success rate with our placements – because we know our clients well – and we work very closely with you throughout the process.
In addition to providing recruitment services for immediate hires, Skillfer offers creative services to help startups build out long-term strategies for attracting top technical talent.
Our services include:
- Employment Branding Strategy
- Designing technical events & community engagement plans
- Developing online outreach strategies, including social media planning, technical blog development, job posting content and rotation schedules
- Interview design and training
- Benefits & perks development and communication, including re-design of your Work for Us page
Our recruitment practices lead to a few, targeted instructions to top candidates and a high success rate. Our relationship is generally with the head of your technical team, and we start the relationship with a deep dive on your technology and culture.
Supporting Women in Tech
We support women in tech and help companies improve their gender diversity. In 2012 and 2013, 45% of our placements were women.
