Project Overview
Rackspace had been experiencing difficulties in finding qualified talent in Mexico's hiring market. They had more job openings than they could fill with their internal team. They were missing the connection to the local tech ecosystem in Mexico. Also, Rackspace wanted to add speed and quality into their hiring process to fill their positions quickly and repeatedly. They started looking at outside agencies to supplement their already established recruiting team.
Getting involved
Since Rackspace already had experience managings salaries and benefits overseas, CodersLink provided them access to a large talent pool of hard-to-find software engineers, allowing them to interview and recruit quality candidates in Mexico faster.
The Results
Reduced time to fill challenging positions Through CodersLink’s talent pipeline, Rackspace quickly received quality profiles for their positions, identified and interviewed top profiles, and hired the ones they liked. They were able to start delivering on the hiring demand they had without expanding their team internally.
Access to talent pipeline of 14,000 qualified engineers By partnering with CodersLink, they immediately tap into a large pool of engineers in Mexico to fill their requirements. Through our ongoing partnership, Rackspace can turn their access to this pool on or off, depending on their needs.
40% reduction in recruiting costs By using CodersLink’s talent pool and recruiting resources, Rackspace was able to reduce their time-to-hire and the overall time spent by their internal team reviewing CV’s, interviewing, and making hiring decisions. This, alongside lower hiring costs, helped them save big on recruiting costs.
