IT recruiting

We work with IT product companies

It was one of the best hires of the last few years
A year ago, NEWHR helped us find a product analyst, and it was really one of the best hires we have had in last few years. It turned out to be the person with the most growth potential.
The value of that was that NEWHR knew the market well, helped us find what we needed, and, in general, formulated the requirements for the job better than we did.
We ended up with the person we had the best culture fit with for many years. There were more blunders over a year and a half with the people I sourced through my network in the old fashioned way.
Sergey Kurlovich, Founder Invisible
NEWHR provides only relevant candidates without bombarding us with everyone
Interaction with NEWHR has always been the most comfortable and understandable for me. Equally important that it has been consistently finished with success — with hiring a competent specialist.
Due to our heavy workload, it was extremely important to me that the agency would not bombard us with all candidates from the market — but introduce only the relevant people who are really worth spending the time on. Thanks to NEWHR for the hours they saved and their help in building a top team!
Ivan Kozlov, Chief Product Officer Aviasales
And boom! The guys have precisely filled a whole series of top positions
We first got in touch with Kira as a little-known local startup.
Boom + a series of precisely filled top positions = and here we are, already a company with offices on three continents and a venture capital fund. I wish everyone had such recruiting partners :)
Vladimir Zakoulov, Founder and owner of FunCorp — an international company that develops and invests in entertainment services
Help geeks find the best geeks
That is how I would describe my experience with NEWHR.
Filling their vacancy brief was a useful exercise in itself. It has helped me more than once figure out who — and more importantly, what — I am looking for.
Dima Zaryuta, Founder EasyTen
I would be willing to pay just for this brief, but they also find people using it. The magic of recruiting.
They know what they’re talking about
They promptly closed our uncontrollably growing list of vacancies. They know what they’re talking about.
