Bardeen is a rapidly expanding tech startup based in Silicon Valley that recently raised Series A funding. Their goal is to help professionals simplify their jobs by automating tasks and freeing up time to scale companies and build cutting-edge AI products.
While creating a browser extension that makes managing and organizing repetitive tasks across apps easier, the team encountered a challenge in finding the right software engineers to support their growth. Their CTO, Artem Harutyunyan, was in search of software engineers who have expertise in complex programming for web browsers and proficiency in Typescript/React.
Artem wanted to quickly find the perfect fit for his team and streamline the hiring process to ensure seamless integration of new talent in the company.
Prog.AI's revolutionized the hiring process for Bardeen by using deep analysis of GitHub. With a database of 60 million profiles of software engineers from all over the world, it is built from information collected from platforms such as GitHub, GitLab, LinkedIn, and StackOverflow. It also provided detailed technical skills, project history, seniority level, prior work experience, and more to help Bardeen find the right talent.
Prog.AI's advanced algorithms generated a list of 1,000 suitable candidates who met the job description in seconds. Following a personalized email outreach campaign and 40 interviews, Artem and his team were impressed by two candidates, one of whom was Farhan Yahaya, a talented young software engineer from Ghana.
Prog.AI pinpointed Farhan by evaluating his impressive browser extension project on GitHub, which was unavailable on his LinkedIn profile or any other sources. His work in open-source played a crucial role in his success, allowing him to secure a position in a Silicon Valley startup while working remotely.
According to research by Dr. Andrew Chamberlain of glassdoor.com, the average time to hire employees in the US is 22.9 days, with the duration increasing for more complex roles. The study revealed that hiring a software engineer typically requires 35 days and a minimum of 30 interview evaluations.
