Jamie Carruthers - Co-founder HandsHQ

I've found We Got Coders' trainees superb - we've just hired our fourth. We also appreciate the attention after their trainees have been placed; as a senior developer Dan visits us weekly to help the them out with any problems. So far, their trainees have been enthusiastic, competent and a welcome addition to our company. Hiring new developers in London can be tough, using We Got Coders has meant we've cut out a lot of the hard work. We know we have an exceptional source of talent to draw on when we need to expand our team.

Challenge

HandsHQ launched in 2013 to provide building contractors with the necessary legal documentation in order to meet compliant standards in health and safety when working on client sites. They began their project using a number of off-site contract developers, but found freelance resources inconsistent, unreliable and poor value for money. They felt the time was right to hire someone full time and bring the development in-house.

Solution

They looked to We Got Coders to help them with this task. Jamie explains, “My biggest concern was that a junior developer would be too inexperienced for us. By the end of the three months the candidate was more than proficient and after six months was more of a mid-weight developer. Dan made sure that they had all of the support they needed during the first three months. Dan exceeded our expectations and he felt like part of our team throughout.”

Result

Since making their first hire, HandsHQ have employed three We Got Coders developers and grown their business into a sustainable and profitable company.

“Since our first We Got Coders developer joined us, we’ve been able to react quicker to the demands of our customers, improving our product and landing bigger clients.”

“Now we know that the We Got Coders model works, we know we have an exceptional source of talent to draw on when we need to expand our team.”
