About the Client

Atolia is a SaaS platform that offers users an all-in-one app built to ease communication and increase productivity of teams.

Their platform has three main focuses:

  • Swift collaboration via instant messaging
  • Better Organization through shared calendars
  • Project Management

In 2019, Atolia raised 700,000 euros in funds to facilitate development of their product throughout Europe.

Collaborating with SkillValue

The Challenge

Coupled with the difficulty of screening qualified candidates effectively – Atolia’s CTO reached out to SkillValue.

Utilising SkillValue’s expertise, Atolia’s CTO was able to assess candidates hard/soft skills, including technical knowledge through our proprietary assessment platform.

The Solution

After taking advantage of our free trial, Atolia’s CTO signed up for “SkillValue’s starter package” allowing for 20 monthly technical tests to be sent to freelancers. Additionally, Atolia also activated SkillValue’s “Campaign” allowing them access to 600+ technical tests, sent directly to selected candidates.

Taking advantage of our proprietary assessment platform, Atolio used tests for both French and English positions; notably in Front-End Development. This helped them gauge their candidates’ language skills and facilitate smooth communication throughout their active markets – a must for any cross cultural business.

Aline, SkillValue Key Account Manager worked alongside our client to manage all testing campaigns ran successfully.

The Results

Throughout the entire recruitment campaign, Atolia sent approximately 20 Front-End tests to 5 different candidates. More specifically, the client used Front-End, JavaScript, Vue.JS, Node.JS and React quizzes, with difficulty levels ranging from beginner to medium.

After completing the technical tests, Atolia’s CTO received direct access to the candidates profile/technical score/culture fit. With this, he’s able to rank/benchmark his first choice to last.

These tests allowed our client to objectively source and screen candidates who worked with Atolia’s technology stack and were available to start the project ASAP.

Following the technical tests, their CTO interviewed a shortlist of candidates and found the right fit for the project and for Atolia.

Alongside SkillValue, Atolia carried out a successful JavaScript recruitment of 2 developers, in just 2 months.

Technical Environment:

– JavaScript
