Finastra is one of the largest fintech companies in the world, offering a broad portfolio of solutions for financial institutions of all sizes, employing over 10,000 employees globally.
As many companies put hiring on hold, Finastra kept going to drive growth and started to receive massive volumes of applications which required a thorough screening process and quality check.
The hiring process required many changes, but COVID-19 only accelerated the digital transformation that started long before. Finastra was on the right path to start hiring remotely, hiring top candidates faster, and staying competitive.
The team streamlined the recruitment process by decreasing the number of technical interviews, replacing them with CodeCheck and CodeLive which saved hours of engineering time.
The new process was not only faster but also more convenient for candidates. “Every candidate receives only one CodeCheck assessment. They can take the test whenever they want, when they have time, are focused and most productive,” says Sabina.
With almost a double number of applications received compared with last year and by creating code checks and remote interviews through Codility, the hiring managers had the confidence and the tools to select good matches for their teams.
A fully remote hiring process improved the recruitment metrics. Within only 6 months, the team decreased the time to hire by 28%. By using Codility, the team also decreased the engineering time involved in the recruitment process by 50%.
What Changed After Implementing Codility?
The hiring managers and recruiters at Finastra now have more standardized ways to assess technical candidates and match them with opportunities.
The new reality also opens new opportunities, allowing Finastra to reach out to new locations, open a wider candidate pool, and therefore bring candidates with more diverse backgrounds.
