They work closely with both the IT development team and the business users in order to ensure that the IT infrastructure meets the needs of the organisation. Additionally, they are often responsible for developing and enforcing policies and procedures related to IT operations.

As technology becomes more integrated into our lives, this number is expected to grow. That's why it's important for hiring managers to understand what drives IT operations and DevOps professionals.

We have been working successfully with alphacoders for some time. What I personally like very much is the uncomplicated and personal exchange, as well as the quick occupation time, which has only lasted an average of 3 months so far. alphacoders understands their trade and we are very happy to have them on our team.

With the help of alphacoders recruiting experts, we were able to successfully fill several challenging roles in our digitalization, IT and purchasing departments.

When looking for qualified employees, we like to rely on specialists. They know the market and the target group and can advise accordingly. So it happens that we have been working with alphacoders since February 2020 and have been able to expand our development team several times. We have found the right service provider for us

Maik Gronau
CEO - GWA Hygiene

alphacoders has become an integral part of our tech recruiting. We have been working together for over 2 years now and have already been able to successfully fill several different positions in IT. As a startup, we very much appreciate the all-encompassing advice from profile sharpening to candidate selection and support in optimising our own internal hiring process. We are very happy to have alphacoders at our side.

Stephanie Werk
Senior Tech Recruiterin - WERTGARANTIE Group

Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a PL/SQL developer. Thanks to the professional support of alphacoders, we were able to fill the position in a very short time. The fact that we worked very closely with the tech recruiters and that we had the same understanding of the market and the special requirements played a major role in our success. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.

Tihomir Sablic
Head of IT - heyworld GmbH

We have been working with alphacoders for more than 2 years now and have had very good experiences so far. The relationship is characterised by trust, solution-oriented advice and open communication at eye level. Through their input, we have already been able to successfully hire 2 backend developers and also rely on their expertise for further tech positions.

Susanne Hasenstab
Head of HR - WEITBLICK® GmbH & Co. KG

Last year we worked with alphacoders for the first time. The cooperation was characterised by professional and very personal support, as well as profound contacts within our target group. What was special for us was that we were actually only looking for one PHP developer, but because of the but due to the suitable selection of candidates we directly hired 2 developers and that within only 3 months. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.

Christina Bombeck
HR Managerin - Fundis Reitsport

We have commissioned alphacoders to search for 2 web developers. The challenge is that we are active in a special niche in e-commerce with the topic of equestrian sports and ideally the ideal candidate should also identify with our sport. In addition to good communication and consultation, we jointly implemented an effective hiring process. alphacoders not only managed to attract many women for this position, but we even managed to hire someone with a love for our sport. We were able to fill both positions with alphacoders and would hire them again anytime.

Tobias Schumacher
CTO & Co-Founder — Closelink

Working with alphacoders was our first experience with a recruiter. We particularly liked the transparent communication and the summary of the search in the form of reports and figures. This helped us to better understand the candidate market and gain deeper insights into recruitment from IT specialists. We can recommend alphacoders 100%.

Ralf Fohrmann
Head of Human Resources - prophete

Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a NAV developer. The special thing about this was the complexity of the market situation: it is a very special position with a very narrow pool of candidates and a very loyal target group. We solved it through trusting and effective communication and adjustments to the profile. One key was certainly that we opened up for a fully remote position and were thus able to find and successfully recruit the right candidate.

Cornelius Lauritzen
CEO — Glambou

With alphacoders we have found a strong partner for our tech recruiting. The feedback loops were short and efficient. Our company, our tech vision and our requirement profile were quickly understood and implemented. The management of the interview process went fabulous for us as well as for the candidates.

Julius Martini
CEO — TimberTom

We have already commissioned alphacoders twice to support us in tech recruiting and they convinced us with the first candidate for both positions (frontend & fullstack developer). The cooperation was very uncomplicated, at eye level and characterized by direct communication. We are very happy to have alphacoders on our side.

Bianca Potapski
HR Managerin — Soil & More Impacts GmbH

We really enjoyed working with alphacoders, it was a professional collaboration on an equal footing right from the start. alphacoders puts itself very well in the client's position and thanks to the regular agreements it always ran smoothly. We have successfully recruited a senior Phyton developer with alphacoders and would recommend alphacoders to others.

Jan Thonemann
Abteilungsleiter Forschung / Entwicklung — PROSOZ

Finding the right people is one of, if not the most key component to an organization's success. At alphacoders it's not about quantity, but about quality.

The short weekly exchange ensure that your ideas are understood and that you are always up to date.

CTO — Monsterzeug

Professional and goal-oriented, I would work with alphacoders again at any time. I've recommended them both internally to other departments and to external stakeholders.
