The problem: Lyrebird needed to hire for hard-to-fill roles in Turkey

As Lyrebird Studio was hiring for difficult roles, such as senior Android and iOS developers, they experienced the shortage of talent for their open roles in Turkey. Some of Lyrebird’s key requirements for the role included:

  • Extensive experience and problem-solving skills
  • Open-mindness and ability to learn new things quickly as prerequisites in addition to other requirements

After having to work with a few different HR agencies, Lyrebird observed a repetitive behavior pattern when it came to working with 3rd parties. The companies they had worked with wouldn’t fully understand Lyrebird’s requirements and needs, missing out on a specific set of criteria for candidate screening and selection. However, things were different with TalentGrid.

The outcome: Successfully hired new teammates for their development and product-related roles

Despite Lyrebird’s unfortunate experience with 3rd party recruitment companies, they kept searching for external professionals to help them with technical hiring. That’s when they came across TalentGrid, who already had established a community of 40K+ developers in the regions they were hiring for and expertise in tech recruitment. Considering these advantages, Lyrebird decided to give it a shot and work things out as they continue with the recruitment process.

As Lyrebird kicked off their hiring with TalentGrid, they were impressed with the practical and fast approach of TalentGrid’s team:

  • Once Lyrebird’s criteria and role requirements were set, the assigned Talent Partners got in contact with potential candidates to assess their cultural and technical fit.
  • Once verified, the profiles of the most suitable candidates were then passed onto Lyrebird, where they conducted in-depth interviews with the developers.
  • To ensure the smoothness and transparency throughout the hiring journey, Talent Partners were in continuous communication with both parties, measuring progress at each stage of the recruitment process.

Impressed with the speed and practicality of the recruitment process, Lyrebird extended their hiring with TalentGrid to product-related positions as well, getting access to a wider pool of potential candidates. Here’s what Veysi Akbulut, Human Resources & Administrative Affairs Manager at Lyrebird Studio, has also shared:

Compared with other recruitment firms, the quality of candidates TalentGrid shares is considerably higher. For example, in the past, out of 50 candidates, we’d arrange meetings with only one or two of them, whereas TalentGrid sent us four candidates but the meetings were scheduled with 3 of them, so the success rate is significantly higher.”
