The problem: A mismatch between the skills offered by developers and the candidates’ actual knowledge

As Thomas Murray was hiring globally, they faced the challenge of finding candidates who would meet their criteria and job-related requirements.

  • Some of the information the candidates provided, such as years of professional work experience, was inflated
  • Recruiters had to conduct ten interviews for one position just to find out that the information provided on paper and the candidates’ knowledge didn’t match.
  • Through trial and error, they realized that to find the most suitable candidates quickly, companies have to either rely on their own candidate database for potential fits or work with a 3rd party with extensive expertise in that area.

During one of their recruitment rounds, Thomas Murray decided to expand their search horizon and dive into the large Turkish talent market. Rather than testing the waters themselves, Thomas Murray relied on the professional experience and knowledge of the TalentGrid professionals, saving a significant amount of time and effort.


The outcome: All six candidates passed the probation term and got hired

  • After a meticulous screening and pre-vetting, TalentGrid shared two batches of suitable matches with Thomas Murray
  • Professionals at Thomas Murray conducted more in-depth interviews with those candidates
  • They were pleased to see that TalentGrid understood their developer needs correctly with a clear picture of their ideal candidate profile.

As a result, six candidates got hired, significantly speeding up the recruitment process, and here’s what Yuri, IT Director at Thomas Murray, has also shared:
