We love to be at the beginning of beautiful stories. Connecting passionate tech talent with inspiring companies is one of those stories, because to us, the future lies in the hands of innovative minds who use technology to improve everyone's lives. With everything we do, we aim to contribute to this cause.
Today's IT recruitment is not in line with this vision. It's inefficient, frustrating, and limits many opportunities to accelerate the development of a better future. Having been close to the industry for many years, we chose to do something about it by creating nexten.io.
We believe developers should be able to talk tech when choosing between job opportunities. We believe that people are inspired by peers who speak the same language, make the same jokes and understand each others pains, because they are (or have been) the same.
Therefore we aim to challenge the status quo of IT recruiting, by reversing the order of contact. When CTOs and Tech leads are the first touch point, the discussion starts with the inspiring part: what the developer is going to create, how he/she is going to master the challenge, and why he/she will succeed.
