The challenge

Busy schedule

Jelle juggles multiple roles, including software engineer, team manager, hiring manager, and tech recruiter, leaving him with little time for sourcing and hiring.

Low inbounds quality

Jelle tried posting job openings on a popular job platform. He remembers the experience with slight agony. Out of 130 applications, only 2 were relevant, causing him to waste valuable time.

Quote: Posting a job ad was close to horrible for us. 95% of the CVs that I had to read through were simply irrelevannt. That ate up my time.
