When hiring OutSystems developers, finding the right fit for your company can be challenging. More often than not, they lack the proper skill set and qualifications. Add to that the costs and time associated with recruiting, onboarding, and training them to be job-ready, and you have an unbearable overhead. And even then, it is not guaranteed that the candidate is the right fit for your organization and business needs resulting in a high employee turnover.
With our risk-free Hiring solution – the Zero Risk Ramp Up Program – we will recruit, teach and prepare the trainees, and you will get access to a new talent pool of qualified and job-ready candidates. Additionally, we will support you throughout the first months till you're ready to decide which newly qualified OutSystems Developers are a better fit for your company's culture and needs.
According to a report on Digital Leadership 2021 by the Harvey Nash Group, 67% of the respondents reported a skills shortage. Gartner further adds that nearly nine in ten executives say their organizations either already face skill gaps or expect gaps to develop within the next five years. The demand for qualified tech talent is rather high, and the tendency is to keep it so.
This tendency is also noticeable in the low-code platforms market, and the OutSystems landscape is no different. The lack of OutSystems Professionals is so significant at the moment that over fifty percent of the OutSystems Speed of Change report respondents declared that it is challenging to hire full-stack developers.
Even if organizations can surpass the hurdle of finding qualified talent in the market, the challenge doesn't end here. New hires often need a ramp-up process targeting your OutSystems landscape. However, in-house training is usually a burden and a distraction from the organization’s core business. Being traditionally done in a best-effort approach and, more often than not, on the job.
Finding talent, let alone candidates with the right skill set to integrate our teams, was challenging. However, since we partnered with ITUp, all the guesswork and uncertainty when hiring has vanished. All candidates they send our way can be immediately brought up to speed on any project we are working on.
All our graduates are hand-picked, highly-motivated individuals who go through an intensive training program towards helping them become outstanding OutSystems professionals. Nonetheless, you only hire individuals that meet your expectations and fit your organization's culture. This reflects the confidence we have in our admissions process, the investment we make in our trainees, and the quality of our curriculum.
All our candidates go through a strict screening process designed to select only the top and highly-motivated individuals – our program has an admissions rate of only 6%.
However, the challenge is just beginning! The boot camp is intensive, and highly demanding, and not all trainees finish it. In fact, as little as 67% of the trainees reach the end. The assessments and assignments are designed to ensure they are job-ready and prepared to add value to your teams and your projects from day one. They will be excluded from the program if they are not, thus guaranteeing that only the best professionals are placed.
Our curriculum was developed based on detailed research of what companies are looking for in an OutSystems developer. We don’t just focus on teaching the students theoretical concepts and to code, but how to problem-solve and work in a real-life project environment.
Additionally, our human-skills coaches guide and teach them to clearly and accurately communicate in a professional setting. Besides the numerous assessments and assignments they have to deliver, our graduates also take the official OutSystems exam, which 100% of them successfully pass, which recognizes them as certified OutSystems developers.
We take the time to understand your talent requirements to ensure that the hired graduates fit your needs and your organization's culture. Still, we will closely work with you and your teams to guarantee a successful onboarding. You will quickly realize that every graduate from our program is driven and qualified.
Notwithstanding, if, for any reason whatsoever, it is not a right fit, we will help you find a better candidate – ever since our program began, we have had a hiring success rate of over 99%, with every customer reporting excellent results and high employee retention. Without the hassle of recruiting, training, and preparing the candidates in-house, there is 0% risk for your organization and 100% success in filling in the talent gap.
As essential as learning all the tech skills to become a software developer is making sure that our trainees also know how to communicate and interact in an enterprise setting.Throughout the whole 12 weeks of our program, trainees will regularly have sessions with our coaches to help them develop their human skills.
