Apiumhub is a technology company specialising in software development and architecture. Currently we are experiencing rapid and sustainable growth and in this article we would like to share with you what we are focusing on while hiring new talents. 

In 2022 Abel Fernandez – well-known talent acquisition director has joined Apiumhub in order to scale the company to the next level hiring the best Software Development professionals to join our team of experts. 

Employer Branding: how to grow sustainably 

We believe that it is very important to work on employer branding. It is not about creating fairytale stories, it is about showing why software experts join Apiumhub and why they stay with us. So, later on in this post you will read experiences of our team members to know how it is working at Apiumhub from the team itself. In this post we don’t share nice words, things that attract attention, here we share what has worked for us and what our software development team focuses on to hire like-minded people. We have spoken with different departments: backend, frontend, iOS, Android, Data, DevOps, software architecture, QA and here is what everyone has in common: 

  1. Put best practices such as SOLID, CI, TDD, DDD in the center of software development and software architecture 
  2. Build goal-driven working software
  3. Focus on quality rather than quantity
  4. Have T-shaped skills, but become specialist in one area
  5. Be proactive
  6. Have strong problem solving skills
  7. Be pragmatic
  8. Apply design patterns 

One of our core values is “never stop growing” and we always attend our internal training, master classes and open spaces. 

Software architecture plays a key role in our projects and that’s what we are famous for, therefore we give this opportunity to closely work with Christian Ciceri – our Software Architect who is a Global Software Architecture Summit speaker and O’reilly Author. Apart from Christian, we have other software architects who are focusing more on the backend, frontend or mobile parts. We encourage and support knowledge sharing culture and organize projects rotations based on milestones and interests of the team members. 

Apart from a competitive salary, we also offer:

  • Permanent contract
  • 23 days of vacation
  • Remote friendly policy
  • Flexible working hours
  • New office in Paseo de Gracia 
  • Free snacks, coffee and beer
  • Dinners and team activities 
  • Offsites
  • Medical insurance with dental coverage 
  • Free English classes 
  • Personal budget for continuous learning, training and certifications  
  • Team budget just for fun 
  • Book clubs
  • Open spaces 
  • Professional growth 

We believe that a 3 steps recruitment process is the best option:

  1. 30-40minuts introduction meeting to talk about what we can offer you, and know a little bit about you, your experience and your goals. 
  2. 1 hour technical meeting. No-code meeting, just technical discussions.
  3. 30 minutes cultural fit meeting with the CEO of the company
