We help you grow your in-house development team. We recruit the best mid and senior level developers both locally and with relocation on a success fee only basis.

Need someone right away or for a shorter term project? We can also help find contract developers for onsite and remote work.


Tech expertise
As developers ourselves, we can spot the best talent and evaluate tech skills.
Relocation focus
By considering people open to relocation, we can reach many more developers.
Community involvement
We started dev meetups with thousands of members, so we can reach the most active engineers.

No up-front fees
We charge a success fee only when the candidate has received a residence permit and signed an employment contract.
Split payments
The second half of our fee is due when the candidate completes their trial period, helping you reduce risk and improve cash flow.
We are happy to work alongside in house recruiters or other agencies, so you can fill your positions even faster.

Our process

Toughbyte interview. We interview the candidate, presenting your company, position and country as a place to work.

Candidate intro. If they are a good fit, we email you their CV together with our comments, highlighting relevant areas of experience and expectations.

First remote interview. If you want to proceed, we help schedule the first interview. We recommend that you keep this pretty short and use video. Make sure the candidate is a good culture fit and get them excited about working for you.

Remote tech interview. This is your chance to test the candidate’s technical skills. We recommend interactive tech interviews.

Onsite interviews. We suggest inviting candidates for onsite interviews before making them an offer. After these, you have all the info you need to make the an offer.
