Do you want to know what services IT recruiters use to fill their needs? How do recruiters implement them in their work and where search for tech specialists? You are in luck: especially for you, we've prepared a brief overview of tools for high-quality tech recruiting!

In this article, we'll introduce the main services for tech specialists searching, highlight the pros and cons of platforms and share a brief overview of our own service, which is called CVHub.

AmazingHiring. A platform for tech specialists search

Today Amazing Hiring is one of the most popular services in tech recruiting. The platform has a large number of advantages:
  • A wide candidate database: according to the founders' data, the service has more than 600 million CVs of tech specialists.
  • Detailed professional biography of candidates: their experience, publicly available contact details, key skills of specialists.
  • The ability to communicate with specialists through the service.
Despite the fact that Amazing Hiring solves many problems of IT recruiters and has greatly simplified the troublesome search for IT specialists, the service has several significant drawbacks:
  • 1
    AmazingHiring is a relatively expensive service. A year of using the platform costs for about 3000 euro for one IT recruiter. The price includes the ability to look through 1000 candidates' CVs per month. In order to use the service by several recruiters, export contact details of specialists, as well as get access to webinars on working with the system, you'll have to pay more.
  • 2
    Sourcing automation. Despite the fact that AmazingHiring highlights automated search of specialists as one of the main advantages, we are more likely to consider this aspect as a minus: even AI technologies malfunction and don't always allow you to select the relevant candidates as carefully as services based on manual selection of IT specialists.

GitHub. Web service for hosting tech projects

Like popular social media such as Facebook, GitHub allows developers to communicate with each other, but most importantly - the service allows tech professionals to host their own code, share it with colleagues and jointly develop it in open source.

It is important to realize that this is not a specialized platform or service for tech recruiting. First of all, GitHub is a place for hosting and reviewing code, joint code modification, developers' communication.

Pros and cons of using Github

  • You can use it for free
    You can find a portfolio of tech specialists registered on the service, get access to their contact details, track their activity and participation in coding.
  • GitHub has a complex interface
    To figure out how to use the service most effectively, you waste a lot of time, especially if you are a novice tech recruiter.
Nevertheless, any professional tech recruiter will definitely use the service, as they understand that there they can find worthy candidates. Similar platforms for IT-specialists search can also include StackOverflow and Habr.

Habr. Career. Job board for tech professionals

First of all, the website is intended for job search and openings posting. This isn't a parser or an aggregator: all the CVs that you can find on the website are a portfolio of registered users.

At the moment, there are about 130 thousand CVs of tech specialists in the Habr.Career database. The cost of accessing the database for 1 year will cost you 750 euro.

CVHub. Your personal IT-recruitment agency

CVHub is a specialized platform for tech specialists' search and it was launched on the basis of the Lucky Hunter agency. This is a unique solution in IT recruiting: we managed to keep the best that the market can offer now, but at the same time we've got rid of the main disadvantages.

    • You'll find only relevant contact details and verified information about the experience of specialists in the developers' portfolio.
