Most recently, we have filled the vacancy of a senior ASO specialist in an international startup in just a month. Our recruiter had a high level of expertise and knowledge of the IT market, so she determined that this profession appeared in the IT field not so long ago and many specialists simply did not have time to gain team leadership experience.
At the same time, only 30% of the specialist's future tasks involved team management — this helped us to build a strategy for further search. We convinced the client to consider candidates who did not have experience as a team lead, but at the same time their professional background was rich. The candidate who got the offer was interested in gaining new management experience, as well as solving problems on ASO optimization.
However, we managed to negotiate with the customer and convince him to consider a candidate from the region: the customer listened to our advice, as a result he liked the suggested specialist very much and made him an offer. Also we were able to convince the candidate to move to Saint Petersburg using point 1 :) He dreamed of moving to his favorite city a lot, so after receiving the offer, he agreed even with the absence of a relocation package.
