Agile recruitment that keeps pace with digital business

Software Engineering & Architecture Recruitment

Stott and May’s Software Engineering and Architecture practice enable hiring managers to access the right skillsets at the right time in a rapidly evolving technology landscape. This provides first mover advantage to our clients as they take the next step in their business transformation. We work with a range of organizations from VC backed startups to large enterprises, all of whom have put innovation in technology at the very center of their business model. To deliver this vision, they need a partner capable of helping them tackle skills shortages and unearthing ‘hard to reach’ talent in tight timeframes. Our team of consultants have over 40 years of combined experience in the software space, ensuring clients can benefit from an extensive candidate network and a uniquely consultative approach. To disrupt markets and deliver competitive advantage it’s essential to invest in talent and partner with an agency capable of bridging the skills gap to provide you with access to the latest skillsets from functional languages, open source technologies all the way through to artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Here's why clients typically engage with our Software Engineering & Architecture practice:

  • You are feeling the pain of skills shortages as internal demand outweighs supply.
  • You find yourself working with and managing lots of recruitment agencies that aren’t adding value.
  • You are hiring for a niche skillset relating to a new application or framework.
  • You are fed up with wasting time sifting through multiple resumes that miss your brief.
  • You need help to tap into the passive market as you don’t have the network in specialist areas.
  • You need help to understand salary benchmarks and the competitive landscape in the hunt for key skills.
