Frequently asked questionsHow do is the tech recruiter matched to my open position?
What are the criteria for being considered an expert tech recruiter?
We employ a meticulous matching process to connect the most suitable tech recruiter to your open position. The matching algorithm considers various factors, including the recruiter's experience, availability, and estimated efficiency for the specific job requirements. Similar to how ride-sharing platforms match drivers based on proximity and availability, Laila strives to identify the recruiter who possesses the relevant expertise, is readily available, and is best equipped to handle the job effectively.
Are there any contingency fees due after hiring a candidate?
To be considered an expert tech recruiter within Laila's network, recruiters must demonstrate a strong track record of successfully sourcing and placing candidates in technical roles. They undergo a rigorous vetting process, evaluating their expertise, industry knowledge, and previous experience in technical recruitment. Laila ensures that the recruiters possess the necessary skills to accurately assess candidates' technical abilities, bridging the gap between recruiting and engineering expertise.
Are there additional costs if I choose to hire more than one interviewed candidate?
No, Laila does not charge any contingency fees. Our fee structure is straightforward: you pay for the number of qualified interviews you wish to conduct, with a minimum requirement of 5 interviews per job. Our approach allows you the freedom to choose and hire as many candidates as you deem fit from the pool of interviewed candidates without incurring any additional costs.
Do I need to commit for multiple months or a certain number of positions?
