For recruitment experts and development teams seeking new team members to expand the team skills, both from a technical and mindset perspective, the traditional hiring procedure is most of the times bureaucratic and slow. Moreover, the usual hiring process in most of the companies shows little respect for applicants, making them wait weeks for an answer without further feedback about the interviews.

An Agile recruiting process should be human centric, reducing the feedback cycle from months down to a few days, simplifying the sluggish process to a couple of steps.

In an Agile recruiting environment, teams are the main stakeholders, and they should be involved in most of the related actions, from profile definition up to final hiring decision. Over and above, the complete staffing kanban should be visible and transparent throughout the company.

In this talk we will present our experiences regarding the hiring strategy of REWE digital Bulgaria. We will show you how in an aggressive IT employment market with a tremendous demand for IT professionals, REWE Digital Bulgaria has implemented a successful value stream for hiring, allowing the company to grow in a quick pace.
