Integrify provided Digia with 5 junior developers for their customer projects

Integrify partnered with Digia to provide their team with five junior developers that graduated from one of Integrify’s Full Stack programs. 

Digia is a software and service company that combines technological possibilities and human capabilities to build intelligent business, society and a sustainable future. Digia's roots are in Finland and the company operates within the Nordic region, as well as the Netherlands. Digia is building a world in which digitalization makes a difference – together with their customers and partners.

Digia was looking to recruit several developers for multiple various projects and Integrify was happy to source the right candidates for them through our Try & Hire model. This recruitment model provides companies with maximum flexibility when it comes to the tech talent. First, Integrify handpicks just 5% of all applicants to our Full Stack programs. Then, we train and rigorously test them for the next 4-5 months, identifying the top developers and preparing them for real-life projects. Finally, we match them with companies based on their team’s unique needs, tech stack, and other requirements.

The challenge

  • Software developers often need to start working in customer projects right away
  • Developers for Digia’s projects need to be hardworking, flexible, and be able to learn fast
  • Time and resources are of the essence, especially when it comes to testing, validating and choosing the best junior candidates

The solution

  • Integrify provides a pool of most recent graduates who are ready to join a company as soon as the following week
  • All our developers have higher education background, up to 2 years of work experience, and a strong desire to learn - which are both prerequisites to be accepted into the programs
  • We handpick and train 5% of the most talented highly educated Software Developers and Data Experts through our advanced programs
  • We have a rigorous selection process accepting only the top 5% into the programs and testing the best candidates continuously throughout the studies

Why did Digia partner with Integrify?

We talked with Digia's Senior Project Manager, Marko Tuuminen who shared his experience collaborating with Integrify and working with our developers, stating “Our co-operation has been productive and efficient. Integrify's training program has been strong and focused on areas that we value and demand from our own developers, too. Collaborating with Integrify has saved much of our valuable time and resources as the developers provided by Integrify were ready to start in customer projects right away.”

He adds that “All developers have proven to be hardworking, fast learners and have fitted nicely into our teams at Digia. We look forward to working with Integrify as well in the future!”
