Hiring top engineers is difficult, as they are in demand and in short supply. Synthesia's Head of Talent wanted to introduce technology that would help them hire the best engineers on the market, without affecting the productivity and time of their existing engineers.
Prior to the partnership with Screenloop, screening calls and first-stage interviews could be filled with a mixed calibre of engineering talent. A lack of data and insights into what great looked like made improvements slow and difficult to implement. Existing engineers spent a lot of time interviewing candidates who never hit the hiring bar.
