Working directly with the CTO, commercial terms for the project were agreed and a plan put in place. The CTO himself is based in San Jose, California but originally from the UK, and to maintain consistent communication Jurupa spoke on a weekly basis with him. It was agreed that he would visit the UK at least once every 6 weeks and coordinate calls and schedule interviews around dates of visits.
Given the highly specific requirements emanating from the somewhat niche nature of the TV advertising market, it was important for Jurupa to pay close attention to the (technical) competency levels of the candidates we screened.
In order to ensure that they met the high standards required, Jurupa agreed with Cadent’s CTO to put in place a series of technical screening questions to which we would require a high pass rate in order to confidently submit those candidates. This proved highly effective in terms of qualification and time spent interviewing, ultimately leading to an impressive conversation rate.
