Project

Genemod, a venture-backed software company, is accelerating life sciences R&D by maximizing productivity in bench research and advancing the development of new medicines. Their platform facilitates collaboration among life scientists, streamlining lab operations to improve efficiency and reproducibility in pre-clinical research.

The company’s proprietary technology integrates scientific and management tools, providing scientists with a single, centralized solution for their diverse research needs. By hosting scientific tools on a user-friendly admin dashboard and leveraging data processing algorithms, Genemod optimizes workflow and project management. The platform stands out for its intuitive design, scalability, user-centric approach, modern features, and robust security measures.

Challenge

Genemod aimed to expand its software engineering team by hiring high-performing full-stack developers. These developers would collaborate closely with the leadership team to build and maintain their unified platform for life scientists. 

Genemod sought candidates with expertise in modern frontend frameworks like React, Vue.js, and AngularJS, along with backend technologies such as Django, Flask, and Node.js. They prioritized candidates with proficiency in Javascript, Typescript, and Python, as well as strong communication skills and seniority. Additionally, Genemod preferred candidates based in Latin America and prioritized a quick time-to-hire.

Facing a shortage of skilled full-stack developers and the high cost associated with hiring them, Genemod decided to partner with a remote work platform. This strategic move aimed to grow their development capabilities and gain access to a curated pool of vetted profiles.

Solution

In 2023, Genemod partnered with Index.dev as their trusted remote work solution for swiftly screening, vetting, and recruiting senior Full-Stack developers worldwide. 

From the initial meeting, Genemod representatives found that Index.dev account managers grasped their challenges, establishing a reliable and effective partnership from the outset.

Recognizing Brazil's reputation for harboring a wealth of highly-skilled full-stack engineers, Index.dev began the candidate sourcing and screening process there. Leveraging its extensive vetted talent network, Index.dev actively sought out engineers who aligned with Genemod's technical and cultural requirements.

Index.dev's matchers meticulously assess candidates' technical skills through resume evaluations, one-on-one interviews, and project reviews to ensure their proficiency and suitability for the role. Moreover, they evaluate candidates' workplace skills essential for remote work, including effective communication, proficiency in English, adaptability, accountability, and teamwork.

Everyone has been doing well. They are now trained up and have been put onto main projects. – Jin Choe, CTO at Genemod
