How we used AI to hire hundreds of tech roles in nine days

The challenge

Our customer faced challenges filling their technical roles quickly. Advanced skillsets, particularly in the IT and engineering field, were hard to find and qualify in today’s talent scare market. The customer did not have proper skill assessments processes in place to validate candidate skills or identity. They needed a technology solution to assess the candidate’s capabilities and ensure applicant accuracy.

How we helped

Pontoon’s close partnership with the tech vendor’s team allowed us to create a customised, customer-specific dashboard for our MSP team. Our customers’ openings could be filled much more quickly with the dashboard by ensuring all submitted candidates met the role requirements.

Once implemented, the assessment tool:

  • Created 25-30 assessments specific to our customer’s roles
  • Used eye-tracking software to ensure test integrity
  • Qualified talent through a scoring system
  • Validated candidate identity
  • Automatically ruled in/ruled out candidates
  • Performed quality assurance through live-video options
Impact

Our customer, a financial institution, struggled to qualify talent for roles with advanced skillsets, so Pontoon implemented an assessment tool to assist. This tool made it easy to quickly qualify and assess top talent, which helped hire candidates faster than the competition. We filled 400 open full-stack engineering roles within six weeks, and 175 java developers were hired within nine days.
