IT recruitment and legal compliance for Ledger

Ledger is a software product company from France that develops hardware wallets for managing cryptocurrencies and NFTs. Ledger wallets enable you to purchase, store, swap, grow, and keep your crypto assets secure through various technologies, such as sensor data, the Internet of Things, ICOs, etc. The company has clients in over 200 countries and already sold more than 3 million wallets. In 2021, Ledger received $380 million from 10T Holdings and became a French unicorn company.

Issue

In 2020, Ledger decided to create their own development hub in Eastern Europe and hire 20 QA engineers there. At that time, our client had several people in their Eastern European team who were working in a co-working space while the rest of the team was in Paris. In order to expand, Ledger needed both effective tech recruitment and full legal compliance, including tax management, labor law assistance, IP rights protection, employment contract support, and other functions by experienced IT lawyers.

At this point, Ledger realized that they needed the assistance of a professional recruitment and operational services provider that specializes in hiring developers in Eastern European countries, thus reached out to Alcor.

Solution

In order to achieve all IT recruitment goals of Ledger, we engaged our 10 talented IT researchers and recruiters to hire the best QA specialists. What is more, our legal and finance specialists helped our client to comply with Eastern European and French legislation, as well as be transparent in all operations without having to register their legal entity in Eastern Europe.

Even though the management team of Ledger’s product was in Paris, we successfully communicated with them remotely. For faster recruitment, our team suggested that Ledger conduct all the recruitment stages in one day in our office. Their managers from France decided to come to Eastern Europe and as a result, together we interviewed 5 select candidates and made an offer to a QA Manager that same day.

At the present time, our team keeps working with Ledger and hiring professional developers for them.
