“Alcor has successfully hired 15 R&D professionals in one year. The team’s project management is excellent, with prompt delivery, transparent relationships, and responsiveness to feedback. They consistently meet expectations, answer all the client’s questions, and communicate professionally.

Ultimately, the quality of what we produce in our R&D center depends on the people we hire and the culture we create. Alcor has never led us astray in that regard.

It’s extremely important to US companies to be confident as to legal structures and operational comfort for doing business in a foreign country. Since Alcor specializes exclusively in IT and possesses the best practices, we are happy to launch our own branded R&D center with their full cycle of Recruiting & Compliance Support.

Thanks for helping us make our dreams come true! We are very excited to have our own R&D presence in Eastern Europe with your offshore recruitment services!

“We have built a full stack engineering team in 1.5 months. We had multilple candidates that we considered for each position. 95% of candidates presented by Alcor’s recruitment team passed the resume review. And ongoing team management is easy and effortless. They’ve solved every problem we’ve faced, even crazy things like buying certified hardware in the middle of nowhere on Bali and ship it to EU :)”

Our cases:

When it was time to expand their development team abroad, the company chose to hire professional Eastern European developers via a recruiting agency.
30 experienced developers for Sift in Eastern Europe
After a series of successful hires, Alcor suggested IT recruiting services in Poland. Our recruitment team closed the positions of Head of R&D, Front End Developer, and Back End Developer with rare tech stacks.
Dotmatics decided to set up a new software team in Eastern Europe and move from the IT outsourcing model to oversee the development of its products. The client found sufficient assistance from Alcor as an experienced IT hiring agency in Poland.
Top-notch IT recruitment for Dotmatics in Eastern Europe
As a result of our cooperation, Dotmatics obtained 24 IT professionals on board in just 12 months, plus received administrative support.
When Ledger wanted to create a team of 20 QA engineers in Eastern Europe, they needed stellar IT recruitment and back-office management. Even though they already had some employees in Eastern Europe, the other part of their team was located in Paris. Thus, Ledger was looking for an experienced Eastern European provider that could also ensure legal compliance, handle taxes, protect their IP rights, and perform other functions.
Professional IT recruitment and legal compliance for Ledger
Ledger reached out for assistance to the Alcor agency and we started our collaboration by engaging 10 Alcor tech researchers and recruiters. On top of QA recruitment, we also appointed our finance managers and lawyers with IT law expertise to help Ledger abide by Eastern European and French laws and deliver other operational functions.
Gotransverse needed to set up a remote full-stack development team and manage its operations in three EU countries.
Hiring a full-stack engineering team for Gotransverse
Alcor acted not only as an IT recruiting company in Poland, but also as an EoR provider. We helped the client hire 6 skilled software developers and after that provided employment services along with constant payroll & legal support.
