The war in Ukraine is driving Israeli tech companies to look for alternatives to their Ukrainian developers. Israeli E-commerce platform developer Webiz has launched a new platform to help companies efficiently search suitable candidates for development positions through advanced filtering algorithms and matching mechanisms in Armenia and in Georgia.
The new platform carries out AI-based matching of the characteristics, skills, and preferences of Webiz’s talents with the requirements of the companies. Every developer fills out a detailed personal profile that includes professional certification, experience, skills, salary expectations and more. The companies also open an account and apply the AI-based filter mechanisms, which show them suitable candidates with a high degree of accuracy. The suitable candidates will be invited to video interviews on the platform.
Webiz developed a practical training program for high-tech professions on the basis of an Israeli syllabus. In collaboration with the Business and Technology University in Tbilisi, Georgia, outstanding students take a six-month course in various disciplines: programming in a range of languages, including React, Node js, Devops QA and UI/UX followed by certification tests.
According to company data, it has to date recruited and trained more than 200 developers who have joined 25 Israeli companies. The company plans to recruit 200 more developers in 2022 and 1,000 in the coming years. Webiz recently expanded its operations to Armenia, where it is recruiting and training hundreds of developers using the model that it has applied in Georgia.
"Manual processes of searching, filtering, and recruiting candidates take too long, are not accurate enough, and do not suit the dynamic pace of the high-tech industry,” said Eyal Bar Oz, co-founder and CEO of Webiz. “The new portal will shorten these processes by about 80%, and in effect even more, because precise matching will prevent recruitment processes might not be realized.”
