CleanTech Recruitment Testimonials

Rock-Star Software Engineers: Worth Their Weight in Gold?

Netflix CEO, Reed Hastings, has described his hiring rules as following the ‘rock-star principle’: paying a significantly higher salary to hire one rock-star software engineer, than hiring 10 less outstanding engineers.

Hastings says: “In the first few years of Netflix, we were growing fast and needed to hire more software engineers. With my new understanding that high talent density would be the engine of our success, we focused on finding the top performers in the market.

The Future for Smart Cities

With a global population explosion underway and increasing numbers of people migrating to urban centres, some argue that cities will have to get smarter or face collapse.  Which is why the “smart city” is already a fast booming marketplace comprising a vast array of complex elements.

Remote Working: Coronavirus Could Cause a Permanent Shift to Home Working

The Coronavirus pandemic could result in the permanent move to remote working for many people, as companies are forced to encourage home working to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

After being forced to set-up a home office and get used to using cloud remote working tools, employees will be reluctant to return to commuting to the office 5 days a week and asking if they need to do this. This might be an opportunity for huge change in the way we work.
