We are successful when you are – Anastasia Karnaokov, Founder at Esti

WHY DID YOU START ESTI DEVELOPERS?

To make recruitment fun again. Recruitment is all about the human factor. Instead of chasing people to make a career change, we connect on a personal level, by giving international IT professionals a home away from home.

WHY IT PROFESSIONALS CHOOSE ESTI?

Esti is more than staffing alone. We provide relocation guidance, not only in the physical manner: packing your bags and renting a new home in a different country. We believe that it is also a change in mind set and lifestyle. So, we give the ins and outs in how to feel comfortable in a new reality. Hired candidates receive an Esti bike to feel part of the Dutch biking culture straight away. We also understand that work alone doesn’t make a person fully happy. Having friends and meeting like-minded are key to feel connected. We support the IT professionals by organising meet-ups and barbecues for them to meet others and stay part of the Esti network.

WHY IS ESTI A TRUSTED ADVISOR?

Esti aims to create a longstanding relationship with the candidates. We talk with everyone who uploads their CV, even if we don’t have an immediate job opening available. The perfect match is not only about meeting 100% of the requirements but most of all about change, progress and new experiences. Esti focusses on the personal motivation and ambition of each professional. It is important to us to have a clear understanding of the candidate and see if a start-up, SME or a corporate is a match. We believe that company culture is an important factor to success. Furthermore, we are convinced that sharing knowledge inspires and provokes feedback, therefore we publish articles and interviews to stay connected to our candidates and clients.

 

WHY DO COMPANIES PARTNER UP WITH ESTI?

We are more than staffing alone. Obviously, our procedures are thorough with pretested qualifications and multiple talks to see if there is a company fit. Optionally we provide our clients an evaluation of the quality and standard of work of the candidate with regular intervals for a period of six months. But what really sets us apart is that we deliver our clients marketing tools, like tailor made content and special events. In a market where there are plenty of opportunities presented to IT professionals, you need to stand out. Companies need to meet their future employees outside of their own offices. We make this happen.


WHY DOES ESTI PROMOTE AMSTERDAM?

Promoting Amsterdam is promoting the Netherlands. For most internationals when you talk about the Netherlands, it doesn’t immediately ring a bell. Amsterdam is known worldwide. Our clients are located all over the country, and an one hour drive is not much for an international. So, you could say Amsterdam is representing the tiny country of the Netherlands. Second reason that we are promoting Amsterdam is the war on talent that is going on. To stay on top of the game we need to attract gifted professionals. Esti makes a small contribution to reach this goal.
