The project

Long-term collaboration on a wide variety of roles throughout different departments and with different stakeholders. The focus was on the engineering and product roles for the Tallinn office. We were searching for the candidates locally as well as for the relocation to Estonia.

Since we were looking for some rare candidates, such as mobile or Python engineers, we often used GitHub to source for Paxful’s roles.
