The project

Fingerprint is a US company with a fully remote engineering team. We were hiring for Golang, iOS, and JavaScript roles throughout Europe, targeting only top notch senior profiles with security and privacy knowledge or at least keen interest. Since open source contributions were also very important to have, we mainly used GitHub to source for the candidates, assessing their GitHub activity before reaching out.

Eventually we were able to fill in 2 roles, and one of our hires is an ex-Google employee.
