Service Hiring Penguin

WHY? Providing highly skilled, communicative IT professionals to help our clients build customized products.

HOW? We deliver a premium service to our IT professionals, so they can do the same for our clients.

WHAT? Providing highly skilled, communicative IT professionals to help our clients build customised products.

“In 2016, the company I was leading needed a larger software development team to grow. However, the Dutch market encountered a shortage of highly skilled developers, thus creating a problem and affecting the organization’s output.
At the time, an acquaintance was leading a team of Portuguese developers in Lisbon and was content with their skills, experience, and positive work attitude. Therefore, as a trial, I decided to start hiring developers in Portugal; within one year, we were able to build a complete team. It was made clear how much the quality of code, documentation, and speed of development helped the organization expand and flourish in the market.

Penguin Formula derived from this experience.

With knowledge of the Dutch IT market, I (with the help of an investor) conceived a plan: to become a leading player in Europe. Set with the ambition to grow big and maintain the reason for its existence: quality assurance.

However, we soon realized that the Portuguese market was relatively small. And in order to obtain our goals and to provide for the needs of the Northern European market, we needed to expand the recruitment outside of Portugal. This is when we began recruiting in South America (mainly in Brazil).

We were pleased to see that Brazilian software developers were as skilled and communicative as their Portuguese counterparts. Which, in the vision of Penguin Formula, is a must-have in order to provide high-quality software delivery.

Resulting in both our clients and developers being able to focus on what they do best: their core business.”
