3rd October 2019
A disruptive new online recruitment platform service was launched today by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys TD targeting the global technology contractor industry. Techfynder is the first dedicated platform for businesses to connect directly with IT professional contractors on a global scale. Developed by CEO and founder of Test Triangle, Praveen Madire, the new service is expected to result in 50 new jobs at the Dublin-based company over the next two years. Plans for global expansion are in place, starting immediately in Ireland, UK and Germany followed by the United States in January 2020.
The new Techfynder digital product is a free service for IT contractors to register and a subscription-based service for companies that provides immediate results from exact skills, experience, rates and real time availability to work at their client locations. The development of TechFynder has been supported by Enterprise Ireland through R&D funding.
Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, said: “I am delighted to launch Techfynder, Test Triangle’s new online recruitment platform which connects employers in the IT sector and qualified IT contractors for work on specific projects worldwide. This will also result in the expansion of the company with 50 new jobs to be created over the next two years at home in Ireland. R&D has been central to the creation of this new platform and I am very pleased that the Government, through Enterprise Ireland, has been able to support the company through its R&D initiatives. This is a further boost to Ireland’s booming indigenous tech sector, and I wish the company all the best in the exciting period ahead as they build scale and expand their reach in new international markets”
Test Triangle CEO, Praveen Madire said: “I am from a technology background myself, so I knew the frustration for IT professionals as well as the challenges involved in the recruitment industry trying to accommodate clients with great candidates without having to spend their budget”
The development of the digital solution commenced in November 2018 after Praveen spoke with European industry leaders in technology about a way to let businesses connect directly with contractors but the difference was that everything would be contained in one platform - uploading profiles, job postings, e-signature contracts and direct interviewing and communication. The research and analysis carried out showed a gap in the market to provide specific talent with opportunity in the global technology contractor marketplace but most importantly came the realisation of the costs and time involved for companies that can haemorrhage budgets and productivity. The point of difference for contractors is that they can also plan their contracts in advance without having to register on numerous job portals, it is an efficient way for professionals to manage their future.
Business and communities can now feel they have an alternative when looking to hire IT contractors globally who meet their requirements and budget.
Executive Director of Global Business Development in Enterprise Ireland, Kevin Sherry added: “As a result of investment in R&D, Test Triangle is now in a position to offer a unique and innovative service which saves money and provides better value to the company’s clients. At Enterprise Ireland, we know that investment in R&D is critical across all sectors to maintain competitiveness and to drive export growth. Test Triangle has experienced strong progress over the last number of years and Enterprise Ireland looks forward to working with Praveen and the team to continue to support their growth ambitions as they further expand their reach in global markets, strengthening their customer base internationally and continuing to create jobs here in Ireland.”
