What can a high-tech e-Commerce company do when they need to quickly recruit more developers but are located in a city with limited IT resources? Rakuten’s subsidiary in Germany was stuck in this exact situation.
After Rakuten visited Pentalog’s delivery center in Iasi, Romania, it only took one week for the two companies to begin working together. Pentalog was able to set up a team, create a contract, and begin working with Rakuten in just 7 days.
Rakuten’s German subsidiary was faced with a recruitment challenge. They are located in Bamberg in northern Bavaria.
With a large amount of activity, the subsidiary needed a larger IT team. However, Bamberg’s limited resource of IT experts was running thin and the company needed to look elsewhere to find the talent they needed. There was not one specific problem that needed solving; rather the Rakuten team needed more talent to progress with all of their projects and activities.
In addition to needing talent, Rakuten also wanted to change their development style. They were looking for some assistance in order to make the transition to a product oriented approach to their operations.
