Identify a Lead Engineer level candidate, ideally from the mobile applications market.

MitchelLake Consulting worked closely with the Development Manager who sought the top engineers from the mobile applications market for his team.

In addition, the role also required a candidate with specific Ruby skills and highly-technical experience with HTTP request anatomy, load balancers, session state, sharded/shared caches, XML/XSL/JSON/RSS/ATOM formats, REST & JavaScript (AJAX).

The candidate sourcing process was covered over 16 days with one candidate pushed through the technical interview process. The outcome was successful with the hire of a highly regarded Senior Ruby Developer.
