From Malta to the World: FRVR had already established in London, Copenhagen. 2020 marks the year of the opening of the Tech Center in Portugal.

FRVR didn’t have any prior operations in Portugal, but we managed to pitch & hire 8 Tech Engineers.

We focused on two main tech profiles: Senior Developers & QA Game Testers.

Here's the Challenge

Famously know as a game development company, FRVR’s international growth made them an obvious attraction for talent who seek experience in a disruptive international startup.

Even though FRVR had to face the Covid Pandemic during their growth journey, they were fast to evolve and adapt processes to a more than ever remote culture that needed to be pitched to candidates.

Enabling an effortless growth journey

We used Damia’s market knowledge to tap into Lisbon’s Tech Talent pool and help FRVR transition from a small local Malta startup to a Lisbon based Tech company, with a significant developer base that would allow them to pave way to operational growth and future scaling. 

Attracting senior developers to a company without any prior operation in Portugal and zero market awareness can always be a challenge.

The quality bar of the engineering team was very high, mainly because the team strives under constrained development environments (CPU, RAM) and across device compatibility.

In the end, we are super proud to have been of help, finding, pitching, hiring and onboarding 8 of the best talent who were motivated to develop close to the edge and achieve optimal performance in a fast-paced startup.
