Tripling practio's development team in Lisbon

When we started working with Practio they were about 3 developers in a co-working space near our office. Since they didn’t have a recruitment team, they lacked the reach to be able to hire more people.

Fullstack JS

Practio was already present in 3 european cities: Copenhagen, Liverpool and Lisbon. Half of the developers were located in Copenhagen and the team was to be managed as one, with the new Lisbon tech hub.

We tripled Practio’s development team, hiring 9 developers with a sniper approach.

Back in 2017 our market wasn’t ripe with Fullstack Developers with previous experience in Fullstack JS. Most candidates came from .Net, Kotlin, Ruby and Go backgrounds and proved to be great FS Software Engineers.

Here's the Challenge

When we started working with Practio they were 3 developers in a co-working space near our office. From the beginning we felt a fantastic energy with the team and that they were eager to do more. But since they didn’t have a recruitment team, they lacked the reach to be able to hire more people effectively.

Overcoming the tech stack challenge

Back in 2017, when we started working with Practio, our market wasn’t ripe with Fullstack developers with previous experience in Fullstack JS. As such, we had to implement our first internal process to hire developers with tech agnostic mindset and willing to learn JS, while they would still have to deal with legacy PHP code.

We approached the market with a “sniper” mindset, finding the best candidates who were motivated to learn JS. Most who eventually joined came from .NET, Kotlin, Ruby and Go backgrounds and proved to be great Fullstack JS software engineers.

Practio Team

Practio

Turning healthcare a little bit more practical.

The mission of Practio was quite simple and, at the same time, not easy at all: make healthcare accessible to everyone. With digital technology, Practio turned local pharmacies into healthcare center so they could offer simple healthcare services without ever forgetting your safety.

In 2023, Practio was sold to Carelink, one of the largest and most successful Danish temporary staffing agency providers in the healthcare sector.
