3How does the Jaguar28 process work?
Everything starts with your registration: you will be asked to share information about your professional background, your availability (both in terms of location and time) and your desired salary. One of our Talent Buddies will then contact you to schedule a quick call: it is the quickest way to understand together if Jaguar28 can actually meet your needs. If this is the case (we hope so!), we will notify all the companies that are looking for skills like yours and are able to offer the salary you wish.
Companies will start to send you interviews offers by sharing details about salaries, technologies and growth opportunities: you are free to accept, decline or ask for clarification.
The recruitment process follows the traditional path, with one or more interviews with HRs and IT managers from the company. During these steps, a dedicated Talent Buddy will be at your disposal for preparing the interviews and negotiating the final offer.
4What is a Talent Buddy?
By joining us, you will be welcomed by your personal Talent Buddy: a well trained professional that will help you to maximize your experience on Jaguar28. The Talent Buddy will support you throughout the whole recruiting process, with free personal coaching for preparing the interviews.
They come from different backgrounds (HR, tech, startups, ...) but share a common understanding of the current issues of the job market. Feel free to ask for advice also once you started in your new company!
5What can I do when I receive an interview offer?
On Jaguar28 you will be able to see the most relevant details about the job opportunity up front: name of the company, location, salary, bonus, technological stack, projects you will cover, growth opportunities. There is no better way to match the needs of a company with yours.
If you are interested, you can accept the request and start the recruiting process: your Talent Buddy or an HR manager from the company will contact you to schedule the first step. If there is no way you would be interested, you can just decline the request. This won't harm your experience on Jaguar28 but we will ask you to share the reasons for your refusal so that you can help both us and the company to improve. Third option: most of the aspects meet your requirements but you would like to discuss some additional details (e.g. relocation bonus). In this case, you are welcome to ask for a clarification before accepting or declining the request.
Remember: in every scenario, you can count on your Talent Buddy.
6Do you offer referral and/or signing bonus?
Of course we do! If a friend you have invited changes job thanks to Jaguar28, you will receive a 500€ Amazon Gift Card at the end of his/her probation period. Also, when YOU change job thanks to Jaguar28 you will eligible to receive a special gift at the end of your probation period: this could be tickets for important conferences or technological gadgets you can use at your new job or in your free time.
7My current company uses Jaguar28. Will they be able to see my profile?
No, they won't. The initial call with your Talent Buddy has also this goal: you will be asked about your current company so that we can hide your profile to them if you are accepted on the platform. In the same way, you are free to suggest us the names of other companies that you want to avoid.
8I am not actively looking for a new job. Why should I join Jaguar28?
Jaguar28 is specifically designed to help passive talents, i.e. those professionals that are not actively looking for a new job but are open to listening to new opportunities. We completely understand the pain of browsing job boards, reading copy-pasted ads and finding no useful details on the job: now, with our reverse approach, you can easily check and understand what opportunities actually interest you.
In case of major issues that prevent you from changing job in the short term, you are still welcome to join Jaguar28: it is a great way to receive regular updates on the job market and be ahead of the competition when you will finally decide for a change (and, in the meanwhile, you can invite your contacts for your referral bonus!).
In both cases, you can always contact your Talent Buddy to discuss your situation in private: tech professionals love us also because we provide great advice on the day-by-day working life even when they are not interested in a new job.
9I am a freelance professional. What can Jaguar28 offer me?
Unfortunately, we don't cover freelance jobs. However, if you are considering a transition to full-time roles, Jaguar28 might be your solution: we helped many freelancers and we are not worried to share the pros and the cons of this choice.
10Why is Jaguar28 so focused on local dev communities?
It may seem a contradiction, but we understood that offline connections and activities are the best way to engage tech professionals. For this reason we support local user groups and help our users to connect with awesome trainers, schools and bootcamps to develop new skills.
