New York, NY (PRWEB) October 24, 2012

Finding good developers is quite a challenge for companies and there is shortage of “Head-huntable” developers in the industry who can work on exciting projects that need to be built. The launch of a one-of-a-kind recruiting service was announced by Headhuntable at a low cost of $499.99. Headhuntable is a job board/portfolio showcase site where engineers/developers can upload their portfolio/resume and source code enables them to get noticed by companies. Geared towards becoming the top site for expert engineers/developers, the recruiters at Headhuntable work one-on-one with a developer/engineer, thereby getting them “head-hunted”.

Statistics indicate that that the annual salary for senior level developers starts at $80,000 per year and can go as high as $160,000 per year. An average recruiter for developers and engineers charges a commission equivalent to 5-10 percent of the first year salary that can lies in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 for senior level developers. The cost of hiring is ridiculously expensive and companies have to spend thousands of dollars recruiting developers though most recruiters neither know the technology on a hands on level nor understand the nuances and intricacies of these technologies that they are hiring potential candidates for. More often than not, recruiters pass on existing resumes in their databases to clients by making a note of the job requirements and matching the so-called buzz words with the resume.

Currently, Headhuntable offers the only recruiting service that has developers as their entire recruitment team and unlike other job boards, they don't allow recruiters to post jobs; all jobs come direct from tech companies. Built by developers, for developers, Headhuntable is a platform where developers and engineers can follow each other, socialize with other developers, and really showcase themselves.

A representative of Headhuntable says, “We're confident in 30 days we'll be able to find you at least 3 candidates that you can interview and hire. Having firsthand experience of what it takes to build a product, applications and websites, we know how to screen developers and understand what exactly comprises a “head-huntable” developer.”

At Headhuntable, developers/engineers examine the resumes/source code and project history of potential candidates as well as their overall career as a whole to help employers make educated and wise decisions through their recommendations. Developers, in turn, feel they are the best fit for the job. A 30-day money back guarantee for companies who want to test drive the service and see results further enhances its appeal. To help companies further drill down and find great developers, Headhuntable also offers a number of innovative features such as allowing employers to have developer candidates take a programming challenge when they apply for the job.
