London-based tech business SmartXpo has announced a new partnership with Global Talent Advantage, to help launch a new development hub in Kiev, Ukraine.
SmartXpo uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to create event technology. In 2018, it launched a price-setting tool that enables organisers to recapture billions of dollars of revenue lost through value leakage.
The company is now searching for specialist developers and data scientists, and hopes its partnership with GTA will allow them to leapfrog Google, Amazon and Facebook in the search for employees with specialised tech skills.
The deal allows SmartXpo to hand-pick and manage staff from a roster of 52,000 high-end developers.
Chris Witheridge, CTO of SmartXpo, commented: “London is a wonderful base for a high growth tech venture, however the competition for talent has become more intense than ever.
“That is why we had to launch our own development hub in Kiev, and believe that the Extended Team solution put in place by Global Talent Advantage will give us a critical competitive edge as we continue to focus on growth and disruption.”
The Extended Team was launched for SmartXpo by Global Talent Advantage in a flexible ‘asset-lite’ way, which is designed to ensure speed, create a highly-attractive work environment for local talent and dramatically reduce capital outlays associated with a full London based in-house team.
It enables high-growth tech businesses to recruit and manage their team directly while leveraging Global Talent Advantage to carry the cost of payroll, facilities and training. SmartXpo can now focus on their core mission without depleting precious capital or agility.
