In the tech industry, a unique combination of specialised skills, proficiency in an "exotic" programming language, and exceptional experience can render a position rare in the market.
For instance, once we located a Senior C++ developer for a startup. This position fell under the Executive search category because the developer also needed expertise in Node.js, a skill combination considered rare in the IT market.
The rarity of a position can stem from the nature of the role itself. For instance, just a month ago, we successfully filled a vacancy for the position of DevOps Evangelist
. It is an exceptionally rare profession in the IT market, prompting us to search for specialists worldwide. In the end, we found a qualified specialist from Portugal who successfully joined our client's company.
