IT staff recruitment: how to find a Senior Java Developer for an international company in 4 days?

Lead IT recruiter at Lucky Hunter
We often say that IT recruiting loves speed, and a recent example perfectly illustrates this point. Our lead IT recruiter, Valeriya, filled an urgent CloudLinux job opening in record time — she found a senior Java developer in just four days.

Task and Difficulties

Our regular client CloudLinux requested to fill an urgent Java developer position — a specialist was needed yesterday. The company developed complex technical products, like security services and kernel development, and needed to expand the team.

In addition to the deadlines, the position also had several essential requirements:
  • 1
    The company urgently opened offices in several European countries, and they needed a candidate who was willing to relocate to Montenegro.
  • 2
    Since the company required the employee right away, they had only a couple of days to make a decision about moving and then quickly relocate to Montenegro.
  • 3
    The role required extensive experience in Java development, with strong English skills being an advantage.

How We've Filled the Vacancy

Despite relocation was a necessary requirement, the client offered competitive conditions: a good relocation package, generous bonuses, and the opportunity to work on high-tech products at the renowned international company.

Valeriya is one of Lucky Hunter’s record holders for fast placements: we promptly discussed the position with the client and started searching.
To increase the efficiency of the recruitment processes, the client simplified the selection stages as much as possible, leaving only a technical interview.
We found the perfect candidate in our database: he had an impressive professional background, including experience with large international IT companies. On top of that, he was keen to move and available to start at short notice. The client made a job offer, and the collaboration began productively.

Since the candidate had many questions about the legal side of relocating to Montenegro (tax system, work permits, etc.), the client stayed in close contact with him. However, providing specific answers was challenging at times. The client was just setting up their office, and building legal processes from scratch meant they were figuring things out alongside the candidate.

Nevertheless, the company was interested in working with the candidate and ensured maximum transparency throughout the process. If finding the answer to any of the candidate’s requests took time, the client would clarify the information and return to the specialist with an answer.
The company also tried to make the relocation process as smooth as possible: the candidate got a relocation bonus — a fixed dollar amount to cover moving expenses, like plane tickets for the candidate and his family and apartment rent.
The IT specialist moved to Montenegro with his family and successfully joined the company.


In total, we processed over 33 CVs, sent 32 letters and conducted interviews with 7 candidates. The client ultimately made an offer to one of the finalists.

Key Success Factors

  • Speed
    Recognising the urgency, Valeriya focused her efforts on sourcing suitable candidates. As a result, we found highly qualified IT specialists interested in relocation opportunities. Moreover, they were motivated by the prospect of a quick start.

    The client and our team understood that we were pursuing a common goal — the quick hiring of an IT specialist.
