Take the Survey, win stuff, and help us make recruitment & hiring in Berlin’s tech more meaningful

Take the Survey: bit.ly/CaissaSurvey2019

Hey there!

We at Caissa would like to invite all Berlin-based developers, engineers and tech professionals to take our annual survey (till 10th June, 23:59 CET).

With this questionnaire, we’d like you to share your experience with recruiters in Berlin and what your hiring process with Berlin’s tech companies was like.

The findings will help Berlin-based companies to improve their hiring practices, which, in turn, will ensure a smoother recruitment experience next time you are looking to make a career move.

And we can’t emphasize it enough: every single response matters!
