At the Collision 2023 conference, which occurred from June 27 to 29, we not only gathered the most significant tech industry trends but also interacted with representatives from intriguing startups and companies at their stands. One of them was Ilya Brotzky, CEO at VanHack. Check out the video to learn more.
VanHack is a platform that unites top-notch developers, digital marketing specialists, designers, and other professionals who are interested in relocating and beginning work with new companies. Currently, it boasts over 370,000 users from 100 countries across the globe.
Ilya established VanHack around 10 years ago. At that time, he visited Brazil and encountered numerous talented developers who had limited English proficiency and were uncertain about how to market themselves to companies. He resolved to assist them, which set the groundwork for the platform that remains highly popular today.
Following the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies chose to maintain a remote work model, leading to an active recruitment of developers and other professionals from various countries. They source these professionals from different platforms, but VanHack simplifies this process significantly by offering features such as video interviews and English language tests.
Easy access to talent from different corners of the world has become another important recent trend, which was discussed several times during Collision 2023. Ilya believes that Canada may soon introduce a visa for digital nomads who earn money remotely in other countries.
Ilya also commented on generative AI, a topic everyone is talking about today. He believes that such technologies will not replace developers or other professionals but will certainly help make their work more efficient. The most talented specialists can always be found on VanHack.
