Our Approach

Step 1: Thorough intake

To be sure that we can help you in the best way it is important to first know some more about where you are coming from and where your career currently stands. At first we will go through your career together to get a good insight in your experience, specific knowledge, skills and background. At CodeGuild we further try to understand you even better by also looking at the reasons why you made certain career steps. We also give you direct feedback on your CV so are sure you highlight the right skills that are sought out most in the market within your niche.

Step 2: Where are you looking to grow your career?

At this point we thoroughly discuss your next career step. We look at things like technology, company culture, work/life balance, daily activities, type of organization, growth potential, location, travelling time and training needs. Now we can think with you to advise you best on how to grow your career in the direction that you are looking for. When we have a clear indication of your skills, abilities and wishes we can open the CodeGuild network to you. This means that we can tell you everything about your up to date possibilities near where you live (or if wanted further).

Step 3: How do we make the difference together?

Finding the best job for you is something we do together. In our ten years of experience in the Dutch software development and -engineering market we have mapped the entire playing field. This has enabled us to constantly stay ahead of the most recent career chances. You have the skills and experience, we the network and job application experience. This is how we make the difference together.

Step 4: How will you be guided?

Of course you don’t apply for jobs every day. That is why we guide you intensely during your job application interview(s). We make sure we help our client see your strongest skills and will give you all the information you need about their company, the position and your chances. More than you could ever find by just looking at their website and/or reading their job description. This is why you straight away have an advantage over other candidates and makes sure you are at your best during the interviews. Every interview process has different stages, all with other goals. To boost your success we will offer you the right information for every step. From first interview until the contract signing.

Step 5: Congratulations!

Congratulations with your next job! When using CodeGuild you will always be employed by our employers, we are an intermediary company. Up until your start date and during your trial period we will remain in touch and will always be available to offer assistance.

I was looking for a role as a senior Scala developer in Amsterdam/Utrecht region.I was specifically looking to apply for one company through CodeGuild, but in the initial interview they also presented me with a couple of other options for companies which would be a good fit for me.They were very friendly, helpful and supportive, without being pushy. There was targeted help with prep for the interviews/assessments which was specific to each company, and they enabled me to give the best account for myself (definitely better than if I'd been preparing on my own).In the end I accepted an offer from one of the companies they presented me with instead of the original company I had in mind. It's an exciting challenge I'm looking forward to starting, and I never would have heard of the opportunity without CodeGuild.Can wholeheartedly recommend!

I am Golang software engineer from Brazil. For a significant amount of time, I was looking for a big step in my career, I wanted to find a "perfect" company in terms of challenges, and I wanted to move to Amsterdam. However, I was extremely pessimistic about how hard it would be for me to find such a position. Finally, when I was about to give up, I found Sven from CodeGuild, an extraordinarily communicative and supportive guy. Not only did he help me to find good companies, but he also shared his experiences and encouraged me to keep trying. Well, I landed a job within two months!His work didn't stop there. He was also willing to help me relocate and adjust to Dutch society. I can't recommend this guy enough, a truly exceptional professional.

Codeguild helped me find a Senior Software Developer role in Amsterdam.They operate like a chess player that understands the game and the business.It’s all about making the right move and not regretting it. If you, the candidate, or if you, the company, found a good opportunity then the guild helps you to find a better one.You get to talk about your limitations, your best qualities and about what you’re really looking for. They have a sensor that gets activated during conversations and you get immediate suggestions if anything would be a wrong fit.Roy, Serge and Robert are trained members who understand the technical domain, who know - like a coach - what questions to ask and when. The collaboration with them is a journey that walks through all aspects of a job and you get the right questions at the right moments.

I struggled for a while filtering through all the recruiters that were there to help me with nothing. But then I discovered CodeGuild and a guy named Roy. He tries to understand what is your desire for the next step in your career and find the best opportunity. He guides you through the whole interview process and is there for you to answer all of your questions.Many thanks to Roy Schaper and CodeGuild for being professional and accurate!

I would highly recommend CodeGuild to anyone who is looking for interesting opportunities.Their email about vacancies are very detailed and gives you a very good picture of what the actual role is about.I would like to thank Roy Schaper for the incredible support through out the process. Unlike other recruiters, Roy followed up with me before and after each round of interview. He is very responsive and guided me with valuable tips for the entire process.He had a clear understanding of what the role demands and what the employers were looking for, this is a rare trait I see in most recruiters.If you are on a job hunt or looking for interesting role, don't hesitate to collaborate with them.
