C-level in the tech industry is represented by the high-ranking executive titles in the company hierarchy, such as CTOs, CIOs, VP of Engineering and others. They are responsible for the company's strategy and are in charge of making high-stake decisions. It is a real challenge to hire such specialists as they are mostly employed, they receive high salaries with bonuses and a huge compensation package, and usually do not tend to change employers.
The same challenges can be faced when closing positions of rare specialists by in-house forces, for example, searching for Dev Rel Managers, DevOps Architects, Senior ML-Engineers and others. Recruitment agencies have their own pool of IT talents in tech areas ranging from mobile application development to software products for the space industry. Even if the required specialist is not looking for a new job at the specific moment, the agency gets in contact with him, uses effective motivation for him to join the client’s company and makes him lure him to the customer's company.
