This Fortune 500 financial services corporation was admittedly filling vacancies with “warm bodies” instead of with employing talent who could have a long-term future with the company. They hired a high volume of H1B and Green Card holders, some of which did not fit their culture very well. This initial strategy was not serving the business needs. This client wanted to staff its team with consultants who had the potential to convert to full-time employment (which is difficult for H1B and Green Card holders to do). To complicate things, the financial services enterprise was also experiencing quality issues. At times, they were victims of the “bait & switch” (where the person they phone interviewed and hired was not the person that showed up for work).

Enter Optomi. Our understanding of the client’s tech needs as well as our cultural synergies made us the ideal partner. Optomi “earned the right” to do business with this financial services client by sourcing two, very hard to find positions, Test Data Masking Manager and a Test Data Masking Analyst. Both required very specific expertise using a niche IBM tooled called InfoSphere Optim in addition to technical expertise in a wide variety of databases to include SQL, Oracle, DB2 and NoSQL. Optomi’s initial success prompted referral upon referral. After staffing their projects with the specialists they needed, the client’s projects were completed flawlessly and on deadline. Their business continues to expand… launching new divisions which they have engaged Optomi for support on.

Testimonial

A critical, immediate need was identified for a high-profile, can’t fail, strategic project. The need was for multiple disciplines
with a quick boots on the ground and run, not walk requirement. Our Optomi partners took immediate action and filled the
bill. The time from the day requirements were presented to presentation of first candidates was less than 5 days. Better than
timing was candidate fit. Our Optomi team worked with our corporate staffing team and ensured an efficient and effective on-
boarding. This all started with an impromptu call to our Optomi partners.” –Wayland L, Vice President & Project Leader
