SkillValue, the first assessment platform with the best tech talent in Europe, launches in the UK


London, UK – 13 April 2021. SkillValue, Pentalog’s IT skills assessment, freelance and recruitment platform, has announced its launch in the UK and appointed Yan Jones as its first Sales Director in the UK. With his exceptional understanding of new technologies and client engagement, Yan joins Skill Value after having proven success in driving sales for companies such as Dwellant, Giant iTab Limited, BeaverTrison. In his new role, Yan will build the business in the UK to increase market share and revenue, and establish Skill Value as a leading player in the freelance outsourcing market.

The first assessment and sourcing platform for tech talent in the UK

As technology is evolving at an extremely fast pace and cycles of innovation shorten, companies need to stay ahead of the curve and work with highly qualified tech talent. Training their IT staff every 3 years isn’t an option anymore and the shortage of skilled candidates in the market impacts the increasing number of tech projects on the way.

To help companies overcome these challenges, Skill Value has developed an assessment platform to enable them to evaluate their (future) back-end, front-end, mobile, devops and data developers as well as other related tech profiles like scrum masters, product owners and even CTOs.

Skill Value continually updates its tests according to its clients’ HR needs after having tested more than 400,000 developers who are increasingly committed. As a result, companies can evaluate your developers on the latest technologies on the market: PHP, Angular, Node.jS, React, JavaScript, Python, Swift, etc.

With over 1,000 IT tests (quizzes & coding exercises) covering more than 160 technical skillsets, the company offers start-ups and IT consulting firms seeking the best developers a way to accelerate and safeguard hiring processes.

On top of this, with its large pool of freelancers, Skill Value helps its clients save time and money by sourcing the best tech talent. This service includes the custom selection process carried out by Skill Value’s CTOs and talent acquisition experts, hard and soft skills tests to find the best fit, and end-to-end contractual support and free freelancer replacement.

Since its creation in 2015, Skill Value has worked with some of the most prestigious companies and brands such as, Cloud Margin, Trip Advisor and Adidas.

I am proud to join the Skill Value adventure and to support companies in their challenges of selecting IT profiles (freelancers or recruitment). The skill shortage and the current pandemic are bringing new challenges to companies that need to accelerate their digital transformation. We are innovating on a daily basis to help speed up the deployment of their digital projects,comments Yan Jones, UK Sales Director of Skill Value, “Our goal is to grow our presence initially in the United-Kingdom and, by the end of the year, in the United States.”
