”The extensive experience and impressive understanding of our special area of business by the Starmap headhunter were critical for the finding and selection of an ideal R&D Director. As a result of a process, we were able to choose amongst a wide variety of excellent candidates", said Ville Kuusela, CEO, Visma Solutions.

To this date Starmap has successfully completes the direct searches for the following positions at Visma: Netvisor R&D Director and Payroll Product Manager, Visma Sign R&D Director as well as R&D Directors for Valueframe and Severa.

Visma has been successful in the Finland's Best Workplaces survey and ranked in the top three in the series of large organizations for three years in a row. Although Visma's employer image is very positive and numerous jobs are constantly open, the direct search made it possible to find candidates who otherwise would not have been reached at all.

"We received a very good and wide range of candidates for the challenging search. The recruitment process was very flexible from the client's point of view, and the headhunter's extensive personal experience of the industry and the requirements of the task helped us find the best talent", said Ville Kuusela further about the results of the successful direct search for the R&D Director of the Netvisor financial management software".

Starmap works in continuous cooperation with both Visma's corporate management and HR experts. "We started with Visma in the spring of 2022 and now in the fall we already have several direct searches at the same time," said Starmap's Marko Torpo.

Jenni Toropainen, HR director (Director, People & Culture) Visma Solutions, said that the company chose a direct search because of the demanding nature of the position and because no suitable candidates could be found within the company. Communication during the recruitment process was effortless because the headhunter immediately understood the requirements related to the search in depth. It also turned out that some of the interviewees may be considered for another position later, so Visma got good value for its recruitment investment with Starmap.
