NieuwbouwOnline – founded in 2016 in Groningen – is developing a national platform for the sale of new-build homes for large NVM real estate agencies in the Netherlands.
From a central platform NbO builds regional websites and project websites with the new-build offerings of NVM new-build brokers. In addition to showing the offer, visitors have the option of subscribing to the websites and making their wishes known. The platform brings supply and demand together by matching customer demand with the supply of new-build homes to be built. In addition, NbO offers both the consumer and the real estate agent an online platform in which the entire process of purchasing a new-build home is digitized.
After two months of intensive search CEO Alex van Ginneken experienced it was very difficult to find good software developers in the dutch city Groningen. That was the reason why Alex and his team started to think of hiring nearshore developers. And they decided to reach out to SHORE teams.
Client preferred to have time zone overlap for the majority of working hours.
Candidates with big data experience and good English communication skills were preferred.
From the initial contact with SHORE teams it went quite quickly, according to Alex: “Within one month we’ve spoken to a few companies, had good conversations with one of them and an agreement to start with an initial developer.”
NbO had good conversations with 4 European partners (chosen because of time zone alignment) – the partially dutch, partially polish partner
Amsterdam Standard stood out. And the introduction of a really strong lead developer did the rest.
