Equal Experts – Why Work With Us?


A diverse, global community of over 1,500 experienced software professionals.

The EE network is made up of associates and permanent staff. No matter the position, we look for quality above all else – growing our numbers organically via personal referrals.

All our experts have extensive experience, and we also operate a rigorous selection process. This ensures that everyone who works for us has the skills required to thrive in the dynamic client environments that host our projects.

Our focus on only using senior people brings many benefits. With a flat structure promoting empowerment, we can operate with fewer overheads, while offering a more concentrated pool of experienced talent than our competitors. It also means our talent can focus on work that adds real value, rather than micro-managing more junior consultants.

For our clients, this all translates to better software, delivered faster and at lower cost. And for our team, it means a working environment with less politics and more freedom to innovate. Experienced people know what they’re doing – we free them to do what they do best.

 

 

 

Create innovative products and world class solutions

As strategic partners we use industry leading strategy, design and delivery techniques to help disrupt the market, create innovative products, accelerate delivery and build world-class solutions.

 

With offices in the UK, US, Germany, Australia, South Africa, Portugal and India our network of over 1,500 experienced technology consultants – a blend of permanent employees and associates – work with a wide range of public and private sector clients.

    I worked at Equal Experts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you're a pragmatic contractor that loves crafting software then this is a fine organisation to be involved with.

    My experience has been overwhelmingly positive - I was placed at a client with other EE people and felt valued and respected from day one. EE take care to ensure you're delivering value to clients, not just a bum on a seat, and this really shows.

    The interview process at EE sets the bar higher than most and you can tell in the calibre of people they hire - not just in technical know-how but in general attitude and professionalism.

    The EE network is a wonderful thing and long may it continue to grow!

    Cons

    They paid a bit less than some of the other consultancies engaged with the client but this is a minor grumble since the EE day rate is decent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - the network is growing but by keeping your plans and strategy open it

    QA Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Equal Experts (London, England) in February 2020.

    Interview

    1. Initial telephone chat with a Peoples Manager to briefly go over your experience
    2. Take home technical test that consists of both manual and automated testing
    3. Overly challenging pairing interview (that I did not pass), it was heavily focused on performance testing and I failed for lack of test strategy and consultancy skills even though we never actually touched on my experience of setting up QA strategies from scratch
    4. next round is consultancy / hr round which I never got to

    All in all, the pairing interview was tough and feel the interviewer tried hard to get me to slip up in somer regards, however my Peoples Manager is/was excellent and encouraged me to try again in 6-12 months, which I may consider and in the mean time have taken aboard some feedback and will continue to up skill as there's never any harm in that,

    Interview Questions

    • Why use BDD (I answered this correctly, I've read John Ferguson Smart's book "BDD in Action") yet interviewer still did not seem satisfied

      What's the difference between HTTP and REST? (My brain froze during this unfortunately but I do know the difference, nerves got the better of me)

      How can you come up with a Load testing strategy?

      What would you do if you see a drop in performance but developer argues that everything works fine from a functional perspective? Again I believe I gave a reasonable answer but interviewer did not seem satisfied   Answer Question
