Case Study: Aize

Your Opinion
Published: 06.07.22

Aize was established in 2020 – but while they may only be in their infancy as a company, their expertise dates back much further.

Part of the Aker ASA group, the Aize team draws on 180 years’ experience to deliver innovative software solutions that are transforming the energy landscape. What’s more, their extensive domain knowledge includes a three decades-long partnership with Coabis, giving them a unique advantage to exert influence over the industry.

The backstory

Aize was looking to dramatically increase the size of their team – namely their software engineering, front-end development, DevOps, technical support, and quality assurance departments. And that’s where Cathcart Technology’s specialist tech recruitment know-how came in.

The process

Following a discussion with their HR team to determine whether or not we would be a good fit for one another, we arranged a further scoping call with Aize’s hiring managers to outline their goals. From there, we were able to sketch out a tailored interview process that best suited Aize. 

With regular communication on Slack, lots of collaboration, and a carefully crafted screening process, we effectively delivered a strong pipeline of potential candidates within just a few days.

The outcome

Using our market knowledge, we conducted thorough research to advise Aize on the tech professionals available throughout Aberdeen. Within four weeks of our partnership, we’d delivered on our promise – filling Aize’s roles with a number of high-quality candidates.

Aize was extremely pleased with our results. Cathcart continues to assist their hiring managers with recruitment as demand for their product grows – and, in turn, the necessity to find more top tech talent to join their team.

The Cathcart Technology team has a deep knowledge of the tech recruitment sector, so they had an acute understanding of what we were looking for in terms of future employees. They took the time to get to know our company’s values, culture and ambitions by working closely with our hiring managers. They presented us with a wide network of candidates and advised us every step of the way. We have been impressed with the service and look forward to continuing our partnership.” – Sarah Shearer, People & Organisation Manager at Aize

What it’s like to work at Aize

As an Aizer, you’ll be working in uncharted territory – there’s no template for what they do. Your tools will be familiar, but you’ll be experiencing a lot of firsts. To be cut out for a spot on the team, you need a coder’s brain and the heart of an explorer. Consider yourself the Indiana Jones of Python? The Lara Croft of C#? Aize might just be your next home.

Aize is proud to be shaped by the people that work for them – not the other way around. They describe their team as diverse, an assorted mix of more than 30 nationalities and countless personalities with one thing in common: a passion for tech and solving the industry’s challenges. As such, Aize always welcomes a range of competencies and new perspectives, valuing collaboration above all else. It’s no wonder their motto is “Come as you are, be who you are, and do what you do best!”

Though their energy missions are monumental, they approach them with a spring in their step. Working at Aize means not taking yourself too seriously, and engaging in your playful side. To learn more about their company culture, watch this video.
