The word Honeypot may conjure very different meanings among people: while IT-experts will think of a computer security strategy to trap hackers, thriller readers will think of seductive female spies . Those more innocent at heart will just think of Winnie The Pooh. And now there is a new meaning for the word, as Berlin-based startup Honeypot has developed a new job platform that connect the right talents with matching jobs out there. As finding skilled and senior developers seems to be a big issue, Honeypot came up with a solution.
Like bees to honey
Emma Tracey founded Honeypot in Berlin in October 2015 together with Kaya Taner. Since its launch, developers have been taking to the platform like bees to honey, as more than 8,000 developers and 600 recruiters from 225 companies have signed up. On their platform developers can connect with over 250 tech companies. This Berlin based startup saw the Amsterdam market as a sweet honeypot full of opportunities and decided to have a lick. That’s why the company launched their Dutch campaign this November.
