Customers love TurnKey (and we love them back!)

3 Years in a Row Best in KLAS for Ambulatory Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) Services

"TurnKey is the only offshore firm we've interacted with that really places an emphasis on retention. They seem to be the only ones that understand how important retention is to maintaining strong product development cycles. Our churn rate with TurnKey has been under 5% annually whereas we were at more than 50% with our previous vendor!"

We've hired 5 full-time software engineers through TurnKey. To date, not a single engineer has left our contract/arrangement. We worked with several U.S.-based recruitment firms, and none matched the speed and quality of candidates referred by TurnKey. Most impressive and unique about TurnKey is their willingness to reach for the perfect candidate. Our requirements are strict, and they did not compromise.

"It's been nearly two years of us working together and we have not had the need to replace a single developer. The programmers have all performed very well and TurnKey has been able to give us information that has helped to retain our key players."


Mackezie Drazan (US)

CEO of MiResource

We have hired 5 total developers including tech lead, full stack, dev ops and firmware. For each hire, a strong pipeline of candidates was provided, and the TurnKey team performed a lot of pre-screening such that those that entered the funnel were strong and relevant. They also helped with setting salary comp, and closing. Finally they continue to provide HR services as well as legal admin services associated with employment of a geographically diverse group of developers.

We started with 8 hired developers and there have been no problems with any of the hires. We are currently monitoring them as we do all engineers but there is nothing to report that would make us consider this arrangement with TurnKey anything but successful. The transparent pricing up front as well as the genuine desire to continue improving with each hire we make is a big difference maker for us.

TurnKey provided high-quality talent at a cost-effective price. We employed TurnKey to manage the hiring/HR/Legal for >80% of our entire Product team - from identifying and hiring Team Leads, to agent level support roles. I also appreciated that they were proactive in suggesting certain criteria and requirements when first starting our search for key team lead members.

Founder & CEO of ResNet AI Inc.
The Best E-Signature Software According to G2

We reviewed several similar companies and along with the cost the major deciding factor was the quality of experienced candidates TurnKey was presenting to us. The additional team members worked alongside our scrum teams delivering new feature functionality and enhancements to our platform.We're impressed with the quality of their candidates and the work ethic they demonstrate on a day-to-day basis in our agile ceremonies.


Sandy Speirs (US)

Director Of Engineering at Sertifi, Inc.

TurnKey is well versed in the startup ecosystem and really understands our needs when it comes to offshore dev, particularly how our needs may be different than the needs of a huge public company. I don’t have to explain as much to TurnKey as I have had to do with other offshore vendors—they seem to get it on the first take. But at the end of the day, all we really care about is quality, and TurnKey has delivered the goods on this front better than other firms we’ve worked with in the past.

Key Questions – and Answers! – about Scala developers


Why is Scala development popular?

Scala was at its peak until 2020, then its popularity decreased, but there are still many old projects that need talent and new ones are being found. Firstly, Scala is a versatile programming language that combines the best features of both object-oriented and functional programming paradigms. This versatility allows developers to write concise and expressive code, making it easier to maintain and scale applications. Secondly, Scala runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which means it can seamlessly interoperate with existing Java code and libraries. This cross-compatibility has made it a top choice for companies looking to modernize their Java-based systems. Lastly, Scala's strong support for concurrency and distributed computing makes it ideal for building high-performance, scalable applications, particularly in the era of cloud computing.

How to hire a Scala developer?

Hiring a skilled Scala developer involves several key steps. Start by defining your project's requirements and the specific skills you need in a developer. Then, you can post job listings on relevant platforms or consult with a specialized recruitment agency. During the interview process, assess a candidate's Scala proficiency through coding challenges and review their previous projects. It's also essential to evaluate their understanding of functional programming principles and their ability to work with the tools and frameworks commonly used in the Scala ecosystem.

What skills to look for when you hire top Scala engineers?

Top Scala engineers should possess a blend of technical and soft skills. In addition to expertise in Scala itself, they should have a solid understanding of functional programming concepts and design patterns. Strong problem-solving skills, the ability to write clean and maintainable code, and a knack for optimizing performance are also crucial. Effective communication, teamwork, and adaptability are valuable soft skills, as they ensure seamless collaboration within your development team.

What are the main interview questions to hire Scala developers?

When interviewing Scala developers, consider asking questions that assess their knowledge of both the language and its practical applications. Some sample interview questions include:

  • Explain the differences between immutability and mutability in Scala, and when would you use each?
  • Can you describe the Actor model in the context of concurrency in Scala?
  • How do you handle exceptions in Scala, and what are the advantages of Scala's approach to error handling?
  • What are the benefits of using the Akka toolkit in Scala for building distributed systems?
  • Provide an example of how you would write a higher-order function in Scala.

What are the tools used by Scala developers?

Scala developers rely on a range of tools and frameworks to streamline their development processes. Some common tools include:

  • the Scala Build Tool (SBT) for project management, 
  • ScalaTest for testing, 
  • Akka for building distributed systems,
  • Play Framework for web development,
  • Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) such as IntelliJ IDEA or Visual Studio Code with Scala plugins for coding convenience. 

The choice of tools may vary depending on the specific project's requirements and the developer's preferences.
