These professionals will not only contribute to the company’s technical objectives but will also have a significant impact on team dynamics and overall company culture. Identifying candidates who align with the organization’s values and vision can be just as important as assessing their technical skills.

FPT’s recruitment process places a strong emphasis on evaluating a candidate’s cultural fit and leadership qualities.
