Hiring managers at early-stage startups trying to build out their teams face a big challenge.
Hiring is much easier if you are fortunate enough to be able to build your initial engineering team from your network.
However, if you are tasked with recruiting and hiring your team outside of your network…well, things can get tough.
📈 The Situation
The Engineering Manager at Waterly needed to add a few Senior Software Engineers to the team. He was doing 98% of the sourcing, screening and interviewing himself.
With a small team they were struggling to balance product roadmap goals and hiring goals.
🔍 The Solution
Waterly leveraged Woven Inbound to get a stream of pre-vetted candidates into final rounds of interviews faster.
We consulted on salary bands, job descriptions and interview best practices to help set the team up for success.
Instead of Waterly handling the sourcing, reviewing resumes, initial phone screens and then 2 hours of technical interviews they were able to move the pre-vetted Senior candidates to a technical interview immediately after reviewing the Woven results.
