Case study

How Global {M} was able to structure a recruitment process for TravelPerk by digging into the data

Industry: Business travel
Location:  Barcelona, Spain
Background: The leading B2B travel website, receiving $44million of Series C funding late 2018, looking to triple the growth of the Engineering team (Python, and React.JS tech stack).
Type of project: On site + 2 remote resources

"A very transparent interview with a lot of questions related with hard and soft skills. Information very structured and nice performance. The Global {M} Talent Partner was such a wonderful person that makes me feel comfortable."
Ericson Cepeda
Software Engineer

Overview

Global {M} worked with the Head of Talent at TravelPerk to design a recruitment model to hire software engineers into the business. There have been inconsistent results with traditional agencies, and we devised a data-driven approach, which understood that for every 6 Software Engineers introduced that passed the initial test, 1 would be hired. 

Challenge

Following their Series C funding, TravelPerk plans to triple the size of the team, across a niche technology stack with Python and React.js. Global {M} Talent Partners, worked to integrate with the existing team, and ensure that we understood the interview and team structure, as well as culture&values of this fast growing tech unicorn.

Approach

We on-boarded a senior Talent Partner, who relocated to Barcelona, and met the entire HR and engineering team. The Talent Partner has become integral to the HR process, screening technical candidates, on 5 key points: Salary, Tech Skills, Education, B2C and Consumer experience, and Visa qualifications. Using a Trello board, Daily stand-ups , and Weekly reporting the recruitment model allowed us to uncover relevant candidates across Barcelona and Europe for TravelPerk, track them through the process, and close everyone offered a position with the firm, a statistic we are very proud about!

Results

5 key Software Engineer hires and ongoing over the course of the project.
