Why Global {M}

Global{M} was well suited to Seqera Labs’s project, understanding the needs of the Hiring Managers, and the niche market in which they operate and providing expertise to bring new ideas and ensure a great hiring experience.


The Talent Partner integrated with the existing team, ensuring the culture and values of this fast-growing company were matched and collaborated with Hiring Managers to get positive results on the candidate process. 

The company is the spin-off of an open-source project, with a niche product. The challenge was to engage tech and non-technical roles in this specific technology. These factors made the search particularly challenging and exciting at the same time.


The Talent Partner did an initial diagnosis of the talent acquisition processes, to understand the EVP of the company and propose the best candidate experience journey (considering hiring funnels, communications through the different stages and the moments of truth).  

Then, the talent partner met with the hiring managers to work on the expectations and ideal profiles. Kick-off meetings for each role and retrospective session has been organized to keep improving the process with the key stakeholder of the company. 

The talent partner assessed culture engagement from the beginning and made sure that candidates understood the product and business model at every step of the hiring process. 

Close contact with the candidates with a robust candidate experience journey was key to finding and keeping the right talents engaged for this company.  


Within 17 months, we placed 39 candidates into the business.
