We setup our Berlin office and added Fexco, Ireland’s largest fintech company, as our latest Extended Development Team in Madrid.
We built our first Extended Development Team in Madrid for Valant, a Seattle based medtech company. We worked with Danish local government to relocate software developers to Copenhagen’s games and fintech sectors.
We setup our Madrid office and provided inhouse recruitment services for companies including Stripe.com and Zendesk in Dublin.
Our client list for recruitment services grew to include mostly fast-growing Irish tech companies and US tech companies setting up in Europe.
Our first large retained recruitment client was Ryanair. We created a branded careers site for Ryanair Labs, implemented our software solution, and successfully sourced a new CTO and 50 software developers for the company. We also launched the first interactive job ad on Twitter.
We launched Make IT in Ireland, a social media marketing campaign to attract IT professionals to Ireland. The project was funded by Google, Facebook, Apple, Twitter, Microsoft, Oracle and others including the Irish government.
Our software became 100% focused on recruitment. Hirehive.com, our Applicant Tracking System has customers across the US, Europe and Asia.
We started out to build software as a service solutions in the area of HR and recruitment. Our first investor said: “We don’t understand what you’re doing. We don’t think you understand what you’re doing. But we think you’ll figure it out.”
We needed the right mix of technical skills, cultural fit and language skills. Zartis put together a plan to help us achieve that, they did a tremendous amount of work to find the right candidates. Since then, the follow-through process has been amazing. They found office space for us; they handle our HR issues; they check in with the squad multiple times a week. The sense of ongoing partnership we have with Zartis is really unique. We don't think of them as our recruiting company; we think of them as an extension of our team, as true partners.
Zartis helped us build our European team in Dublin.
Without them we couldn’t have done it.
Zartis worked as an extension of our internal recruitment team, helping us build our software development team in Dublin and Copenhagen with no interruptions in our hiring plans. They were honest and professional at all times and got us amazing candidates. They sourced, screened, coordinated interviews, updated our ATS and managed the offer process. I'd highly recommend the Zartis team for any staffing augmentation/RPO scenario a recruiting team may need.
