A Bay Area seed-stage Robotics/AI startup had been searching for a Principal Software Engineer for over 90 days. Their backlog was filling up, putting pressure on the entire engineering department.
We worked with their Head of Engineering to understand the nuances of the position, technical environment, company culture, and long term plans. We also focused on what previously interviewed candidates were missing.
Within two weeks, we presented 4 highly-qualified candidates and filled the position with a Ph.D. in Computer Science with several years of experience in a closely-related industry who had not been actively looking for a new role. We were able to pique their interest with the track record of the engineering leadership, company culture, and challenging problems their company was tackling.
