As CEO and Co-founder of a Silicon Valley company, TuringSense (my 3rd startup), I believe it is paramount to establish our team philosophy and company culture very early on as we build the core team to execute the company vision. One corner stone is recruiting a team member that is better than any of us for the missing skillset, an A+ person that will strengthen our team and fit in our company culture to enjoy working together on a tough mission. Given this goal, we are very selective and thorough in our interview process, a very difficult task for a no-name startup still in stealth mode. We are very fortunate to find InspiredHigher and work with Yvonne, Andrea, and other staff members to achieve our high-standard recruiting goal. One of their specialties that is quite important to us is to recruit candidates that are NOT looking for a job but open to explore exciting startup opportunity. We gave them some key criteria and a list of companies to target for, and they relentlessly hunt them down to present us great candidates. We were introduced to use their software app called Newton to share resumes online, update status, gave quick feedback/comment to drop or prioritize candidates. It makes the recruiting process much more efficient and less time consuming.
