Transcript

  • 1. How we hired our first US employee in two weeks? Text
  • 2. www.mention.com: 50%of our clients in the US (GitHub, MIT, Microsoft, ...)
  • 3. How to source, select and hire the best candidate to join our team ASAP?
  • 4. We spent as little time as we could on the job description (we’re looking for a rockstar, not just a position to fill)
  • 5. We posted offers on AngelList - best place to find awesome candidates!
  • 6. We exchanged emails with the 100most awesome candidates
  • 7. We called the 30most awesome candidates once
  • 8. We called the 10most awesome candidates twice
  • 9. We met the 5 most awesome candidates in person (c’mon, NewYork is only 8 hours away from Paris)
  • 10. We sent an offer to the 1 most awesome candidate (just two days later.The faster, the better!)
  • 11. Lessons learned: * Don’t spend too much time on job descriptions * Leverage AngelList for sourcing * Interview by phone a lot * Meet just a couple of candidates in person * Move fast * ... (coming soon!)
  • 12. Questions? @clementdelangue Job? https://angel.co/mention/jobs Curious? www.mention.com
