Hiring for Startups - the 3 step process to getting the right people to work with your company

  2. 2. Exotel is a small sized startup but the 30-40 people who have helped build this company, have all been honest, happy, hard-working & humble people. We are really proud and honoured to be working with all of these folks. I thought about a good way to structure this e-book, which literally is a collection of all the insights we have picked up during our hiring over the last 2.5 years at Exotel and this is what I came up with.

  4. 4. Hiring Strategy | Techniques - A Small Snippet TECHNIQUESTECHNIQUES We’ll break this up into Must Do’s & Vertical focussed strategies: Must Do’s 1. Job Description – Personify it What do you mean by Personifying a profile? Simple – when we wanted to hire an Inbound/Content Marketing specialist for Exotel, Nandini Vishwanath, Head, Community & Customer Support at Urban Ladder helped us frame the job description and in a lovely turn of events, also helped us finally hire someone for that role. Frame a good JD. And that’s what a potential applicant reads, right? That’s on the basis of which they decide if this is for them or not. If a good talent leaves because you haven’t spent time on your JD, it is your loss.

The “Abhishek Goyal” exercise He let us in on his hiring secret which helped us alter the way we thought about hiring We met the man who scaled Urbantouch crazily in 2 years and had the best talent working with him, so much so, he said, he could have been out for 4 months and not affected the growth of the company. It was all down to the team he had built. It’s a great read so far, hearing it from the lions mouth after all. - Gopi Aravind | CEO, Unwired labs Click here to download the complete ebook to read about the best practices that helped us build Exotel over 2.5 years. Here’s what some of the folks who’ve read this ebook have said This document is a fantastic representation of various thoughts. I read it back-2-back twice and I have a lot of clarity about ZapStitch hiring. I am looking forward for a fantastic meeting in the next 2 days with our team on this. - Satya Padmanabham | Co-Founder, ZapStitch
