Scaling team to 18 employees from France to Europe
At the outset of our collaboration, the entire team was located in France. Together, we successfully orchestrated the growth of their team, extending it from 8 to 18 employees strategically located across different regions in Europe.
Fulfilling the hiring plan
At the time, Koyeb was in its initial stages of operation, with several product features under development. Thus, the recruitment of highly niche specialised roles played a pivotal part in driving the business forward, solidifying the realisation of our hiring plan.
Working closely with the founders to hire for their teams successfully ensured that Koyeb could bring onboard the strongest talent. On vice versa, the talent was dfireclty in contact with the founders and bought into the mission and vision of the company. Founder-led hiring in early-stage startups works!
The project had a slow start, partly because we were operating in a tough tech market. Since Koyeb was still in its early days, finding the right candidates with all the necessary skills was a challenge. But with good teamwork and communication between Koyeb and A8 we managed to reach our goals. The embedded setup turned out to be the best choice for Koyeb.
