For the past number of months, ACELR8 has worked with Rasa to help find key hires in their rapidly-growing company. Sourcing and recruiting for 17 senior positions in a range of departments, the ACELR8 team has helped ease the hiring pressure for this tech firm.
To learn more about their experience with ACELR8, I spoke with Liam Morley, the Director of Talent Acquisition at Rasa.
This year, two Talent Partners from ACELR8 have joined the team, Angela Ndagire and Lawrence Cox. Together they help Liam and the Rasa team source and recruit high-quality talent.
What is Rasa?
Rasa offers companies an open-source conversational AI. Used by large corporations and telcos the world over, they are quickly gaining traction as a time and money saver that can be applied at scale. For Rasa, this is great news, but it also means a large amount of growth.
During the conversation, Liam mentioned the idea of scaling and how fundamental a problem it can be for early-stage companies. Liam told me:
“You know, I have a friend in talent acquisition and they’ve just raised an 80 million Series B. It’s just him and one other person in the talent team. They’ve got to hire 200 people, and he asked me: what can I do? And I said, well, you’re screwed.”
This problem of scaling was something that Liam identified as a key issue for Rasa, and something that the ACELR8 team has helped with.
