About Comet

Comet is a Paris-based startup on a mission to change how tech freelancers collaborate with companies. They connect people who mastered a variety of different technologies with startups seeking engineers for short-term projects. For the companies, it’s a lot of time saved on looking for the right people for their projects. For the freelancers, it’s taking out all of the stress regarding dealing with things like taxes and insurances, since all of that is taken care of by Comet.

The Challenge

Hiring for the key roels

Comet wanted to grow their team, but they were missing a few key roles that would make the expansion easier for them: Financial Manager, Operations Manager, and Community Manager.

The Results

Hiring for the key roels

1. Closing a Financial Manager role in 2 weeks

At first, we worked with Comet contingently on a trial basis to hire a Financial Manager. After a speedy closing in just two weeks, we went in-house to work on their remaining key roles — Operations Manager, and Content Manager. We worked closely with the VP of Talent to help Comet in hiring efforts for different roles as well before they found a full-time recruiter.

2. Reporting directly to the CEO

During the two months of working with the company, Mark, our Country Manager France, reported directly to the CEO of Comet. Having such a direct relationship with him allowed us to understand the company’s needs adequately. All three people that we hired still work for Comet and they helped the company grow to over 100 people.


Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost?

ACELR8 subscription-based pricing is split in a small retainer fee for getting a dedicated recruiter onboard and a small fee per hire. This makes it cheaper, the more people you hire. Alternatively, depending on your hiring needs, we can also offer you a flat fee.

What happens if we don’t make a hire?

In the very unusual outcome that ACELR8 is unable to fill the role, then you only pay the small retainer fee!
