NS1 Case Study
NS1 provides accurate control over application delivery that values interaction with customers. They build the world’s most intelligent DNS and traffic management technologies, enabling their customers to take unparalleled control over their traffic and infrastructure as conditions change in application environments and across the global network.
They’re relentlessly focused on helping their customers succeed in their digital transformation initiatives. Their platform is 100% API driven and DevOps is in their DNA. Through native integrations with leading DevOps tools and vendors, NS1 is removing the barriers to full infrastructure automation.
With a new EMEA leader onboard, and Series C funding hitting the bank, NS1 needed to scale their EMEA operations quickly in order to capitalise on the momentum. Over 4 months, GM Mark Fieldhouse hired 4 Senior Account Execs, an Alliances Manager and Operations Manager in partnership with Teem.
These were all A* hires but only took an average of less than 2 weeks to progress from CV received to offer signed!
I needed to build a team of A players quickly to meet our G2M plans in Europe. Teem asked good discovery questions to understand what makes a great hire for NS1 and the compelling reasons to join us. We had a pre-agreed game plan, defined the interview process and time line, typically to coincide with key events like our SKO.
I was able to trust them to present well qualified candidates that would be a fit for NS1 culturally as well as on paper. After that it came down to constant communication, exchanging feedback (good and bad) and making sure we worked as a team to maintain momentum and bring on board the people I really wanted to join NS1.
The experience for candidates who we didn’t offer was important too, because they could still be potentials for our future growth. It is reassuring to know everyone I interviewed was handled with the same level of professionalism by Teem.
If you have real intent to hire and can agree on a success criteria and a clear process, Teem will ensure you meet your timescales.
