Recently, Echo, a leading provider of technology-enabled transportation and supply chain management services, was at the point in its growth where it needed to start investing in tools that enabled it to scale as an organization.

In our sit-down with Erin Brown, Head of Recruiting, and Bethany Aho, Recruiting Operations Supervisor, we learned exactly how Echo was able to successfully deploy Greenhouse, gain buy-in from all stakeholders, and, to top it off, achieve recruiter-hiring manager alignment.
