How SiteCompli Achieves Rapid Growth with a One-Person Talent Team

SiteCompliSiteCompli is a real estate technology company that provides the breakthrough technology, expertise, and resources needed to help property owners stay ahead of critical and costly compliance issues. SiteCompli technology automatically and continuously aggregates and analyzes compliance data on violations, complaints, and inspections from various New York City government agencies all in a fraction of the time that people take to do the same task manually. If you’re in the real estate management business in NYC, there’s a good chance you know SiteCompli -- or you should.

However, SiteCompli serves a relatively specific and niche market, something that can make recruiting talent a challenge. Margaret Dwyer, Manager of People Operations at SiteCompli knows that challenge well, and yet has helped the company more than double in the last year. She recently shared with us some of what makes SiteCompli such a great place to work, and how she manages (as a team of one!) to recruit outstanding talent.

At 2,300 employees and growing fast, Red Ventures has a recruiting method that’s data-driven and efficient. That said, the company isn’t immune to its share of recruiting challenges, from a hard-to-categorize employer brand, to an incredibly selective hiring process. We recently spoke with Hallie Kilmer, Vice President of Human Capital at Red Ventures, and learned how they’re working to overcome these challenges and use data to optimize the hiring process.

The Squarespace Formula for a Successful Recruiting Strategy

squarespace3What are the elements of a successful recruiting strategy? In 2014, Greenhouse customer Squarespace had 200 staff members and was looking to more than double its workforce -- no small undertaking. The team now counts almost 500 employees.

Hiring great engineers is especially tough, as Squarespace competes for applicants with very large and established software companies who employ an army of sourcers and recruiters. Compare this to the Squarespace technical recruiting team, which is only three people strong.

Last year, the company launched “Be a Part of It,” allowing engineers to experience NYC when they interviewed with Squarespace. Hugely successful, the recruiting campaign drew over 2000 applicants, five of whom were ultimately hired. This year the program was expanded, and now operates under the name NYCommit. In this post, we dive into the Squarespace formula for launching a successful recruiting campaign.
