"I can't recommend the team at Recruiting From Scratch highly enough. They have been instrumental in helping us recruit top-tier talent at Resourcely. Their remarkable knack for tapping into diverse talent pools is truly commendable, and their dedication shines through with every candidate they've introduced. Their adaptability and openness to feedback made our collaboration seamless and effective. Working with them felt like a genuine partnership. For any organization looking to significantly elevate their recruitment process, partnering with Recruiting From Scratch is a no-brainer."
“As an early-stage company without our own recruiting team, Recruiting From Scratch has been a key asset to our recruiting efforts. They are extremely responsive to feedback and consistently source against our specific needs, bringing in top notch talent. I would recommend any seed or series A stage startup to consider working with a Recruiting From Scratch. They are always engaged and a pleasure to work with.”
“I came into my role with many candidates in the pipeline for various engineering roles. I spent a lot of time screening what turned out to be a bit of unqualified applicants. RFS was able to send me mostly close and strong matches. We did end up hiring a few candidates that helped us meet our end of year hiring goals. The RFS team had very good communication overall and listened to our needs and expectations as we iterated through the process, as well as the job requirements. Our reps drove a good process and follow-up. Of the 2-3 other outside resources I was working with at the same time, RFS stood on top. While we're not currently paused using agencies at this time, I would certainly consider them as my primary resource when the time arises.”
“In early 2022 we were faced with huge demand to hire really strong, senior engineers, in a tough market, and needed some help building that pipeline. RFS came highly recommended, and I was impressed with their attention to detail, candidate experience, and the speed with which they could build really high quality pipeline, while still providing very thoughtful details and building great connections with both the candidates and our team. RFS was also very attentive to calibration needs, and proactively set up meeting early on in our partnership to troubleshoot issues in the funnel, and make sure we were on track - they were great at giving and taking feedback. Overall we had a great experience and made some excellent hires.”
“Recruiting from Scratch has been a terrific recruiter for my company. They succeeded where many other recruiters had failed repeatedly. Their team understood quickly the type of candidates we were after, even if our job description was not very well defined. Then they deployed all of their resources and worked non-stop on the search, in close feedback with us. The experience in growing startup teams from scratch is exceptional. I look forward to working with Will and his team again.”
“RFS has been a terrific hiring partner to Coda. They helped us find strong hires for a variety of roles who have become invaluable members of our team. They worked hard to understand what was most important to us. Highly recommend!”
