“I needed to build talent acquisition from the ground up. But being a non-equity company hiring in San Francisco, it was incredibly competitive — salaries were high, and quality wasn’t guaranteed.”

Zachary Dupra

Head of Global Talent Acquisition, TaskRabbit

The process

1

Braintrust worked closely with the TaskRabbit team.

 

Braintrust made the process easy. After an initial call, TaskRabbit received a slew of quality Talent recommendations in under 48 hours.

2

Braintrust filled jobs in 1/3 of the time, from 44 days to 14.

 

TaskRabbit surged, with 30% of its engineering team filled by Braintrust Talent based everywhere from Greece and Poland to Latvia.

3

Braintrust became TaskRabbit’s core hiring solution.

 

The ease of use, plus the quality and longevity of the Talent, led TaskRabbit to make Braintrust their sole contracting solution.

The obstacles

A heated market for specialized engineers.

TaskRabbit needed skilled talent with Ruby on Rails experience, but hiring rates were exploding.

Slow and costly talent acquisition methods.

Search firms were ramping up their rake, charging 25% placement fees on salaries that were already high.

Global goals, but few distributed workers.

Almost all of the company’s engineering team was based in its Bay Area office, limiting the company’s talent pool and reach.

“The quality of engineers, incredible flexibility, and ease of use is why we now don’t use any agencies or networks other than Braintrust to source our contractors. What I appreciate most is the longevity: There is a real tenure in the people we contract through Braintrust.”
