"The most important part of growing your business is establishing a foundation of trustworthy, competent employees who share your vision. Even if you are hiring quickly, it's vital that you ensure that every new hire embodies the company culture and ethos that you are looking to maintain. Sophie was one of the main drivers of our company growth and managed to build an unmatched, top-tier team. If you ever have the chance to work with YouNameIt - do it!"

Project Scope

We built up the Talent Acquisition department at GoStudent from scratch and recruited together with the team for all levels & departments up to C-level in the entire EU, LATAM and NA.

We have recruited and onboarded from global players such as McKinsey, Uber, Airbnb, Tinder worldwide. We were able to grow the global team from 30 to 2.000+ employees in two years and additionally implemented recruiting support for the acquisitions.
