When partnering with AMS, it was agreed that a company-wide proactive recruitment plan was required immediately in order for the company to scale at speed.
To meet the surge in demand for talent across the entire company, rinna partnered with AMS and quickly established a company wide, end-to-end recruitment drive, including graduate and midcareer hiring led by rinna’s HR Manager, Alex Lagata. With the support of the entire senior leadership team, including CEO, Chen “Cliff” Zhan, and COO Momo Klyen, rinna and AMS have together managed the entire recruitment ecosystem since mid-December of 2020. Using strictly direct talent sourcing, rinna was able to grow rapidly in its first 3 months, from 15 to 60, avoiding costly agencies and job posting sites.
‘AMS gave me a reliable and proactive resource that helped in realising the recruitment plan I had crafted. Incorporating AMS in the hiring process was straightforward as they were prepared and ready to partner with us from Day 1.’
— Alex Lagata, HR Manager
‘I am delighted that we have been able to compete and win against large, well-established companies when it comes to recruiting new talent. The senior leadership team at rinna trusts AMS. In addition, by partnering with them, their knowledge and innovative culture has further strengthened our HR process.’
— Momo Klyen, COO
Together with AMS, rinna has succeeded in complex hiring including hiring new developers with specialised knowledge researchers, such as C#, Kubernetes, Python, TypeScript, Machine Learning, with relevant backgrounds in natural language processing as well as product managers, sales professionals, and marketing executives. Their target to reach 100+ within their first year of independence, is attainable given their current strong growth rate.
rinna is a truly global company employing talent from China, Russia, Bangladesh, Germany, the Philippines and Indonesia. Talent ranges from new graduates to those in their 60s, and more than half of its board are women. With their hiring-winning formula, rinna continues to succeed in developing an organisation that enables AI development based on the principles of diversity and equality.
Now armed with the workforce required, these are truly exciting times for rinna.
