During my time at Rapid Ai, I had the opportunity to lead the growth of the engineering team from 6 to 45 members across North America and Australia. By working closely with the internal team, I was able to find and bring in top-tier AI engineering talent that perfectly fit the company’s growth goals. Rapid Ai’s innovative technology is truly life-changing, and my deep understanding of its product allowed me to effectively connect with candidates who had the specialised skills crucial to the company’s success in their field. I delved into Rapid Ai’s culture, gaining a deep understanding of its values, mission, and technical needs. This insight helped me identify candidates who not only had the necessary technical expertise but also resonated with the company’s culture and long-term vision. Using our integrated approach, we smoothly integrated new team members, building a united and collaborative engineering team to drive Rapid Ai’s growth and progress.
