Easy Agile had been slowly growing their team without a TA Specialist. They reached a point where they needed to speed up their hiring.


The founders were looking for a recruitment partner that could take them on a journey – improving their confidence and skills with hiring, while also introducing them to new team members that had much deeper capabilities and experience than the existing team.

Two of their leaders had previously worked with the Lab17 in other companies and saw great results, delivered quickly. They deliberated hiring internally versus bringing on the Lab17, but opted for a Lab17 partnership as they were bringing in a small team of experts, rather than one person with limited capabilities.
