What was the brief?
Redis Labs enlisted the help of JPS Selection to assist with their requirement for a Technical Account Manager within EMEA territories. They required two roles: one to replace a former team member, the other for growth. The client had previously struggled sourcing technically strong candidates, where candidates had fallen down at the assignment stage due to lacking the correct experience. This is where we were able to use our talent pool to find the most suitable candidate for Redis Labs.
The candidate was required to have Cloud experience with AWS/Azure/GCP, prior experience with NoSQL was preferred and some development experience so they can help solve tech issues – e.g. python, java, c#. These roles are fully remote, and therefore the candidate must be able to work independently, with future travel being necessary.
What was our process and outcome?
Through experience, expertise and research, JPS Selection were able to gain a strong understanding of the market landscape, which helped them to draw up a shortlist of only two high-quality, well-aligned candidates. One of which was successful, starting in April 2021 after a 12 week process. The candidate also has the the potential to progress into a Regional Leadership position as the company grows. JPS are still searching for a suitable candidate to fill the 2nd position.
