What was the brief?
StreamSets have gained rapid growth post pandemic, as a result they are searching for more specialist expertise moving forward. StreamSets were on the hunt for a Director of Worldwide Professional Services. For this role, it was essential for the candidate to have 3-5 years’ experience in staff management, as well as data industry experience (ETL, analytics, integration, big data, Hadoop, Spark, Snowflake, Databricks) and skilled within Linux. A ‘hands on’ technical approach to the candidates early career was crucial, with customer facing skills being ideal, but not entirely necessary. This role was to be based anywhere across the US, being a completely remote role. With an immediate start date.
What was our process and the outcome?
Being the first recruiter enlisted to help StreamSets in their search to fill this role, JPS began looking within their talent pool straight away. We shortlisted 10 candidates for this role, and sent 5 for interview. The interview process consisted of 3 stages. In just 6 short weeks, the successful candidate was placed at StreamSets.
