#ProfileMember Rallyteam, the internal mobility platform, has successfully completed a Herculean task of raising $8.6 million to continue to help companies retain talent.
The superstar startup provides software for large corporates to find talent within the pool of their own employees, and you can find the engineers and devs team behind it all, here in Vancouver, at The Profile’s Downtown location.
Some of our biggest successes to date have been around working with great enterprise companies such as eBay
One company who has begun to make use of Rallyteam’s platform for sourcing and developing talent is eBay. We caught up with David Somers, CEO at Rallyteam, who tells us, “Some of our biggest successes to date have been around working with great enterprise companies such as eBay and helping them really change their culture around career development and internal mobility. We’ve also been extremely successful in building a great team especially given the competition around talent in the technology space.”
For those who want to know how to find the friendly bunch of devs and engineers behind the Rallyteam software, they are in the Resident offices of our Downtown location. Stop by to say hi and talk tech & talent!
Good news for teams all round!
Rallyteam was born when the co-founders found themselves increasingly frustrated at how difficult it was to find new career opportunities within their current organizations. It was also clear to them that while there were many solutions they could leverage to find external opportunities, there was not an internal solution that would allow them to grow their skills and careers.
The software solution is not the only way the team is rallying up the talent troops. To help Vancouver’s demand for talent, Somers tells us, “We plan on leveraging our funding to continue to grow and scale the business in three main areas including Go to Market (Sales, Marketing), Engineering, and Client Success. We plan on hiring in San Francisco, Boulder, and Vancouver.
Vancouver has a wealth of talented engineers and a growing startup scene
“Vancouver has a wealth of talented engineers and a growing startup scene. It’s been a great place to setup our engineering office, especially since it’s in the same time zone as our head office (in San Francisco/Silicon Valley. Our biggest advice is that Bay Area tech companies should be doing business in Vancouver. We’ve found the business climate to be fantastic as it allows teams to be on the same time zone and the technical talent pool is really deep.”
