I want to inform you in advance that I will be leaving RECOMY later this summer.
Since we started working on the early concept in January 2011, I have had the privilege to found the company, develop a high-potential business plan and build a powerful technology platform. At the same time Social Recruiting has developed into a fast-growing market and a game-changer in the recruiting and talent industry. I’m proud of the recent accomplishments in our platform since launch in April 2012. I’m even more excited for the world to see all the amazing things we have coming.
I’ve learned a lot in my time at RECOMY. I’m also grateful for the relationship with the team, business angels, mentors and our founding investor.
I’ve decided that now is a good time for me to leave RECOMY and focus on my passion, namely, building cool things with awesome people with unexpected results.
I am proud to be part of the game changers, the disrupters and the doers, a new bread of companies in the recruiting and job industry leveraging social media to change the online-job-posting and recruiting industry as you know it.
RECOMY has started with a simple idea and has now become a cutting edge web platform combining the power of several social networks. Katharina told me about her idea in mid 2010 and I was fascinated right from the start. We started working on the business plan in October 2010, found a family office who supported us, selected other team members and founded RECOMY AG in June 2011. Since then we have spent days and nights coding, building a unique user experience and talking to clients. RECOMY is ready to launch very soon and we are undertaking usage and scalability tests.
With a team of six we have done bootstrapping par excellence, thinking about our MVP and already solved many challenges on our startup journey.
Created in the heart of Europe we are looking forward to kick the ass of the market leaders, like Monster or CareerBuilder, and compete the US innovators, like BranchOut or Identified
We are launching soon – so stay tuned.
Yesterday I hold the first official keynote as CEO of RECOMY about “Success in Social Recruiting”. I presented some insights in our development at RECOMY and showed and explained a lot of screenshots of our brand new social recruiting platform. For this public version I had to take most of these screenshots out (as you can understand) since we are not public, yet.
I also gave three tips on how be be successful in Social Recruiting:
- 1. Build your Talent Community
- 2. Activate your Network
- 3. Track your Results
