20%+ of Pre-Series A Hires (and counting)
STRIVR is used by some of the world’s most respected organizations, from professional sports teams to Fortune 100 companies. The STRIVR platform utilizes immersive VR to help individuals learn faster and more effectively, which improves reaction time, pattern recognition, and decision making in the real world.
Initially, STRIVR needed a Sr. Brand Planner with the polish of an agency veteran and the scrappiness of an inventor on a budget. They also needed a talent partner who could navigate pitfalls of scaling teams and recruiting top talent in a high demand market. The company received a sizable seed round and expanded their offerings into new markets. Translation: STRIVR needed to build cross-functional teams across almost every vertical - teams that could ramp up quickly, work like a cohesive unit, and navigate unchartered territory.
Digital Knack started working with STRIVR when they had about 20 employees. Since then, Digital Knack has staffed 20% of the company with 100% of candidates placed upholding performance expectations and contributing positively to culture. Placing across nearly every function of the company to date in Menlo Park, CA and Playa Vista, CA – Sales, Customer Solutions, Instructional Designers, Customer Success, UX/UI, UX/UI VR, People Operations & Technical Teams.

In general, time is our most perishable commodity and DK has sourced and helped us close outstanding candidates that hit the ground running, bring needed skills/expertise and add to the company culture - faster and better than we've been able to do ourselves. We've had questionable experiences with other recruiters in the past that look to just fill a role and collect their money, DK goes above and beyond to learn about our team and the specific role and find someone who will be successful in the role, instead of just who appears to be a good candidate. DK is a true partner and I feel like they're more an extension of the team than a vendor.

Cassie has been a true professional throughout the whole recruiting process. I was impressed with how informed she was about the company (teams, benefits, culture), and when there was ever a time I asked a question where she didn't have an answer, she would find out and get back to me promptly. Every candidate wants to hear back feedback, feel as though they are a priority instead of just another candidate, and feel comfortable with their decisions instead of being pressured. These are the areas in which Cassie excelled in, and exactly why I wanted to write this recommendation on my own accord. If every recruitment process were as smooth as this, every candidate would want to work with recruiting firms such as Digital Knack.
