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.

The Need

Our recruitment challenge

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.

The Knack

Our solution

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.
