Our work

Series-B fintech startup

We began working with a recently closed Series-B fintech startup with approximately 20,000 users. The organization was not widely known or heavily marketed; InterQuest was tasked with building out their engineering team and securing their earliest diverse hires. Our first placement was very early and was their fifth engineering hire (including their CTO). Overall, we placed nine of their first 20 engineers over a six-month period. Additionally, InterQuest placed the organization’s first two female engineers, and increased their engineering team’s ratio of diverse hires by 50%. Key Takeaways: Placed 9 of their first 20 engineers over a 6-month period / Hired the organization’s first female engineers – resulting in a 50% increase in diverse hires / Placed their fifth overall engineering hire.

Series-B fitness startup

We began working with a Series-B fitness startup before and after its acquisition by a major fitness organization. InterQuest placed over 1/3 of the total engineering team, distributed primarily across web, mobile, and backend developers; many were focused on Android. In total, we placed 18 hires in six months with the organization, helping them rapidly scale their team in their pre- and post-acquisition stages. Key takeaways: 18 hires in six months, amounting to over 1/3 of the engineering team / Many hires were focused within Android, making them difficult to fill / Helped the organization adapt to hiring challenges in both their pre- and post-acquisition state.

Real estate tech startup

InterQuest assisted this real estate tech startup by placing numerous executive-level appointments, including the CTO, Head of Data Science, Head of Testing, Head of HR, as well as a handful of IC-level engineers within a year. These placements equipped the organization with leadership capable of helping their organization navigate their journey from seed stage to Series-A.
