Problem
Statement

Knit was looking for tech and digital talents with experience in the SaaS industry and know-how of survey platforms to support its market research operations. The business model demanded expertise in data management and user experience.
Knit being a startup is scaling fast and requires talents in quick succession. Initially, they ventured out to get the talents on their own via job portals and social media platforms. They had conducted hundreds of interviews but were pressed for time. Specialization in customer feedback, coupled with market research was a difficult combination to secure locally. Furthermore, they had employed a few freelancers to complete the projects at hand on time and had terrible experiences with the talents.

Solutions

Uplers helped to source and bring out the top talent in India, any kind of high-level role requirement in terms of skills is always sourced based on the job description we share. The profiles of highly vetted experts were received within a couple of days. It has been credible in terms of scaling our team out of India.
- Aneesh Dhawan, Founder, Knit
With Uplers’ massive network of 500,000+ talents across 100+ skill sets, sourcing top talents was not an issue. Uplers’ vetting process helped in identifying 3 deeply vetted profiles for the client to choose from. Knit had commenced with a talent of their choosing, but due to unavoidable circumstances and disagreement with the talent, a quick replacement within 30 days was provided. The opportunity of replacement in 30 days, made the transition smooth and fast.
