This venture funded enterprise data management software company needed to accelerate their early product development after they received funding. They wanted to hire an experienced product team to meet their launch date, compete in the market, and meet their projected growth.
The overall goal was to support the vision of the founders to develop world class software that would capture a growing market seeking enterprise software development and data management tools that would be complementary with major databases such as Oracle. The scope of the project was to build out the initial software product and deliver additional functionality over the coming years.
The GDI Team
The company selected GDI as the Talent Acquisition and Talent Management partner to build out the product team. The team included project managers, designers, developers, QA and PLM. GDI recruited and retained a team of 30 developers over the coming years of success for the company. This team had advanced skills in database and software development that were critical to the success of the product.
