Pixalate Case Study



About the project

A successful and fast-growing US technology business with offices in LA, New York and San Francisco engaged with EllisKnight International Recruitment to support their plans to open a new office in London as their EMEA European Head Office. This office would include teams that would cover Technical, Sales, Customer Success, Marketing and Operations.

EllisKnight were tasked with presenting information about the UK employment market, salary benchmarking, competitor analysis and building a pipeline of the best talent around with the right sector experience.



The challenges with this project are all around communication:

  • Being able to discuss the project requirements in detail with the Hiring Managers.
  • Working across different time zones.
  • Sharing information and updates.
  • Skills testing.
  • Presenting candidates in the best possible light.



 EllisKnight used technology to manage this project effectively, including:

  • Google Hangouts for update calls with Hiring Managers.
  • Live Google Sheets to share live updates on each project.
  • Remote skills testing.
  • Hinterview – video interviews added to Applicant Tracking System (ATS) for the client to review in their own time.



By using technology, EllisKnight were successful in introducing candidates without the need for Hiring Managers in the US meeting with candidates face-to-face; saving time and money.




 "I applied to a role in London that is with a US technology company and the Hiring Manager is based in LA, California.The interview process included a video interview with a Recruiter, online technical tests and then a detailed technical interview with the CTO in America using Google Hangouts – I am now working from home until the new London office is ready"
