    1. Kick-off & Screening

    A kick-off call with DriSteem was held to discuss their ideal candidate profile. For the client, the ideal candidate needed a strong technical background, fluency in English and German, and relevant industry experience.

    A hybrid approach of passive and active recruitment was used to establish a talent pool of about 120 candidates, who were then screened and then interviewed .

    2. Interviews


    The second round of interviews involved the direct supervisor and multiple hiring team members, each focusing on different aspects of the job to ensure a thorough evaluation.  

    For DriSteem, the third round required candidates to present a 30-60-90-day plan to the client's president, allowing for in-depth discussion of strategy and role expectations.
