Hiring key roles for a micro-mobility start-up
Bikeep is building a network of smart bike stations, where users can lock their bikes securely, charge their e-bikes, and grab rental bikes.
The solution helps combat bike theft in areas where it has become a considerable problem. With user interactions taking place through a mobile app, Bikeep stations are connected to the internet, installed with sensors, a surveillance camera, and a loudspeaker alarm, making them a reliable solution.
Since 2013, Bikeep has installed its stations in 21 countries, such as the USA, New Zealand, Estonia, Belgium, the Netherlands, and more.
The challenge of the recruitment project
Hiring for cultural fit
Our focus has been to headhunt local candidates. Heveli has conducted screenings with candidates to assess their fit with Bikeep, both skill and personality-wise. During screenings, it’s been important that the candidates are able to demonstrate their interest in micro-mobility, as well as show how they can bring value to the company. Throughout the process, Bikeep has valued candidates who are self-starters and able to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the table.
