What our customer says:

Katie Evans,
Senior Talent Partner – Global Business Solutions at TikTok

“Matchr helped us close our roles in record time.  Through their transparent way of working and  communication it was an absolute pleasure to  work with them. There is no way that we could  have made the progress in hiring that we have in  the last few months without their help.”

The challenge   

TikTok needed to scale its sales and marketing teams across Europe rapidly. Before partnering with Matchr in 2020, TikTok’s internal teams were overstretched. With the phenomenal growth in the number of users (500 million active users per day in just 3 years), TikTok had to capitalize on this growth across multiple countries in Europe quickly.

The solution    

We joined TikTok with a team of 4 sourcers and 2 recruiters to help scale up the marketing and sales teams in the UK, Spain, and Italy. This meant, as well as reworking processes and hiring quickly to improve the candidate experience and help provide market data significantly.

The results    

We hired 28 candidates for TikTok in just 6 months. Due to our strong sourcing capabilities, we were able to build up a pipeline of candidates from companies like Spotify, Pinterest, and Google so rapidly that we were asked to slow down due to the limited number of interview slots on TikTok’s side.  

Due to our success and transparent way of working, it was a no-brainer for TikTok to ask us again the following year to support them with extra sourcing and recruitment capacity.  

After an internal referral from TikTok’s European team, we were asked to join TikTok’s EMEA team with a strong focus on Africa.
