Here’s how they work and how they empower high volume BDR hiring for all stages of companies.

What To Do When Live Video Interviews Don’t Work Anymore

You were so excited to run a remote hiring process. ‍ Then you realized your day would be the same, just on Zoom instead of on the phone. ‍ Suddenly, remote video interviewing felt more constricting than a phone call from an office because you had to stare at a screen all day.

As a founder, there are a few company milestones that bring incredible joy. Fundraising is often one of them (Willo raised a Seed round in 2021 that I’m proud of).
