Executive Summary

Shiprocket is India’s leading tech-enabled logistics solution. The software platform offers automated shipping and acts as an aggregator. Users can ship goods anywhere across the world using top courier companies.
As a part of business expansion plans, Shiprocket wanted to build a remote team with diverse talent from outside of India. AllRemote helped them accomplish this objective successfully.
The company’s primary aim was to acquire a talent pool that not only satisfies the technical requirements but also fits into the company’s fast-growth culture. More importantly, the budget was tightly capped as compared to the geographical benchmarks. Other objectives included sourcing candidates who work in a +-5 hours time zone overlap with India, have top-level English proficiency and were able to adapt to remote work culture rapidly.

The Challenge

Cracking the Eastern Europe Talent Pool for an Indian Brand

  • Tight Budget cap
  • Multilingual candidates
  • Matching time zone overlap
