AppDynamics

It is remarkable to observe AppDynamics drastic growth. The company created history by growing to atleast close to 800 employees within 7 years. For further improvement, the company seeked the help of Entelo. AppDynamics utilized Entelo to its fullest by taking advantage of Entelo’s predictive analytics in order to narrow the field to the most receptive candidates.

“Being in the right place at the right time is essential,” explains Luan Lam, VP of Global Talent Acquisition. “No one else offers the predictive analytics that Entelo does. It gives our team a much better chance of connecting with a candidate when he or she is likely to be open to a new opportunity.”

To further boost the likelihood of getting noticed, AppDynamics uses Entelo’s email tracking tool. They had previously relied on LinkedIn InMails to connect with candidates, but found that response rates were lower than they wanted. “There is virtually zero return on Linkedin messages on my Ruby [programming skill] search,” notes Christine Alluise, Senior Technical Recruiter. “Using Entelo, I have already received email responses this week.” Overall, AppDynamics has seen a 15% uptick in response rates. Raising the Bar on Recruiting Operations Streamlining the communications process — while still preserving the feel of a human touch — is a classic recruiting challenge. AppDynamics uses Entelo to automate the coordination and tracking of hundreds of candidate emails — letting them move away from tedious Excel spreadsheets. They also use Entelo’s data-rich candidate profiles to deepen the human connection: “Entelo helps me make my messages richer and filled with more personal details,” says Jesse Robinson, Senior Technical Recruiter. Each recruiter has a weekly candidate quota that he or she must meet, and Entelo is a key part of that. According to Lam, Entelo has increased their candidate pipeline by 20%. Because of this impact, Lam only grants seats to the ones who are using the tool to its fullest potential. He also has creative way of ensuring success: “On a weekly basis, I have a competition on who the top three users of Entelo are. That’s because I know how much more productive it’ll make my recruiters,” says Lam.

Public-spiritedness

It was in the year 2008 that approximately 7% of middle school girls reported that computer engineering is an advisable career. CodeEd is a charitable organization that caters to underserved communities, starting from middle school.  

They partner with schools and programs that serve low-income girls and provide them with volunteer teachers, computer science course offerings, and computers to work with.

Students are encouraged to work on tangible projects with all exercises focused on building fun additions to their ongoing work. This approach enables students to see the fruits of their labor as they work, reinforcing the impact of their learning. Students enjoy programming and building, and are able to see the completion of these projects as their own reward.

Entelo quotes, “For each new hire made with Entelo, we donate one year’s worth of coding instruction to a young woman in the Code Ed program.”
