Swedish electric scooter company, Voi, boosts rapid growth with Teamtailor

Since Voi's inception in 2018, their primary aim has been to grow their workforce to manage the flourishing trend of urban travel. And that's exactly what they've done. With the introduction of Teamtailor, Voi have increased company size drastically year on year, whilst showcasing the 'Voi vibe' on their unique career site.

As a fast-growing European electric scooter company based in Sweden, Voi is rapidly changing the way we commute in urban areas, simply by scanning a QR code. Voi now operates in more than 50 cities across 11 countries and has over 6 million regular users. Their goal is to give power to citizens in urban areas by creating the freedom of movement in a safe, accessible and environmentally friendly way. The Voi vibe "At Voi, you are a part of a team and a family. We know that some of the greatest creations in human history were built by a group, not a single individual".

Challenges

During Voi's inception in 2018, they started using Teamtailor in order to fulfil their primary goal of growing exponentially. Due to the nature of Teamtailor's system, Voi saw it as a solution perfect for SMBs. This required hiring employees who had experience in using applicant tracking systems and therefore training their teams to use the system. Hiring managers would ensure key features such as triggers were being fully utilised in the recruitment process. As a data-driven company, Voi were also looking to improve reporting capabilities and track key recruitment statistics.

"I have been so impressed with Teamtailor. We are a hyper growth company and TT have been able to sustain our growth and help us improve our processes to ensure efficiency and effectively hire talent to timescales. The team is super happy with the platform as well as the customer service (1st class response time)!"

- Steve Jacobs, People and Talent Leader at Voi

Results

After implementing Teamtailor, Voi have developed an 'own it' culture where hiring managers have pride in taking responsibility for their respective jobs, avoiding crossovers and ensuring all candidate information is accessible and stored efficiently. In 2021, Voi now have an impressive 57,000 candidates in their database which is growing rapidly. Using Teamtailor has eased remote recruiting for Voi, after hiring 197 people in 2020, a 65% increase in their overall workforce that takes the total number of employees to almost 500.

Employer branding has also been a major focal point for Voi and a strong contributor to their rapid growth. They have constructed a modern and engaging career site, allowing them to showcase both their frontline and office staff, evoking 'the Voi vibe'. With 50 nationalities that make up Voi's workforce, the aim now is to build on their D&I initiatives with Teamtailor's anonymous hiring feature.
