Mindhive Case Study

Mindhive is the world's first crowdsourced consultancy platform. Founder Bruce Muirhead and his team used Ribit to find the right young talent to grow their business.

Diversity of thought is vital for success in today's disruptive landscape and integral to the Mindhive value proposition. So naturally, the choice to hire students through Ribit was an easy one! With over 25,000 users on the platform, the diversity of skills, experience, age and culture made Ribit a perfect fit for the Mindhive team.

Mindhive made one job post on Ribit. Just 48 hours later, the first interviews were already yielding an impressive calibre of candidates. Mindhive's Ribit post attracted a wide range of expertise, from a second-year undergraduate to a Masters student on the threshold of graduation.

Ultimately, the Mindhive team settled on not one, but three outstanding candidates that they just couldn't turn down. What started as a search for a support role titled ‘Mindhive Operations’ led to the creation of a Media/PR Coordinator, Sales Coordinator and a Community-Building Coordinator.

All three of Mindhive’s new recruits have brought valuable expertise and fresh energy to the office. By using Ribit, Mindhive has helped ensure their team has the right mix of skills to help their business flourish.

We’ve used other job boards in the past and they’ve received some good traction. But the quality of the average candidate on Ribit was so much higher and much more relevant than other services we’ve used in the past.
