Real-Time Visibility into Custom Metrics that Drive Recruiting Performance

Riviera Partners has a deep fascination with data. We are continually accumulating massive amounts of data (recruiting, candidate, client, VC) on a daily basis and we are always attempting to find new ways to not only understand it, but leverage it. As we've grown over the years, we've also been investing in technologies that can better help us to track, measure and understand this data. Recently Riviera partnered with the developer team at MaxHire to help give new insights to our recruiting methodologies. Together, we have implemented new analytics tools which have helped streamline our recruiting processes - read more about it on MaxHire's blog.

Startup Market Snapshot: San Francisco vs. The Rest

Nothing comes easy when you are running a tech startup - whether it's bringing your product to life, raising capital, finding talent, competing for market share, or any of the other thousands of endeavors, each facet comes with its own set of unique challenges. Because on our experience and unique perspective, we have recently been asked one specific question with growing frequency: "Where should I start my next startup?"

To help answer this question, we have taken a historical look at engineering candidate data in efforts to help growing startups determine where they should open an office. We have compiled some interesting factors about the Silicon Valley’s landscape that founders and CEO’s may want to consider before committing to their first (next) office space. Utilizing engineering candidate data from the past 18 months, we have outlined some interesting data points - and with the help of Cushman & Wakefield, we have included some very compelling real estate data, as well.
