ByteDance: Expanding Into New Industries

For companies wanting to increase their market share and grow into new industries effective hiring is essential. Candidates with the right skills will create a positive company culture, drive sales and position the company as a leader in the industry. Hiring is multifaceted and requires careful consideration. The wrong hiring process may result in underperforming employees and a waste of time, money, and resources.

Our success in helping TikTok grow allowed ByteDance (TikTok’s parent company) to realize the importance of effective hiring. While we still did and continue to support TikTok and ByteDance’s rapid growth, ByteDance began wanting to expand its services as well.

In 2021 ByteDance which had phenomenal success with apps like TikTok was interested in expanding into new markets. Wanting to expand into other international markets and industries like VR/AR they asked us to help them strategize how they should create and structure their new teams, their functions, and who to hire.

Even though ByteDance was not familiar with this industry, with our help we were able to create a VR team for them to not only expand them into a new market but create additional opportunities and revenue at the same time.

We utilized our organizational charts, market research, and rich database to help ByteDance design and structure its teams. This was an essential first step because it helped lay the groundwork for what positions and teams ByteDance needed. With our analytic and consulting expertise, we were able to advise ByteDance on how to restructure their company and expansion plans. From there we helped recruit and higher senior level heads of engineering, analytics, design, and security as well as many others. This is the essential framework that we built to drive ByteDances success.
Hiring is more than recruiting a new employee, it is about building a new team. In the world of quickly growing startups and tech giants, hiring is becoming as important as a companies business model. In some cases like with ByteDance hiring and recruiting is at the heart of their business model.
