Company

Pymetrics are using gamification and AI to transform the way that companies hire, retain and develop their employees. Their SaaS-based, neuroscience-led assessments remove bias from the hiring process and help large enterprises to maximise the value of their human capital. The business is headquartered in New York and led by Founder-CEO Frida Polli, who has a background in Neuropsychology and Cognitive Sciences from MIT and Harvard.

Search Background

Following a fresh round of funding ($40m led by General Atlantic and with contribution from Khosla, Salesforce and Workday) Frida was looking to accelerate the growth of her European business and asked Erevena to assist Pymetrics in finding a new Managing Director EMEA.

Requirements

Pymetrics were looking for a senior, enterprise level, SaaS leader with deep experience of HR tech who could build a true pan-European business.

Result

Mikael Lindmark joined Pymetrics in March 2019 with an enviable track record of building HR-focused software companies in Europe. Prior to joining Pymetrics, he spent 14 years as VP EMEA at Fieldglass (acquired by SAP in 2014), building the business from the ground-up. He is also the former VP Sales EMEA at Saba Software.
