AI-powered recruitment coordination start-up My Ally has made a big investment in its future by securing the services of former ZipRecruiter VP of Inside Sales for Existing Accounts, Lauren Delfino. Lauren joins My Ally with significant sales leadership and scaling experience that includes time spent at LivingSocial while the company was in “hyper-growth” mode. During her tenure with ZipRecruiter, Lauren architected a massive expansion of the inside sales team that included opening a cost-effective facility in Tempe, AZ, where she scaled the team to over one hundred reps.

Lauren states, “I was excited about the opportunity to join a company that’s focused on reducing the pain today’s recruitment organizations are facing when it comes to the labor-intensity of the recruitment coordination process. Countless hours spent on the scheduling and rescheduling of interviews keeps talent acquisition professionals from doing what they love and are great at — wooing and hiring top talent. My Ally’s technology-enabled solution presents a nearly immediate ROI for organizations both large and small who are looking to reduce time-to-fill and boost candidate conversion rate. I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and start building the sales structure necessary to bring the benefits of this game-changing product to efficiency-seeking companies around the world.”

The Silicon Valley-based company (which has an additional development-focused office in Hyderabad, India), has also secured advisory influence from a highly experienced HR Technology veteran. Russell Mikowski, a Ladders alum and current iCIMS Head of Sales, has joined the company’s advisory board. Interest in the company from professionals of this caliber is highly validating according to the company’s founder and CEO, Deepti Yenireddy.

“The fact that Lauren and Russell are excited about our mission and want to be a part of the My Ally story reinforces the thinking that there’s truly a role for AI to play in the landscape of HR Technology. The vast wealth of knowledge that these two individuals represent will help assure we are building products and functionalities that are truly needed by today’s recruitment professionals,” said Deepti.

My Ally’s AI-powered recruitment coordinator improves time-to-hire, increases conversion rate, and optimizes candidate experience by fully automating the scheduling and rescheduling of interviews with superhuman speed and accuracy. Their current client list includes such noteworthy brands as Zymergen, Hyperloop, and Exabeam.
