Launched in 2019 in London, U.K., Juno inspires human-centric workplaces by connecting people to better benefits choices. Rather than prescribing rigid workplace wellbeing options and benefits, Juno empowers employees to opt into programs, benefits, and rewards that work for them. Juno partnered with Oyster to take advantage of the global talent pool and accelerate their growth. With Oyster, they’ve transitioned from having no capability to hire global workers, to hiring a thriving team of borderless talent in a short space of time.
Before Oyster, Juno wasn’t able to tap into the global talent pool.
Juno needed to find diverse talent quickly, but the minefield of hiring distributed workers across jurisdictions was too complex. Without the experience or expertise to even approach global hiring, Juno was left with no way to expand their team overseas. Overwhelmed , Juno did not even consider global talent to be a viable option.
“Without Oyster, I don't even think I would even consider hiring internationally. Oyster has made it so easy that it's become a viable part of our business strategies.” Ally Fekaiki, CEO and founder of Juno
Oyster seamlessly integrates with Juno to make global hiring fast and intuitive.
Oyster and Juno’s relationship began when Oyster partnered with Juno to provide Oyster own employees with valuable localized benefits, including a rich array of programs and wellbeing options. In turn, Juno decided to work with Oyster to start building their global, diverse team. For Juno, starting up with Oyster was easy. It only took a few minutes to input basic information about their team members, and Oyster handled the rest. With Oyster’s platform, Juno has hired in the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, and Israel, and is considering hires from all over the world from their London HQ. Oyster’s robust legal team eliminated the intricate challenges of hiring across multiple jurisdictions and removed the compliance headaches preventing Juno from even considering global employment as an option. And with Oyster’s fast onboarding process, intuitive UI, and supportive team, employment across borders has become a breeze for Juno.
“Once all of the paperwork is done, each step is so well described and so well documented that you know what's next. The onboarding couldn't be quicker. It's incredible.” Ally Fekaiki, CEO and founder of Juno
Juno can hire 3-4 employees in a single day with Oyster’s platform
The self-service nature of Oyster’s global employment platform makes hiring easy and fast. Now Juno can bring on new international team members in as little as two minutes. “I strongly believe that talent is borderless and that there is a big limitation to only hiring in your city or in your country. We hire people in the Netherlands, in Portugal, in Spain. We're looking at people in South America. We're looking at people all around the world.” Ally Fekaiki, CEO and founder of Juno With easy access to the global talent pool through Oyster, Juno has been able to bring in an influx of diverse, talented employees from multiple countries. For Juno, hiring is no longer a case of “filling gaps.” It’s an opportunity to seek dynamic talent without being limited by borders. Working with Oyster empowers Juno to make better hiring decisions and widens their access to knowledgeable, skilled employees. This leaves Juno in a stronger position to grow their team in 2022 and beyond.
“It's not just a tool. It's not just a platform. It's a piece of the way we do business, essentially, because it seamlessly integrates with our hiring. It seamlessly integrates with our tech stack. But also, they inspire us and encourage us to look outside of the borders that we're in.” Ally Fekaiki, CEO and founder of Juno
What does the future look like?
As Juno expands, they’ll continue to leverage Oyster’s platform to grow their talented team of international workers. Oyster’s unrivalled country coverage means Juno can hire talented employees from almost anywhere, without restriction. “What I'm most excited about in the future for Oyster and our relationship, first and foremost, is we trust them. And I feel like having that trust means that they have so much opportunity to scale their services and offer new products and services.” Juno has undergone a dramatic shift in their approach to international hiring, going from it seeming impossible, to it being a core part of their business. This means hiring decisions aren’t influenced or hindered by geography—every talented candidate can be a part of Juno’s mission to bring valuable, personalized benefits programs to team members everywhere. Juno’s partnership with Oyster goes from strength to strength. There’s a bright future ahead for Juno as they continue to scale, working closely with Oyster to improve the world of work for their employees, customers, and partners alike.
“I think the Oyster team is so mission driven that they really nurture other businesses like ours that have been also trying to push boundaries in the workplace.” Ally Fekaiki, CEO and founder of Juno
