Within five weeks we were able to provide a strong shortlist of candidates. LeydenJar were quick to move with initial video calls with the candidates; a full day interview followed across their laboratory and HQ in Leiden, as well as at their production facility in Eindhoven. This gave the candidates a full insight into the company, meeting the senior management, team members and external advisors.
An offer followed for the preferred candidate, Yiseop Ahn, shortly after. As the candidate is a Korean national, the Hyperion team continued to provide support whilst LeydenJar managed the process of securing a visa. Soon after starting the Director of Battery Development role, Yiseop Ahn was quickly promoted to the CTO position.
