PokerStars Perspective

PokerStars is a global leader in the iGaming space. As part of our rapid business growth, we recently expanded our hub in the UK where we quickly needed to staff up with a focus on tech roles.
We engaged Link Humans who have proved to be an indispensable partner for activating our employer brand to attract the right talent. After an onboarding phase, we have seen excellent results; our application levels have doubled, crucially with the same quality of candidates.

Working with the team at Link Humans is a pleasure and they have a real can-do attitude to service. If you’re looking for an international team that can handle both strategy, and respond to quick tactical changes, Link Humans should be your agency of choice.

Results

  • The number of qualified applications to PokerStars has doubled.
  • Crucially, the quality of candidates has stayed the same after the increase.
  • Awareness of PokerStars as an employer has increased dramatically.
  • PokerStars is becoming a destination employer for tech talent in Bulgaria.
