Founder & CEO at Myota
It was our first time hiring remotely, and on a short deadline. It was great to have that kind of support.
Founded in 2020, Myota is a health-tech start-up that creates precision fibre mixes to treat and prevent chronic disease, alongside a digital health service to provide ongoing support and long-term management.
The goal of Myota is to specifically help people with chronic gut issues, like UBD or IBS. In the future, Myota aims to create products for all sorts of chronic diseases. Myota is currently growing its team to meet these future goals, but it faced challenges around wanting to access the global talent quickly and compliantly. They needed to hire new developers quickly in order to meet their aggressive growth goals, and thus searched for a solution to make it happen.
Although Myota had offices in London and Geneva, they had a hard time sourcing the right candidates to fill their open development positions. Instead, the Myota team found that Estonia had the right talent pool for them. Without having an entity in Estonia and not knowing anything about local employment laws and regulations, Myota wasn’t sure if hiring abroad would be the right option for them. They knew that at this point in time it was not viable to open an entity and instead chose to explore other options because the candidate was the perfect fit for the role. Myota decided to look for a trusted partner who would help them navigate compliance challenges when recruiting a new team member abroad.
When searching for a partner to help hire a developer in Estonia, Myota had one crucial requirement: it needed to be done fast. Lano’s Global Employment solution via its Employer of Record service offered them not only the option to hire remotely but also to meet their very tight deadline. Within a couple of hours of reaching out, Lano was able to present an offer to Myota. After discussing all employment and contract details for their new colleague, the hiring process could be started. In less than two weeks, their new engineer was completely onboarded onto the Myota team. Lano’s team, paired with their high quality service, ensured that the HR processes were seamless and that Myota’s aggressive timelines were met.
Since collaborating with Lano, Myota has the flexibility to onboard from a truly global talent pool and can hire full-time employees in more than 170 countries without having to worry about local laws, employment regulations, complex tax systems or international payroll. They always know they are in compliance with local laws and regulations and give their full time employees the correct benefits that they deserve. With Lano, Myota is able to focus on their business model and work with talent that they are confident will help them reach their goals.
