Common Questions & Answers

How secure is it to work with candidates abroad?

We’ve scaled out HIPAA and SOC2 compliant teams in the past and know what it takes to keep your data safe. We can help you set up privacy best practices depending on your industry, including:

  • Installing remote device management software - this prevents your hires from downloading applications that might hold viruses 
  • Password management – Using tools like OnePassword and LastPass instead of sharing directly 
  • Compliance training – Helping you set up HIPAA compliance training for all of your employees

How soon can we start working with a hire?

It takes us between 10-14 business days to source and vet candidates before we send them to you for a final interview. We don’t send candidates over from a general pool, and instead run a curated sourcing process based on the needs you mention on our initial call. This allows us to poach the best candidates based on your industry and needs.

How should I think about hiring part-time vs full time?

Hire full time to increase your long term retention. We’ve found that the best operators are more willing to work full time for your company. They still need to pay their bills and support their families back home, and when hired part time will often need to have one or two additional jobs to do so.

At Catena, we only work with candidates that truly see themselves growing within our client’s businesses, and weed out candidates that we notice treat their roles like gig jobs. We only accept the best hires internationally, and to do so only work with candidates that want to scale with your company.

Do your hires work in US or EU timezones?

Yes. All of our candidates work whichever hours your local team does (e.g. EST, PST, CET). Although they’re distributed across the world, they find the opportunity to work and grow in a scaling company exciting and are willing to make that trade off for the higher growth and compensation that a US or EU based company provides. 

We’ve generally seen teams be most successful when working at the same timezone as their US and EU counterparts and recommend having your hires work in the same timezone. It makes it easier for you to communicate and manage projects, and also helps your hires feel like a part of your team instead of in some back office.

What kind of hires does Catena specialize in?

We built the foundations of our business helping venture backed founders hire executive assistants who functioned as chief of staffs to them. Since then, we’ve set up between 10-60 person teams across the operations, marketing, sales, and finance orgs of companies with a 90% 1-year retention rate.

  • Operations: Executive Assistant, Customer Support Representative, Business Development Associate, Data Entry Analysts
  • Marketing: Content Writer, Marketing Manager, Social Media Manager
  • Sales: Business Development Representative, Account Manager
  • Finance: Accountant, Bookkeeper, Financial Analyst
