Their story

With its head office in Adelaide, Australia, LIFELENZ uses machine learning to analyse and optimise workforce rostering and compliance.

Launched in 2017, this software uses artificial intelligence to forecast sales with less than a single-digit percentage error margin and ensures businesses are staffed appropriately and people are working in the right roles so that there are no scheduling conflicts.

LIFELENZ  has now signed up most of the big-name fast-food chains in the US as clients, and its software is used by hundreds of thousands of people a day and scaling rapidly.


Their needs

With a Series B round raising $US32 million ($45 million) in investment, LIFELENZ has been going through a period of massive growth and has required skilled tech talent to facilitate this.

In a small local market, exacerbated by slowed skilled migration due to COVID and increased global demand for good tech candidates, LIFELENZ called on Talent and their knowledge and relationships with candidates in the marketplace to fill these hard-to-place roles.

Our expertise was also needed when reworking recruitment processes with a focus on hiring quickly and adapting to increased premiums in this market. LIFELENZ had a great understanding of what skills it required but relied on Talent to make roles attractive in the market through job ads and marketing.  

With premium talent in demand, LIFELENZ needed to adapt and operate at pace. The knowledge supplied by Talent that often a candidate is holding or considering two or three other offers has helped LIFELENZ to respond and go after desired candidates more assertively to secure the best.

Our solution

Knowledge of and connections in the market, on top of Talent’s extensive candidate database and sourcing strategies enabled the best talent to be provided to LIFELENZ. Ken Leong, General Manager Australia, was employee number two at LIFELENZ after the founding group and had worked with Talent previously as a contractor himself, so when it came to finding a recruitment partner, he knew there was only one company for the job.

Candidates were presented based on career interests, location, career history, personality profiles and skills match. Above all, they had to align to the values of LIFELENZ. Although now in the SME phase, Talent has been working with LIFELENZ since it was a start-up when the brand was building a reputable name.

With a long history in the Adelaide market, the Talent team source candidates through leveraging relationships with past connections and actively headhunted candidates with the specific skills required.

  • The candidates coming through Talent have been extremely reflective of how our teams have been shaped. Talent knows the specific qualities we are looking for in our people, curiosity and ambition are valued and he always offers us a great variety of candidates with these qualities from all backgrounds; because of this we do have good diversity and a pretty good gender split in our organisation.
