  • 5mins with Third Space Auto

    We catch up with Arshia Gratiot, Director of Technology Applications at Third Space Auto – one of the ten Discovering Start-Ups Competition finalists, pictured above. Are you finding it tricky to recruit talent? We are an early-stage startup so we don’t have deep pockets. This means that our choice of talent is often relegated to fresh graduates and / or interns which is great because one of our core principles is to train, mentor and give graduates and talented individuals a leg up. But even in this case the people who do come on board have to also pay their bills so often times are working second jobs so can’t be expected to give 110% which is what is necessary at this stage. Often times we need experienced people who can help guide and shape the product as we don’t have the liberty of time but we can’t afford them. Its tricky because investors base their decisions to go with you or not (at least at this stage) on the quality of the team so getting the right people on.board is critical. When we can’t afford them it does feel like we’re stuck between a rock and a hard place. The other challenge has been in recruiting qualified talent for our needs as they are very specialised. We need software engineers in the areas of machine learning and automotive software development. It’s been hard because we are competing with the likes of Jaguar Land Rover, Delphi etc for automotive engineering talent and  Entrepreneur first and Google for machine learning developers. Far and few in London and beyond. It’s been an a combination of leading through personality and luck that we were able to find the right development team, based in Romania and ex-collegues who have been advising us along the way.
