global locations

Based in San Francisco, Aktana helps life science companies commercialise their products by getting the most out of artificial intelligence (AI).

Their platform uses machine learning algorithms to enable marketing and sales teams to optimize their engagement with
prescribing physicians. Aktana supports half of the top 20 pharmaceutical companies worldwide with global offices located in San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, London, Barcelona,
Tokyo, Osaka, Shanghai. Aktana’s Co-Founder is named among 100 Most Inspiring People in Life Sciences by PharmaVoice 2020.

Aktana are headquartered in San Francisco and were looking to expand further into Europe, growing their Customer Success department.


They required some really technical candidates, alongside people who could help ramp up their growth, win business and build a European hub.

Despite working with some local agencies, Aktana were having trouble finding candidates of their required calibre to fill their business critical roles, made more difficult by their headquarters being located in the USA. They needed a recruitment partner who they could work closely with and who would become an extension of their internal talent team.


Solutions Driven provided Aktana with six suitable
candidates who fit their desired criteria within three weeks.

Following an introduction through a mutual contact,
Aktana began talking to the Solutions Driven team who
had experience of hiring in their location and industry.
They were quickly reassured that Solutions Driven
could fill their roles.

Through forensic investigation of the passive market and Solutions Driven’s unique 6S and 6F processes the whole process was completed within eight weeks.

The initial partnership was so successful that Aktana and
Solutions Driven then entered into a long-term relationship.

To date, Solutions Driven have successfully placed 88 hires in the US, Europe, and Asia, across Customer Success, Key Account Management, Engineering, and Analytics.

“The Solutions Driven team demonstrates exceptional diligence in meeting our recruiting needs. Understanding our culture is as important as our skill requirements, and the team is sensitive
and gifted at this, shaping a very positive candidate experience.”
