Nowadays, hiring quality senior leadership can take several months. With Pave, the process took 8 weeks from beginning to end.
Founder & CEO
I was surprised at how quickly we were able to find someone perfect for the role. I think it only took one month.
Co-Founder & CFO/COO
Wayne and the Pave team have acted as true partners to our business at Tango. Starting on day one, they invested in understanding our business and decision-making process, and how that influenced our designs. From that point forward, Wayne's coaching anchored on our priorities (moving fast and staying focused) as opposed to simply deferring to his experiences. Our team was in a better position to deliver a killer product within just one month of working with Wayne and Pave.
Pave delivered a meaningful choice of qualified candidates and a smooth process that filled multiple available positions - UX/UI, PM, Interns - at lightning speed.
I would strongly recommend Pave to other startups. We were able to meet high quality candidates we've never seen before, and quickly. The Pave team helped facilitate our interview process and how we were gauging the candidates with equity.
Pave is a well oiled recruiting machine, and the speed is hard to keep up with. They do the heavy lifting, and make it easy to hire great talent.
Pave augmented our engineering team, and exceeded our delivery expectations. They upgraded our website, CMS, and product front-end with speed, agility, and latest best practices. I’d recommend them, and collaborate again in the future.
Creating Evidation's design system with Pave has been a career highlight. They deliver value fast, and are expert software & brand designers. They’re wonderful to work with, and pivot easily with scope changes. We couldn't have gotten to where we are without our Pave partnership.
Chief Marketing and Design Officer
Pave accelerated the creation of our new brand with their principled and iterative approach to design. They helped us focus on the most important use cases and avoid a lot of subjective debate that would have slowed us down. Wayne and his team worked through dozens of explorations, led stakeholder reviews and even developed a design kit for use across the company. Brand work is often slow and it can be hard to reach a consensus. Pave's process cut through that and helped us cover a lot of ground quickly.
Our company recently engaged Wayne and his team to assist with an urgent mobile & web redesign. Not only was his team highly capable and knowledgeable, they exceeded our expectations. We look forward to working with them again on a future project.
Wayne and Vanessa were great partners to work with and brought both creativity and best practices from years of experience with designing products.
Pave is unmatched in their quality and agility of upleveling brands. They are experts in their craft, bringing beautiful creative design into the world of scalable efficiency. The design system they created for Mahana unlocks meaningful scale advantages. We are thankful for Pave's partnership and expertise. Highly recommend.
VP of Brand Marketing
Everyone on the Pave team is incredibly talented. They worked with us over several months to create beautiful high fidelity illustrations, and update our iconography. This was all while staying true to our existing brand. Wayne and his team are so thoughtful about presenting their designs and we fully trusted them during every step of the process. They are so great to work with and I’m impressed at how much we accomplished together in such a short time.
Pave helped us hire high-performing interns in record time. We strongly recommend Pave to any early stage company looking to build its intern program. We’ll definitely look to Pave as we grow!
Pave executed quickly, provided quality candidates. Based on the experience so far I would recommend them to other startups.
Pave has been an invaluable ally in finding and onboarding exceptionally talented summer interns for us. We have placed most of our interns through them and will continue to do so in the future.
Pave got us fantastic talent immediately. They have access to excellent students. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat.
Wayne and the Pave team guided me through the most seamless and transparent hiring process I’ve ever experienced. Thanks to Pave’s responsive communication and feedback, my interview process was a valuable learning experience that helped me find a fantastic company and job fit in record time. Wayne’s continued mentorship after my hire has been a tremendous resource for my early-career growth as a product designer.
Wayne’s mentorship has accelerated my career trajectory. I interned on Wayne’s team in 2019, and he taught me how to navigate a large org, influence decision makers, and deliver impact, fast. After my internship, Wayne boosted my confidence and job search expectations. We updated my resume, designed a portfolio, and interview prepped for 2 months. This resulted in an APM job offer at Atlassian, where I was the 1st onsite hire of 3k applicants. Wayne’s still a tremendous mentor, friend, and I’m grateful for his support.
Pave connected me to Wayne where I was able to work as a design intern and gain valuable experience. Wayne also worked with me to improve my portfolio which helped me land a full-time design role at Accenture.
After losing an internship due to COVID, Wayne helped me find a role within a couple of weeks at Saltwater VC. Wayne introduced me to multiple design opportunities during that summer that gave me the experience I needed to eventually land internships at Wish and Microsoft.
I am extremely grateful to Wayne and Pave for helping connect me to my summer internship.
Wayne taught me a lot about the job admissions process. I learned all the aspects of the interview process and about the timeline. When the time came for me to prepare for the job process, I was ahead of the timeline and prepared. I was also surrounded by and had access to other product management interns, high achieving tech students, and accomplished professionals that I learned a lot from. I worked as an intern at Pave. My time at Pave was very educational and filled with valuable mentorship. I was given a lot of independence, which allowed me to grow and be pushed out of my comfort zone.
Allison Sullivan Wu
My time at Pave was incredibly valuable. Wayne and Jacob taught me valuable skills throughout my internship that prepared me for full time recruiting. They also gave me great context on what companies look for when hiring candidates. This helped me land a job at Google, and will surely help me throughout my career.
I love Pave. I met lots of helpful students, learned new coding skills, and landed a remote job in Glasgow.
Javier Alcántara García
I was overwhelmed by trying to navigate the internship landscape with no prior experience. Thanks to Pave, I found an internship which I love and was able to explore my passion for data science.
Pave connected me with a great mentor working in the healthcare industry which I aimed to break in. We spent time talking about my career goals and how to achieve them. When real opportunities arise, she gave me insightful advice on how to grab them in an efficient manner without sacrificing work-life balance. She also connected me with another woman in tech to share her experience applying for a job and handling difficult situations in male-dominated workplace. My mentor also helped to revise my resume which then received much more attention from potential employers. Pave then offered me a quantitative research intern position. My manager at Pave was not solely a manager, she's a dedicated mentor from whom I learned a lot about study design and sentimental data analysis. I feel grateful for what Pave has offered me. I believe the mentorship and internship experiences contribute greatly to my current full time offer as a research analyst. Thank you, Pave!
