Atlanta Small Business Network: How Melissa Davis Built Elev8 Hire Solutions Company Around Atlanta’s Booming Tech Industry

Who We Are

Melissa Davis

Chief Executive Officer

I created Elev8 to be the next generation recruiting solution for today’s IT startups and innovative growth organizations. These hires—the lifeblood of technical advantage for modern businesses—can be exceptionally hard to find and fit into your organization.

Using my previous experience in recruiting, we’ve turned the profession on its head. First, we build on old-fashioned networking using technology—including AI—to source passive talent lurking in technology communities like Github or Kaggle. Next, we expanded the process of evaluating IT skills to identify and understand the personalities and goals of each candidate. This proven process—the Elev8 Talent Evaluator—delivers a more holistic match for every candidate we present. 

With candidates happier in their new roles, and clients loving the talent they’ve added, we have placed over 1,000 technology hires with an outstanding 96% retention rate.
