As they set their sights on talent acquisition, they sought out seasoned professionals to join their ranks in Dubai (HQ) or other thriving tech hubs such as Pakistan, Lebanon, or Egypt.

With access to ANSR’s proprietary AI-powered fitment engine and end-to-end hiring solution, they were able to hire AI, ML, security, and DevOps professionals from top product companies, resulting in annual savings of $200,000.
