Welcome to Prodator

We have successfully recruited salespeople to join our company and one of them showed us the huge potential in recruiting salespeople.
For two years, that was all we focused on until we discovered that the marketing agency route worked better than the staffing agency route.

We started recruiting for jobs through FB before FB allowed Job offers. We were one of the few agencies using Chatbots at a time when Chatbots were experiencing the biggest HYPE.

We had to convince our first clients that the best people weren’t actively looking for work. Luckily, there were enough fools who tried us, like Tomas Simek from Remax Delux or Sirius Finance.

We'll find you employees quickly and at half the price.

We are a third way for companies looking for a new way to recruit. Most companies are desperate because they don’t have enough candidates, especially for specialist roles. 90% of people are not actively looking for work. However, they are open to change if they are interested in the job opportunity and the recruitment process is playful and most importantly fun. We reach such people on the world’s largest job portal – Facebook and Instagram. Through automation, we save companies time and create the revolution of recruitment.

We're changing the lives of people who don't even know it.

People often spend more time at work than with their families, and although they are not happy at work, they prefer to go along with the stereotype and take a very long time before they decide to change. We help people to change. We help them make more money, discover unique work challenges that they enjoy more or create more free time. Recruiting using the Prodator method is more fun and innovative than searching for and rewriting a resume from several years ago, sending it out and hoping someone will respond.

Why is Prodator different?

We honor the idea: “Again and better”.
You may have already experienced the atmosphere of fear and constant criticism. Under pressure, you then make mistakes that lead to further negations. We know that mistakes are part of life. They move us. That’s why you don’t have to worry about being judged or a toxic environment. We live by being different. We live by constantly learning.

Growth & Education

We enjoy being one of the first to test new gadgets and methods that nobody in the Czechia uses or knows. We have 50% of our targeted training paid for by the company. This gives us an edge over the competition. At the same time, we realize that the most significant shift we are experiencing is stepping out of our comfort zone. This is what keeps us moving forward. Working at a startup sometimes means some discomfort. There’s chaos at times. Frequent change. But once we reach our goal, we tell ourselves that the journey was worth it.

Entertainment

“How do you see your job?”
“I don’t know, I have to enjoy it.”
“Oh, and what do we mean by that?”

Because everyone is fulfilled by something different. We primarily work on clients, and we work with clients that we enjoy. We try to do activities that recharge us. We look for people who enjoy their work. They are passionate and want to make a difference in the lives of people who don’t even know it.

The company is our second family

Czechs have been working for over 35 years. That’s a long time to worry about work, don’t you think? That’s why we like to spend time together outside of work. We’ll go to the gym together, have lunch or go to the Company Offsite. We share our work and personal experiences on the regular Daily Huddle or in chat. Why? Because sharing leads to connection. And that’s essential for us.

We work from anywhere

We are constantly faced with the fact that only a small number of Czech companies offer home office or remote collaboration. We take these benefits for granted. We know that we need to feel good during our work activities, so we don’t care whether it’s in the office, at home on the terrace or on the beach.

Automation

Nobody likes routine tasks. They bore us, they bring no value, no joy. That’s why we use automation for most tasks, which we create ourselves and save us time and energy.

We are having a dialogue

What is the main added value you get with us? Life. When it really is one for all and all for one. An individual is never more than a team. That’s what makes us feel better than corporate. With open feedback and regular annual meetings with the management on a personal basis, you know you are being heard.

Words of the founder

I don’t want to use people to build Prodator. I want to use Prodator to build people.

Sustained and large growth is a long-term crisis in a company. Prepare for it. As a startup, we are growing at rocket speeds in the high teens if not hundreds of percent per year and that comes at a cost. Are you willing to pay it?
