Big Data Analytics Startup Serendipity Retains Millennium Search


Palo Alto Based Data Company Partners with Technology Recruiting Firm to Expand Team

Serendipity, a data analytics startup in the Bay Area, is expanding its team. The company has partnered with Millennium Search, an executive recruiting firm for software startups, to jump-start their recruiting efforts.

Serendipity is a big data analytics company aimed at removing the need for data scientists from the analysis of large data sets. Currently in stealth, the Palo Alto based company hopes to put the power of data in the hands of users, and create a platform that successfully ‘consumerizes analytics.’ With a focus on a strong user interface and a simplified visualization of analyzed data, Serendipity will allow the everyday user to garner the powerful insights that large data sets provide.


Mare Lucas is COO of Serendipity, and is also CMO of GCE Cloud, the parent company of the data analytics startup.

“We’ve all seen the explosion of innovation in the consumer space – from mobile applications that deliver incredible user experiences through new devices that we can wear,” says Lucas.  “ It’s time we look to reinvent the enterprise – and Serendipity is helping to lead that charge.”

“Data analytics is a space that is growing rapidly right now,” says Amish Shah, CEO and founder of Millennium Search. “Mare and her team are working hard to build what I am confident will be a top company in the space. We are excited to be working with them.”

Serendipity partnered with Millennium Search, a technology recruiting firm focused on growing software companies, to help jumpstart their recruiting efforts. Serendipity is ramping up the development of their product for launch, and brought on Millennium Search to help scale their development team. Prior to partnering with the data analytics startup, Millennium Search was retained to fill key positions at Serendipity’s parent company, GCE Cloud.

“It sounds like a cliche, but when you are in a startup, you are pushing everyday to get to that first version. You can’t absorb latency anywhere in your process. Millennium Search gets that and moves at my pace; maybe faster,“ says Lucas about  Millennium Search. “From the quick response to my initial inquiry, to the professionalism of the recruiting team, they’ve helped me scale up my team at the speed I need. Their grasp of the technology space clearly comes across in the quality and fit of the candidates that they source.”

“Mare is a true professional,” says Shah. “She knows what she needs, and pulls the trigger quickly for the right candidates. In this market for top talent, you have to move fast with people. Mare and her team at Serendipity understand that well.”
