5th Finger is a leading technology-enabled mobile agency with platforms and expertise specifically tailored for the retail and healthcare industries.


Australian-born 5th Finger burst onto the Silicon Valley scene in 2007 with big plans to conquer the U.S. market but with no expertise or knowledge on how to hire a local team.

MitchelLake stepped in, helping to put their entire U.S. team in place over a five year period – a team that the highly successful customer relationship agency, Merkle, felt were so strong, they acquired the company.

We’ve also built and refined their recruitment process and educated the founding Australian team on hiring in the U.S. as well as upskilling many of the people we placed who then became hiring managers. In addition, we have introduced them to other key partners and shared our local knowledge and networks.


  • Appointment of entire US team over a five-year period
  • Every 5th Finger employee except for two of the founding team is a MitchelLake placement
  • Created hiring framework and educated hiring team on best practice
