For Job Candidates

Preferred Method To Be Contacted By A Candidate: Email

Preferred Process For Following Up On Application: Email or LinkedIn.

Things That Impress You In A Candidate: Honesty, ambition, and positivity. Additionally, I love to see candidates who have spent time researching the opportunity and our company offering versus blindly hitting apply based on a description.

Things Candidates Must Include To Be Considered For Job: At a high level they have to include a resume that reflects experience aligned to the position for which they applied.

Things That Will Disqualify A Candidate From Getting Considered: Lack of passion and a poor attitude. Even if someone has ‘Rockstar’ hard skills in their domain a demonstrated lack of emotional intelligence is a deal breaker.

Can Candidates Apply For Multiple Positions And Not Get Penalized?: Yes

Recruiter’s Perspective

What’s your favorite quote? A single favorite quote is tough. How about this one? “Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.” Edmund Burke

What do you like to do in your free time? Cooking, reading, gardening, cycling, trying new beers, and spending time with my family.

In a sentence, why do you enjoy working at your company? I’m surrounded by intelligent people who have a sincere desire to build something game changing – it’s awesome!

In a sentence, how does your company have fun on a regular basis? Weekly socials, ad hoc events, quarterly company wide outings, social good initiatives – we do a lot.

In a sentence, how would you describe the employees at your company? Persions are a collaborative group of self-starters who respect each other as we strive to solve significant problems.
