This year our Recruiting group has decided to be a part of SxSW.
Whereas the Rackspace booth would typically be filled with individuals geared toward new client development opportunities, this year we decided to have a number of members from our Recruiting team out to meet the crowd.
It’s become increasingly obvious to us that pockets of talent exist across the country (and world for that matter) in places other than job fairs and job boards. Our next superstar Software Developer may just be wandering around the convention center at SxSW learning about new trends and technologies – we want to meet YOU and make you a Racker!
Over the course of the next few days, our Recruiters will be scouring SxSW for top talent. If you are interested in chatting with a recruiter from our team, this would be a good opportunity to stop by and get acquainted.
To make it easier, I want to introduce a few members of our team that will be here:
Roxanne Molina – Recruiter
Twitter Name: @roxymolina
Oren David – Technical Recruiter
Twitter Name: @odavid1
Scott McCamish – Recruiter
Twitter Name: @scottmccam
Taryn Little – Recruiter
Twitter Name: @tarynLIL
Paul Norman – Director of Recruiting
Twitter Name: @pmnorman
Michael Long – Global Talent Scout
Twitter Name: @theredrecruiter
Take a look at their profiles on Twitter so that you can put a name with a face!
If you run out of time to meet up with us during the trade show, be sure to find one of us during the Rackspace Revolution party at Maggie Mae’s on Monday night! We will all be wearing shirts that say “Team Racker Talent” on the back.
SxSW is a fun and interesting event to attend. There is a ton of positive energy on the streets and in the sessions!
We hope that everyone has a great time and that we get to meet you in the very near future.
Are you attending SxSW? What have your impressions been thus far?
