Event description

Description


This TechLunch will be about Hiring and being hired in tech. We will have a panel of 3 people with very different profiles and who all have interesting inputs about hiring. This event is open to all types of profiles working in tech companies and who are interested in the behind the scenes of hiring, and how to find the company that fits them the best. The topics we will discuss will be around:

  • How do tech companies make sure they stay attractive to candidates?

  • How can a developer select and identify companies they want to work with?

  • How, as a candidate, can you interview the company you are applying for?

  • What kind of questions should you ask to determine if a company has any red flags?

  • How to attract talent when you don’t have a recruiter in your company? How to hire?

We'll cover many more questions during this TechLunch. If you have any ideas, feel free to share them to julie[at]algolia.com.

Our panelists will be:

Emily Hayman, Solutions Engineer at Algolia

Emily is a Solutions Engineer at Algolia, and has been a developer for more than 7 years. She worked at several companies and went through different hiring processes. She will share her views and experience on these topics. Being a developer looking for a job can be quite an experience and Emily will share this with us.


Marc Lao, Lead Technical Recruiter at Datadog

Marc is the Team lead of the Tech recruiting team at Datadog. He will tell us everything about his experience reaching out to candidates, making them feel comfortable and making sure they are the best fit for the company, and vice-versa. Hiring technical profiles is a challenge and Marc will tell us all about how he tackles this responsibility every day.


Liam Boogar, Head of Brand Strategy at MadKudu

Liam joined the start-up MadKudu at the beginning of 2018 as Head of Brand Strategy. He was the first employee in Paris and one of his first goals was to build an engineering team in Paris. He'll explain the decisions he made and will share some tricks about opening a 5-person office in 10 weeks.


The panel moderator will be Marion Aguirre, Senior Tech Recruiter at Algolia.
