Our client's vision is a public market that supports investment, experimentation and scaling that companies can use to find continuous success; one that can open the way for innovation and value creation far into the future.
This is an opportunity to join the nation’s newest stock exchange at a critical time in its development and serve as our first IT Engineer.
You will develop and manage our IT system; recommend, document, and implement solutions to improve our IT environment; take ownership of IT problems, triage, and find solutions to improve processes; and introduce relevant new technology. You will have the opportunity to establish the foundation of our IT practices, make our processes more efficient, and ensure our compliance in a highly regulated environment.
Our client's team is small, and you will work closely with your colleagues on teams throughout the business. Every member of our team is a full participant, and actively engaged in the design and evolution of our new stock exchange. They are a fast-moving startup, and now a regulated national securities exchange, but we also prioritize taking advantage of the efficiencies of a small team to have a disproportionate impact.
Ideal Candidate Has:
A recruiting manager and talent acquisition professional with over 20 years of experience recruiting in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Completed my second bachelor's degree in information systems, complimenting an MBA degree. Continually building professional network and candidate pipeline of software engineers and technical talent via social recruiting strategies, networking, attending local technical MeetUp presentations and conferences,
I host and moderate four major LinkedIn communities: Eclipse, Ruby-on-Rails, Java User Group[JUG], and Bay Area Technical Recruiters Society [BATRS]) and contribute and promote many other software engineering MeetUp events, foundations, ecosystems, and online communities.
With the belief that we should use technology to prove ROI, status, and productivity of recruiting strategy, I am very experienced with applicant tracking systems and related reports that allow hiring principles to view the status of submittals and job requirements via a real-time cloud-based application. My experience includes recruiting for immediate job requirements as well as generating career interest from passive candidates in order to generate a pipeline of qualified technical talent.
I have the ability and knowledge to contribute and participate in programming communities hosted by Microsoft (MDN), Oracle Technology Network, Google’s Code, Microstrategy, and others - because I am NOT perceived as a "headhunter" or recruiter... - I'm a software engineer and I leverage this status for purposes of developing a pipeline of passive candidates and individuals interested in leveraging introductions into professional business relationships that will last careers (not just immediate employment or business needs.)
