Local companies join forces to launch Seattle Startup Recruit Week, driving the collaboration forward to win area’s top talent
KIRKLAND, Wash. – Aug 6, 2015 – BitTitan, the cloud enablement provider, today announced it is one of 30 Seattle-area companies that have come together to create a unique and successful recruitment model to attract top talent to keep pace with company growth. Instead of competing for high-quality applicants, local companies are collaborating to share recruitment resources and intelligence. As part of the collaboration, BitTitan will be one of twelve participating companies hosting the first annual Seattle Startup Recruit Week (SSRW), to further support the group’s initiative.
“Doubling our revenues each year since its inception, quickly finding and recruiting the best talent to fit our company culture and required skillsets is no small feat – especially in a burgeoning job market like Seattle,” said Darci Lee, director of talent at BitTitan. “We’ve already hired 40 candidates since January and are looking to fill 90 more positions in the next 6-12 months to keep up with this success. The unique recruiting initiative we have with other local growth companies is helping us reach our hiring goals.”
BitTitan and companies spanning across the Seattle metro area meet regularly and work together to identify top candidates and pass along resumes for open positions for one another. The companies also share tips and best practices on recruiting staff. During SSRW, companies will host open houses for networking and in-person resume reviews, allowing jobseekers to get a feel for each companies’ culture and open positions while increasing the candidate pool participating companies have to choose from.
“Open houses are a really unique experience, letting job seekers meet and speak with so many key people within a company,” said Shaun Malgarin, BitTitan project manager and former open house attendee. “There are plenty of management and HR staff on hand to speak to and provide insights on how the work environment could help someone thrive, along with furthering their career and experience. Attending one of BitTitan’s past events really highlighted the people at BitTitan, and their excitement rubbed off on me. It feels like I had a head start in the interview process.”
SSRW takes place starting Monday, August 17, with events happening throughout the week. Participating companies include EnergySavvy, Avvo, SimplyMeasured, Authorit, Flowplay, Gratify, Indeed, Realself, Spare5, STASH, Porch and BitTitan. Further details and company event dates and times are available at www.seattlestartuprecruitweek.com.
BitTitan’s SSRW event, Coding & Cocktails, will be held at 3933 Lake Washington Blvd NE, Suite 200, Kirkland, WA 98033 on Thursday, August 20 from 4:30 to 7:30p.m.
