FWD.us, an advocacy organization dedicated to moving the knowledge economy forward, profiled SmartRecruiters because we’re founded by an immigrant entrepreneur, taking Silicon Valley by storm (employing people like me), and have helped companies hire for hundreds of thousands of jobs, both domestically and abroad.
Here are the top soundbites on the state of immigration and recruitment for tech startups:
“Startups need talent like no one else because when you’re working for a 10,000 people company the risk is evenly distributed among 10,000 people,” said Natalia. “But for startups, if you have 30 people, 50 people, each individual contribution is a much bigger stake.”
“It’s hard for companies to acquire talent they need. It’s equally hard for people to find jobs they love,” said Jerome. “And we think there’s a much better way to make that match – to finally make hiring easy.”
“Tech doesn’t have to be a thing to be feared. It’s to make the process you already do and the life you already live better.”
