SmartRecruiters to Host #HRTechTank San Francisco

We are set to host HRTechTank on December 2 at our San Francisco HQ.

#HRtechTank is bringing top tier HR thought leaders, HR Tech vendors and investors together to take a look at what is happening in the HR Tech space and to share their expertise with the most promising HR Tech companies. It is not a pitching event and certainly not a competition but a real opportunity to discuss and share ideas with the brightest minds in our industry.
