However, candidates should be familiar with / interested in things like mobile apps, social media tools, SEO tools, or web design.

Why did I start this?

Often people from interesting companies often reach out to me looking for talent. These people are usually friends or former colleagues that I respect. Many of the companies I know personally and find their work culture, business philosophy, or talent management approaches fascinating.

In addition, many great tech companies with technical founders are looking for non-tech talents but don’t know where to look. Basically, I just want to help my friends find other great people. In addition to asking friends that come to mind and posting on social media, I decided to consolidate these opportunities here.

If you think you’re right for the job, you can also send me your information directly. Since these are people I know, I will do an initial screening because I want to respect everyone’s time. Please note that even if I do forward your application, I have no direct influence on the outcome of the hiring process. I’m just trying to connect good people. 🙂
