The Austin American-Statesman’s Lori Hawkins wrote up a nice piece about Indeed.com and their recruiting – something largely driven by Trilogy alumni like Doug Gray and Chris Hyams (and many others!).
Indeed, which has grown to 500 employees in Austin, is one of the region’s fastest-growing Internet companies
Indeed has grown from 90 employees in Austin four years ago to more than 500 today. The company, which has been one of the more aggressive recruiters of engineering talent, is also hiring experienced developers.
This year, the company hired 54 graduates from 25 schools, including University of Texas, Carnegie Mellon University, Rice University, Georgia Tech, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and MIT.
The new recruits have spent the past 12 weeks at Indeed’s offices in Northwest Austin, where they learned about the company, got to know company executives and broke into teams to come up with new Indeed products that they’ll pitch at an upcoming Shark Tank-style competition.
There’s just something vaguely familiar about all of this… : )
