CTO Series - Recruiting Top Notch Engineers the Easy Way

Speaker: Scott Porad (SVP, Product Development, Rover.com)

About Scott:

Scott Porad leads Product Development at Rover.com, a collaborative consumption marketplace for dog boarding.  Previously, Scott was CTO at the Cheezburger Network, the company behind the well-known user-generated content sites I Can Has Cheezburger?, Failblog, Memebase, TheDailyWh.at and Know Your Meme. 

Since 1995, Scott has been building industry leading web sites including launching drugstore.com, working on ESPN.com at Paul Allen's Starwave Corporation and for Seth Godin at Yoyodyne Entertainment.  Scott lives online at http://scottporad.com and in real life with his family in Seattle.

Talk summary:

Over the last seven years I have spent a lot of time recruiting engineers to startups.  Finding good talent is hard, but cleaning up the mess from people who aren't a good fit is harder.  I'll share with you the ways I've found to make recruiting easier.
