What we're about

This group is primarily for the alumni, participants, partners and supporters of The Job Hackers. The group will meet regularly to discuss Agile topics and help place the participants of The Job Hackers in meaningful employment. This group actively supports the mission of The Job Hackers which is to provide individuals with the knowledge and experience needed to navigate the complex world of knowledge work. We do this by not only giving our participants valuable knowledge about software development to prepare them for real-world jobs, but working with them and employers to ensure the proper placement of the participants. We believe in the power of proper education to imbue its participants with skills the market is happy to pay for. It is because of this the education given to people in transition is without cost. The Job Hackers model is to not receive compensation for their valuable training until our participants are placed in a job matching their training.

If you support our mission you are welcome to join us!

'Lead with Joy and Watch Your Team Fly'

Change is hard. But you won't create a joyful workplace by leading the way you've always led. In this talk, Rich explores his own journey to joy, focusing on how he had to learn to lead in a completely different way and, by doing so, witnessed results that exceeded his wildest expectations.

Richard Sheridan
CEO, Chief Storyteller & Tour Guide
Author of Joy, Inc. & Chief Joy Officer

Menlo Innovations CEO Rich Sheridan became disillusioned in the middle of his career in the chaotic technology industry. He had an all-consuming thought…things can be better. Much better. He had to find a way. Why couldn't a workplace be filled with camaraderie, human energy, creativity, and productivity?

Ultimately, Rich co-founded Menlo Innovations in 2001 to end human suffering in the workplace. His unique approach to custom software creation is so surprisingly different, that 3,000 people a year travel from around the world just to see how they do it.

His passion for creating joyful work environments led to his bestselling and widely celebrated book, Joy, Inc. - How We Built a Workplace People Love. His highly anticipated second book, Chief Joy Officer, came out December 4, 2018 and will continue to prove that a positive and engaging leadership style is actually good for business.
