    Best Recruiting Team in Austin

    Current Employee - Technical Recruiter in Austin, TX

    I have been working at Technology Navigators full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    High-performing teammates who push each other to continue the upward momentum the company is enjoying
    Tight-knit group, where communication is open and helpful
    "Above-the-line" mentality--rules of candidate ownership put in place assist recruiters in maintaining positive relationships withe each other and candidates
    Work hard/play hard: this team puts in hours, for sure, but we also have celebratory events and team-building in-house to cut loose
    Small team: you know everyone well, and strong bonds are built between everyone on staff
    All-hands meetings once a month--you know what you are contributing to the bottom line
    Structured approach to engaging the community, executed well by all involved
    Earning potential is really unlimited here.

    Cons

    This job isn't for you if you're looking for a 40 hour work week: if you want to be a recruiter, you need to be mentally prepared to do what it takes to engage engineers and developers, who are hard to reach during the day.
    Pressure-filled environment--but that's the nature of the beast. True high-performing recruiters are refined by pressure, not deflated by it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to scale the team and invest in the recruiters. We all believe in this team, and together we can take this company in just about any direction you want!

    Pros

    This company really cares about the clients and candidates that we serve, has a true commitment to the Austin Technology Community and treats its employees like they are valuable.

    Not too many places to eat around the office! But the view and commute are great!

    Expand your presence to more locations than just Austin!

    None at the moment! We can't grow as fast as we would like, but that's part of being smart!
