Tech Fest Recruiting Event Returns to West Coast

Posted by Rob Lewis

Last year Techvibes hosted a recruiting event called Tech Fest that brought together the hottest tech companies in Vancouver.

The one-of-a-kind event had a lineup of execs from some of fastest growing companies in Vancouver pitching the audience on why you should work for them.

After a stop in Toronto, Techvibes is bringing this event back to Vancouver on September 18 and you're invited to attend.

 

 

We have a full lineup of hiring companies that include some that participated last year and a handful that are stepping up their hiring on the West Coast.

There will be drinks and good food as you meet the CEOs, hiring managers, and executive teams of the presenting companies. Each company will have a creative exhibit area set up; in Vancouver there was a foosball tournament, popcorn machine, ice cream sundaes, ping pong, 4D simulators, and prizes.

And the highlight? Watch the execs have 3 minutes on stage to pitch you on why you should work for them. Hear what sets them apart, their perks, and the technology they're building. Confirmed speakers include WiderFunnel's Chris Goward, bazinga!'s Joseph Nakhla, Chimp's John Bromley, and Recon's Dan Eisenhardt.

Job seekers should register now as this event will fill up fast. Your ticket includes one complimentary beverage and appetizers.
