Engineering Leadership SIG: The Recruiter Honeypot



  •  In late 2009, Elaine Wherry created an online persona named Pete London – a self-described JavaScript ninja – to help her identify, attract and hire the best JavaScript recruiters. While she never hired a recruiter from the experiment, she learned a ton about how to compete in today’s Silicon Valley talent war. What's the best way to recruit? Meebo co-founder Elaine Wherry determined to figure it out. She'll share all at the Engineering Leadership SIG this month.

    Bio: Elaine Wherry co-founded Meebo in 2005 with Seth Sternberg and Sandy Jen and served as Meebo's Chief Experience Officer and Vice President of Product. Prior to Meebo, Elaine Wherry served as Manager of Usability & Design at Synaptics. At Stanford, she majored in Symbolic Systems with a concentration in Human-Computer Interaction. Today she enjoys advising other entrepreneurs and is taking a quick breath before diving into something new. Her unmarketable interests include seeing the world via rented bicycles, playing the classical mandolin, and finding unfunny situations funny.
