Tabletop Tuesday Talk with Netflix's Recruiting Expert

  • SaaStr CSS 303 2nd Street, South Tower, Suite 200 San Francisco, CA, 94107 United States (map)

Join us for a pizza lunch and Tabletop Tuesday discussion with Netflix's Talent Acquisition Leader Extraordinaire Lynn Carter on How to Hire (and Retain) Engineers!

Lynn has hired thousands of engineers and executives in her career for companies ranging from early stage startups to large enterprises. At Netflix alone, Lynn has led a team that has hired over 700 engineers and top execs in the last four years. Among other things, she'll share insights into what motivates engineers to join or leave a company, what maximizes likelihood of a successful hire for early stage companies, and how to hire for and create a global culture with the increasing number of remote workers. 

Tabletop Tuesday discussions are intentionally small group events with capped attendance, so space is very limited. Priority is given to SaaStr CSS members. Other attendees are invited to attend subject to space availability and subject to confirmation.
