I am a software engineer in Southern California. In the past, when looking for jobs, I have worked with staffing firms. In particular, there is one company I turn to first, as their recruiters have always been very helpful, and I have maintained a good working relationship with them. A few months ago, I had lunch with two of the recruiters I had worked with and spent all meal talking about cryptocurrencies, BitShares, what the industry is doing and where its going. They have been very receptive to the ideas, and while they haven't dove in yet, crypto is on their radar.
I had lunch today with these same two individuals and updated them with BitShares status, including the addition of one of its best new features: Blockchain Hiring. I pitched them with my ideas of how they can help, and if you ask me, finding top developers has ALWAYS been one of BitShares greatest challenges. These two men just so happen to have have a rolodex full of quality engineers, many of whom are unemployed and looking for work, or are already used to working on open source projects for free. They are also used to working in environments in which the effort they put in determines the rewards they receive. As I went over the process for getting hired, and how to maintain accountability, they still remained very interested.
So, my question to the community is this:
How badly do you want professional recruiters working for our project?
I told my friends I would direct them to this thread, so please show them our support and convince them to make a submit a proper proposal. Let us know that you'll vote them in as paid delegates for either 1 or 2 positions (a tech partner may be needed), and what criteria you will use to judge their performance.
