Not all successful tech companies have their origin stories born out of Silicon Valley or Seattle. In this episode of our C-suite leadership series, Comparably co-founder/CEO Jason Nazar sits down for a virtual fireside chat with Chris Hyams, CEO of Indeed. Hear about how this Austin, Texas-based tech startup broke the mold 15 years ago to become the No. 1 job search site in the world. More than 250 million people each month search for millions of jobs in over 60 countries and 28 languages, post resumes, and research companies on Indeed, and the site delivers three times more hires than any other job site. With 9,500 global employees, including 5,000 in the Austin area, it has also been credited with helping to build the city's burgeoning tech scene. The conversation will center around practical "If I Knew Then..." leadership advice, personal life philosophies, guiding principles, and the challenges and opportunities for entrepreneurs in today's landscape.
Other topics that will be covered include:
- The leadership tools needed to grow a company at global scale
- Leading a large organization through the pandemic
- Job market trends in a post-COVID world
- The future of work and recruiting
- How to drive D&I and social impact on businesses
