As in the past years, Productsup joins us again and may be looking for just you. Get to know them before you meet the team in person.

In 2010, two entrepreneurs founded Productsup with the simple objective to manage retailer feeds, agency-style. Along the way, a light bulb moment happened that would instantly set Productsup on to a new path to pioneership of an untapped space within the digital economy: Productsup became a cloud-based, SaaS platform that would empower commerce enterprises to seamlessly transfer their product content to the global matrix of ever-changing shopping and marketing channels - putting these companies in the driving seat of their own digital transformation journey. Now headquartered in a modern office in the heart of Berlin, Productsup has over 800 customers, including Fortune 500 companies, and a team of more than 115 FeedFighting talents located all over the world.

Productsup: Leading Software for Feed Management & Product Content Syndication

The team unites 26 nationalities. While being spread across 10 offices worldwide, they’re one big happy family. They believe that performance should be measured by the work created, rather than the hours put into the office.

The company is always looking for exceptionally talented, ambitious individuals who aren’t afraid to take initiative and make an impact in a fast-paced market environment. They care about diversity, inclusion and individuality at Productsup. The team has clear cut roles for optimal productivity which are open for new talent, but they do not have a clear cut idea of who should fill them. So long as they are true to themselves, enjoy puns about data, free pizza during onboarding week and Mario Kart tournaments.

The real benefit of working at Productsup is the people, the atmosphere and the decision making philosophies that empower them to take action fast and be fearless of failure. Other benefits, as they say, include:

  • “We have a Chief Heart Officer, Benno the Golden Retriever, who monitors workplace stress levels. He has hired a puppy intern named Theo to help patrol the two-storey workspace in Berlin. Let’s not forget the Boston Terriers, Holley and Baloo who always lift office morale.
  • Our Berlin office kitchen is always fully stocked with free fruit, snacks, beer and wine. And more often than not, boxes of doughnuts “just because”, cinnamon buns when it's cold, home-baked goodness or delicious travel souvenirs from our fellow coworkers.
  • Our meeting rooms are named after women and men known for their revolutionary contributions in tech and society, such as Alan Turing, Grace Hopper and Rosa Parker.
  • Mindfulness and fitness are important to many FeedFighters, so Productsup likes to contribute to Urban Sports memberships to make life that little bit easier.
  • Bi-annual, company-wide team events where FeedFighters from all corners of the world come together to celebrate past successes and strengthen that unique bond we share.”

They want Lennon Wright to support Tech Talent from the dev room to the interview room! John has lived in both Munich and Vienna and is a passionate fan of Chelsea FC. Robert now lives in the USA and is expanding Lennon Wright’s American business.

What's the story behind the creation of your company? What inspired you to start your business?

Rob & John both worked for the “typical recruitment company” where they learnt how NOT to work with candidates. Their vision was to create an honest, ethical, transparent and above all, candidate-focused company that gave power back to the candidate. By focusing on delivering an excellent service to candidates and working with them to develop their career, Lennon Wright have established an outstanding reputation across Europe and the USA.

Do you have a special story of something unique you did for a client? Something unusual you did as a team, something memorable you'd like to share?

When Lennon Wright first started in 2015 we were working with a candidate who had not worked in 9 months. He was a great developer but had had some bad luck. We found him a job outside London which was perfect for him but the transport links were not great. So we bought him a car! So he could get to work. He is still working for the client and has never looked back 😊.

aginext conference - techstartupjobs

Are you already immersed in an agile transformation and most of the ‘Agile 101’ conferences don’t bring anything new to you?

Maybe you’re looking for something more? Like a place to meet with other like-minded and experienced agilists? A place where you’ll actually learn something new?

We’ve got good news for you. The Aginext Conference returns to London this spring! Don’t make plans for the 21st and 22nd of March 2019 because that’s your time to get really deep into all things agile.

What’s On Schedule?

“A mix of actionable talks and hands-on workshops, Aginext is known for its experienced, entertaining and sometimes controversial speakers, and, even more so, for our awesome attendees that make networking between sessions invaluable!”

The Aginext Conference schedule is full of everything you’d like there to find: hands-on workshops, horizon-broadening talks, precious networking, and constant learning. Let us give you a quick peek at what’s awaiting all Aginext attendees this year:

  • How to Navigate Out of Hell
  • Rise of the Machines: AI in the Agile World
  • Are Tech Ethics Unprofessional?
  • Playful Leadership: How to enable transformational change and have fun doing it
  • Stop having static teams, start moving people to the work!
  • Retrospecting Your Retrospectives
  • 80/20 and ‘Not everybody likes to dance’ rules in Agile transformation
  • The Four Horsemen of Toxic Behaviour

Interested? Check out the full schedule of the conference.

Network & Connect

In between the talks, the Aginext attendees are presented with one of the best networking opportunities ever. These two conference days provide a unique chance of finding people who — just like you — are all about agile transformation.

While listening to the speakers will definitely prove fascinating, it’s the experience-sharing which makes Aginext conference so special. The mix of expertise, personalities, approaches and ideas won’t repeat anywhere else — so make sure you’re in London on the 21st and 22nd March 2019!

The tech/IT industry is one of the fastest growing in the U.S., with the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasting “faster than average” growth for many computer science occupations for the next several years.

Couple that with the fact many positions in tech have starting salaries of$60,000/year or greater and you have one of the most competitive, in-demand job markets around.

To give yourself an edge over your competition, where you look for a job is just as important as what you owe. Start your search on one of these sites and you’ll be well on your way.

Dice.com

With 74,953 tech jobs as of October 2018, Dice.com is a job board dedicated solely to careers in programming, information technology and similar pursuits.

Some of the companies posting jobs on the site include big names like Amazon, eBay, Cisco, Deloitte and Apple, so you’re sure to find some of the best positions in the industry here.

The site also has an extensive news section where you’ll find helpful and informative articles explaining the latest trends and job-hunting career tips in the industry.

In addition, Dice.com’s tech career tool kit is an invaluable resource for IT job-hunters, featuring in-depth advice on how to format your resume/cover letter, interview effectively and network with your peers.

icrunchdata

Starting in 2003, icrunchdata caters to job-hunters seeking careers in big data and analytics jobs for some of the biggest brands around the world.

The site has more than more than 300,000 job listings, covering roles such as IT systems engineer, data analyst, director of modeling, application developer and plenty more.

Job-hunters can either post their resumes and hope to be discovered or actively apply to jobs listed by the thousands of businesses that work with the site. Companies hiring through icrunchdata include Intuit, Dell, Sprint, AMD, E*Trade and plenty more.

When you want to take a break from your job search, be sure to check out icrunchdata’s news section for insight from leading industry experts and information on the latest hot trends in tech.

TechCareers

A branch of the Beyond.com career network, TechCareers is one of the go-to sites for people looking for careers in tech.

When you’re browsing through its catalog of more than 176,000 tech jobs, you’ll see familiar companies such as Coca-Cola, AT&T, Fresh Market, Dish Network, UPS and plenty more.

Whether you’re looking to become a mobile software architect, technical writer, CAD designer or data analyst, you’re sure to find plenty of great career options on TechCareers.

Don’t forget to check out the site’s vibrant online community where you can upload your resume and portfolio and start networking with people who can give you valuable advice on breaking into the industry.

Non-Industry Sites

In addition to sites that cater specifically to the tech industry, you’d be smart to look at general purpose job sites for opportunities as well.

LinkedIn, for example, is the largest career-oriented social networking site in the U.S. You’ll find near limitless resources and opportunities here, even getting the chance to communicate directly with recruiters or individuals who do the kind of work you’re looking to break into or move up in.

Indeed is another popular employment search site. It may not have the bells and whistles of LinkedIn, but its job listings are incredibly diverse. You can find hundreds of thousands of ads for the tech/IT industry in hundreds of cities around the world here.

If you’re still in school, your campus career development office will likely have a helpful website featuring job listings specifically for people looking to land their first gig in the industry. Even if you're out a few years and looking for higher level jobs, it could be worth checking back just in case.

And while they’re generally not considered “job search” sites, check out tech blogs such as TechCrunchWiredHostingAdviceY Combinator and even Reddit’s subreddit for IT  for the latest news and information about the computer science industry.

The Bottom Line

Don’t limit your search to just one website. You have the best chances of finding a job if you search in multiple places.

The tech industry is booming right now and will continue to grow so long as bright minds continue to develop new ways for technology to streamline our lives. Finding a job on one of these sites could be your first step to becoming the next innovator that changes the world. For general advice to make sure your resume is up to speed, read How Long Should My Resume Be? and Top Skills You Need On Your Resume.

Tech job seekers need the right skills to land a lucrative job. A Thursday report from Indeed examined the fastest-growing skills that these professionals are searching for on their site, including the programming languages and tools they want to use in a new position.

Indeed analyzed the fastest-growing search terms used by job seekers looking for tech jobs on the site, and compared them to the year before.

Here are the 10 hottest skills that tech job seekers are searching for in a new role.

1. Kubernetes

Year-over-year growth: 173%

Software developers familiar with Kubernetes—the fastest-growing skill tech job seekers searched, by far—can help organizations scale their cloud computing systems alongside other containerization tools like Docker, according to Indeed.

2. Magento

Year-over-year growth: 116%

Coming in at no. 2 is Magento, the open source ecommerce platform written in PHP. This software helps ecommerce businesses run smoothly, and jobs in this area are growing rapidly, Indeed found.

3. Verilog

Year-over-year growth: 89%

Verilog is a hardware description language used to model electronic systems. Its popularity on this list demonstrates how valuable hardware engineering still is, even if software skills are often more widely discussed, Indeed found.

4. Golang

Year-over-year growth: 81%

Golang—Google's Go programming language, often called Go—is one of the most in-demand programming languages. Go powers some of Google's biggest properties, and is optimized for running on the multicore processors, networked systems, and massive computation clusters that underlie web services.

5. Ansible

Year-over-year growth: 72%

Open source software Ansible automates software provisioning, configuration management, and application deployment. Open source tools showed strong growth overall on this list.

6. Autocad

Year-over-year growth: 71%

Computer-aided design and drafting software application Autocad has been a mainstay in fields like architecture, graphic design, and engineering for years.

7. Laravel

Year-over-year growth: 66%

Another open source PHP software tool, Laravel is used in web application development.

8. React

Year-over-year growth: 61%

Facebook's React framework was the fastest-growing tech skill last year, but fell to no. 8 this year.

9. Node.js

Year-over-year growth: 57%

Node.js stems from JavaScript, which remains one of the most in-demand programming languages in the enterprise.

10. C

Year-over-year growth: 54%

The programming language C remains popular in open source software, and for a variety of other uses.

Some tech skills experienced a drop in tech job searches this year, Indeed found, including Spark (down 47%), Hadoop (down 64%), Ruby (down 23%), Tableau (down 15%), and R (down 8%). However, this doesn't mean that these skills are no longer needed. In many cases, a drop signals that the skill has matured, and may have a large overall share of searches. For example, while searches for "IT" are growing slowly, it is still one of the most common search terms for job seekers on Indeed, the report noted.

"Hadoop, AWS, R, Spark, and Tableau are all widely used tools and will likely continue to be so for some time," Andrew Flowers, economist at Indeed, wrote in the report. "But in 2018 they are no longer among the 'hot' skills for tech job seekers."

What makes an awesome startup employee?

mjohnson-10-d3-2015-7761-new-tech-visa-supports-northern-powerhouse-and-team-hiring_6115_t12

You hear people talking about what makes a great startup founder all the time: A great sense of vision, clarity of purpose, relentless drive, a strange balance of over-confidence and insecurity.

There are whole books written about it.

But what makes a great startup team-member? The people who join and thrive in early start startup teams are an equally special breed. In fact, the best startup employees aren’t necessarily the best fit for working in more established businesses – some of the most brilliant startup people I’ve worked with find the traditional business work impossibly frustrating.

“It’s so SLOOOW!”

“I’m just doing the same thing every day – I want to be more in touch with the other stuff going on in the business!”

There are a whole range of attributes that are uniquely suited to these small, high-growth, high pressure companies, but it can be hard for founders who are hiring teams (and people hunting for jobs) to know what those are. So we’ve smooshed together our recruiting AND startup running experience and made a list of the top 8 attributes we’ve found to be the most valuable:

Passion, enthusiasm, motivation for what you’re doing – Must buy into your vision and your big “Why” – what it is you’re trying to do or create in the world. They’ve gotta care about the problem you’re trying to solve, otherwise it’ll be hard to stay motivated.

 Curiosity – They’ve got to love the process of finding better ways to do things – especially when it comes to challenging assumptions about the only way to build products. Being curious about why you’re doing this, who it’s for and how they’re going to use it is vital across all roles in a startup too.

 Pace – They’ve got to be great at making decisions and acting on them quickly. The old adage of succeed quickly or fail fast is the day to day life of a start up. You need people who thrive and are excited by this.

 Fearless/Audacity – try the impossible, challenge more than just the status quo, be prepared to push the boundaries, limits of what we believe

 Grit – /resilience – your resilience will be consistently tested and challenged in a startup. That thing you just spent a month working on? It’s not working, we need to abandon it and try something else. The reality is that it will not be a smooth ride. People who have made it through a few tough life experiences, who have demonstrated Grit, are more likely to survive.

 Hunger and willingness to sacrifice – Founding a startup requires sacrifice. So does working in one. You’re going to get chucked in the deep end often. You’re going to be asked to work longer hours, more often. It’s a high pressure job so you’ve got to be hungry and prepared to make sacrifices.

 Sense Of Humour – You’ve got to be able to laugh and realise that tomorrow is another day. The sun will set, the sun will rise. Late nights, too much pizza and endless bug squashing is only bearable if it’s also fun. You want to be able to laugh with the people you sit next to.

Flexibility – The only constant is change. Get ready to develop skills you don’t have. Although you may be employed for a specific role, the nature of start up means that everyone leans in the direction that the business needs to be focused on at that time. If its sales this month – then get ready to help out in that area. Anyone who defaults to “that’s not in my job description” isn’t suited to a startup life.

Applying for a job in a startup and applying for a job in a corporate, are qualitatively different things. Demands of both are different and the mindset you’d require to perform well at both of them is different.

If you have already decided to work for a startup despite all the hurdles that may await you on your way, here are a few tips about things to avoid saying and doing during your startup job interview process.

Using generic phrases

Phrases like fast learner, strategist, initiator of new initiatives will not work for a startup, at least not for a good one – A good startup will expect people who can communicate clearly what they have done and what past result and achievement makes them eligible in less than 140 characters. If you are still left with space to explain your personality, be my guest.

Jump straight to why can you deliver on that particular job they are advertising? Because you’ve done it before? Because you got the network? Because got the figures? Show them the figures.

happy-workers

“Managing” a team

No startup ever has use of managers people who hope to get things done delegating to others. In a startup everyone ships and there is no hierarchy but a flat hierarchy. Everyone is in the field and everyone delivers something at the end of the day – whether code, content, or customer support calls.

Saying how cool and necessary their startup is for the society

Even if that’s true no good startup will ever hire you for flattering.
The better way is to decide what specifically they are call about and address that particular need. For example – I saw your downloads getting to 10,000 in just 10 days, I can help it jump to a 1,000,000 in 30 days. Or your interface is so cool, I’d love to work on some extra things that will boost your conversion in another 3%.

See? Flatter + actionable in the same pitch

Being a “people” person

I don’t know why people use this so much, what exactly do they try to convey and what will it take to remove it from their dictionary. You say you are a people person who knows how to make it win-win for everyone? Well perfect, in other words you are a great salesman. In that case sell my product to someone in a way he is so happy and delighted with the value he gets for his money that he refers 10 more people to buy. That’s a real people person if you ask me.

Being remorseful about 9-5 jobs

This won’t get you selected, not only because it is cliché nowadays, but because no one works 9-5 anyways. Our smartphones and 3G have permanently taken that privilege from us. Therefore both, the average and the great performers work beyond 9-5 but the difference is what they deliver.

If you can’t showcase what you have achieved even within those hours, your rebellious mind will not sell you to the opportunity. It is not about the 9-5 job and it is not because you are forced to do the same thing every single day. It is rather because you are lazy and unwilling to challenge yourself. Contrary to what the folklore says, no company ever forces people to do the same thing or forbids them to innovate within their own context.

You are looking for more challenging role

No you don’t. Get to the point. Be honest, you will be appreciated for that and save many people’s valuable time. What you need is more money.

If you were looking more challenges you would have found some already. The world is not short of challenges. The very fact that you haven’t shipped or built anything in the past few years is a living proof that challenges is not what you are after. Cut the nonsense.

You have already failed in your own startup

Thank the startup folklore again for making it sound cool for people to brag that they have failed a startup, hence being more powerful and experienced as a result of it. That blog you were running? That doesn’t count as a startup unless you found way to monetize it.

What matters more to those who’d hire you is not the mere fact that you failed in your own startup but that you understand the nature of that failure and why exactly it failed. Demonstrating clarity around this will earn you extra points on your startup job’s application.

Monitoring your brand online is getting simpler and simpler by the day. It's becoming clear that hiring a reputation management firm not only is a wasted expense but something your in-house marketing team can do itself if trained in the right tools and methodologies.

After all, why spend money on defending a brand when you can spend money promoting a brand? Unfortunately for the unsuspecting client, there are some reputation management companies that are nothing more than snake oil salesmen who over promise and under deliver and in return drain your business of critical capital.
