Before starting Harrison Clarke, I had eight years of experience in the recruiting industry. I always focused exclusively on “DevOps” recruiting even before “DevOps” entered the mainstream. When I moved to San Francisco in 2015, I quickly noticed a shift in the technology landscape and a gap in the market. That gap was DevOps recruiting expertise.
I founded Harrison Clarke with the vision to build the only DevOps/SRE recruiting firm across the United States. That same vision remains true today and will always be our goal. Beyond that, our promise to the market is to provide excellent customer service, excellent quality and attention to detail, and, finally, unconditional care and attention to each one of our clients, candidates, and everyone that works at Harrison Clarke, today and for years to come.
I joined Harrison Clarke for a different approach to recruiting. After recruiting for a year before joining the company, it became evident that I wanted to be part of something bigger, the opportunity to drive a firm towards success. My mindset has always been that I wanted to be part of a company that will allow me to retire early. I have found that firm.
You don’t join Harrison Clarke to do recruiting; you join Harrison Clarke to do Harrison Clarke. The platform we are provided here gives us the opportunity to have an enjoyable experience with a fantastic client/candidate pool. Harrison Clarke taught me that relationships are key, and engagement has to be human because people trust people more than brands. Harrison Clarke is all about that engagement and excellent service, an area I truly strive off.
After graduating from university, I knew that the two things I wanted from my first job were: a company whose mission I believed in and an environment that allowed me to grow incredibly quickly on a professional and personal level. Meeting the team at Harrison Clarke and hearing how much excitement and belief they had in the mission to dominate the DevOps space and finding out how quickly they had progressed here made my decision to join super easy.
I’ve heard many stories about what it’s like to do recruitment at other companies and how it can feel like a hamster wheel due to the constant focus on KPIs and cold calling. However, Harrison Clarke’s focus on the relationship instead of placement brings a new perspective to recruiting and a sense of fulfillment that I can’t imagine feeling at any other company.
