Junior Dev Speed Dating Interviews

by Eryn O'Neil and Genghis Philip | at MinneBar 13 | 11:15 – 12:05 in Proverb-Edison | View Schedule

Calling all junior developers currently looking for a job!

Join us for a series of one-on-one conversations with representatives from companies looking to hire developers just like you. This session will be run "speed-dating" style: Every five minutes, you'll get the chance to talk to someone from a local company about what you're both looking for and whether you might be a fit. If both sides like each other, great! Continue the conversation after the session. If not, that's alright-- we'll ring the bell within five minutes!

Developers, come ready to talk about your experience and career goals. Resumes are helpful but not necessary -- we'll provide notecards for exchanging information.

Hiring managers, if you want to be part of this session, please fill out this form to let us know. For logistical reasons, all hiring partners must commit before the session.

NOTE: this session will have a maximum attendance enforced at the door so that everyone who gets into the room will be guaranteed conversations. If you don't make it into the session, not to worry! We'll have Raincheck boxes for you to let these recruiters know you're interested in their company.


Eryn O'Neil

In her 13 years in the industry, Eryn O’Neil has been a developer, a tech lead, an independent consultant, a manager, and a director. Coming from the agency world, she has worked on everything from e-commerce and online promotions to crafting a proprietary framework and CMS. Her philosophy is to build software by placing humans first: both the people who will use it and the developers who will build it with you (and maintain it afterward).

Living in Minnesota, Eryn spends most of her free time teaching blues dancing, being a new mom, and wishing it weren’t snowing. You can follow her on Twitter at @eryno.

Genghis Philip

Genghis is an ultimate player, boxer, and gamer. He has spent the better part of the last decade making sure teams work well together at various and sundry tech companies around the cities, with titles ranging from Scrum Master to Director of Engineering to COO. He also sits on the board of the Twin Cities Ultimate League and thinks you should sign up for summer league.

I guess you could follow him on Twitter (@hawksfire), but only if you're particularly interested in all-caps tweets about the Chicago Bears.
