Jan 9th: Outsourcing: Managing and Hiring U.S. and Overseas Developers


Tahoe Silicon Mountain, a network of technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee area, is pleased to welcome Ellen Raynor to present: “Outsourcing: Managing and Hiring U.S. and Overseas Developers”

It is estimated that by 2020, 40% of American workers will be independent contractors operating in the "gig economy." Many members of our own community already earn their living through contract work.

Ellen Raynor, founder and CEO of KeepOnMovin', will leverage 20-years of experience in enterprise software product leadership roles where she has utilized contract developers across a variety of geographies, disciplines, structures and company stages, in this interactive discussion.

She’ll explore the why and how of hiring and working with contract developers, provide tips and tricks, and will compare options using first-hand case studies of both successes and failures in startups, small businesses and large companies.

The meeting will be on Monday, January 9th, 6-8 pm at Pizza on the Hill, in Tahoe Donner at 11509 Northwoods Blvd., Truckee. A $5 fee includes pizza and salad. Before and after the presentation, there will be time for networking with other technology professionals who live and work in the Tahoe-Truckee region. 

The event will also be livestreamed and available online as it happens on YouTube:
