startup42

Today, TechMeAbroad and Startup42 – an accelerator helping early-stage technology startups – announce a partnership to help their companies recruiting talent abroad.

“Even though France is training fantastic engineers, we unfortunately don’t train enough of them and it become hard for companies to find talent they need. Thanks to TechMeAbroad, our startups will have access to thousands of candidates who are willing to move to France”, said Daniel Jarjoura, Startup42 Founder.

Until TechMeAbroad, French companies could not easily look abroad for talents that are missing in France. As the Tech industry is booming and the startup world is accelerating, this need will greatly increase in the next years. “We are urgently looking for a system engineer but are having hard times to find one” said Benjamin Laplane, Defab co-founder, a Startup42 company.

TechMeAbroad extends its partnerships in Europe with Epitech

Logo_Epitech

San Francisco, CA – Thursday May 7th. Today, TechMeAbroad and Epitech – the European Institute of Technology – announce a partnership to help Epitech students and alumni find internships and jobs abroad.

“Our students and alumni are actively looking for jobs abroad, and until we spoke with TechMeAbroad, we could not help them as much as we wanted. Thanks to TechMeAbroad, our students and alumni will have access to hundreds of tech job offers from companies sponsoring visas.” said Emmanuel Carli, Epitech Director.

Julien Barbier, the co-founder and CEO of TechMeAbroad, knows this problem very well. Eight years ago, the Epitech alumnus was looking for a job in the US and couldn’t find any company willing to hire him. “Since the time I graduated, my dream was to be part of a Silicon Valley startup. I remember sending dozens of emails to Silicon Valley companies. Out of 200 emails, I received only four answers and none of them were willing to sponsor a visa. Engineers all around the world are facing the same issue. Thanks to TechMeAbroad, we can now help them connect with companies across borders,” Julien said.

Epitech students and alumni will be able to access offers directly from their intranet and Epitech will also have a dedicated page on TechMeAbroad to facilitate the hiring of talents by their alumni. “We have hundreds of alumni all around the world and they are also hiring other Epitech alumni. TechMeAbroad will facilitate the connection between those international Epitech alumni and graduates.” said Emmanuel Carli, Epitech Director.

Earlier this week, another Epitech alumnus was talking about how he found a job in San Francisco within a week thanks to TechMeAbroad. “Through this partnership, we want to serve more graduates and make the process easier for Epitech alumni.” Said Sylvain Kalache, co-founder of TechMeAbroad

In a global economy, Tech companies must recruit abroad

In a global economy, Tech companies must recruit abroad

In a global economy, where tech companies are building products for the world, it is nonsensical to only look locally for talents. Not only because depending on their location, they won’t be able to find certain types of talents, but having an international product often requires you to tweak certain aspects to address cultural or market differences.

Ensuring diversity in your team by recruiting abroad is a great way to tackle that issue, and many companies understood this. Some prominent leaders of the High Tech sector such as Dev Khare and Vijay Shekhar are seeing the trend.

Before TechMeAbroad, there was no place where Tech companies could easily find talents willing to move abroad. For candidates, finding a company that is recruiting abroad was also a nightmare. Today, that problem is gone and we are convinced that this trend will make the Tech industry and the life of many tech workers better.
