Chris Chauvin, Vice President of Engineering at SmarterHQ

“I’ve been in the tech industry in Austin for over 30 years and I’ve hired hundreds of people. Back in the day, I used to be the one running through the resumes and doing initial cold calls to prospects to determine who we should bring in for next steps. When I first worked for a company that had an internal recruiter, it got better, but not by much. A lot of the internal recruiters I worked with really had no knowledge of tech to determine who was a good fit or not.

I recently worked with Christine for the first time and all I can say is wow. I have never had a more seamless hiring experience in my career. Christine is amazing at understanding the job profile and finding candidates that best match that profile. I didn’t look at one resume that wasn’t qualified for the positions we hired. Next, she’s great at doing the primary interview looking for communication skills and culture fit. Finally, she owns the whole process, driving the conversations, keeping candidates engaged, and driving out the final offer.

I look forward to working with her more as we grow.”
