AI-driven recruiting tech that changes the way people do their job – Beamery

I have joined Beamery as Technical Recruiter & Engineering Evangelist. I am a firm believer that online you are not a Candidate or a Customer – you are both. Companies have become very sophisticated at building relationships with their customers online, but recruiting has stayed the same.

We bring powerful analytics, marketing automation and data enrichment technology to the incredibly important, but underserved area of Talent acquisition and Recruiting. What we’re building empowers companies to treat candidates like customers. It delights people and makes them more successful at work.

Technical Recruiter & Engineering Evangelist for Beamery (Our customers like Facebook, GitHub, Criteo & Shop Direct to name a few are some of the most innovative and quality-driven companies in the world, and we can’t bring them a product that is less than brilliant so we recruit the best to build and shape our product)

I own global hiring for Beamery’s Engineering, Product and Technology (EPD) functions and I understand the crucial part that I play in helping my region to achieve success (success starts with the awesome people I hire, after all). I own relationships with our CTO and CPO, as well as our EPD hiring managers and hold a position as the subject matter expert of the local and global engineering talent market.

I know we’re a small company, growing quickly, so I understand that my role does not stop at hiring great colleagues for our EPD teams: I help to own their onboarding and assist with their ongoing engagement and success in their roles (collaborating with EPD leadership and the wider People team).

I am a guardian of Beamery culture and our more specific Engineering culture/brand and I take pride in evangelising Beamery values to our own team and to the wider world. Finally, I take ownership of being the maestro of our own product.

If you would like to find out more about what we are doing or looking at joining our team please get ion contact with me.

Data Science & Big Data Analytics New Budget Season 2015

With the economy slowly improving, IT leaders are more optimistic that the corporate purse string will loosen up in 2015, and they’re eager to bring new technologies into the world in addition to just keeping the lights on. Computerworlds annual forecast survey of IT executives shows that budgets are indeed continuing to make a nice recovery. Some 43% of the 194 respondents said that they expect their IT budgets to increase. That’s up from 36% in last year’s study.

This year’s average anticipated up is 13.1%, and overall, the expected changes in IT budgets reported by all respondents average out to 4.3 %. IT is expected to gain kick up spending on security tools, Customer-facing technologies and information exchange/collaboration technologies that comprise the so called SMAC stack – social and mobile tools, analytics systems and cloud computing.

The one trend that we can expect is not only the amount of data increasing, but also a great boost in the market, which will flaunt the solutions for Data Science & Big Data Analytics. Data Science & Big Data Analytics is expected to follow in the footsteps of cloud computing because, just as cloud computing has become conventional, it is expected that Data Science & Big Data Analytics will also become mainstream. However, the basic question that arises is usually centered on how long it will take for solutions to become practical as well as sustainable for traditional firms.

With that in mind if you have any further questions which may help in shaping the budget process for your team please contact me on bigdatasolutions@opusrs.com or call me on 02074481407 / 07881351363

Sydney base for IT, oil and gas and recruiter. | Opus Opens | The Global Recruiter Magazine.

Specialist recruitment company Opus Recruitment Solutions, is pleased to announce the opening of it’s first overseas office in Sydney. The office will be operational from 15 September 2014 and will be headed by Craig Harman. Opus Recruitment Solutions, specialists in the IT and oil and gas sectors, has enjoyed continued growth year-on-year, having recently announced it is on course for achieving record growth in 2014 of £23m. With the company already overseeing a number of key international assignments, particularly in the fast-growing IT and oil and gas sectors in the Asia Pacific region, the decision to open a permanent base in Australia was an obvious one.

Commenting on the announcement, CEO Darren Ryemill said: “We have always enjoyed an international reach and have delivered on a number of key assignments throughout the region over the last 12 months. “The move to open a new permanent base in Sydney is in response to the needs of our clients and candidates alike who are looking to strengthen their position an extend their reach throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

Craig Harman, will assume the role of regional business manager – Sydney, when the office formerly opens on 15th September 2014. Mr Harman previously worked for Computer Futures in the UK before relocating to Australia in 2010. Over the last four years, he has worked with two of Sydney’s leading specialist recruitment firms and successfully established two new divisions before joining Opus and helping them to establish their Australia base.

Mr Harman said: “Opus’s decision to open an office here is a strong signal of intent and about the company’s confidence, capability and ambitions at both national and international level and it marks a significant milestone for the business.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Opus who have moved quickly to take advantage of its international connections and build our customer base in what is the first major step of the company’s global expansion strategy.”

The Sydney office will work closely with the Opus’s other offices in Bristol and London and it is anticipated that the company has plans to open two additional overseas offices within the next six months. Mr Ryemill added: “This is just the start of our international intentions. With the continued rise in global mobility, precipitated skills shortages for many business-critical roles within the sectors we specialise, our aim is to ensure that we build upon our current strengths and capabilities in foreign markets.”

The company currently employs 75 staff and plans to increase its headcount to 90 by the end of Q4 2014. Opus is currently seeking to add to its growing team of recruitment consultants based in Sydney as it looks to quickly establish itself as a leading provider of specialist talent for the IT and oil and gas sectors.

A plain English guide to how natural language processing will transform computing

Gigaom

Buzz phrases such as “artificial intelligence,” “machine learning” and “natural language processing” are becoming increasingly commonplace within the tech industry. There is a lot of ambiguity around these phrases, so I’ll explain the substance behind the technologies and why I believe they’re transforming the way we live, work and play.

When I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2007, I left with a compelling sense that the technology I’d been working with for the last five years had the potential to change the world. I’d recently completed a Ph.D. on the application of a new set of tools and techniques from the emerging field of Machine Learning (ML) to a range of tasks involving human languages — a field known as Natural Language Processing (NLP). If this sounds confusing, I’m not surprised! Many of the concepts are inherently complex. However, to try and make things clearer, ML is about…

Amazon, Google, Rackspace, Microsoft, Savvis all expand their international cloud footprints

Amazon, Google, Rackspace, Microsoft, Savvis all expand their international cloud footprints.

As competition in the cloud computing market intensifies, some of the biggest players are looking beyond their domestic borders to gain an international advantage.

Just this week Savvis, which is owned by telecommunications provider CenturyLink, announced 85,000 square feet of new data center space across 10 locations around the world, including two brand new data centers opening in London and Hong Kong, bringing the company’s global footprint to 2.4 million square feet across 50 centers.

[ Stay on top of the cloud with InfoWorld’s “Cloud Computing Deep Dive” special report. Download it today! | From Amazon to Windows Azure, see how the elite 8 public clouds compare in InfoWorld Test Center’s review. | For the latest news and happenings, subscribe to the Cloud Computing Report newsletter. ]

Microsoft, a sneakily robust vendor in the cloud market, announced this month the expansion of its services across Japan, opening two data centers in the region. Amazon Web Services, Rackspace, Google, IBM, and others each have had their own announcements during the past half-year expanding their data center footprints not just in the U.S., but with a particular focus on emerging international markets.

“To date, the U.S. is an early adopter of public cloud computing, and is generating significant revenue for U.S.-focused vendors,” says Jillian Mirandi, an analyst at Technology Business Research. “Now that public cloud computing is maturing, customers are seeking cloud on a more global level and vendors are looking to monetize this demand.”

[ Public cloud shakeup: VMware in, Dell out, OpenStack in limbo? ]

The focus on building out data centers in international locales is being fueled not only by vendors looking to outgun each other, but also because of customer demand in these regions. In emerging markets, the economics of using cloud computing resources can be attractive for startups because it requires much less investment in upfront capital expenses.

Data privacy rules and regulations are playing a role here too though, Mirandi points out. Many countries have data privacy laws that require certain types of information to be given safe harbor within that country’s domestic borders. Australia, for example, has seen investments by a handful of providers opening up data center space there, both as a launching point to service the Asia Pacific region, but also to comply with laws to store data on the island nation.

Amazon and Rackspace have specifically expanded in Australia recently, for example. Fujitsu recently signed an agreement with a university in Singapore to create a healthcare cloud in the country.
