Matt Englund

Talent leader

Minneapolis, MN

How does this work?

I’m passionate about leading top talent acquisition teams to help fill competitive roles in high-growth tech companies. I partner with leaders to meet their hiring goals by finding the best talent for their teams – I believe in quality over quantity. I abhor formality and find the quickest way to truly understand someone is to have a sincere conversation with them. Using old interview tropes only hires great interviewers and I want to hire great people.
