Eggs 284: Finding your dream job in the tech business with Taylor Desseyn

Hey everyone and welcome back to Eggs! This week we are excited to bring to you high-powered tech recruiter and podcast host, Taylor Desseyn.

Taylor has been recruiting at Vaco since 2011 (and recruiting is like dog years, so he has a lot of experience to speak to). While he recruits on every skill set within technology, his main focus is on software engineers and developers. During his tenure, he’s met over 4,000 engineers and helped place over 450+ people in their dream jobs.

Taylor has been very active in the recruiting community – having been elected VP of the .NET User Group (the second-largest user group in Nashville) for 3 years. And has been fortunate to present at a number of events in the Nashville area, but also across the southeastern US at code conferences and beyond.

Taylor has a knack for scaling teams as well. He has helped scale teams internally at Vaco up to 3x their initial size at every stop he has been. He also was chosen to present at Vaco’s Global Conference on branding/marketing. Taylor is currently leading a team of 9 recruiters and has helped scale their revenue from $2 million to more than $6 million.

Beyond his work as a recruiter, Taylor is the founder and co-host of The Unicorn Finders Podcast where he, along with his co-hosts Jake and Dan share the knowledge gained over a collective 30+ years of recruiting experience leading and scaling high-performing teams for the companies they serve.

Please join us in welcoming to the show, Taylor Desseyn!
