In the eighth episode of our Career Inspiration podcast, I interviewed Brian Gilbert - Director of Talent Acquisition at iRobot, which is famous for their robotic vacuum cleaner called the Roomba.

Brian has led talent acquisition at high growth startups and publicly traded companies at scale.

In this episode we discuss:

  • Gilbert's background
  • How he built out their talent acquisition function which was originally run by a recruitment outsourcing firm.
  • Why employment branding has been something the company has focused on significantly and the results.
  • iRobot's massive contributions to STEM education
  • ...and lots more!
