The VentureFizz Career Inspiration Podcast: Michael Brown - VP, Talent at SHYFT Analytics

In the sixth episode of our Career Inspiration podcast, I interviewed Michael Brown - VP, Talent at SHYFT Analytics.

Brown graduated from Ithaca College with a degree in Applied Psychology. His career has focused on building out the talent acquisition function for high growth companies. When he joined Acquia in 2012, he was the sole technical recruiter and ended up running a global talent acquisition function as a Director. Today, he leads a team at SHYFT Analytics in Waltham which is a fast growing cloud data management and mobile analytics for the global life sciences industry.  

In this episode we discuss:

  • Brown's background
  • Building a successful employee referral program
  • The challenges of hiring UX professionals
  • Recruiting talent in the suburbs
  • The importance of having a side hustle
  • ...and lots more!
