When it comes to tracking the top innovation in Tech, it’s easy to get sucked into the concentration of the Bay Area, but this would be doing yourself a disservice. This Utah-based recruiter is proving that if you want to catch a unicorn, maybe their natural habitat is more mountain than the sea.
It’s fine to admit it. You’re certainly not alone. Salt Lake City just isn’t a place that jumps out at you screaming forward-thinking technical innovation. It’s a city far from the San Francisco Bay radius, but California-born, ten-year recruiting veteran Ethan Medeiros has made the trek to the mountains, where he’s set himself up as Director of Recruiting at Jane.com, one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in Utah.
Ethan looks to provide the most high-end products from the most trusted companies to the most loyal customers. For Ethan, this is not just a mission, it’s a promise. When joined Vendr they were at 125 employees and YTD they are at 419 employees currently. With a big initiative last year in 2022 to hire 69 new employees on the PDE team. He's focused on hiring Product, Product Designers, and Engineers.
Focused on building the future of eCommerce technology. Ethan is known as a talent gatherer, purple squirrel whisperer, and unicorn locator with a reputation for starting big things everywhere he works. Having grown Jane from 100 to 195 employees this past year, Ethan is passionate about building fantastic teams with the right people – big on shaping culture and ensuring best practices through proper scaling. He feels culture is an intentional practice, that it’s an evolution over time, and that requires trust from both employees and management.
