Chris Schwacofer

Chris Schwacofer has spent the last 6 and a half years in a pure technical sourcing function supporting both high volume pipeline and niche in-house needs. Amazingly, he was completely unaware of the talent acquisition industry until he found his way into a sourcing career thanks to the suggestion of Matt Ferree. In January 2012, he joined NetPolarity and was trained and mentored by Mark Tortorici and Matt Ferree. He would spend 4 years at NetPolarity as a sourcer, with 2 years of those as the Lead Sourcer and Sourcing and Technology trainer. He has since worked in-house at Amazon Lab126, Facebook, Atlassian, and now Splunk.
