DeveloperAuction Targets Los Angeles With Job Auctions
DeveloperAuction, a Bay Area startup which is looking to let employers bid for engineers on an auction basis, has expanded into Los Angeles, beyond an initial launch in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, and Boston. The startup is looking to take advantage of the demand for developers by getting startups to "bid" on engineering talent. The startup lets engineers post their resumes for a 14-day auction, where multiple startups bid up what they're willing to pay that engineer to work at a company. The entire operation works based on an online resume; it's up to employers and candidates to set up in-person interviews, reference checks, and more. The firm says it only has candidates who are from "Facebook, Google, Apple, Twitter, Zynga, Stanford, and MIT".
