Garick Chan

Recruiter in Sunnyvale, California

Technocratic solutions to a communal future, I'm a connector, matchmaker and community-builder.

I've finished a contract role with NVIDIA as a technical sourcer and now seeking a full-time permanent role in staffing.

At NVIDIA, I was last focused on GPU compiler engineers and had otherwise worked on systems engineers, program managers and developers in AI/Deep Learning as well as automotive security software developers and managers for ISO 26262.

Prior to this, I was a full-cycle corporate technical recruiter with Continental, one of the world's leading automotive suppliers and have been working on LIDAR and ADAS roles for self-driving car technologies as well as HEV roles in eMotors, Battery Management Systems (BMS) and Power Electronics.

My background has been a blend of technical recruiting, career advising and social media marketing/social media community management. As to my extra-curricular activities, I'm a co-founder of the Bay Area Open Source meetup group (bitly.com/bayareaoss), volunteer with SCaLE, the Southern California Linux Expo for the past 7 years, served a 3yr term on the Board of Directors with a non-profit NPO, www.MercyBeyondBorders.org and also occasionally write for a tech publication, TechZulu.

In addition to classes for both USC Annenberg and LMU, I've also spoken for UCLA Career Week as well as various digital and social media conferences, workshops and seminars. In my past, I have been a proud advocate for Dun & Bradstreet, Lenovo and AT&T affiliates. *For disclosure, from time to time, I am offered products, services and invitations from a variety of brands. I give an honest opinion and only review those that I believe in.

I have previously been listed as one of the Top 500 Community Managers on Twitter/blogs by GetLittleBird http://t.co/OX4cGzlAbs and in the Kred Elite Top 1% of influencers.
