Research In Motion, along with other hi-tech’ers from up North including Tech Capital Partners, Sirific Wireless, and LiveHive, are packed and headed for Texas in hopes to recruit players for back home and expanding business in Dallas. All parties involved are looking for RFID and ASIC designers, software developers, SAP specialists, and more. There’ll be some RIM higher-up’s, too, so if any of you are looking for a new job, could you inquire about that 8800, too? Thanks.
RIM vice-president Tom Sanchez will provide a keynote address discussing the excitement of working for one of the world’s fastest-growing high-tech companies. Iain Klugman, president of Communitech, will present the employment opportunities, quality of life and very attractive cost of living in Waterloo Region.
“Encouraging smart people to consider returning to Canada and Waterloo Region isn’t difficult,” says Klugman. “The opportunities are exceptional. Today’s tech talent is smarter, more flexible and can work effectively from anywhere in the world. Why not work in a place where there’s leading-edge work, no traffic, inexpensive mortgages, and is just an hour’s drive to big-city Toronto?”
