Top 50 Hadoop Developers In The Bay Area

Top 50 Hadoop Developers In The Bay Area

Here’s a spot quiz for anyone reading this post. What is Hadoop?

Actually let’s make it a bit easier for you. We’ll make it multiple choice!

Is Hadoop …

  1. A character in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book?
  2. A newly discovered superfood related to the acai berry?
  3. An open-source software framework for storing data and running applications on clusters of commodity hardware? or
  4. Can I please phone a friend?

To be honest, when I first heard one of our clients refer to Hadoop several months ago, I had to ask for clarification too.

When a company has a very specific type of candidate in mind, it influences every step of their hiring process. One of the most important steps happens at the very beginning, and it’s called sourcing – an area we know quite a bit about.

Sourcing is the process of identifying the specific characteristics of your ideal candidate, then finding as many people who meet that criteria as possible.

For example, maybe you’ve got your eye set on one of the Top 50 C-Level Marketing Professionals in Seattle, the Top 50 Female Full Stack Developers in New York City, the Top 50 Female Front-End Engineers in San Francisco or the Top 50 Female UI/UX Designers in Austin, Texas.

Wherever you truly believe your ideal candidate might be ‘hiding’, at RecruitLoop, we’ve created a very specific sourcing algorithm and process to help you find them, anywhere in the world. We call it Sourcing as a Service.

Now let’s say hypothetically you were looking for one of the Top 50 Hadoop Developers in the Bay Area.

Well it just so happens that you’ve come to the right place. Here are they for your perusal based on their experience, qualifications and digital footprint.
