MEET THE 2019 NYC TECH INFLUENCERS
Peloton is one of the fastest growing tech companies in New York, rumored to be preparing to go public shortly. The ability of any company to hire effectively and quickly has been instrumental in maintaining this type of meteoric growth. At Peloton, that responsibility belongs to Will Blaze, the managing of Technical Recruiting. Under Blaze's direction, the engineering team has scaled from 20 to 130 in two and a half years with plans to grow to 300 by 2020. He also looks after the hiring needs for product, hardware, design, and operations in addition to IT and Engineering. Peloton, as a whole, has scaled to 1100+ individuals with no signs of slowing down.
Blaze comes to Peloton from Birchbox, where he led its hiring efforts for data science, product, and engineering during its hyper-growth phase from 2015 to 2016. He is a noted authority on strategically developing solutions to make mission-critical hires and implement plans using top of the funnel and direct methods to staff and grow technology organizations. As Blaze continues to scale and become another one of the NYC tech community's breakout companies, Blaze is there to make sure that the company is able to feed the machine that it has built with talent.
