What is Vincit Dev Talks?

_

In our work with the leading tech companies we’ve seen that building quality software is always a team effort. Effective team members need to understand and appreciate the various aspects of the creative process, including design, innovation, development, marketing and sales.

Vincit Dev Talks is designed to bring directors down from their towers and developers out from their cubicles. We will feature speeches on a variety of topics ranging from marketing and business development to software engineering. Talks will be brief but informative, leaving time to chat and enjoy the free food and drinks

Sean Dailey
Director of Talent & Culture, Ytel

Sean Dailey is the Director of Talent & Culture at Ytel, a communication software company based here in Southern California. He started his career in agency recruiting, helping other companies grow their teams and gaining valuable insight into a wide variety of organizations. There was one common theme with most of these companies that he noticed – a lack of care for the people and culture. Eventually, Sean grew tired of sending great candidates to companies that weren’t what they claimed to be and decided to pursue an internal recruiting role, where he could positively impact the company’s culture and new hires’ experience. When he was first introduced to Ytel he knew he’d found a company that mirrored his values. Sean has been consistently growing their team ever since.

Sean is a huge believer in company culture and relationship building. With these focuses, he has made it his personal goal to provide employees with an environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and passion.
