Tech jobs boom like it's 1999 By Jon Swartz, USA TODAY

     SAN FRANCISCO — Some 20 recruiters sized up Scott Mersy as they would a star high

     school running back. But instead of timing his 40-yard dash or checking his percentage of

     body fat, they were interested in his stats in cloud computing and online marketing.


Prospective employers from Silicon Valley to New Yorklined up for the 5-foot-11 225-pound Mersy, whoweighed offers from several of them before settling onService-now.com, a cloud-computing company in SanDiego.


“It’s as close as I’ll ever get to feeling like an athlete ofany sort,” Mersy, 40, says, laughing. He joined as seniordirector of customer acquisition and industry marketingin February.


Tech workers like Mersy are coveted commodities as thehigh-tech industry undergoes its biggest hiring binge inmore than a decade. Not since the dot-com bubble of theearly 2000s has competition been so fierce. Would-beemployees are being enticed with fat contracts, heftybonuses and such freebies as ipads, meals, sportingevents and shuttle services. These and other perks arein play to hook top talent in engineering, social media,website development, product design and management.Many companies are going gangbusters with billboardsin the San Francisco Bay Area — such as Groupon’s“Do Something Massive” and Skype’s “Embrace YourTrue Calling” — to attract talent. The signs include linksto available jobs.

Google, Facebook and Microsoft are aggressively recruiting college students in hopes oflanding them before they graduate, says Gayle Laakmann McDowell, a former Googlesoftware engineer and author of The Google Resume: How to Prepare for a Career andLand a Job at Apple, Microsoft, Google, or Any Top Tech Company.The jump in tech hires highlights what some economists see as a bounce-back in the$805 billion U.S. tech industry that could eventually make a dent in the nationalunemployment rate of 8.8%. “The majority of the lost jobs in California were inconstruction and manufacturing, so gains in tech may help,” says Doug Henton, CEO ofmarket researcher Collaborative Economics. “The one sector where there is some hopeis in construction in clean tech.”

A lot of jobs to make up for

Nearly 150,000 tech jobs are expected to be added this year, says Sophia Koropeckyj,an economist at Moody’s analytics. In February, there were about 6.1 million tech jobs inthe U.S., up 2.4% from a year ago. Yet there’s a lot to make up for: From the second quarter of 2008 through   the first quarter of 2010, during the economic swoon, 308,000tech jobs were lost.

A surge in tech hires in California could portend an upturn for the overall U.S. economy,says Jesse Harriott, chief knowledge officer at online job site Monster.com.That’s in part because what’s good for tech will touch related industries. Areas such aswireless, computing and energy have an effect on “a substantial part of the economy,such as logistics, inventory management, enterprise coordination, even hybrid autos,says Shane Greenstein, a management professor at Northwestern University’s KelloggSchool of Management.

Entrepreneurs and venture capitalists foresee growth in wireless apps, online gamingand clean tech, he says. “It is not a classic tech boom, led by a big new opportunity like(Internet) browsing or Web 2.0, but a mixture of a few big and unrelated trends,”Greenstein says.

The job boom not only signals a potential reversal of fortune for the greater U.S.economy, but it also underscores just how hot the tech market is in the San FranciscoBay Area. The number of tech-related jobs in San Francisco is near its record 34,000 in2000, the pinnacle of the Internet bubble, according to analysis by real estate consultantJones Lang LaSalle. To accommodate so many hires, Zynga, Facebook and others aremoving into larger facilities.

Brian Gorby and his partner wanted to move to San Francisco from Atlanta. So the twoengineers applied for jobs, fielded multiple offers, accepted jobs and moved — all in lessthan four months.

“I was surprised by the speed of the process, especially among the bigger companies,”says Gorby, 28. He declined to name those companies because he may end up workingfor one of them in the future.

Jobs are so plentiful in Silicon Valley these days, that it’s more eye-opening whencompanies are retrenching rather than expanding. Apple, Google, Facebook and otherscontinue to hire, as they did during the worst of the economic downturn. During itsearnings call last week, Google said it added 1,900 jobs in its recently completed fiscalfirst quarter.

“It’s a money war for engineers,” says Dave macKeen, CEO of Eliassen Group, one ofthe largest tech-staffing firms in the Northeast. It works with Fortune 500 companies.“Folks are coming out of nuclear winter into the spring,” says Mark Hubbell, managingdirector at executive recruiting firm Vantage Partners, which has placed uppermanagement at Yahoo and start-ups, including Zynga. “If you are highly talented and riskaverse, a major brand (Facebook, Twitter, Zynga) is where you end up,” Hubbell says. “Ifyou’re talented and not risk averse, you start your own company.”

On the hunt for talent

Companies aren’t just hiring at a furious clip. They are poaching one another’s staffs fortalented engineers and online marketers, he says. At the South by Southwest Interactivefestival in Austin last month, representatives from the likes of Adobe Systems,Foursquare and eBay roamed the show floor, hoping to recruit workers.Social-networking firm Tagged offered limo rides from the Austin airport in hopes oflanding hot prospects.

For the first time in years, the “power is with the job seeker and not the employer,” saysMatthew Henson, a spokesman for Monster.com, which has seen a steep rise in techlistings in the United States. The same is true with online classified ads giant Craigslist,says CEO Jim Buckmaster.

“Help wanted” in the tech sector applies to the biggest companies as well as start-ups insearch of the next tech rock star.

Amazon.com, which recently added music storage to its cloud services, has thousands ofopenings for software engineers, product managers and others this year.

Auction giant eBay is bolstering its push into mobile commerce and other areas withaggressive hiring and acquisitions to add talent, says Mark Carges, eBay’s chieftechnology officer. For example, it announced Wednesday that it is buying the mobilecommerce site Where.

Some companies are just on a huge ramp-up, such as storage-area network providerVirtual Instruments. The 110-person company plans to double its workforce this year.Last year, it grabbed a key executive: former Symantec CEO John Thompson as itsCEO.

“The biggest attraction is success,” says Len Rosenthal, vice president of marketing atthe privately held start-up. “And we got through the worst of times with success.”Larry Ellison-backed NetSuite, a cloud-computing company, plans to add 500 employeesthis year. “Companies around the globe are now moving their complex businessprocesses to the cloud, and NetSuite is hiring like our hair is on fire to meet thatdemand,” says NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson.

linkedin kicked off the year with about 1,000 employees worldwide, twice what it had inearly 2010. It has plans to go public. “As we grow the company, we’re always on thelookout for top talent,” LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner says. “We also continue to attracttalented technologists in both the engineering and Data Science fields.”

Meebo, whose technology weaves your social networks and instant-messaging servicesinto one spot, is offering $10,000 bonuses to anyone whose job referral leads to thehiring of JavaScript engineers.

Making their pitchesThe competitive climate for tech talent has prompted firms — many of whom slashedworkforces and conserved cash the past few years — to now offer plenty of goodies.ShareFile, a start-up file-transfer company in Raleigh, N.C., offers a laundry list of perks:stock options, a break room stocked with free snacks and drinks, company sportsoutings , happy hours, weekly pick-up basketball games, a game room filled with Ping-Pong and pool tables, a Wii, and more.

Mersy heard it all from corporate suitors.

Prospective employers alternately pitched themselves as “hot” promising start-ups,nestled in cool neighborhoods such as San Francisco and bursting with venture-capitalcash. But it was the combination of enterprise customers and the relaxed atmosphere ofSan Diego that persuaded Mersy, previously vice president of marketing at Genius.com,to join Service-now.

For Kristal Pollack, who snagged a job with social-networking service Yammer, it camedown to one simple, unshakable tenet: company culture.

“I love the people and products here,” says Pollack, 29, a software engineer who joinedYammer in mid-March after fielding queries from six companies and talking to recruiters.
