New Office Meets Austin’s Growing Demand for Tech Industry Talent

 

AUSTIN, Texas Spherion Staffing and Recruiting (Spherion) announced today it will open a new office to serve technology-related hiring needs in the Austin area. John Cho, an accomplished entrepreneur, IT programmer and recruiter, will open the new location on January 3 to fill permanent placement, contract, contract-to-hire and project-based roles in the IT field.

“Austin is the Silicon Valley of the south, and many major tech companies are moving to the area,” said Cho. “Given my background and knowledge of the market, it felt like the perfect time to bring a new IT recruitment office to Austin. I look forward to supporting job seekers and businesses in Travis County through Spherion Technology.”

Cho brings over a decade of extensive experience in information technology to Spherion Technology Austin, which includes staff augmentation, business development and management. During his time working with IT firms in New York, he specialized in recruiting for software development, network/cyber security and network/database development. 

In 2009, Cho relocated to Austin where he launched a restaurant management company. He sold the company in 2021 and since then, has been looking for an opportunity to get back into the IT staffing industry. Cho looks forward to leveraging his IT, recruiting and business management background as he launches Spherion Technology Austin.
