ūüĎč Hi, I'm Brian.

I created DC Tech People to help the talented people of the DC area with their jobs, careers, and products.

In 2016, I took a job at a recruiting and staffing agency.

While there, I learned the same lesson over and over again: hiring is extremely painful for both companies and for candidates going through the process.

The problem is obvious - it's hard for companies to find candidates who are a good fit for their organization, team, and particular role, and vice versa.

At the same time, I was spending my nights and weekends diving into the tech world.

I started making some friends in the space while making District Flight Deals (2018 - 2021), and saw how helpful it was to talk to them.

That led me to the idea for DC Tech People, a place for, well...people in tech in the DC area to be able to connect specifically for stuff about our local tech space.

My full time gig is consulting/freelancing helping other companies automate their operations and data workflows, using tools like Parabola and Zapier.

If you want to connect, I'm on Twitter @dctechpeople, or you can email me at brian@dctechpeople.com or brian@briantsdawson.com.
