“Yves Greijn embodies a new brand of sourcers – take risks, iterate, improve. Repeat”
Yves is an innovative technical Sourcer who enjoys finding creative and efficient ways to identify and engage software engineering talent. Yves led all things people, culture & recruitment at SEOshop (An EMEA500 Ecommerce start-up) where he supported the acquisition by Lightspeed. After leaving Lightspeed, he built his own company ‘Maven’ which focused on sourcing process, execution and tooling, hiring solid engineering talent around the globe.
Yves has always had a passion to work with technology at scale. So when Facebook approached him in 2016, he decided to make the move to London and join the EMEA recruitment team. At Facebook, Yves had an EMEA wide remit where was challenged with finding and engaging senior engineers such as Chief Technical Architects of systems that can impact over 2 billion users. Currently, he is back building his own company Maven, consulting for clients like Uber, where he is tasked with hiring Engineering Leaders for Uber’s core-infrastructure domains in EMEA.
