Refer a developer. Get a car. Really.

Refer a developer. Get a car. Really.

For the next two weeks, anyone who refers a developer or designer candidate to EnergySavvy who’s hired gets a Smart Car!

Is that you in there? It could be!

Why are we giving away cars for tech hires? What is this, 1999 all over again?

If you’re a techie in Seattle, you know the answer. The demand for the best developers and designers in Seattle is huge.

In the past, we’ve taken the well-trodden route of paying recruiters to troll LinkedIn, but we know that developers get sick of all the LinkedIn spam they get every day. We’d rather enlist all of Seattle to be our recruiters. We figure this makes our odds better.

And that’s where you come in. Refer your friends, family, or that random person you just met on the street that knows how to code. Not to say that we’ll take just anyone. Our hiring bar is, and will continue to be, very high. But if we do hire your candidate, you’ll get a fuel-efficient Smart Car, your friend gets a job with a cool tech company that is making a difference in energy efficiency and climate change, and EnergySavvy keeps growing. That’s what we call a win-win-win.

How to enter:

Contact us at joinus@energysavvy.com with an email introduction to the person you’re referring. Please put “EnergySavvy Referral” in the subject line, and include your referral’s email address in the body of the email.

The promo is only open to referrals for these positions:

  1. Lead Designer
  2. Senior Software Engineer
  3. Software Engineer

Here’s the fine print:

The promo is open to anyone in the U.S. who refers a developer or designer candidate. Eligible positions are listed under “Design” and “Engineering” on www.energysavvy.com/jobs/current-openings/. To enter, email us at joinus@energysavvy.com with an email introduction to your referral. Candidates who apply without a referrer aren’t eligible. If your referral is hired and still employed at EnergySavvy after 90 days, we’ll provide you with the cash to buy a 2013 Smart Fortwo Pure coupe. Don’t want a car? We’ll give you a $14,000 cash prize instead. We’ll accept referrals until Tuesday, March 26th If anything else comes up that is questionable, we’ll use our discretion to sort it out.
