Ferguson_NicksmNick Ferguson, Technical Recruiter – Nick is one of the founding members of KJ Technical and has an extensive background in technical recruiting.  Prior to his time as a recruiter he was a Team Lead for Cbeyond, a national provider of voice, cloud, data, and managed services.  During this time, Nick realized he has an affinity for working with people and recruiting became a natural path.  He spent several years at EdgeLink, a boutique firm based out of Portland, Oregon.  At EdgeLink, Nick learned the industry and quickly rose to become a top biller because of his ability to listen, match, and deliver for candidates and clients.  He then spent over a year with Pearson, a global education company with a cutting edge software focus in the Denver-Boulder Metro area.  Nick was able to contribute quickly and helped shape the hiring strategy to build some of the top software teams in Colorado.  In addition to helping build and grow KJ Technical, Nick enjoys spending time with family and friends at Rockies games or in the mountains fishing, biking, and hiking.
