April is our Senior Technology Recruiter who has a decade of experience recruiting in the Creative and Technology industries. She began her career in university admissions and recruitment at an arts college, which lead her to project management and recruitment for creative staffing agencies. From junior to executive roles, April recruits for all tech and marketing roles (UX developer, writers and researchers, informational architects, technical positions, front end development, back end development, analytics, brand, go-to market, email, SEO/SEM, strategy). What motivated her to make her career in recruiting? “It’s people helping people, and I love to build lifelong relationships, problem solve, and educate. Plus, creative tech is super cool.” April has her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon.
April is California-born and Oregon-raised. While living in Bend and Eugene, she used to manage a ranch, train horses, and train birds of prey! If April isn’t at the office, chances are she’s climbing a literal mountain or catching the next big wave. She is a self-proclaimed “wannabe” big mountain skier, rock climber, alpinist, trail runner, backpacker, and total amateur surfer. She also collects passport stamps as much as she possibly can! “The mountains inspire me. Being challenged inspires me. Watching people tackle their fears and make time to do what they love inspires me. And, of course, JK Rowling inspires me because she’s a brilliant genius.”
What do she think sets Motus apart? “In a word? Authenticity. The values, the people, and the work we do – it’s authentic and real. I truly feel like I am a part of something great, being on the Motus team.”
