Rick Deller Perl Recruitment Specialist

Sector: Technology

Recruiter Biography:

I have extensive recruitment experience across Finance, IT and Digital Media, joining Eligo in April 2012 to lead a team of highly talented recruitment consultants specialising in Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, Java , Microsoft technologies and all things Linux.

I recruit for all levels within Open Source, having placed 1st Line support positions right up to CTO, as well as developers across the board from Junior Developer to Senior Developer - both Web based and more system based. Although I am an all round recruiter I do specialise in and have particular success in working with clients to place those hard to fill roles.

As a leading Open Source Recruitment Specialist with a focus on Perl, I have access to candidates and clients across the globe. This has given me the opportunity to attend multiple sector meet ups. I’m regularly invited to speak at leading Industry Events as a Open Source Recruitment expert and have spoken at  London Perl Workshop, YAPC:EU, Dynamic Language Conference, and FLOSSUK to name a few. This experience allows me to understand in real depth both client and candidate expectations and desires, forming an excellent relationship with both parties.

why we loved TPCiG 2018 and why you should attend next year

Another year, another Perl Conference. It has been my sixth year attending and first-year co-organising The Perl Conference and this year’s TPCiG was just as enjoyable as previous.

The Age of Automation: Mind the AI Skills Gap

Back in 2016 I discussed the differences between the roles of a data scientist and data engineer and their equal importance within a big data team. Fast forward to 2017, and the predicted increased demand for big data professionals, data scientists and data engineers has led to a huge AI skills gap that causes a headache for businesses wanting to bring in specialists to take full advantage of AI’s full capabilities. What is causing the AI skills gap? The rising tide of AI and automation has led to increased benefits for businesses as a result of being able to upgrade legacy systems and improve data analytics, which in turn leads to results such as improved operational efficiency,...
