Yeniffer is the Senior Manager, Talent Experience at Loopio, heading up their recruitment practice with an amazing Talent team to support Loopio’s rapid growth in Ontario, BC and the US. She had her first taste of working in the technology sector by partnering with early stage startups in growing their teams in the GTA. The technology sector has been her bread and butter since, due to its pace and openness to new ideas and change. She enjoys helping companies scale and has seen first hand how impactful a good hire can be to the company's growth and culture. In her previous role at Rangle, she effectively helped double the company size and launched teams in the EU and USA. She is particularly passionate about working with teams and leaders that understand and value DEI, and are committed to building spaces that promote equity and inclusion at all levels for everyone. A key part of this work for her is continually upskilling and working with community organizations on how to open up access to opportunities to even more people that have been traditionally underrepresented in this sector.
