Nick Livingston, Talent Acquisition Leader and Co-founder of

Hi I'm Nick. Most recently, I was the Director of Global Recruiting at TubeMogul, a Bay Area Advertising Technology company that grew from 60 to 360 employees through an IPO ($TUBE) in just 26 months. It was a wild ride, but learned a ton and was able to build a great recruiting team.

Prior to working at TubeMogul, I was the Director of Strategic Staffing at MTV Networks (Viacom), overseeing talent acquisition across the Global Digital Media and Interactive Technology organizations. I also worked for two SaaS HR technology companies and began my career as a technology headhunter in NYC.

While experiencing the exciting hyper-growth at TubeMogul, I concurrently attended the MBA program nights and weekends at the University of California, Berkeley Haas, graduating last May. I have two daughters under three, it's been a busy few years!
