It’s not just technology companies that need technical talent. As a global retailer with expanding online sales – new categories, new products, new regions, and even a new website redesign in the works – lululemon was expanding its e-commerce team in San Francisco and adding new technical roles at its headquarters in Vancouver.

To make it happen, the in-house talent team needed helping hands with tech recruiting expertise and a network of tech talent.
