Throughout LGBT Pride Month, CA Technologies celebrated by spotlighting a few of our amazing employees from the LGBT Community. Even though Pride Month is technically past, we have one more outstanding employee we’d like to introduce.
Meet Jesse Santa Cruz, Coordinator, Talent Acquisition, who is based in Boulder, CO. Jesse began working for CA two years ago. He originally worked for Rally Software, then helped the recruiting team when CA acquired that company.
We asked Jesse to describe exactly what a Coordinator, Talent Acquisition does.
“I ensure that candidates and interview teams meet on time and have meaningful conversations that lead to stellar hires for CA. A typical day for me includes tons of interview scheduling for roles across the country, meetings with the local HR team, and assisting the Talent Acquisition Marketing team with tasks such as social media analytics and copy editing.”
“This is my first role, and I’m glad that I kick-started my career with CA!”
Jesse says that the culture in the Boulder office has had a great impact on him as a member of the LGBT community.
“I have worked in places where I struggled with being completely open with my co-workers with what I do on weekends, who I go on dates with, and what my true interests and hobbies are. The team here in Boulder is judgement free.”
When Jesse isn’t at work, he enjoys getting outside for a hike. “Living in Boulder, Colorado, the outdoors is king!” You can also find him sifting through thrift shops for quirky graphic tees, and “attempting to emulate Bob Ross paintings with small yet incremental success.”
What would Jesse say to a member of the LGBT community considering a career with CA Technologies?
“Bring What You Bring! I would tell them that if they are looking for a job in tech, CA is a great place to be. CA’s clear dedication in messaging, as well as actions about increasing diversity is proof that the stale ‘hush hush’ corporate environment is being disposed of with the culture of inclusion that CA Technologies is striving to create.”
