Peter Harrison is the chief executive officer at Snagajob, where he couples his professional experience with a strong passion for helping people find the right-fit positions so they can maximize their potential and live more fulfilling lives. Peter works to position the company to job seekers and employers as a strategic partner that is helping transform the marketplace for on-demand hourly workers through highly innovative technology. Peter has more than 30 years of experience building and operating global technology-enabled services companies. From 2001 to 2012, Peter served as chief executive officer of GlobalLogic, a full-lifecycle product development services leader, building the company from 20 employees to more than 6,000. Prior to GlobalLogic, Harrison was senior vice president of Field Operations at Versata, a leader in business automation software. While at Versata, he led the growth of revenues from $1 million to $56 million in four years, culminating in an IPO in 2000, which at the time ranked in the top 25 best openings of all time. In this conversation we discuss:

  • The hourglass approach to scaling a company.
  • How and when to broaden or narrow a company for maximum growth.
  • Engaging employees and building a healthy company culture.
  • AND A WHOLE LOT MORE….
