As we reflect upon last year and press ahead into 2015, one thing is abundantly clear — the momentum of the tech industry shows no sign of letting up. In an almost unheard of twist of trends, Riviera saw the biggest quarter ever in Q4. Deals flowed right through the end of the year into the holidays, going to show that companies are aggressively searching and dedicated to finding the right talent.

We’re also seeing the business diversify, and it’s not just happening in the Bay anymore. It’s expanding nationally, particularly in NYC and LA. We’ve started to see client growth in both those areas, and we have recruiters stationed in both locales full-time. We’re making inroads into the financial services arena in NYC, and with media, transportation and other emerging growth companies in LA (more on this below).

To ensure the very best level of service to our diverse range of clients, we’re charging ahead with industry-changing ideas. We believe that in the long term, technology is going to have a significant impact on recruiting. We continue to invest in a collection of apps that help us work smarter, better and more effectively. Our internal data aggregation platform hit a major milestone in 2014 with the release of version 4.0, and we’re making various enhancements on an ongoing basis. We’re also expanding beyond internal tools with the release of client and candidate apps in 2015. Our new technology will ensure that clients, candidates and recruiters get the best possible results.

Here’s to a prosperous 2015!

The Sunniest of Tech Conferences: Techweek LA

The tech world may be solidly entrenched in the Bay Area, but there’s a growing presence in other metro areas like NYC and LA. So naturally, Rivi is growing in these locations as well. Recently, our own Eric Larson was on hand at Techweek LA to judge a startup competition.

We’re always aiming to learn a little something here at Rivi, and we recently had the opportunity to do so over on the Emerald Isle. The Web Summit’s gathering of thousands of tech leaders, innovators and enthusiasts offered plentiful insights on the industry.
