Our host Sam jokes that there are three things certain in recruitment: death, taxes, and bad data. In this episode, Loxo’s CTO, Ilia Cheishvili, weighs in on the accuracy of this phrase. The two will answer questions about where software companies get their data, why some companies have better or worse data than others, and how Loxo approaches recruiting data.
