Hi, I am Lauren Jones and I am a Team Lead at Piper Maddox in Austin, TX.
I worked for 2.5 years in the Recruitment industry before coming to Piper Maddox. I started out within the medical staffing world and during my time there, I built strong relationships and helped my clients navigate their way through the start of the pandemic. I have a huge appreciation for our healthcare workers on the frontlines and those who are behind the scenes!
I transitioned into the clean tech market and was brought on to help develop our Energy Storage and Solar areas! We assist large companies, start-ups and those in-between with their staffing needs across multiple disciplines.
I began working in the recruitment industry after graduating with a Communication Studies degree from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX (Eat Em’ Up Cats!). I have always had a drive to connect with others, and I take a personable approach with my clients and candidates. I have found this builds a strong foundation of trust, which is essential when it comes to business growth!
Why Piper Maddox and the clean energy sector?
I love being outdoors; especially after the first year of the pandemic, I realized being outside and getting fresh air was essential for our minds. Being from the recruitment industry, I was pleased when I was approached with an opportunity to combine my love for nature with my work life. That all to be said, Piper Maddox has the passion, drive, mentality, and ethics I was looking for. They are a huge force when it comes to ensuring the right people are in these positions to help grow the industry; as well as identifying the pain points many companies face; all while keeping the environment at the forefront of their cause.
Our team works closely with both clients and candidates to reach like-minded career aspirations and goals. It is our job to make sure that we stay up to date with the industry trends, and I am always open to learning more! I appreciate clients and candidates who invest their time in myself and my team.
I am from the Dallas area originally but have found a home in Austin! I have lived in Austin for a few years, but you can constantly find me exploring the city because it is never ending! I spend most days with my dog, hiking and swimming and trying to find the best outdoor music. One day I aspire to run a marathon, and I will gladly take tips on strategies for this!
