Meet David Seelochan, Principal Talent Acquisition Recruiter, EMEA
Based out of our Maidenhead office in the UK, I’m a Principal Talent Acquisition Recruiter within the highly skilled EMEA TA Team for Informatica. Currently, I am leading the Recruitment Process for Presales and Professional Services across EMEA. I joined in February 2018 thus have just concluded what has turned out to be the best year of my professional career to date.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what led you to join Informatica.
What led me to join Informatica first and foremost was its reputation as both a market leader and employer. From people I had spoken to within the marketplace and the information available on social media, Informatica had developed a strong reputation as an employer and a great place to work. Upon applying, this message was fast reinforced within my first two interviews with whom would form my immediate management team upon joining – James Corfield, Senior Manager (TA EMEA) and Jeremy Bushaw (VP TA). I quickly clicked with both upon conversation and the further I progressed in the process, the more confident I was this would be the best decision I could make at this point of my career.
What do you enjoy most about working at Informatica?
Above all else – the company culture is such a warm and welcoming one. There is very little ego from top to bottom of management scale but plenty of drive and desire to continue growing. You find yourself continually motivated to 'outperform' what you did yesterday.
Tell us three things most people don’t know about you.
If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why?
Superman. The ‘S’ symbol has always been my favourite across any of the comic book universes and more than anything else, this is how I want my children to view me! Their very own go-to person who can solve all of their problems faster than a speeding bullet and will protect them forever.
