Eric Lenz
Client Lead Recruiter
Eric is a listener and problem solver with more than 3 years of staffing and recruiting experience specializing in technical, legal, and the creative fields.

Eric grew up in the Chicago area and eventually relocated to Boston to pursue a degree in architecture, a childhood dream. After completing internships in the field, his interest began to wane. This was when he reached out to staffing agencies and was placed at Boston University School of Dental Medicine. He eventually went back to the agency who placed him, convinced them he would be a good recruiter and here he is 3 years later. Outside of the office, he stays active by playing sports, traveling, and playing with his dog, Odin.

Business Development Manager
Our team is growing and we are currently seeking a Business Development Manager to drive sales and foster partnerships while working in collaboration with an amazing group of individuals. Since Cloutera is a startup, just launching its RPO services in July 2016, you will initially be responsible for customer validation and searching around a series of unknowns. You will need to be agile enough to deal with daily change, operating “without a map,” yet have fun helping us create messaging and a brand.
In the early stages of the role, you will be doing both in- and out-bound sales, so you will be managing the entire sales process for our clients from cold calling and working the field through networking with the initial goal of setting up five meetings a week.
