To expand the talent force to further expand its business, the international version of TikTok, the short video application platform, is attracting the participation of Google high-tech companies such as Google and tiktok. In fact, last year, tiktok hired several executives from Google and Facebook. In order to expand its global business, tiktok has been increasing its recruitment efforts for employees from American technology giants on both sides of the Atlantic.
despite threats from senior U.S. government officials to ban tiktok, tiktok announced this week that it plans to employ 10000 people in the United States over the next three years. The company’s largest offices in the United States are located in mountain view, California, and New York.
so far, tiktok has employed 1400 employees in the United States. Dozens of these employees are from song and Facebook, including several well-known executives.
tiktok and Facebook declined to comment on the news, while Google did not immediately respond to requests for comment from the media.
globally, tiktok employs 172 former Google employees and 165 former Facebook employees, according to LinkedIn, a workplace social networking platform. In the United States, 79 of tiktok’s employees used to work for Google and 79 used to work for Facebook. Some of the employees hired by tiktok left Google and Facebook a few years ago, but many of them recently quit the Silicon Valley companies to join tiktok. In the past year, tiktok has become very popular.
tiktok’s recruitment of people like Blake Chandlee, who was Facebook’s vice president of global partnership business on the eve of his recruitment, is a cause for concern. CHANDLEY, who has worked for Facebook for more than 12 years, was hired by tiktok as vice president of global business solutions for tiktok, based in New York.
in addition, Chen Lin Lee left Facebook last year to join tiktok. Now he is tiktok’s director of partnership business in mountain view city. He worked on Facebook for nine years before joining tiktok, and before Facebook, he worked for Google.
tiktok is also recruiting professionals from U.S. technology giants to help expand its U.S. business. Kim Louie, who was Facebook’s hiring manager before March, is now tiktok’s head of talent recruitment, based in New York. Before working for Facebook, Louis worked at Google for technical talent.
Raymond Chen once worked in Google’s New York office for technology talent recruitment, but he left Google last month to become a member of tiktok’s talent recruitment team. His job is network security technology.
in Europe, tiktok is engaged in similar recruitment. Recently, a senior Facebook employee joined tiktok.
Trevor Johnson has joined tiktok this year as head of European marketing and global business solutions for tiktok. Prior to joining tiktok, Johnson was instagram’s director of marketing operations for EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), where he spent 11 years on Facebook.
Theo Bertram, Google’s senior manager of public policy in Europe, left last December to join tiktok, who is now tiktok’s head of European government relations and public policy.
David hoctor, who worked on Facebook’s global accounts team in London, joined tiktok in April 2019 to build a partnership between tiktok and the brand.
fanbytes is committed to helping brands advertise on social video platforms, and Timothy armoo, chief executive of fanbytes, told the media that employees from Google and Facebook have experience in developing advertising on video platforms.
“tiktok is at a critical juncture in the rising advertising business, it is opening up to the brand world, and they need people who can carry out their tasks on this vision,” he said
in addition, according to LinkedIn’s analysis, tiktok has employed 57 employees who used to work at Amazon and 40 employees who used to work at Apple.
so far, tiktok has about 4658 employees, according to LinkedIn. The parent company of the company is byte hopping in Beijing. It is reported that byte skipping had revenue of 17 billion US dollars last year and realized a profit of 3 billion US dollars.
the number of employees in the world has exceeded 60000 so far. It said in March this year that it hopes to have 100000 employees by the end of the year.
but tiktok offers the same high salaries to its employees. Tiktok is willing to pay a chief machine learning engineer an annual base salary of $246000, according to a technical employee who did not want to be identified. The technical staff claimed that because of the sensitivity of the discussion, he had been asked to take the role and speak on condition of anonymity.
