In episode 27, John Beck, Jr., welcomes to the studio, Aman Brar . Aman has an extensive background in leading technology companies through periods of high growth and has also held key corporate strategy and finance roles at Fortune 500 companies. As former president of Apparatus, Aman led the company through a $34.2 million acquisition by publicly traded and global consultancy, Virtusa, in 2015.
Recognizing the need for a method to boost recruiting productivity, Aman has teamed up with Kelly Lavin and Jared Adams to launch Canvas, the first enterprise-grade text-based interviewing platform that enables recruiters to screen more job candidates and market employment brands.
Companies are already turning to Canvas to interview a range of talent, from welders to engineers to salespersons.

Canvas is enabling these organizations to transform their reach and engagement with talent by designing their recruitment strategies in a way that aligns with the communication preferences of today’s workforce.

Before returning to Indiana for graduate school, Aman lived in Mountain View, Calif., and led a team responsible for the nation’s first consumer DSL broadband service.
