Joel Hides

Founder & CEO

After completing his Degree in Human Resources & Industrial Relations from University of Canberra, Joel began his technology recruitment career in Canberra in 2000. From there, Joel went on to gain a wealth of experience, building and developing successful and high performing recruitment teams for leading global firms in the United States, South East Asia and Australia.

Joel loves recruitment and is keenly passionate about continually building Emanate Technology’s brand and reputation for quality of delivery and ease of doing business with. His depth of experience, along with his proactive and consultative approach, adds great value to clients and candidates alike, whether it be advice on how to attract and retain top tier technology talent, or discussions around the market and career opportunities.

Joel understands the nuances of the Canberra recruitment landscape well. The skills and expertise he has developed throughout his career place him in good stead to deal with a challenging market, where demand for high calibre technology resources is often met with candidate shortages.

Mostly relaxed, sometimes frantic, Joel is always up for a chat about anything sport-related. His friends and family would consider his loyal support of the Golden State Warriors and the South Sydney Rabbitohs to be bordering on some sort of weird obsession, but he’s quite ok with that. When not mountain biking on weekends, he’s very lucky to be enjoying time with his beautiful wife and two amazing children.
