Megan Tamisiea Senior Recruiter, Awesomeness

Megan Tamisiea didn’t start out to become a Recruiter, but she is very proud she did. Her background is in writing and improv comedy, and that helped her along the way to Recruiting. After grad school, she was hired by Groupon and was quickly tapped to be an Editorial Recruiter for them. Megan helped triple the Editorial department in one month. Her skills expanded to recruit for the Sales, Marketing, Internship Program and Technology teams there. Recently, Megan recruited for Loot Crate, a subscription box company for geeks, gamers and nerds. There, she filled roles for every department throughout the company and helped grow their numbers by more than 100 people in one year.

Now, Megan proudly works at Awesomeness, a multi-platform media company. Included under the Awesomeness banner are AwesomenessTV, a leading destination for original programming serving the global Gen Z audience; the ATV Network, a global creator community; Awesomeness Films; DreamWorksTV (kids-focused content) and Awestruck (millennial-mom focused content). Awesomeness’s investors include: NBCUniversal/Comcast, Verizon and Hearst Media.

When she has spare time, she hangs out with her husband and her 3-year-old son. She also loves a good, historical ghost tour and craft beer.
