Hope you have a sweet and wonderful Valentine’s Day!
Here at the House of CyberCoders, love is in the air! Everyone wore pink or red and we were treated to a delicious, hearty lunch! Then, President Heidi Golledge hand delivered delicious cupcakes to each valued member of our CC family!
CyberCoders Support Manager Robinson Kapano is not only an amazing CyberNinja but also the reigning Ping Pong Champion for 2014!
To crown the champion, Kapano and Aielli went head to head during lunch at the CyberCoders HQ game room. Pizza was served to all the spectators and players. To win, the players needed to be the first to earn 21 points and he must win by at least two points. Only one game decided all.
As the winner, Kapano took home $1,000 grand prize!
Here at CyberCoders, the tech team and talented recruiting team work hard and play hard!
Later, we caught up with Kapano to ask him a little more about his amazing win. “The best strategy is to perfect hitting the ball correctly,” Kapano says. “At first you may be used to how you hit, but, if you want to get better, there is a subtle stroke that allows you to spin and hit the best regular shots.”
At the start of every year, the House of CyberCoders gets together to recognize, applaud and reward those who went above and beyond to achieve their goals in the year before.
This year’s annual awards luncheon was a very special one!
The CyberCoders team worked hard to better the lives of over 2,900 candidates in 2013. Every quarter was a record quarter for CyberCoders. Best of all, we have watched our CyberCoders family grow by 14 percent in just one year!
This is all thanks to the fabulous support, ambition and teamwork at the House of CC. To recognize the highest performing recruiters, we decorate our top recruiters with Gold, Silver or Bronze accolades at the Q4 Annual Awards Luncheon.
Whether it’s the highest number of placements, most time spent on the phones, hardest working or most valuable professional on the tech teams, we love to recognize our team in a number of categories.
Plus, we also recognize a few outstanding funny awards as well, like best hair (just like your high school yearbook!).
Here are some highlights from the awards celebration!
The CyberCoders Annual Awards took place at the beautiful Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach! It was a pleasantly sunny day for January!
Talented executive recruiters came from our Boston, LA and New York offices to celebrate altogether as one big family.
Some of the top achievers gathered to perform a little song they prepared just for the team!
Presenting CyberCoders Top Achievers of 2013! *Applause*

The CyberCoders team has quite a few achievements to celebrate this year!
CyberCoders had its best year in history, placing over 2,500 candidates in fabulous new jobs. Twenty-six new talented recruiters joined the CyberCoders family, and we continue to see growth each year!
We are especially thankful for our wonderful clients and team for making this year a great success.
To celebrate, the House of CyberCoders’ exciting, exuberant and spirited culture was in full swing on Saturday night as we came together for a Great Gatsby Gala—CyberCoders style!
The event took place at LA’s Majestic Halls, a timeless architectural masterpiece built in 1921! The Majestic Halls was the ab-so-lute-ly perfect setting for our Gatsby goodness, including a sea of spiffy 1920s costumes, live swing music, Trapeze artist, mixologist and even a Great Gatsby cast!
Here is a glimpse into the spectacular night!
Upon arrival, we were immediately welcomed with this swanky antique car. What a perfect photo op to kick off the evening! Did we mention the elephant in the room?
Here is a glimpse into the spectacular night!
This gorgeous elephant (the same one from the film Water for Elephants) stood majestically in the lobby for our viewing pleasure.
These lovely ladies dressed to the nines!
Here’s the gorgeous, historic Majestic Hall decor!
Last Friday, the CyberCoders family headed over to the beautiful Balboa Bay Club for some lunch, laughs and—of course—an astounding collection of performances by 17 CyberCoders teams.
This is a beloved, annual tradition at the House of CC, in which each team prepares an amazing song, skit or dance with a Christmas and CyberCoders theme. We certainly took the house down with our singing voices!
The talent in our group astounds the eye and ear. :) Check out some highlights:
The performances started off with a bang with Team Small Direction, starring little dancing elves! :)
Next up, a fantastic #hashtag #skit by the Deals of Fortune!
TKO performed a clever, funny song!
The Devs Without Hats geared up for their phenomenal performance!
The No. 1 winners: The Playa Vista Social Club and their amazing throwback to the 90s, featuring Boyz to Men, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls and Michael Jackson! Bravo!Read More
When the House of CyberCoders heard about the devastating typhoon in the Philippines, we were all deeply saddened.
For one CyberCoders teammate, the disaster was particularly personal.
“I lived in Tacloban, Leyte for about a year or so,” says CyberCoders Executive Recruiter Jennifer Valesquez. “I was about three or four years old and my father was developing the area—building the infrastructure such as roads, bridges, etc.” In fact, her paternal grandmother is from the area as well. She has some fond childhood memories of the affected area.
Velasquez generously shared these precious photos of her father when he was developing the area as part of his company, RJV Construction:
“Luckily, I don’t have any more family left in the area. My childhood best friend lost her house, but she was able to escape with her daughter prior to the typhoon.” Unfortunately, Velasquez’s family did lose their house and farm as well.
“Seeing the aftermath photos really haunted me,” Velasquez says.Read More
CyberCoders wishes you a wonderful, prosperous and delicious Thanksgiving!
Here at the House of CyberCoders, we have so much to be thankful.
This is our 14th annual Thanksgiving feast! Each CyberCoders team member brought their families and either an appetizer or dessert, and the House of CC provided the main entrees. Everyone votes for their favorite dishes!
While we feasted, the men of CyberCoders Movember gathered together and received a smooth shave to culminate the month-long health initiative. It was a joyful day as the Cyber kids enjoy tons of games, prizes and treats too!
Check out CyberCoders Thanksgiving highlights:
Mr. Gobble, the vegetarian turkey, won first place for best appetizer presentation!
Toys and prizes galore!
So many fun prizes, so little time! Each Cyber kid won a prize for doing a cool trick. Some notable highlights: Head stand, playing the violin and giving CyberCoders CEO Heidi Golledge a hug! :) Pure joy.
The Cyber Men of Movember get ready for their clean shaven look!Read More
The House of CyberCoders has been collecting supplies to be shipped to the Philippines to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan. Together, we filled up a dozen+ boxes of goods to send to aid the surviving victims.
We collected tons of canned goods, first aid kits, candles, matches, solar powered lanterns, clothing, soap and much more.
Typhoon Haiyan was one of the largest tropical storms to shake the land in the world. At 190 mph, the typhoon has affected millions of people. It was one of the deadliest storms to hit the country. Our thoughts are with the victims of this terrible tragedy.Read More
