Posted April 11, 2019 04:05:00 Republican software engineer resumes posted online by Craigslist have raised concerns among Republicans about the impact that technology companies have had on jobs and the economy.
The company’s search tool, called Racket, has become increasingly popular in the wake of President Donald Trump’s election and his executive orders on immigration and national security.
“I have been working for a software company for over a decade and have never seen this type of behavior before,” wrote a candidate in a job ad posted Tuesday.
“This is a company with an extremely large global reach, and if this happens, the company’s employees could be unemployed for years.
The candidates have to be very cautious, however, as they have to know the company is very conservative and is a very high profile employer.”
Another candidate said they “do not want a candidate to be an immigrant, because they have a lot of respect for the culture and people in this company.”
“We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with strong leadership skills who will be working to support the Racket platform and the company at all times,” the company said in a statement.
“Racket is a technology company, and this job posting suggests the hiring process was not done well,” said Jessica Vaughn, an economist and former adviser to Sen.

“This type of hiring behavior is not acceptable in today’s workforce.
We need to hire smart people who are dedicated to doing the right thing, not those who are willing to do anything to make the world better.”
Racket, a company that has been under investigation by the Department of Justice for its immigration practices, has faced backlash in recent months for a variety of questionable practices, including its use of robots to remove human employees from jobs.
The tech firm said it will investigate the claims and will remove the ads if they are found to violate the company policies.
“We’ve had several reports of this type recently, and we are taking them seriously,” the statement from the company read.
“Racket values diversity and is committed to hiring people of all backgrounds, experiences, and backgrounds.”
