NOTES OF INTEREST:
A New Way to find Jobs in Racing: Racer Jobs will place a heavy emphasis on NASCAR and IndyCar related opportunities, both in the garage and the front office. Everyone from engineers to accountants and from salespeople to mechanics. It will also include many jobs from other professional, semi-professional and amateur series. An additional focus will be put on tracks, as well as regional and local racing opportunities.
Why Racer Jobs? Racer Jobs grew out of a need to better organize, promote, and attract talented new candidates to the racing industry. Not only will the platform be an easy way to recruit and apply but over time will also go in-depth and behind the scenes on certain jobs and organizations to better tell the story of each position. In addition, it will be a dedicated channel for applicants to receive advice about developing a career in motorsports through the ability to create and maintain a profile of their skills and experience so they can be found by companies actively recruiting.

Prestige Staffing: Specializing in these industries for contract, contract to-hire, and permanent placements, Prestige is positioned with offices across the US to find high quality talent for Racing Teams, Series, and their associated partners.
Colin Smith, President, Racing America: “The launch of Racer Jobs grew out of a fundamental belief that the racing industry can benefit from a centralized, stakeholder-controlled platform that communicates and promotes the incredible opportunities that exist within the sport. Even though this project is supported by NASCAR teams, this is also a vehicle to bring both new and experienced candidates into many different sectors and operations across all racing, from the professional level down to grassroots opportunities.”
Jonathan Marshall, Managing Director, Race Team Alliance: “One of the biggest challenges we regularly hear from our member teams is the difficulty in finding a steady stream of candidates to work in their organizations. We believe with the creation of the Racer Jobs platform; we will not only be able to aggregate the best and brightest candidates in order to help teams fill this need but also provide the general racing industry a valuable service, thus contributing to RTA’s mission to help the sport grow.”
Derek Nusbaum, Regional Vice President, Prestige Staffing: “We’re excited to partner with, and promote Racer Jobs, and to create this relationship with RTA Media. We know that all race teams require top notch professionals to maintain their leadership in motorsports. We’re confident and excited to play a role in their long-term success.”
