“I’ve worked with a few technical recruiting firms since graduating App Academy in 2013. Almost all of them left a bad taste in my mouth – they tend to push you to interview at places you aren’t interested in, try to trick you into disclosing salary expectations that compromises your compensation negotiating position, and hassle you night and day to take offers in order to get their cut.

Working with TalentMatch was like a breath of fresh air. It made me feel like they were on my side throughout the process. TalentMatch found interesting companies to talk to, relevant to my previous experiences in both domain and technology stack. She gathered feedback throughout the interview process and sent me feedback that I wouldn’t otherwise have access to. One piece of feedback from the Eaze interview process encouraged me to send in a personal follow-up note to the CTO. That note got me an offer there, one that I was free to negotiate and wasn’t wrangled or hassled into accepting.

Taking the Eaze offer has allowed me to transition from Software Engineer to Senior Software Engineer to Engineering Manager, in a great engineering culture that I can see weaving in and out of the rest of my career. I finally get what it’s like to have a work family.

I’m thankful for TalentMatch. It’s given me the best job I’ve ever had.”
