I have been a technology recruiter in the Pacific Northwest for close to 15 years. I have extensive experience in both Microsoft and OpenSource technologies. My reputation is strong in the tech community because I know what is important to technologists and how to communicate effectively with them. It also helps that I love technology and understand it quite well. This knowledge helps me as a recruiter because the engineer or developer I'm speaking with knows that I actually understand what they are saying. It means a lot to them.

Amanda is a great recruiter! She really focuses on finding the right fit - both from a technical/skills perspective and from a personality/culture perspective. She takes the time to understand your strategy, your culture and what it takes for people to be successful in your specific organization. Managers love working with her - she is very down to earth and builds relationships quickly. She has filled a wide variety of positions for me (Engineering, Sales, Marketing, IT, Accounting, etc), but is particularly strong in the technical space, which can often be the hardest to fill. I have worked with Amanda at two different companies and have referred her to fellow HR leaders - she's amazing!
