If someone you know is looking to hire or be hired, please think of us.

We will take good care of anyone you refer. We can answer questions they have about the market or talk through ways to optimise their hiring process. We can even introduce them to other specialist recruiters if their skills are not in areas we know extremely well. So if you're unsure, refer them anyway.

Successful referrals are rewarded with your choice of a gift voucher, donation to charity or community event sponsorship to the value of $1,000. (Eligible three months after successful placement. Referral must be to a client or candidate we are not currently working with.)

Nadia Vu

Introduce yourself
Hello 👋 Im Nadia, a back end Ruby engineer based out of Melbourne! On my third coffee Ask Me Anything.

What do you do for work?
Currently, I am an Engineering Manager at CashApp. I moved over to CashApp as part of the Afterpay acquisition. I lead a team of 7 or so engineers.

What do you do outside work?
Outside of work, I love listening to true crime podcasts and watching true crime documentaries. Also the occasional sewing project. But sewing for me only has two modes, I either do it for every waking moment that I'm not at work, or not for months, there is no in-between.

Toughest work moment?
I lost a job that I really loved during the pandemic, that was pretty heartbreaking. Sometimes as a people leader, you see tough moments more often.

Most rewarding work moment?
Seeing my team present work that they have worked on over a couple of days/weeks/months at the all-hands meeting and just beaming with pride from the audience. When they not only nail the work but also nail the presentation. ✨

Your one-sentence work-related advice
One of my old managers used to tell me: "It's not brain surgery". Which, really helped put things into perspective.

Your one-sentence hiring-related advice
As the interviewer it’s just as important to bring your authentic self to the interview so the candidate has a better understanding of your company and your team.
