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.)

Great jobs for great people

These roles are with companies we’d want to work at ourselves. Companies who care about code quality, and creating a work environment where technical people like you can thrive.

Whether you’re actively searching for a new position, or just curious about what your next move might be, we’re here for you. Use us a sounding board, and gain the insights of a team that has seen it all.
