Hey, I’m Alexandra but mostly known as Alex or Al. I joined Signify in October 2016 as my first recruitment role and I’ve never looked back! After studying marketing and working in retail for a long period of time, I’ve been able to transfer many of those skills over to help build relationships with clients and candidates, as well as, being able to pick up market knowledge to help me be a specialist within Scala and Functional Programming. 

It’s been an amazing two years with Signify and I have achieved more than I ever thought I would in various different ways. I’ve been able to attend some amazing conferences and travelled to beautiful cities with the chance to meet some very influential people from all around the world (Martin Odersky included!). Most of all, I’ve loved the journey that I’ve been on with everyone at Signify!

Outside of recruitment, you’ll find me watching Netflix, shopping, or cooking with my friends and family. Family is everything to me and I’m very close with them, so I make sure to spend as much time with them as possible. One of my goals for the last year was to get back into a healthy and positive mindset and it is something I’ve fully incorporated into my everyday lifestyle. This has helped me both physically and mentally, in all areas of my life.

I love being part of the Scala community and helping anywhere/anyone that I can with workshops, meetups, general questions and most of all, finding someone their dream role! With Signify expanding and with the goal to open an office in America, my main focus in 2019 is to be a specialist in the US Scala market.

If you are looking for a new role or Scala engineers to join your team, please do get in touch to see how I can help you!
