"I got in touch with Ryan from Signify via LinkedIn after seeing the positions they were recruiting people for. Then, I worked with Signify not only to find my next job, but to find my replacement in the company I was leaving. After explaining my preferences in terms of companies, roles and different Scala frameworks, I was very quickly introduce to a fair amount of companies which matched my expectations. When recruiting my replacement, they always provided relevant CVs to the position we needed to cover. We started the interview process with a few great Scala software engineers until we found the right match for the position who’s level was excellent. In a market were it is hard to find Scala developers, Signify managed to find really good candidates we could chose from, demonstrating a very good understanding of the technical side of Scala, but also, of the Scala community.
It was a pleasure working with them, I will always recommend Signify when it comes to hire great talent within the Scala community."
Senior Software Engineer, Technology Media Company, London
"I was introduced to Ryan Adams and Signify through a friend that knew that I wanted to find a better job. Ryan was comfortable to interact with, forthcoming, and very quickly made an effort to understand what I was looking for and how he could help. We talked about what I was looking for in a company, geographical options I was open to and whether I wanted to talk to several companies or focus on one. Vey quickly we agreed on a series of guidelines that worked for me.
The first company that Ryan introduced me to made me an offer and I will work for them. It looks like a good company to work at and it was a good offer. Ryan had an influence in this, helping to make my case when the selection process had a bumpy start and nudging the company to make me a good offer so I stopped other selection process I had open at the time.
All in all, the process was fast, straightforward, and of course successful, and I am very grateful for Ryan's help along the way. I can (and will) wholeheartedly recommend him to other candidates."
Senior Software Engineer, Health Technology Company, London
"I was recommended Ryan at Signify by an ex-colleague of mine. I was specifically looking for a senior Scala position and Signify’s expertise in Scala appealed to me. Ryan quickly assembled a concise list of suitable roles that really sounded appealing. I had interviews lined within the day. All the companies that I was going for had multi-stage recruitment processes but Ryan organised this well for me. I received offers from all of my choices."
Senior Scala Engineer, Technology Data Company, London
"Finding a new job is always a stressful and time consuming process. Being able to find a company that fits your personal desires and career goals, being able to manage the interview process from first to final, and negotiating terms, all while having a 9-to-5 job that requires your full attention and availability can really become a barrier to people. Mitchell managed all of those things. He found a company that I am excited to join and can really grow with, secured an offer that more than checked all the boxes, and worked with me through all the things in my own life that, while taking priority, could have persuaded the company to go with a different candidate. He was professional, understanding, effective, and I certainly recommend Mitchell to anyone in the job market."
Software Engineer, New York City

"I worked with Susan Barrance, on securing my contract in Amsterdam. My experience of her is excellent. Really upfront and honest about every detail from the very beginning. I got a tech-test within 1-2 days of her first contacting me about the role and an interview date was quickly scheduled after this. I guess this being testament to a genuinely solid relationship with the hiring manager over there – they clearly trust her.
We had some ups and downs a long the way with getting feedback from the client and a few other things, but during this time Susan was really supportive always trying to keep me focused on the things that mattered and keeping me regularly updated even when there wasn’t any news.
She’s a very skilled recruiter and on a personal level, a really pleasant charming person to work with as well."
Senior Software Engineer, Amsterdam
"I want to thank Mitchell for finding me at the moment when I had to find a job as soon as possible. I did not expect such high professionalism, just after one screen call, Mitchell found me my dream job, nice and easily.

Mitchell supported me during the whole process, giving some useful pieces of advice such as showing self-dedication."

I was helped in every stage of the process and I will suggest Signify to other colleagues."
Software Engineer, Elsevier

Scala Engineer, Germany
"I took a step back in career from a relocation and as a result was constantly getting roles that I am overqualified for from various recruiters, even though I said clearly that I am not looking for those. Rachael is the first one who actually read my past experience, understood what I wanted right away and worked patiently to find me a role which put me back to a leadership position. During the whole process she was always very friendly, responsive and utterly professional. I would definitely recommend her and look forward to a long working relationship with her into the future."

I won't hesitate to recommend Rachael and Signify to any Scala developer looking for a new job."
Scala Developer, Dreamlines
"Using this service has been a real breath of fresh air! Rachael was my representative and was always available, friendly and quick to respond. Being a person who is normally hounded by recruiters on an hourly basis, I found Signify to be calm and easy to work with. No “can you do an interview now?” or “how long will you be?”, but instead, a “what would be the best time for you?” and “would that be okay?”. I found it was a relaxing service that fit around me. Unlike other companies who concentrate on who can get them the commission the fastest."
Senior Staff Engineer, Medidata
"I worked with Rachael for several months, she took the time and patience to understand my requirements and we only focused on positions interesting for me.

I can definitely recommend Signify and I’d be happy to use their services again."

So overall it was a very pleasant experience."
Scala Developer, Amsterdam
Thank you, Mitchell. I could not have asked for a better recruiter. I have spoken to multiple recruiters and he is at the top of the list in every aspect. Not only did he secure me a role at a well established company, he went above and beyond to make sure I received the best possible offer. 11/10 would recommend!

All the roles presented to me were a good fit for my skills, which is not always the case with other recruiters, and the actual jobs were interesting. She was proactive with scheduling of appointments (both via a phone call or in person), making sure I have enough headroom to prepare well and be on time, also when providing me with focus areas for each appointment. It was an enjoyable experience."
Senior Scala Developer, Schibsted Media

Scala / Big Data Engineer, Paris
"When Elisha contacted me through LinkedIn, I couldn’t believe that after only a short time period I was offered a Scala role in Australia, which I wished for, complete with a relocation package for me and my family! Elisha was amazing helping me with every step of the way until I got an offer, ensuring that everything went correctly. More so, the Signify team together (Carl and Daniel) along with Elisha made an effort to find me a position in a country and with conditions that matched what I was looking for. It was a pleasure working with you and it wouldn’t have happened without you."
Big Data Engineer, Quantium

Senior Scala Developer, BrightTALK
"When Rachael contacted me a few months ago, I literally thought: “not again, another annoying recruiter from a random recruitment company”. It turns out I was completely wrong. This was one of the best experiences I’ve had when finding a new job from beginning to end. With her support and help throughout the whole interview process, we found out the perfect role for me to develop my skills as a Scala Engineer and grow as a professional. Overall, it has been a great pleasure working with Rach and Signify Technology."
Scala Engineer, Fintech Company
"It was an amazing experience with Rachael and Signify Technology in finding an appropriate opportunity to work in Scala ecosystem in Europe.

"These guys are real professionals. Glenn and I worked together to find the opportunities that best matched my skills. The expectations from both sides were defined right from the beginning, we were talking often so I was never in the dark, and I always had the chance to give feedback so we could adjust the course. Communication between us was awesome, and the whole process of finding an interesting Scala job way smoother than I could thought. Keep up the good work!"
Scala Engineer, OVO Energy
"I worked with Signify over a period of a few months. Having previously worked in the domain of Data Science consultancy I was looking for a completely new career so what mattered to me the most was that the environment that I’d be working in was supportive but always continuously challenging to improve my Scala competency. Signify, and in particular Daniel Lawson, understood the importance of these requirements and throughout the whole process were transparent and offered a refreshingly different service to most other recruitment agencies I’ve worked with."
Scala Engineer, ITV
"Rachael did an amazing job of finding me a role that really suited me. She's changed my view on recruiters completely, never pressuring me into interviewing for something I didn't want to. Was also prompt at answering questions and made sure that I was kept up to date through the entire process."
Scala Developer, Sky
"I know Signify because they are mainly dedicated to providing jobs in Scala. After some of Signify’s events where Martin Odersky, creator of the Scala language participated, I started to follow Signify Technology on Linkedin and Twitter. Immediately several members of the Signify team began to write to me about all job opportunities. However, they were all written in English, my English level is low, so it was not possible to follow up on the process. Mitchell went further because he started writing to me in Spanish and searching for the most suitable positions.
One day, Mitchell wrote to me to offer me job opportunities and the one that best suited my English limitations was a client in Spain, so we immediately started and quickly begun the interview process. It was a company that worked in Madrid and that had the characteristics that I was looking for (Architecture oriented to microservices, Scala Language).
Mitchell is one of the most impressive and hardworking people I know. Every morning he wrote to me to greet me and give me advice for the interview process, he was always aware of all the details. Mitchell's role in the interview process and definition of my salary expectations was excellent and decisive for all the support I did for myself and to achieve the main objective of obtaining my new job. He is one of those people that you always want to have in your contacts for future opportunities. Good luck to Mitchell and the Signify Technology team who do a great job to achieve the dream of their candidates. Continue with that effort that is observed through Linkedin and Twitter and I hope one day to be in one of your events (Scala in the City)."
Scala Engineer, Madrid
"Working with Rachael has been an absolute pleasure! She was so easy to talk to and always kept her promises in terms of keeping me updated - also, she ensured a colleague was there to support me in her absence. I didn’t feel like just another person - she took time to get to know me and what type of role I was looking for. Much appreciated for helping me find this awesome job abroad."
Scala Engineer, Zalando
"I had several interviews with recruiters before I met Alexandra from Signify Technology. None of them were that helpful for me. She made me feel that we were a team with the aim to find me a job. Always kind and available to provide me with any further information I required. She was the key to entering London's working life."
Web Developer, Software Company
"In last year's Scala Exchange, I ran into an old co-worker, who casually, while chatting, mentioned that "If you ever want to look for a job, try Signify Technology; guaranteed results". The time came and I applied and got in contact with Glenn Holman. Glenn asked specific and to-the-point questions, had a great deal of understanding for both the skills required for the roles on offer, as well as how my particular skill set might fit, and ultimately produced only roles that were tailor-fit to my wants, skills, experience level, and requested remuneration. The interviews were arranged promptly and in a very timely fashion, and all communication was straightforward and to the point. All in all, I would agree that my old co-worker was right."
Scala Developer, Worldpay
"I’d never previously worked with a Scala recruiter, however having Alex’s help and advice has made finding a new role a completely straight forward and stress-free experience. From the outset she had a genuine grasp of what I was looking for and only put forward positions that were really relevant. As Interviews progressed, she did a brilliant job keeping me updated and always responded promptly with feedback. I ultimately secured a fantastic new position that ticked all of my boxes (including the “nice to haves”). I’d have no hesitation recommending Alex to others and she’d be my first point of contact if I was ever seeking a new position in future."
Scala Software Developer, BrightTalk

Contract Data Engineer, Paris
"It was a pleasure working with Glenn from Signify Technology. Unlike many tech recruiters out there, he understands the field well and all of the roles he provided were highly relevant for my area of expertise and skill level. He was very efficient at organising and following processes through, and in the end secured a better salary than I expected. I will definitely work with him again if I need a recruiter specialising in functional programming jobs."
Scala Developer, ITV
"We all know how hard it is to find a Junior Scala role these days, but with the help of Rachael, it becomes an easy task.

"I have worked with Ryan at Signify on two separate occasions, and he has always listened to what I'm looking for and then generated ideas and found opportunities based on those objectives. He was never pushy and always made sure that I was fully informed and as prepared as I could be at every step of the process. This approach resulted in going from application to an offer and acceptance of that offer in only a week, which was a fantastic result for everyone involved. I would definitely work with Ryan again"
Senior Software Engineer, Global Investment Bank
"I have really enjoyed working with Ryan at Signify. From the beginning, the team was hyper reactive and very sharp.

Scala Contractor, Medidata
“Susan has made the job hunting process a pleasure. From her insights when talking through the available opportunities, to then being very communicative and helpful throughout the interview process, all the way through to accepting an offer. I highly recommend her and Signify technology, a pleasure to work with!"
Scala Team Lead, Energy Company
“Susan Barrance worked close with me on an application for a software development contract in Germany. The application was unusually difficult and complex. First I had to evaluate the contract itself, which was to be for a fast moving client on a highly distributed international team. Then, once I had completed the interview process, we had to negotiate intricacies of German tax procedures, the role of limited companies, and issues of payroll setup. At every stage of this process Susan's help was invaluable. She was prompt and conscientious in providing important information and updates. She was unusually patient as I struggled with unfamiliar application procedures. She helped with all manner of tedious but crucially important questions. I could not have completed this application--which eventually proved successful--without Susan's help. I recommend Susan without hesitation for advice and high-quality assistance with the most challenging recruiting task"
Senior Scala Contractor, Fintech Company
“After becoming bored with the Scala market in my home country, I decided it was time for a change and the opportunities that Signify had for a new environment were very appealing. Jack Clement helped me secure a role in Germany and ensured that everything was covered with the move. Would happily return to Signify for my next contract somewhere in Europe !"
Scala Contractor, Software Company
“During the whole recruitment process Carl was very concrete, fast, supportive and - the most important - effective. I think that Carl has rare ability to "feel the situation" and recognize the needs of candidates and companies, which helps him a lot with finding good arguments for tough subjects. It was a rather enjoyable, short adventure then recruitment process."
Software Engineer, Grand Parade
“The recruitment process was well organized, communication was excellent and expectations were properly set. Glenn helped through the whole process and made sure that every next step was prepared in advance. It has been a pleasure working with Signify, they are true professionals."
Software Engineer, Zalando
“Job hunting is usually a frustrating and stressful process, and often recruiters make it even worse. Fortunately for me, I stumbled upon Charlie and I have to say it's the first time the process seemed so smooth. Charlie was very responsive, always prompt to answer any of my questions and concerns and at the end he managed to negotiate a very good daily rate for me. His services are definitely recommended and it's safe to say that going forward he will be my first point of contact when looking for new positions."
Senior Scala Contractor, OVO Energy
“I have been following the work of Signify from the beginning. Really like the guys and their attitude towards my favorite language: Scala :) When I reached out to Ryan I had a simple but difficult task for him. The whole interview process needs to be as fast as possible and he really delivered. After showing me a couple of options in a week I had an offer on my table. Cannot get faster than that! Thanks Ryan!"
Scala Team Lead, Fintech Company
“I would like to strongly recommend cooperation with Carl as a recruitment consultant. He helped me a lot with finding a new position which fits best my skills and planned career path.

Software Developer, Software Company

Software Engineer, Data Analytics Company
“When I went into the process of changing jobs I was expecting a long thorny road ahead. The reality was unexpected. I even dare to say pleasant. In span of a few weeks I was signing a new contract with a company I can believe in. I can't even imagine making it so far without Daniel's help, and especially his guidance. That's probably the biggest discovery on this journey. Who would have thought that recruitment companies can have a human face, and be proud of it! There was no moment, in the process, that I felt lost or overwhelmed. Daniel is amazingly skilled professional, but under that he's a all human."
Senior Software Engineer, Fintech Company
“There’s not a lot I can say about the hundreds of recruiters I’ve had the ‘joy’ of dealing with. If, like me, you find yourself sick of the silly games and lies from your everyday recruiters and you just want to get the job done (and have a laugh along the way rather than wanting to commit harakiri) Signify are the people you want! After over 9 years of contracting, I finally decided to go permanent. Working with Signify and particularly, Alex, has been nothing short of the most relaxing, friendly and professional experience I’ve had. Lets not forget the most important thing - at the beginning of our first conversation, I was asked what it was I wanted in my next role, and that is exactly what I got, as well as a few of the nice-to-have’s. They listen, and deliver."
Senior Web Developer, Education Platform Company
“I was trying to find a job for quite sometime, but there was no success. Rachael, from Signify, contacted me and helped me with this. After discussing roles I was looking for, she was really fast to find opportunities for me. Always conveyed concerns and questions immediately and followed up with proper feedback from companies, which as an individual I was not able to do."
Scala Developer, Fintech Company
“The moment Charlie reached me from Signify, I have a new friend who was very understanding, supportive, and responsive. He changed the way I thought how tech recruitment should be. Thanks to him, I earned my life-changing position through a process that was enjoyable, exciting, and rewarding."
Scala Software Engineer, Zalando
“For a very long time Jack Clement has been building a very positive relationship and keeping in touch, even though the market was pretty much unstable due to doubts involving Brexit and the elections. When a consistent opportunity finally arrived, we quickly found an agreement mutually beneficial for both parties. Also Rachael provided superb assistance so that I could perform well in the interviews."
Contract Senior Scala Engineer, Fintech Company
“I found working with Charlie and Signify to be a pleasure. Charlie asked questions to gauge both my interest and suitability for roles. Charlie always made time to take my calls or answer questions and worked around my schedule.

“As a software engineer, you will constantly get emails from recruiters with all sort of opportunities. The problem is that most of the time they disregard the candidate's profile. Working with Glenn was different. He took some time to understand my profile, my restrictions and then managed to find only relevant positions, never wasting my time, or the companies. He was engaged with the whole process and I could feel his support during the delicate phase of negotiations. Thanks to that, we've found my current job. Assertiveness is a quality that any recruiter should have, and that is the word that I would use to define a professional like Glenn.”

“Alexandra was professional and friendly from the start, and understood what I wanted from my job search - I wasn't bombarded with irrelevant opportunities! She was always quick to answer my queries and to give me updates regarding my applications, and was able to schedule interviews amongst my other (external) interview commitments without a problem. And she even managed to get me an offer higher than my asking price! I would be more than happy to recommend Signify to colleagues looking for a new opportunity. ”

"Daniel at Signify was great to work with whilst I was looking to make a personal and professional move abroad to Dubai. In particular he was far better than the other recruitment consultants I dealt with who were even based in the country I was moving to. Daniel was extremely quick to respond throughout the process and either had the information to hand or would find out as quickly as possible. I liked that he actually listened and took the time and care to remember details of our conversations and my background. He was great at keeping me up to date and has since shown an excellent level of aftercare getting in touch to see how I'm finding my new job and personal life. I would happily recommend Daniel and Signify to others."
