"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."

"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"

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

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 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."

“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. Since I accepted the contract, Charlie has continued to be as equally professional and helpful as when he first spent the time and effort in recruiting me."

He goes an extra mile trying to understand what the person looks for in their next challenge and has an uncanny ability to sense where the candidate will be a good fit. As I understand, It's essential to have very clear and transparent communication during every step of the recruitment process, and Carl is just awesome at that. He builds a sound relationship with people he works with and works relentlessly to find them their dream job. He helped me a lot in the recruitment process and I have no hesitation in recommending him to those who are looking for their next step in their career. Thank you Carl”

I recommend you all having him by your side when you apply for a job. Thanks and keep up with the good work Carl!”
Dev Lead, Software House
“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.”
Senior Scala Engineer, Uswitch
“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. ”
Senior Scala Engineer, Trimble
“I would like to thank Carl Woodbridge for his help and engagement in my recruitment process. Without any doubts I can say that the process was excellent from very beginning till the final contract was signed.

It was one of my best experiences of cooperation with a recruitment consultant in the last 20 years and I would certainly work with him again. ”

He proved to be kind and helpful at all stages, including the initial presentation of the positon on offer, setting up the interview, contract negotiations and final documents signing. He tried to be insightful and understand my situation. As a result, he acted very proactively during the negotiations phase, which I felt like he played at my side and supported me through the whole process.

She gave the recruitment process a personal touch, and helped me in achieving just what I looked for on both sides of the deal. ”
Head of Technology, Tech Start up Company

"Jack placed me as a contractor in a Senior developer role for a cutting edge utility company. He made the whole recruitment process very effortless. He was always available for catch-up chats and would always provide timely updates. The timesheet and payroll system is probably the easiest I’ve used with any agency. I would have no hesitation in working with Signify Technology again"
Senior Developer, OVO Energy
"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."

Carl was helpful in guiding me through the assessment and subsequent interview and I have now taken up a position with the firm."
NLP/Machine Learning Engineer, Legal Tech Start up
"Without any exaggeration, working with Daniel from Signify has been my best experience with any recruitment consultant to date.

Full Stack Developer, Education Platform Company
"Glenn Holman from Signify was a great help getting me through the interview process with my current company. Honestly I wasn’t as confident as Glenn was in me for this Senior Web Developer position. I am glad Glenn saw the potential in me after looking at my CV and we went ahead with the application. All 3 interview rounds were arranged within a week and I had the result on the 5th day. Thanks to Glenn I am now a Senior Web Developer at a great company. The best part was Glenn even followed up with me to see how I was settling in and how I was finding work after I started."

Ryan was very good at listening at my aspirations and matching those to the company's values. He was very organised in setting up interviews and meetings with the development team at the prospective company. He also kept in touch on a regular basis to update me on the overall process and listen to my feedback.

Head of Product and Engineering, Product Company
“Dealing with Signify was a refreshing experience compared with the usual melee that is tech recruitment. We only got high quality candidates through and Ryan was careful to never be pushy with us, whilst remaining on-hand to help where we needed it. Dealing with recruiters who knew the business inside and out and could speak our language was really a breath of fresh air. I'd definitely get in touch with Ryan and Signify again next time we need to hire.”
CTO of Technology start up
"When Ryan contacted me, I was really eager to start a new contract soon having been out of work for some time already.

I would more than happy to work with Ryan and Signify in the future."
Contract Scala Engineer at Technology start up
“I've had a great relationship working with Signify Technology. I met them when I applied for a contract role with a company in London which changed their mind about hiring a contractor due to financial reasons. Signify Technology was very professional in handling the matter and explaining the situation to me. After a few weeks, the same agent rang me up again with a new contract and it was a success. I'm now working with a global client and very satisfied. I would definitely recommend their services to anyone who wants results!”
