2 min

As part of our ongoing growth plans, we’re excited to announce that our new Boston, Massachusetts office is now open for business!  

In the city dubbed to become the AI capital of the world the team will be working closely with candidates to bring them the most relevant, challenging and innovative career opportunities within Artificial Intelligence and Backend Engineering. 

The new office is being led by one of Understanding Recruitment’s most successful consultants, Matthew Ferdenzi, who successfully developed his team of six consultants specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning recruitment in the UK. Matt will now be focusing on growing the Boston office over the next few years while our UK team is now in the capable hands of Hannah Beach.

Understanding Recruitment Inc. Chief Operating Officer Matthew Ferdenzi said Moving to the U.S. has always been one of my personal goals and Understanding Recruitment have given me the platform to go to Boston and set up my own office and take the bull by the horns really. It’s a massive opportunity and I’m hugely proud to be taking our business statesideWe think that Boston is a global hub with a flourishing tech market and a lot of potential and I’m looking forward to speaking to new candidates and expanding our client base over the coming years.

Ideally located between Boston’s historic North End and ever-evolving West End, we’ve opted to make the WeWork 200 Portland Coworking space our new Boston address. As well as covering Boston and the surrounding cities, we recently expanded into the Berlin tech market specializing in Java technology recruitment. With exciting plans for continued growth across new geographical territories, we’re also aiming to boost our worldwide team from 50 employees to 100 by 2024.

Our Founding Director Chris Jackson concluded We’re thrilled with the success we’ve had in Boston so far and with Massachusetts recruiting more Artificial Intelligence jobs per capita than all other U.S. states except Washington, I look forward to seeing the business go from strength to strength. Opening up in Boston was a very strategic decision that we took because we truly believe that the Boston tech market is strong and is evolving from its biotech roots towards Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies.
