    Luke is the best recruiter we have worked with—by far. He is kind, professional, and smart. We hire for super specific and often highly technical role, yet Luke always asks the right questions and eventually finds stellar candidates. We continue to work with Luke as we scale our business and would highly recommend him for hiring in the AI/ML/DL fields.

    Mat is the best recruiter we have worked with at PolyAI. He has helped hire five of our key machine learning people, in roles ranging from product management to ML research.

    Matt has worked with me for two years in finding great engineers for my team, especially machine learning and software engineers. Right in the beginning he took the time to understand us as a company and the kinds of people we are looking for. He has stayed tuned to our evolving needs and listened carefully to our feedback on candidates. The result: a substantial number of my current team members were introduced by Matt. I warmly recommend Matt as a recruitment partner in building great engineering teams.

    I had the pleasure of working with Molly for my new job. She is professional, friendly, and always helpful. Furthermore, she was able to match my skillset with the job required. Quite often you get people that just look at some keywords on your CV, but that is not the case with Molly. She has a holistic understanding of the requirements of both the employer and the employee. Finally, even after the deal was sealed she followed up, which gave the process a personal touch that was appreciated.

    Molly is a great recruiter. She patiently tries to understand the client's requirements and suggests jobs accordingly. Not only that, she will try to get as much information as possible from the employer to help the interviewee get a better idea of what to expect in an interview. I had a great time working with her. You can rely on her to always reach out with important details. I would blindly recommend her to anyone who is currently in the job market. I would definitely love to work with her again in the future. She is the best recruiter, I have worked with so far.

    Markus brought to me the more than ideal role I was looking for. The stuff of dreams. Working with him was very easy. Respect, full transparency, competency & timeliness ( knowing when to accelerate and when to dial it down) are all the ways Markus clearly differentiates himself. I am lucky to have gotten his call. He brings the best for the best! I wish Markus every success and joy in building game-changing teams.

  • Paolo Mantovani

    Matthew Ferdenzi is an example of how recruiting should be. Finding great matches between people and open positions is very challenging and I believe that Matthew really excels at this. In my case, for instance, Matthew connected me with an amazing team for a perfect role that not even I would have considered a match based on the job posting. Beyond the talent for finding the right opportunities for the right candidates, Matthew is an honest, experienced, and resourceful recruiter, who is always ready to help candidates navigate their options while making important life-changing decisions. These qualities are even harder to find and so I cannot be more supportive of Matthew and his business. In summary, I truly believe that Matthew has the ability to build extraordinary teams and help both candidates and companies make the right decisions.

    Matthew is an excellent recruiter who helped me find the perfect role. He was a delight to work with during a stressful time because he's a cheerful guy who clearly enjoys his work. Mat really puts his listening skills to work - cutting through the noise of "keyword search matches" and focusing on pitching opportunities that really matched my interests. I also really appreciated that he stayed in contact (even after I was placed). He's genuinely interested in making sure you're comfortable with the process and happy with the results.

    Mat has an excellent grasp of the technical and the cultural aspects of ML/AI roles and startups that goes far beyond reading position descriptions and resumes, and he actively listens for additional insight at each opportunity. As a candidate I appreciated that Mat never wasted my time and really worked at finding alignment between people, roles, and organizations; I learned something in each interaction with him, conversations were lively and informative. He is easily one of the most capable recruiters I know, and a nice human being as well!

    Mat is a rare find among recruiters. In fact he could be better described as an agent who acts in your best interest. He guides you and keeps you updated throughout the entire hiring process, from searching for openings to negotiating offers. He has an innate sense of what roles would be a good match for you, which saves you a lot of time and stress. He also understands the technologies and the cultures of the companies he works with, so he can be your biggest resource during interview prep. Moreover, Mat’s positive and energetic personality makes him an absolute pleasure to work with.
