Technology jobs in Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, Java , Microsoft technologies and all things Linux.
Background and experience :
I have extensive recruitment experience across Finance, IT and Digital Media, joining Eligo in April 2012 to lead a team of highly talented recruitment consultants specialising in Perl, Python, Ruby, PHP, Java , Microsoft technologies and all things Linux.
I recruit for all levels within Open Source, having placed 1st Line support positions right up to CTO, as well as developers across the board from Junior Developer to Senior Developer, both Web-based and more system based. Although I am an all-round recruiter I do specialise in and have particular success in working with clients to place those hard to fill roles.
As a leading Open Source Recruitment Specialist with a focus on Perl, I have access to candidates and clients across the globe. This has given me the opportunity to attend multiple sector meetups. I’m regularly invited to speak at leading Industry Events as an Open Source Recruitment expert and have spoken at London Perl Workshop, YAPC:EU, Dynamic Language Conference, and FLOSSUK to name a few. This experience allows me to understand in real depth both client and candidate expectations and desires, forming an excellent relationship with both parties.
Interesting fact about me :
I previously worked with the FA as a disability officer
