Recruiters have a pretty bad reputation in the Open Source community. But Eligo consultants are a shining example of what a recruiter should be.
Eligo is an exclusive partner of CV-Library and helps to support us with our technical recruitment, particularly with the harder to fill, senior roles. Rick has really taken the time to get to understand our team and the needs of the business, and as a result, is able to provide us with truly exceptional candidates. We've seen really positive results using Eligo and would definitely recommend it's services to others.
Not only has Eligo helped us to successfully build our Perl team, but they have been a constant support to me in my role. They are always there with advice on our market and support me in what I'm trying to achieve. We've now been to events with Rick which has increased our brand within the market.
What makes Eligo different is the amount of time they invest in getting to grips with my company's requirements - not only in terms of the technologies but also the cultural requirement.
The Eligo technology team are a breath of fresh air. It's refreshing to work with agents who understand my craft, and who take the time to understand me as a person and what it is I am looking for. If you are working with Open Source technologies and you aren't part of the Eligo family, then you should be.
It's our job to keep abreast of everything within your market. We regularly put together useful resources for you and your team based on this. If there's a report or resource you'd like but don't see, let us know!
