  • “I’ve been working with Technology Navigators for a decade because they save me time and money by providing me with the best candidates in the shortest amount of time. After working with Technology Navigators for ten years, I asked them and sixteen other agencies from Austin and around the country to help us recruit five Java stars. We hired three from Technology Navigators.”

    - Software Development Manager in Austin, TX
  • “During my job search I worked with four recruiters and [Technology Navigators was] by far the most professional, friendly, and hard-working of them all. My recruiter had a great sense of humor that really put me at ease, and I got some great advice on interviewing. I enjoyed our face-to-face meeting; it really showed their interest in making the entire process go as smoothly as possible.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “I first started working with Technology Navigators several years ago. Back then I did not have many hiring needs. However, Technology Navigators stayed in touch on a regular basis. When I moved to another company with a large number of open positions, I immediately called them. They were able to quickly find outstanding technical applicants to fill our positions. I have continued my relationship with Technology Navigators, and it is a great feeling to know that I can always count on them to provide highly qualified people anytime, and many times with very short notice.”

I plan to continue working with Technology Navigators in the future, whether it is to find another gig in Austin or elsewhere.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “Thanks for keeping me updated on the progress of the interview process. That means more to your candidates than you realize and engenders loyalty and credibility. It’s professional, and already you stand head and shoulders above 99% of the recruiters with whom I speak.”

    - Software Developer in Austin, TX
  • “Technology Navigators has been a great partner to help us identify and hire great Software Engineers.  Not only do they find great technical talent but they understand our company culture and work hard to find candidates that will enjoy and thrive within our environment. They have always been very responsive to our needs and helped us work through any concerns with the candidates. Looking forward to many more years of hiring with Technology Navigators!”

I particularly appreciate my Recruiting Consultant, who was very helpful in every possible way starting from setting up the interview, making sure I was there on time for onsite interviews, following up after interview, getting feedback etc. He worked with me until I got the offer. I will definitely let Technology Navigators know if my friends are looking for job.”

    - Software QA Engineer in Austin, TX
