Technology Associate, Financial Services

Tristan is exceptional. Through the entire recruitment process, he was professional, hard-working, and conscientious. He was honest about what to expect at every stage of my search. He was tactful yet clear in delivering feedback from my interviews. He was dedicated to finding a role that was a good fit, both for both my myself and for my company. I feel fortunate to have worked with Tristan. Those who want to conduct their search with professionalism, and a certain amount of grace should seek him out. He’s proven to be someone who, even under exceptional conditions, does excellent work.

Technology Associate, Financial Services

Job hunting is a daunting process, but it was made easy by Tristan's professionalism and experience in the market. With his assistant, I landed a job in JPAM as a front office developer well within 1 month. The process was well paced and did not feel rushing at all. At the time, I was approached by many agents and recruiters, but after a while Tristan easily stood out, not only because of his integrity and the trust that he put me, but also because of all the advices and mentality support he gave me during the process. If you are looking for a new job, a career advice or insight to the technology job market, I highly recommend Tristan as the go to person.

Vice President / Software Engineer, Financial Services

With the greatest pleasure I can recommend Tristan as the recruiter of choice. Tristan helped and assisted me with a very tough and long-lasting recruitment process and negotiations for one of my positions. The recruitment process was very demanding, extremely thorough, and detailed. At every stage of the recruitment Tristan was very helpful and available with counsel and advice. Interview loops, discussions, getting more information about the company, employment conditions and contract, and even after that, making sure I had all the information to file all the required documentation for background checks. Tristan made sure I understand all the details, implications, conditions. 

He was very helpful with any extra questions, requests, or additional meetings I asked for. Most importantly, I really feel Tristan represented my interest very well at all stages. It's been 3,5 months after I had started my new employment and every single day I am very happy and thankful for all  the information and support I received from Tristan. All was fair, open and honest. If I were to look for a new position, Tristan would be my first choice to talk to. Thank you for all your time and help!
