Interview & Technical Screen

We qualify extensively to ensure we really understand the candidate's motivations, goals and future plans. We do a technical screen (we are coders!) and only send the top candidates in the market.

Testing and Evaluation

If you test candidates, we are able to evaluate the tests and only send passing candidates. We are coders so we can ask high-level technical questions along with intensive interview screening. This ensures we're only sending you the best and brightest!

Due Diligence

Along with our extensive screening, technical questions and testing, we also do formal and informal references along with any additional checks needed pertaining to the position.

We help employers solve real hiring challenges

No other recruiter was able to match the detail and understanding of the role as well as the high bar that we agreed on for candidates. We interviewed 30+ engineers through other recruiters, but only SAGE was able to find us an engineer.

Working with Sage for the last two years has been a pleasure. Ashley is a mind reader! If I had the budget to do so, I would hire every single person she sends my way. She has helped me build several teams over the years and I am always happy with the quality of candidate she sends to me.

Ashley and her team took time to understand our business, strategy and culture, exceeding our expectations. We've been BLOWN AWAY by the talent Sage has sent to us and, more importantly, after hiring, got EXACTLY what we needed (and more!).
