Screening and Interviews

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

Testing and Evaluation

We test candidates upon request and always put them through a technical screen. We are technical enough to ask complex questions and ensure that we're only sending you the best and brightest available.

Due Diligence

We do formal and informal screening, testing, formal and informal references, checking transcripts upon request and anything else agreed upon to ensure the candidate is who they say they are.

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.

Vlad A Ionescu, Founder at ShiftLeft

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.

Alex Corotchi, VP Technology, Q4 Web Systems

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!).

Personally, I think …

Welcome to the Future

When I grow up…. In the future…. One day…. To 80’s kids & the generations prior to us, 2020 sounded like a faraway utopian land. To me, it was a place where the Jetson’s lived and we would be travelling in flying cars with robots as our ‘hired help’. We grew up without seatbelts or helmets. We sat at local …
