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.

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!).
