How We Find Top-Talent:

Information and Insights

We begin the process by meeting you at your office so we can understand your culture, values, technology, people and processes. It's our goal to get to know your company as well as you do so we're armed with every piece of information needed to attract and attain the top candidates on the market.

Screening and Interviews

We qualify via phone and in-person to ensure we really understand the candidate's motivations, goals and future plans and only send if they match your companies! We screen for fit, aptitude and attitude by asking technical and personality focused questions, actively listening and questioning them on every answer they give.

Testing and Evaluation

We test candidates using an external software called Codility, which tests programming, cloud, data and DevOps. We also screen open-source code contributions, portfolio websites and applications like StackOverflow. We do the leg work upfront so you know you're only seeing top-tier, qualified Engineers.

Finally, Due Diligence

We get to know our candidates on a professional level, but also on a personal level to build real trust. We also ensure we complete due diligence processes so you can be confident in the candidate you're hiring. This includes reference checks, in-depth interviews, transcript review, or anything else you request.

We help employers solve real hiring challenges

Sage Recruiting has a very keen sense of the niche skills we look for. They know our company like the back of their hand, plus they are conscientious and easy to work with. We are pleased with every hire we made from Sage!

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!).
