What we do
A real partner, not just another body shop
Crazy isn’t it? An agency that actually understands human intelligence capital for what it is… human. People aren’t just another commodity or product to be pushed, but the very foundation that can make or break the clients we’ve partnered with.

- Blockchain Development: Smart Contracts, Solidity, Truffle, Ethereum
- Trading Systems, Low Latency, Algo, Quant
- Machine Learning, Ai, Big Data, Fast Data
- Systems Engineering & Security, DevOps, Cloud Administration
- Project Management
- Quality Assurance
- Product Management
- User Experience
- UX Architects
- UX Engineers
Because we only service these areas, we maintain a high level of expertise in evolving technologies and requirements.
What People Are Saying About Us
Julie Gross, Resource Director at Huge
Over the past 5 years, Marcelo has been supporting my resourcing needs at 3 different companies. Marcelo and his team have successfully placed many candidates with me because he truly understands the digital agency world. Needs can change at a moment’s notice and he has been great at filling our most challenging roles. When feedback is provided, Marcelo applies it, refining his team’s search and improving results. Unlike most recruiting agencies, Marcelo and his team focuses their time on fostering relationships with clients and candidates. He understands it is the most crucial aspect of doing business. While he is results driven, he is also easy to work with and makes the process enjoyable. I would highly recommend his service to anyone in need of tech recruiting.
Todd Ricker, Senior Manager at SunGard Global Services
I’ve worked with Marcelo on both sides of the staffing pipeline. In both scenarios I found him to be intelligent, patient and a straight shooter, traits that are not necessarily common in the technology staffing world.
I was placed at Conde Nast years ago by Marcelo. At Conde Nast and at NYSE Euronext I worked closely with Marcelo to fill vacancies. Marcelo always presented qualified and experienced candidates. I took on many of his candidates as consultants and full time employees with an extremely high success rate. The quality of his candidates and his easy-going personality are why I keep using Marcelo. I recommend him highly.
Alec Simonson, Director of Web Operations at HarperCollins Publishers
Marcello has been absolutely stellar at finding me the perfect candidates for my open positions. He has maintained personal oversight of the entire process, and hasn’t just “stocked bodies”. When I have opted to pass on a candidate, Marcello has taken the time to understand why, and subsequent interviews have reflected this understanding. One particular success of note: I had a position to fill on the other side of the country. The few resumes coming in from HR were dreadful. Marcello had me on the phone with a candidate in short time; and she seemed incredible. Flew out to meet her, and she WAS incredible. We hired her. One position, one resume, one cross-country flight, and we were all set. Take the time to work with Marcello – show him what your candidate will be doing, explain the environment and the culture; you’ll find it’s time very well spent. He’s got the unique talent!
Patrice Diaz-Migoyo, Senior Vice President – Technology at RFI Studios
I have been a client of Marcelo’s for 6 years while I was at various companies. He has always provided me with the highest quality candidates and excellent service. He maintains one of the largest network of candidates I know of, in all experience levels, from junior programmers to exeuctives. I highly recommend him as a staffing resource for propsective employers.
