Our biggest secret sauce is our team!
* Six heads are better than one! We believe the more heads we have working to solve your staffing problems, the better the solutions. Each role and each candidate have at least 3 people working on them together, so that nobody falls through the cracks, all roles get full coverage, and no potential perfect match is missed.
* Hate recruiters? So do we. While so many recruiters have more of a sales-y approach, ours is consultative and service minded. We’re not about pushing you into a certain role, but about working with you to help you find your perfect opportunity, whether the right time is now or over a year from now – and whether it is through us or not.
* Experience matters! Our Founder has 9 years of corporate recruiting experience, 5+ years running this agency, and a tech background. Our Tech Recruiters are incentivized by the quality of work they’re doing, not just the end result.
Tatiana Becker, Founder
I built NIAH as I saw a need for a high-output recruiting firm that hit the bullseye on the target, rather than throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks, as many firms do. This idea was built from two things I saw in my time at Microsoft, AppNexus, and Etsy:
1. Internally, we were dealing with an extremely high volume of applicants. In order to get through all of them, I had to become extremely efficient at triaging, screening, and deciding which candidates to send onto the teams.
2. External recruiters often took more of my time than they saved, by sending many candidates that did not fit the criteria we set.
Over the past 5 years, I’ve dedicated myself to building and refining a system that leverages our *entire team* to find the right candidates for roles, and the right roles for candidates. I take a look at every single candidate with whom we work, leveraging my 13 years of recruiting experience to match them with a select few of our 500+ roles.
We believe in a high-touch, white-glove approach.
