Our Approach for Clients

Technical Recruiting the 180 Engineering Way

All too often, the talent acquisition process is an adversarial one plagued by a lack of commitment from recruiting firms and poor information exchange between hiring organizations and candidates. These shortcomings make the hiring process more stressful than needed for candidates, inefficient and sometimes ineffective for hiring organizations.

This is not the way 180 Engineering and our clients approach the recruiting process. The reality is, engineering and IT talent acquisition are challenging enough given the tightness in the labor market and the challenging specialization required for many roles.

180 Engineering stands behind our core values of integrity, ownership, intelligence, resilience, and scrappiness to guide both our clients and our candidates through the process of finding one another.

A 180 Engineering account manager has a thorough conversation with the hiring manager or HR partner digging in well past the bullets of a job description.

“The folks at 180 are very responsive, professional and take the time to truly understand what I need.”

– Corporate Recruiter, Fortune 15 Consumer Products Firm

We outline our process and set clear expectations for the hiring organization.

“Responsive and easy to work with all members of the 180 team.”

– VP, Fortune 50 Company

The first batch of candidates serves as a report card of how well we listened during the intake process. We work hard to make sure this report is a strong one.

“The team has done a great job finding qualified candidates that match our technical and cultural needs here in the San Francisco Bay Area. 180 Engineering has produced top candidates for us and is the number one company I go to when needing outside talent acquisition help.”

– Human Resources, Technology Company

Prior to interviews we prep the hiring organization by sharing the candidates’ backgrounds and, very importantly, sharing what’s important to the candidates based on our extensive conversations with them.

“Great Communications! Found exactly (even better) what we needed. Great people to work with.”
