Test Engineering Recruiters and Executive Search

We are recruiting experts for test engineering

Your test engineering recruitment team

Test engineers play a vital part in most quality assurance teams as they test and report their findings throughout the entire development lifecycle to ensure customers get a high quality product. With many test engineers and test engineering managers spanning a multitude of specialties and industries, it can be a challenge finding a recruiting and executive search firm that can handle finding these engineers. 180 Engineering stands out from your typical recruitment agency as we have a long history placing test engineering professionals across a variety of industries.

Our clients expect a search firm that can screen for a variety of testing experience such as automated testing, manual testing, user acceptance testing (UAT), hardware testing, debugging, test case creation, test reporting, and many other key skills. Every candidate we work with must pass a thorough interview with a recruiter from our team to ensure every submission is worthy of consideration.

Case Study

The Challenge

A medical device company in the San Francisco Bay Area that specializes in audio and visual technology for the operating room was having trouble finding a V&V Engineer that had experience with automated testing and testing audio and visual components. The competitive Bay Area market for talent coupled with the specific technical requirements prompted the HR manager to find a recruiting firm that could handle such a search.

The Solution

180 Engineering held an intake meeting with the HR manager and engineering manager to gain an understanding of the challenges faced during their search as well as the skills needed to be successful in the role. Soon after, our team of award winning technical recruiters got to work sourcing and conducting technical interviews for the right V&V Engineer.

The Outcome

After numerous interviews, a recruiter from our team found a V&V Engineer who possessed the rare mix of A/V testing, verification and validation, and automated test experience needed for this role. The client was so impressed with our candidate that she was promoted to senior level position within her first year.

I had a wonderful experience working with 180 Engineering, specifically with Dana Straple. The position was a government job in the IT dept. Dana reached out to me to with the job description and mentioned that my experience would be a good fit. She got me an interview with the hiring managers and the decision makers. Each step of the way, she was in constant communication as to what was going on and what the decision makers were thinking. Due to the nature of some/most or at least this specific government position, the hiring process took about 6-8weeks. During that waiting time, Dana was in constant communication with me and ensured that I was going to get hired for the position but the approval process had several steps. Once I received the official offer, she walked me through that process and was still in constant communication even after the HR process, which was also a pleasant experience.I would recommend 180 Engineering since my experience with Dana was a positive one!
As a new graduate, I am very appreciative of 180 Engineering because they helped me land my first full-time position as an Application Engineer. The recruiter I worked with is TJ Gervino, and he reached out, informing me about a new opening that was quickly expanding. TJ helped me prepare for my interview, and I can honestly say that his suggestions with questions, emails, and mock interview topics made a world of difference compared to my previous experiences that I had alone. This was the calmest I've ever been in an actual interview, and I credit that a lot to TJ. Every step of the way, due to his connection with the company, he was able to give me their positive feedback. Going into each phase of the interviewing process, I felt better knowing I truly made a good impression. The entire process was really smooth and quick. We stayed in contact constantly, and I felt like I had someone truly in my corner pulling for me to succeed.
Best experience I've ever had with a recruiting firm! Adam was very knowledgeable and responsive. They helped me land a position that was exactly what I was looking for.
I had a great experience with 180 engineering team members and Chris Petkus during the whole process of interview scheduling and onboarding.
Working with 180 Engineering was a great experience from start to finish. My recruiter TJ was very knowledgeable and was able to find a great employer to match my skills and experience. The interview prep was solid and I got great insights to help me feel confident before going into my first interview. This organization is very holistic where they demonstrate they care for you as a whole person. After every interview the recruiters make sure the follow up and connect with you to debrief and provide any feedback. I would definitely recommend anyone looking to make a career move to consider partnering up with this organization.
My recruiter, Patrick Brigman, put my wants and needs in a job first. He connected me with a role that would be a good fit, then walked me through the entire process. He helped me not only with interview preparation but also with navigating the mental/emotional struggles that come with getting a new role, or in my case, my first role out of college. He was able to provide me information about the company, and he kept in contact with the company and gave me updates at each step of the way. Overall, this was a very pleasant experience and I felt like I had someone on my team the whole step of the way. I am very happy with the role I now have and am so glad I worked with Patrick at 180 Engineering.
Excellent experience from start to finish. Recruiters were very nice and helped me to prepare for my interviews. They did an excellent job keeping me updated on every step of the process. This is the best experience I've had with a recruiting company by far.
Julie from 180 engineering was very helpful throughout the process of the interview. She helped me for interview preparation and also helped in accommodating virtual and on site interviews according to my availability from the work. 180 engineering is genuine and honest recruitment agency.
My recruiter TJ spent more time helping me prepare for my interview than any other recruiter that I have worked with in the past. TJ and 180 Engineering really invested their time in my success. It is very much appreciated.
