Quote Calvin

We are technical recruiters in Latin America

We are a community-driven and these are the values we stand for:
We are allies

Each team member, talent in our network, and client have specific needs. We listen carefully, provide the right tools to fulfill those needs, and make room for growth by supporting each other.

We are go-getters

We aspire to deliver high-quality work, and we're convinced experimentation is needed to improve continuously. We are more comfortable in getting caught failing than not trying at all.

We are human

We go the extra mile with the confidence that every process and connection would only be as effective with a human component. Empathy is key to building successful relationships.
