66 Hires since 2016
The DevBuddies have been helping Zattoo to successfully grow our tech team for 3 years, in which we have hired around 25% of our tech talent with them. We see Florian and Ferenc more like an extended part of our people team and not as external recruiters.
They have a close connection to our tech leads and spent a lot of time getting to know our company culture, our technical set-up and our hiring challenges. This makes working with them not just fun, but also very efficient. In a market where hiring top-notch tech talents is a challenge, we are a very picky customer with a strong focus on the right cultural fit. And still, the DevBuddies manage to find great talent for us from all over the world, which helps Zattoo grow in size, but also diversity.
Thank you so much for the great support! Let's keep it up in the coming years!
In my capacity as a Venture Developer for Atlantic Labs I found devBuddies the most helpful recruiter to work with - Tech or otherwise. They are outstanding in their effort to get to know both candidates and employers in order to make the best recommendations for cultural fit, and they are so helpful and a pleasure to work with. I am always happy to refer them to companies and hear about the very positive results of their cooperation.
devBuddies helped us to scale our Scala and React team at MONOQI. The quality of their network is great and they always suggest leads that fit both in terms of skills and personality. Florian is also very nice as a person and it is always a pleasure to work with him and his team. I highly recommend devBuddies for any IT recruitment needs.
devBuddies was a great help for us to find a skilled devOp that is as well a good cultural fit. For them the personal relationship is important and they take their time to find out what the company needs and screens candidates accordingly beforehand.

Florian started as a developer at the age of 18 and worked as a freelancer for over 12 years.
During a sabbatical in 2015, he started helping a founder friend to find developers for his team. He soon realized that recruitment needs a more human approach and insights about companies which recruiters usually don't provide to developers.
In 2017 he founded devBuddies.io together with his buddy Ferenc.
Florian's addiction is to connect and help people.
Ferenc has been growing tech teams globally since 2010 and has hired nearly 200 people.
He lived and worked in 4 countries both in-house and as a specialist external recruiter. He enjoys working with engineers, gaining products insights and curiously follows tech in his free time.
With an active network across continents he embraces diversity and interaction with different cultures.
A positive contribution to organisations and lives keeps him engaged in recruitment.
Anna has a degree in Computer Science and more than 6 years of working experience in tech recruitment.
During her career as a tech recruiter, she has been working with startups as well as bigger tech companies.
Her passion for tech and people allows her to pitch our startups like she would be part of the team herself.
With her attitude and mindset, she is as energetic and responsive as Berlin itself.
