Jason Pretorius

I believe I became a Tech Recruiter because my code is terrible. For over 20 years, I have recruited developers on 3 continents & in 6 cities. I like to believe I know what I am doing!

My primary area of expertise is software development; I am well versed in modern infrastructure as well as Cloud architecture. More importantly, I understand the difference between a weekend hobbyist and a professional software engineer.

I don’t believe in sales but rather choose to focus on service. I see myself as an extension of your business’ brand in my dealings with possible candidates; I see myself as a trusted advisor to developers & someone who wields influence for people rather than wielding it over people.
