This is what people say about working with Rob ...
“Rob Reeves is probably the best recruiter I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Throughout the process, it felt good to know that he always had my best interests in mind, and that I could trust him to represent me in an ethical manner. Rob is knowledgeable and thorough, and he managed some delicate negotiations with aplomb. He is extremely professional, yet friendly. And he seems like a really good guy, which makes his misguided football loyalties (UW Huskies and Seattle Seahawks) all the more disappointing.”

Since taking my new position as VP of Engineer, Rob has been helping me to build the team too. He fully understands our needs; then selectively introduces only the best candidates. It saves considerable time in the process. We definitely will keep working with Redfish Technology to scale our organization.”

“Rob Reeves is a great person and a positive influence. He coached me along the process to the obvious fruit of our labor. Though he represented BullionVault he never lost sight that he was dealing with a person with real concerns. His honesty and professionalism are an asset for both sides of the job search spectrum.”

"Once a technology resume goes public, many job inquiries come through. I would say only about 30% of those calls are worth a follow-up. When I first spoke with Rob Reeves at Redfish, I expected an impersonal 5 minute conversation. Instead, Rob was very thorough and asked all the right questions. Rob understands the specifics of what his clients are looking for and was able to quickly match my skill-set with a fantastic opportunity. I am extremely grateful for Rob's diligence; he placed me with a company that fit the culture, technology, and goals I was looking for. Thanks!"

I recommend Rob and Redfish highly!”
