Recruiting Success Stories

Customer Success Engineer – Gamification

 

Bunchball’s VP of Client Services tapped Redfish Technology when the team recently decided to hire a Customer Success Engineer. As the industry leader in gamification, Bunchball works with some of the largest consumer and B2B companies in the world. Jon Piggins, Tech Recruiter at Redfish, analyzed the company’s requirements and corporate culture and embarked on a search strategy. Jon targeted professionals with a highly technically mind paired with excellent communication skills who had a track record of working well with customers to get to the core needs and solve issues.

 

“Jon was a real pleasure to work with: He sought me out via LinkedIn for a specific opening, but was genuinely concerned that the opportunity was the right fit for me, and not just the other way around. He was able to understand and convey my unique combination of technical and client-facing skills, while being cognizant of the requirements I had for a new position. Jon is prompt, professional, and personable, and at the end of the day, he helped me land a new gig that was an improvement in every possible way from my previous position. Working with both Jon and Redfish was a pleasure, and I would certainly work with them again in the future.” – Arun Wright
