“I can’t thank Redfish Technology enough! This job is everything I was looking for. I finally feel like I’m in the right place. Working with Mike, and sometimes Noah, was great. I really felt like they cared about matching me with a company that fit with my goals and working style. Instead of a new job, it feels like I’ve come home and gained a new family. I highly recommend Redfish if you want to find where you belong.” – Tim Kissane
