Employers Advice: Every hire is critical to a company’s growth trajectory and success. Without a consistent pipeline of top talent to tap into, great ideas won’t translate to great companies. This has everything to do with the fact that a top performer (top 5-10%, say) has a significantly more profound impact on an organization. My client service focuses on identifying these top performers and assessing whether their core skill-set and personality traits fit with your needs.

Wake up in the Innovation District, have coffee at Voltage, a stop off at MassChallenge or TechStars to mentor a budding start-up on recruiting / hiring before I head to our offices on Route 128 to speak with those seeking new ways to disrupt the way we work and live all day long. This is why I love being a part of the Boston Tech ecosystem and recruiting in the space for WinterWyman. WW is the Largest Executive Recruiting Firm in New England and our NE Software practice has a combined 125 years of local software recruiting experience. I have deep relationships within the VC, start-ups, technology companies and communities, have been a perennial top ten recruiter with WW and I love working with candidates passionate about what they do. Plain and simple, my talent is finding software engineering talent!

"My experience working with Doug was exceptional! He was extremely helpful during my job search, and matched me up with several high-quality positions that were in sync with my skill set and objectives. I found Doug to be professional, knowledgeable, encouraging, and communicative throughout the entire process. I especially appreciated his low-key (i.e. non-pushy) demeanor, his knowledge of the current and past state of the tech industry, and his always helpful advice. I would highly recommend Doug to anyone in need of his services!"

The job search process can often be very impersonal and full of rejection, but Doug really made an effort to get to know me as a person.
