Brittany Tartarilla

Technical Recruiter

Brittany’s passion and energy for recruiting is obvious. Perhaps it has something to do with the origin of her career. She was able to parlay her job as a ski instructor into becoming a recruiter for the ski resort.

Courtney Ogren

Courtney keeps us all in line, saves us when we’re in need, provides comic relief, and most importantly, keeps the engine of our business running like a well-oiled machine. Maybe her title should be “Mom.” Read more…

Marketing Director

Starting her day with a two-hour bike commute, Shenna somehow comes into work full of energy and a joyful approach to everything that comes her way.

Talia Worth

Operations Assistant

Talia wins the award for the most projects in the works at once, and she rocks them all. Not surprising, given that she mastered the art of walking backward without having to peek as a tour guide in college.

Tom Troy

Technical Recruiter and New Client Partnerships

Don’t let his disarmingly friendly and mild-mannered ways fool you. After hitting 86 mph on skis, juggling tech recruiting and business development is a cinch.
