Why Damia is not just another recruitment agency?

We are serious in our mission to make tech recruitment more personal and humane. Want to know why?

I have been in the recruitment agency world for 2 years and, alongside my two previous companies, I have been exposed to our competitors. Therefore, I always tried to understand what makes each agency unique. The biggest difference is clearly in how you see people and treat them.

We operate in an highly competitive market, because there is no market behavior such as the tech one:

  • Active candidates are a Utopia”;
  • Presenting the most interesting opportunity is the biggest challenge, as every day there are new and equally interesting opportunities;
  • Tech people dislike recruiters more than anything in this world.

Obviously, Damia needs to stand out in the middle of this mad world. How?

1. We constantly look to reinvent the wheel!

One of our core values is to level up by creating higher standards. It is only possible if we constantly refresh our algorithms especially when they but don’t work in some contexts. I know fully well that I can’t expect a tech person to waste an entire hour talking about their professional experiences, when they quite possibly done it 3 times already today! Instead, I have to find alternative ways to get the relevant information from them, preferably in less than half an hour because that helps them and is something they will appreciate.

2. We are who we want to be, without scripts.

When I joined Damia, I must confess I was a little bit worried if I would fit in with the company language. It was a surprise when I realized I didn’t need to fit into anything because from day one, I was told the following: do it your way.

3. We have each other’s back!

Teamwork makes the dream work and when you join Damia you understand what it really means.

We love what we do and we believe we can change the world of recruitment, one person at a time.
