“I have worked with Objective Paradigm for a 10 year stretch on both the candidate and client-side. OP placed me at Getco/KCG when I needed to relocate back to the midwest. More recently, as COO of Tagomi (start-up digital asset agency broker), we partnered up with OP to address our hiring needs in the digital assets space. They came through with a versatile software development hire, who could work across the entire stack.”

– Kevin Johnson, COO – Tagomi

“In 2018, Seed CX needed to scale out its technology and operations platform to keep pace with competition and meet business goals. Objective Paradigm stood out as the leading agency recruiting firm, successfully placing our CTO, Lead Full Stack Engineer, Head of Operations, and 6 other key hires within a year’s time frame. Objective Paradigm delivered high-quality candidates, demonstrated great candidate communications, and most importantly they were candid/transparent about every aspect of their business. We highly recommend them. They felt more like an extension of our business. Their integration was seamless.”

– Edward Woodford, Co-Founder – Seed CX Ltd.
