TEKsystems LA  ||  TEKsystems Orange County

I’ve worked with a number of recruiting agencies over the years. Most of them use “fire and forget” placement. But, TEKsystems makes a genuine effort to be interested in me as a person. Even if they did not place me, they still check in over a lunch or coffee. Thus far I have not met an agency that comes close to their care, concern and commitment. On top of that, they are great supporters of the Agile community. 

Version One

Contact: Mark Des Biens || Email: [email protected]

Version One has consistently come to the support of events, shared their knowledge and provided insight into managing SAFe and DevOps implementations. I have never seen them use a lecture opportunity to “push” their products and services. Their focus on developing and supporting the community, even if there is little to be gained, is a great example of corporate Servant Leadership.
