LinuxRecruit

What Hunted Says

Linux Recruit are true specialists in their market, which means they have the same buy-in from clients as a larger brand, with all of the benefits of working for a smaller agile business. They run the biggest DevOps meetup in the world at over 5,000 attendees and their Trainees have billed over £200k in their first year. There's bags of autonomy, based out of a truly impressive office. This is an awesome culture which harbours success and above all, enjoyment in being successful.

We’re LinuxRecruit; a small-but-mighty recruitment powerhouse, specialising in Open Source and DevOps recruitment. We’re one of the biggest names in DevOps, and more often than not, if you operate in the DevOps space, you’ve heard of us.

COMMUNITY DRIVEN

Our real USP is how involved we are in the community. We host the largest DevOps meetup in the world, giving a platform to speakers from a huge range of different industries; from the CTO at Ticketmaster, to the tech-famous Kelsey Hightower - the meetups are a great way to meet some awesome people, keep abreast of industry developments...not to mention the free beer and pizza. We have over 5000 members and there’s regularly 250+ at each event, just think of the network you could grow! We also produce regular content into the community, such as a regular DevOps eBook, DevOps Journeys, and have an interactive blog area with various client contributions.

TRAINING AND SUPPORT

We ask you on day one to tell us your goals so that we can tailor learning, to suit your path. We invest heavily in training and development with a mixture of on the job, e-learning and classroom sessions to ensure all learning styles are catered for. We also run optional, bi-weekly lunchtime workshops and have industry expert visits. Each month you will always be given the time to sit down and review your progress to date & how we can help you get that little bit closer to achieving your goals. You will also have the chance to reflect on what you've achieved so far.

REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER JOINING US

- We are true partners to the tech community & have excellent relationships for anyone coming in to leverage off . - There are huge opportunities in our marketplace, and you'll join us with lots of jobs to work on right away. - Because we're small you will have the scope and support to grow into leading a team, or even starting out your own business unit. - We have a great commission structure, but what really sets us apart is the partnerships we have within the tech industry - giving our consultants huge opportunities to bill.

GIVING YOU THE AUTONOMY TO WORK IN YOUR OWN WAY

We are all different and have different success methods for being great recruiters, which is why we don't believe that tracking call times, candidate calls and how many clients you've called creates a positive environment. Instead we would rather focus on building meaningful relationships with clients & candidates in a way that works for you - Gone are the days of pointlessly hammering the phone to hit a target for the sake of it! We focus on results, whilst giving you the autonomy to do what you do best - Recruit.

Community is at the heart of the Open Source world - and at the heart of how we approach recruitment.

We don’t wear shiny suits. We make placements not deals. We are fiercely competitive.

I love working here because I am consistently rewarded for my efforts which means I can treat myself to things I love often. - Alice

SAYING WELL DONE

You'll be exceptionally well rewarded at LinuxRecruit. There is a lunch club for every consultant that hits their target in the month, where we go to a great London restaurant and let our hair down! There's also a quarterly holiday target for those on track with their targets. Last year the team went to Las Vegas to celebrate a great year and in June we've chartered a boat to sail around the Croatian islands. The fact we're small means that we can reward our consultants flexibly, and we regularly come up with other ways to reward their hard work, whether that's going go-karting, or getting some drinks into the office to toast a great week!

GENUINE SPECIALISTS

We know everyone in recruitment says they are specialists. But we take our word seriously. We see ourselves as part of the DevOps & Open Source industry, if you join us, you'll be able to become a real expert in your market through attending meet ups, collaborating with industry experts on blogs, vlogs & podcasts really cementing yourself as part of the community at a much deeper level than going through the bog-standard recruitment questioning.- That's definitely not something you can get at all other agencies.

WHAT WE LOOK FOR

We're looking for consultants who make Placements not do Deals, who run campaigns rather than spray and pray and whose recruitment strategy doesn't end when the phone is 'Smashed'. We're a committed group of true consultants, who enjoy what we do. We are looking for like-minded focused people who favour a long-term relationship, rather than hit and run business. We are pragmatic, to the point and as a collective, fiercely competitive. Our consultants understand the industry inside out, are pragmatic and don't beat around the bush. If you're bored of searching the job boards, sending endless streams of unanswered inmails and you want to work somewhere with a genuine USP and real brand identity, then we may be the place for you.
