Lewis Adams-Dunstan's Testimonials
Lewis was my recruitment agent for three years, helping me find and recruit so many amazing engineers to my teams in Copenhagen. - He is an outstanding judge of talent and character! I will recommend Lewis any day, to both candidates and employers.
Lewis is by far one of the best recruiters I have worked with. His hands-on, no BS approach gives you prompt updates and excellent coaching. He spends the time to understand the what a candidate is looking for and goes above and beyond to ensure that any potential match is a great fit for candidates and employers.
Lewis contacted me though LinkedIn about a gig with a start up in Los Gatos. I’ll admit, living in San Mateo near Cal Train and not having to actually drive a car on my commute for years made me somewhat ambivalent about the position. So while I had concerns, Lewis was incredibly convincing; he got me excited about the company, their product and the job but more importantly, he got them excited about me. The process was incredibly smooth and Lewis was there every step of the way following up after my phone interviews and F2F making sure the lines of communication stayed open and things kept progressing. Lewis’s dedication went above and beyond; he kept in touch with me and the company even while vacationing in Mexico. The first few days of his holiday he was still shepherding my contract along, I’m sure to the great annoyance of his traveling companion. In the end it turned out great; I’m currently with an amazing team at import.io working on an exciting product. I have Lewis to thank for that. Without his attention to detail and perseverance, this opportunity would have never come together. For that I’m very thankful to Lewis and the Darwin team and I heartily recommend both.
Lewis helped me transition from an academic job to one in the private sector. He was a great help at every stage -- identifying great opportunities that matched my skill set, setting up channels of communication with potential employers, monitoring the interview process, and advocating on my behalf throughout. He was a great source of advice and encouragement, and was very proactive. He actively monitored the interview process, giving me a very helpful perspective informed by his experience of the practices of companies in this field. He checked in with me regularly and responded quickly when I had a question or concern. I am extremely happy that I worked with him and strongly recommend him.
Professional and dedicated recruiter. Good at following up and seems to understand our business and our needs. Have had several good recruitments thanks to him.
Lewis Adams-Dunstan - Director of Business Development and Host of 'Preparing the Un-prepared' - A Data-Driven Podcast is on the lookout for an experienced Hiring Manager who's happily employed in the USA and is looking to expand their team now or in the near future. The requirements: You must understand the technical and business reasons for your hiring needs before wanting me to engage in a search. The budget for hiring must be signed off. I'm not looking for window shoppers and nor are my candidates! You need to have realistic expectations of skill level and experience vs budget allocated for each of your roles. You must also understand and appreciate the value in both and Internal External Recruitment Partner. It's important that you have a well-structured process in place that will ensure success and you must provide constructive feedback to both your internal and external partners in a timely manner (AKA treat people's time in exactly the same way that you expect people to treat yours) Ideally, you'll be hiring within Data but if not, you must be open to making introductions to other people in the business who might need support with their technical growth. You value the candidate experience, so with that in mind, you'll be actively involved in the interview process preferably from the initial round (what I mean by this is, you're not the King or Queen and you don't expect the candidate that YOU'RE supposed to be hiring to meet you at the final stage and bow... You may laugh but this happens a lot!) You understand the market and how competitive it is so you don't waste peoples time with lowball offers. You take time to understand their worth and you offer them that when the time comes! Nice to haves: It would be nice if you were open to being flexible when an applicant ticks 99% of the boxes. It's prefered that you don't base your decision on the 1% and that you see potential in people that might be highly motivated when given the right chance! An interest in building a long term partnership and not just seeing recruitment as a transactional necessity. A mutual interest in that you care as much about my growth in the industry as a Recruiter as I do about you as a Leader. And so, when we're not busy filling seat's it would be nice if you could recommend me to some of your fellow Hiring Managers in the industry ;) Oh and, it would be great id you could pay on time. So if we agreed a 30 payment term, please don't make me ask you on day 31 for payment. It's not a good use of my time nor is it good/fair business. Now, I know the pool of potential GREAT Hiring Manager is small but if you or someone you know is awesome and they need support with their growth initiatives, get in touch: email@example.com / +1 617 480 9327 Darwin Recruitment is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
We're on the hunt for an NLU expert that's familiar with Open Intent Extraction from Natural Language Interactions... More specifically, someone who's worked with speech-related AI (conversation, dialogue systems etc.) to join a growing start-up that's literally breaking boundaries from within AI-powered gaming. It would be a huge plus too if you were comfortable building, implementing and launching things into a production environment end to end but I'm aware that it's rare to be an expert in writing scalable, production-ready code and NLU, so this wouldn't be a deal-breaker. What you do need however is to be able to do is implement functional versions of your own code in a language of your choice in order to create demos, prototypes, etc. From there, one of the senior engineers in the team would handle the real implementation. The work that this company is doing is not only highly complex but it's being done in unknown and unexplored territories meaning, you'll need to very comfortable working with other Engineers/Scientists/CV folks who all take a multimodal approach. There is no defined description for the role just yet and it's not being advertised. I am working exclusively with the Co-Founders to find someone that can boost the experience of their current team and make a big impact pre-seed. Get in touch today for more info....
