Helping get your startup off the ground

About Me

Who am I?

I'm Elliot, a seasoned tech recruiter with over a decade of experience hiring the very best talent for companies including Uber, Netflix and Calm.

I have lived and worked in a number of countries around the world, including the UK, the Netherlands, Singapore, Korea, India and the USA. I've also hired for companies in almost every major market, giving me exposure to candidates from all backgrounds and walks of life.

I've spent time as both an agency recruiter, covering a broad range of positions at a leading financial services recruitment firm, and an in-house recruiter in the constantly evolving tech industry.

Why am I best placed to help your company?

During my time at Uber, I helped grow the company from around 50 employees in Singapore, and Asia, to over 1000, as one of the first recruiters in the region. I helped hire for almost every key function within the company from Security, to Design, to Marketing, and Sales. I also played a key role in helping the company hire in newly launched markets, like Thailand, Malaysia and Japan.

Subsequently, at Netflix, I formed part of the initial talent acquisition function in Singapore, and helped support the company's growth from a 40-person team to over 500 people, spanning a number of countries including Korea and India. As one of the first recruiters at Netflix, I covered every function that we hired for, including Content, Marketing, PR/Comms/Publicity and Engineering. After relocating to Europe with Netflix, I was tasked with helping the company in its EMEA expansion, and in hiring in new locations like Turkey and Poland. In this role, I supported the growth of Corporate Functions, covering everything from Finance to Security, from Tax Accounting to IT Support, and Legal to Public Policy.

I'm now leading the talent acquisition function at Calm in Europe, as the company looks to double-down on its commitment to hiring in the region.

A little more about me

Outside of recruiting, I'm a self-confessed nerd who loves all things tech and can mostly be found reading up on the industry or geeking out over the latest Apple product. I've also taken a keen interest in the web3 space, and am an avid Crypto investor. I also have a four-year old pup called Spot, who loves walkies and playing fetch. I'm based in the UK but am fully remote and able to work on roles across time zones and geographies.
