I was looking for a role as a senior Scala developer in Amsterdam/Utrecht region.I was specifically looking to apply for one company through CodeGuild, but in the initial interview they also presented me with a couple of other options for companies which would be a good fit for me.They were very friendly, helpful and supportive, without being pushy. There was targeted help with prep for the interviews/assessments which was specific to each company, and they enabled me to give the best account for myself (definitely better than if I'd been preparing on my own).In the end I accepted an offer from one of the companies they presented me with instead of the original company I had in mind. It's an exciting challenge I'm looking forward to starting, and I never would have heard of the opportunity without CodeGuild.Can wholeheartedly recommend!

I am Golang software engineer from Brazil. For a significant amount of time, I was looking for a big step in my career, I wanted to find a "perfect" company in terms of challenges, and I wanted to move to Amsterdam. However, I was extremely pessimistic about how hard it would be for me to find such a position. Finally, when I was about to give up, I found Sven from CodeGuild, an extraordinarily communicative and supportive guy. Not only did he help me to find good companies, but he also shared his experiences and encouraged me to keep trying. Well, I landed a job within two months!His work didn't stop there. He was also willing to help me relocate and adjust to Dutch society. I can't recommend this guy enough, a truly exceptional professional.

Codeguild helped me find a Senior Software Developer role in Amsterdam.They operate like a chess player that understands the game and the business.It’s all about making the right move and not regretting it. If you, the candidate, or if you, the company, found a good opportunity then the guild helps you to find a better one.You get to talk about your limitations, your best qualities and about what you’re really looking for. They have a sensor that gets activated during conversations and you get immediate suggestions if anything would be a wrong fit.Roy, Serge and Robert are trained members who understand the technical domain, who know - like a coach - what questions to ask and when. The collaboration with them is a journey that walks through all aspects of a job and you get the right questions at the right moments.

I struggled for a while filtering through all the recruiters that were there to help me with nothing. But then I discovered CodeGuild and a guy named Roy. He tries to understand what is your desire for the next step in your career and find the best opportunity. He guides you through the whole interview process and is there for you to answer all of your questions.Many thanks to Roy Schaper and CodeGuild for being professional and accurate!

I would highly recommend CodeGuild to anyone who is looking for interesting opportunities.Their email about vacancies are very detailed and gives you a very good picture of what the actual role is about.I would like to thank Roy Schaper for the incredible support through out the process. Unlike other recruiters, Roy followed up with me before and after each round of interview. He is very responsive and guided me with valuable tips for the entire process.He had a clear understanding of what the role demands and what the employers were looking for, this is a rare trait I see in most recruiters.If you are on a job hunt or looking for interesting role, don't hesitate to collaborate with them.
