​Our expertise in Cloud, DevOps & Automation Recruitment

​“Software is eating the world,” was said by Marc Andreessen and published in The Wall Street Journal in 2011.

Almost a decade later, software continues to munch on, evolving even further thanks to developments in cloud which has enabled SaaS and scalability, and the enterprise adoption of DevOps – as a tool, process and culture.

Driven by the need for greater speed-to-market, the uptake of Cloud and DevOps has enabled organisations to innovate faster in line with end-user needs, as well as competition and vendor ecosystems.
