“I engaged with Stott and May to help us find DevOps candidates to support our projects. They were very meticulous in understanding our business requirements and found candidates that were a very good fit. They build a trustworthy relationship with, not only us a company, but also with the candidates which led to a very smooth and stress-free recruitment process. "
