What our clients say

Markus Witte

CEO at Babbel

“I worked with Rita in finding Babbel’s new VP of Didactics. It was a demanding search since there are rather view eligible candidates who have the language learning expertise, the digital product experience and the strategic acumen that we were looking for. We not only find a great fit for this role but we even extended the position to Chief Product Officer – a great addition to the senior management team that had and has a tremendous impact for the company.

Rita did this in her in-house position and worked with me and with various people from the didactics team. She handled the search extremely well in a way comparable to what you would expect from a top-notch search firm.”

Mathis Büchi

Co-Founder & CEO of Taxfix

“Rita took over temporarily the recruiting at Taxfix for 9 months. Unlike anyone she has a great understanding of people and a very friendly personality – a super important trait in recruiting. At the same time, she is structured and result-oriented in her work and delivers results. She was the perfect interim solution for recruiting at Taxfix and brought us many outstanding people. I would work with her again any day.”

Péter Halácsy

CEO at Budapest School & Co-Founder at Prezi

“If you want to jazz up your team and you want to hire bunch of people with an amazing speed then you shall work with Rita. Her energy, positive attitude and focus helped us to build an amazing team in Prezi.”

Lyudmila Barabash

Junior Software Engineer at Babbel

“I had the pleasure to work with Rita. She was my Manager for around 2 years.
Rita combines her numerous talents and skills in every task she takes part in. It doesn’t matter in what kind of field she works, she always does her best to get things done. Rita knows how to work with people and how to create a great atmosphere for a team and company. She makes the whole recruitment process very simple and straightforward. If you are looking for a reliable, considerate service and a recruiter who genuinely care about your applications, I would recommend working with Rita.
She has a unique ability to be detail orientated, hardworking and creative all at the same time. I’d wish everyone to have such a team lead!”
