I have worked with Cian and his team in nineDots since the end of January. Cian came recommended by the crowd on the ITC and it has been nothing short of eye opening in terms of their service and delivery. They have been successful in filling nearly our whole team; this is why we dropped using all bar nineDots and one other agency - it cut out the noise and helped us focus on what we needed to do.
We interview nearly every person they send over - they really understand our technical stack so they only send us candidates who are a match for our needs. I like nineDots' approach, they are honest, really personable and add a lot of value to our business. They implemented a few things that we haven't seen other agencies use. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and continually do so.

As bonkers.ie continues to grow, I found I was it a challenge to source well vetted, suitable candidates; I was then introduced to Cian. I have now worked with nineDots on a number of occasions in the last few months and they have produced well-screened candidates and were successful at placing each role, both from a technical and cultural perspective. I have found Cian to be responsive, personable and efficient. If you are looking for someone who knows the market, I would give nineDots a shot.

Cian is one of the most proactive recruiters I have had the pleasure of working with. He has been a huge asset in helping us recruit a new Frontend team and assisted us in hiring Scala Engineers. From the get go, he understood our culture which is greatly important to us, as well as our niche technical requirements and introduced us to perfect candidates in a quick turnaround time - his expertise and transparency is refreshing to see. Cian brings quality and value to the recruitment process and I'm looking forward to continuing our relationship in the future
LAUREN HALL Lead Recruiter at Goodlord.co
Cian and the team love a challenge and have been a fantastic help with some of our most niche roles.
Their approach is transparent and refreshing, no challenge is too big and they always go that extra mile. I would highly recommend nineDots to any company out there looking for an agency that delivers!

nineDots have been great at engaging us with candidates suited to very specific roles when needed. These areas have included Senior Python Engineers as well as some Manager level candidates. Candidates we receive are always engaged and have a good knowledge of our company. It's great to partner with a company who understands our business.

nineDots have been instrumental in growing our development team. They understood our current hiring strategy which is 'quality over quantity', which also fits in with their philosophy well. There hasn't been one bad recommendation from them which saves a tremendous amount of time. If they are not representing you now they should be.

The fundamentals of recruitment and our job haven’t changed, what needs to change is how recruiters operate. With that in mind, nineDots is based on a value-add rather than the age-old ‘let’s throw sh*t against a wall and hope it sticks’ methodology. We don’t believe you need to wear a suit in order to be professional and we think people should be treated like people, not commodities.
Culture is king and something we find a lot with this whole ‘square peg, round hole’ scenario is, that people are thinking of the short-term fix, be it due to KPI’s out of your ears, poor management, time constraints. The list goes on - but the short-term solve is broken and a waste of everyone's time.
We're about the long-term, nineDots is a two-way street. Candidates and clients - we treat them both equally; take the time to really understand what they are about and what they are looking for. From there, it’s clear as day whether or not they will suit each other.
Create real relationships and that is half the battle - this is what is important to us and how we help people and companies grow.
