‘Over the past 2 years, we’ve found working with Rob and the team at Martinsen Mayer to be fantastic. We’ve hired in multiple regions with them, frequently with highly specific JD’s and have had full commitment and dedication to the roles from Rob + company”

Ian Cohen
CEO - Lokker.com

We have tried many different recruiting agencies and channels, and Martinsen Mayer has been the #1 firm we’ve worked with by a wide margin. They’ve quickly perfected our candidate value props, sourced incredible candidates, and helped us close them into happy employees. Additionally, they’ve helped promote our company via their podcast which was a delightful surprise. 10/10 would recommend them!
