Recruitment. Consulting. Support. As IT should be.TM

We're Mongoose Gray

Yep ... another IT recruitment f irm.

What makes us different?
We're former software engineers, system architects and technical consultants.

We have 20+ years’ experience doing the roles we now recruit for.
We understand what our candidates do and what our clients want.

We have been on both sides of the interview table.
We know what it's like to be in your shoes.

How we work

1. We listen to you

When you talk to us, we pay close attention to what you want. But we will push back, challenge and even say no if we believe it's in your best interests.

2. We focus on you

We find the right people for the right role. Not just skills, but fit too. We won’t waste your time. Typically we’ll only introduce a handful of candidates. The right candidates.

3. We move heaven, earth... mountains...

You want a multilingual, Fintech-savvy data engineer, with a passion for green causes, to build a cloud-centric analytics platform? We’ll find them.

We put in the legwork so you don't have to.
And we can do magic.

What we bring to the party (apart from a rabbit in a hat)

For Clients

1. Selectivity

We give you a shortlist of high-calibre, precisely-matched, fully-briefed candidates.

2. Knowledge

We understand your technical specifications, because we’ve worked in your industry.

3. Stewardship

We are your eyes and ears in the market. And your voice. True brand ambassadors.

4. Honesty

We are not afraid to challenge the status quo or ask the difficult questions.

5. Tenacity

Laser-focused, we will tick the boxes on your wish list, technical or otherwise.

6. Trust

We are proud to have built our business through word-of-mouth and referrals.

For Candidates

1. Authenticity

We don’t deal in mindless keyword matching. We won't shoehorn you into your next role.

2. Transparency

We give you timely, honest and constructive feedback at each stage of the process.

3. Partnership

We want to share your career journey and build relationships, not just one-off engagements.

4. Understanding

We speak your language. We’ve done the roles we recruit for.

5. Empathy

We know you’re a person, not a commodity. We champion your best interests at all times.

6. Integrity

We tell it like it is. We don’t do spin.

But hey... don't just take our word for it.
Hear what others are saying.

Right. Let's get specific.

You need us if you want to fill positions in:

Artificial Intelligence | Data Engineering | Cybersecurity | AdTech | Ecommerce | HealthTech | FinTech | Blockchain | PropTech | Customer Success | Cloud Services | Machine Learning | Management Consulting | Operational Excellence

You need us if you want support with:

Support Analysts | Business Analysts | Data Scientists | Data Engineers | Product Managers | CTOs / CIOs | Full stack Developers | Mobile Developers | UX/UI Designers | Technical Leads | Project Managers | QA Consultants | Solution Architects

You need us if you are ...

  • a high-growth, investor-backed startup, scaleup, boutique or SME
  • passionate about safeguarding your workplace culture as you scale
  • short of the time and resources needed to pinpoint your ideal recruits
  • a candidate looking for that perfect trinity of tech stack, product and culture
  • keen to experience a refreshingly different approach to technical recruitment
  • want to speak with someone who knows the difference between Java and Javascript

We like a challenge

We particularly enjoy filling roles that can’t be keyword-searched or pigeon-holed. How do you find a techie that can communicate fluently with both the dev team and the C-suite? What is that role even called? We find answering these questions fascinating.

We recruit internationally

We have helped companies scale rapidly in the UK, across Europe, APAC and the Americas. We have a passion for adapting to cultural nuances and repositioning roles according to geography.

So who exactly are we?
