“I worked with Ryan during 2022 – he was a recruitment consultant at Hoxhunt, and worked across a broad spectrum of roles – including Tech, Support, Product, and Data. Ryan brings a huge amount of experience to the table, and is highly adaptable due to his experience recruiting in a lot of different markets around the world, with his deep experience in the US market having helped Hoxhunt find talent that is often overlooked by others. As if Ryan’s ability in the US market wasn’t enough, he is also highly adept at sourcing difficult and niche roles in the Finnish market, and I have no doubt that given other regions to work on, he would also rapidly succeed.

I really hope to get to work with Ryan again in the future – his kindness, wit, and ability to easily to explain complex concepts make him a fantastic colleague, and a brilliant recruiter!”

Ryan was invaluable in finding us the right candidates enabling us to achieve our hiring goals in a very short time. Ryan has shown his capability as an effective recruiter with passion and a motivation to help my team be successful. Working with Ryan, I was able to witness his recruiting approaches firsthand during our hiring cycles, where he leveraged his technical background as well as his understanding of our business and culture. Ryan always managed to form good relationships with my management team which led to great collaboration and helped us achieve our goals. Ryan repeatedly exhibited a high level of professionalism in addition to time and project management. I am confident that Ryan Boudwin will be an invaluable addition anywhere he goes, as Ryan consistently demonstrates the skills necessary to succeed.”

“During the last year we have grown our R&D team significantly. Part of the growth involved hiring senior team members and colleagues with specialized skills on the front end, Scala, DevOps, QA/QA automation, data science and more. Ryan has been extremely methodical in understanding the job descriptions for the various positions, reaching out across the US to look for candidates, establishing eligible candidate pipelines and driving the interview process within our R&D organization. Ryan is collaborative and works effectively across HR, R&D and finance to ensure alignment. Thanks to Ryan’s diligence and persistence, we have significantly accelerated our hiring process.”
