What our employees say…
Engtal is such an exciting and innovative company to work for, it's growing so quickly, there is so much opportunity. The team is so driven, with great energy and great to work with. It's been such a great step in my career and I'm excited to see where the company goes.
A great work culture that's manifested by Mark and Chris, who have a fantastic, forward-thinking approach to recruitment. Engtal has given me a tremendous opportunity, and it's one of the best decisions I have made in my career.
Joining Engtal has been an incredible career move. I started remotely and felt fully welcomed by the entire office. It's a full desk recruiter's dream: the flexibility to run your desk how you want to with zero micromanagement while at the same time having an incredibly experienced CEO and founder to lean on for advice.
