Meet our founder

I spent years as a DBA. Much of the work was sourced through recruitment agencies – and it was painful. I could never shake the feeling that things could be so much better, that simply adding technical knowledge to the process would lead to a hiring utopia.

And so, Data Idols was born. We’re not your average recruiter. We’re one of the good guys and we’re trusted by top brands and top talent because we love tech as much as they (you) do.
