What our clients think..

“Sony needed to establish a whole team in Berlin within a couple of months.

Within only a couple of days, the team at XL Engine had submitted many quality candidates. I commissioned 3 agencies to help us staff our Berlin office. XL Engine was the only company that produced high calibre candidates that were exactly what we were looking for.

They sincerely care about delivering what is best for their clients and I would recommend XL Engine as a provider of Technical Staffing solutions for any organization."

HR Lead [Playstation Now]

"XL Engine are an excellent recruitment team. We worked closely together while we were looking to expand the Data team over a number of months on a number of challenging hires.

With their help we managed to hire a few great additions to different teams.

They were always in regular contact with both sides (ourselves and the candidates) doing a great job in making the recruitment process as smooth as possible.

I highly recommend XL Engine if you want to recruit great engineers."

Data Services Manager [Betsson Group]

"XL Engine are one of the few recruitment companies I have come across who has really made the effort to build a relationship and fully understand what we are looking for.

This is why I have already worked with them both Wimdu and Delivery Hero.

I can be sure that any candidates their team identify will be a good fit with our requirements, and the support that they provides throughout the recruitment process is first class."

Global Head of HR [Delivery Hero AG]

“After months of unsuccessful interviews, we asked XL Engine to support us with a number of critical hires.

After few quick iterations we got the perfect match. Thanks to XL Engine, we now have a great Senior PM, Release Train Engineer and increased the potentials of the team.

I would recommend XL Engine to any company looking to take on staff, they’re first class!”

Head of Product [Bonial International GmbH]

“Whilst at DeinDeal, I’d been struggling to find the people I needed from our current recruiters.  I engaged XL Engine in January (2015) to find me 1 Senior product owner and 4 Senior Developers which I needed to start quickly.

In just over a month we’d found 2 Senior Product owners (not 1) to take on the front and back end of our product, and managed to have the entire team signed up by the end of April.

I’d have no problems recommending Vertex and will continue to partner with them when building high performance teams.”
