Words of Praise for Mark Gentry

"Mark is a secret weapon for recruiting top talent in a tight recruiting market.  We’ve worked with him to source top engineering and business development talent with a great hit record.  Mark is very easy to work with and is super efficient.” Jeff Daniel, CEO, StarMaker 

"Mark helped us source and bring in several of our key early hires on Engineering and Operations. He also suggested some great improvements to our hiring process, and is a pleasure to work with!" -- Harry Robertson, CTO, Liftoff

"Working with Mark and his team has been wonderful. The quality level of the candidates that they have helped us uncover can't be beat - definitely a key part of our sourcing pipeline and the first place I go when starting a new search." - Matt Koidin, CEO at Pocket

"I toss a lot of work Mark's way and he has never let me down. Sometimes our startups need help with top of funnel sourcing for just a handful of tech or niche roles. Mark's sourcing solution fills this need perfectly and he's not shy about diving into obscure roles or narrow searches. I've received constant positive feedback from our portfolio company CEOs. He's also a very nice and honest guy. Pro-Tip: he'll work harder for you if you give him some company schwag." - Lem Diaz, Google Ventures

"I can’t say enough great things about Mark and the process that he ran hiring our new marketing exec.
He sourced, delivered and help close the candidate.  More importantly, he brought me over 50 tier 1 candidates that I interviewed either in person or via phone.  He also interfaced with my board and provided timely and informative updates.  The board was thrilled, I was thrilled, and the new candidate is excited to start working with us." 
- Jeff Yasuda, CEO at Feed.fm

"I’ve worked with Mark in couple of occasions and was impressed by the professional process and approach to recruiting technical talents.  Mark work helped my reduce dramatically the amount of candidates and made every interview count." - Ranan Lachman, CEO of Pley.com

"Mark is a fantastic recruiter. I first met him in 2010 when recruited me at Mozilla. At that point, Mark suggested to keep in touch as he viewed tremendous potential in me. Fast forward 4 1/2 years, I am now CTO of Pley with a engineering team that Mark worked with the CEO and me to recruit the team before I even started as the CTO. If you have a start up and need to build a team quickly I would hire Mark. He makes it seem easy." - Anurag Phadke, CTO at Pley.com

"I started working with Mark and his team just after the launch of Tango. He is by far the best recruiter we worked with and was able to source most of the technical recruits for over 3 years, except of course for our internal referrals. What I like the best about his approach is that he tailors his work to the company he works with. For Tangle for example, it was important to find stellar engineers and convince them to join us to build one of the very best mobile teams in Silicon Valley. Mark was amazing at finding people that were not looking for a new job yet and convincing them to come and speak to us. I also love the fact that Mark has become as passionate as we are about Tango, his enthusiasm is so contagious!" - Eric Setton, CEO and Founder at Tango

"Mark is simply a superstar tech recruiter. We now have been working working together for 15 months, which resulted in over 50 top engineers hired. No need to say more. Mark is always looking to create an edge for his customers in attracting great talent through the use of innovative platforms or approaches. He is a results-oriented recruiter of great integrity and a great guy to work with." - Jean-Philipe, COO at Tango


"We had a number of open position within our Metrics and Web Development teams that Mark was very effective at filling. He has a very strong network and track record of working with innovative companies" - Daniel Portillo, Talent Partner at Greylock

"I have high standards and went through THREE recruiters before finding Mark. He delivered on all his goals, ahead of schedule and under budget. I will use Mark for all my tech recruiting at Loomia and future ventures." - Dave McMurtry, CEO at Global Stars Foundation

"Mark did a fabulous job in recruiting me as Sr. Product Manager for Intuit. He made the whole process as smooth as possible by facilitating all the steps from my first interview at Intuit to the day that I accepted the offer. Mark also helped me reach my decision to join Intuit by connecting me with many great people on the Intuit team after I received my offer." - David Park, Vice President of Product and Growth at HackerRank

"Mark did outstanding work for us at bamboo.com and was instrumental in helping us grow with high-impact hiring in a difficult recruiting environment. He's a complete pro." - Mark Searle, Senior Fellow for Global Programs at Lester Center for Entrepreneurship, Haas School of Business at U.C. Berkeley
