Hi! I'm Jill Wohlner (she/her), the Founder & CEO of underpin. I've been in the technical recruiting world for over a decade at companies like DigitalOcean, Fastly, Simple, Rackspace and more. I find immense joy in helping folks find jobs they love.
My approach to recruiting has always been as an advocate for job seekers, in addition to working hard to find the best humans for individual companies. I do not believe candidates are simply interchangeable, as jobs are not one size fits all.
Underpin has been my first endeavor as an external recruiter and because of that, I operate with a different mentality than many recruitment agencies. I want to see each candidate find success in their new role and be fulfilled by the work and the people they work with. I can only do this by being embedded in my clients' companies. I get to know teams and see how companies operate before I am comfortable using my platform to find qualified candidates. Also, it's more fun to get to know the teams :-)
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my amazing wife, Jen and our three dog-children, Mrs. Peanut Butter, Green Bean & Pikachu. I also love to cycle, build LEGO and watch trashy television.
