Our Testimonials

Here is what our clients and candidates have to say about us.

Here at Ruby Peak, they both come first!

Roya B., Canidate

“WOW!  There are no words that can express how amazing the folks at Ruby Peak Recruiting are!  For starters, Lori is absolutely the greatest person!  She stood right by me throughout the whole transition process:  From interviews to giving my resignation at a previous firm and well on into my new role!  I never felt as though her only concern was her “bottom line”.  Lori took the time to really care about my transition and really listened to what I wanted in a new position.

I had THE BEST TIME at their office, which is conveniently located near BART and easily accessible!  Lori, David, and I had a great conversation and we connected right off the bat.  I am so grateful for all the work that Lori and David put in to find me the “perfect fit”.  They made the process feel so easy and painless, especially during a major life change!

The most awesome thing about Ruby Peak is that they ACTUALLY do direct hire placement along with temp and temp-to-hire roles (they don’t just pretend to do so just to appeal to the many candidates out there who are looking for their opportunities).  Too many other recruiting firms will reach out to the masses with fake ads and fake opportunities just to “collect” candidates and do a quick placement.  Ruby Peak takes a risk with direct hire placement because they need to maintain their relationships with other companies, as well!

Put your best foot forward and you will have all the support in the world from the Ruby Peak team!  THIS is where your search ends for the best recruiters in the Bay Area – don’t waste your time anywhere else!”

Keoni F., Candidate

“Ruby Peak Recruiting is like no other agency I’ve ever experienced. David Goldman has been the BEST recruiter, advisor, principal, etc anyone could ever ask for. He doesn’t play any games, nor will he waste your time. He’s very smart, genuine and sincere! He’s assisted me with phone interviews and in-person interviews – even if it was through another agency. I recommend Ruby Peak Recruiting! Ruby Peak Recruiting definitely sets one of the highest standards out there! I urge you all to experience this GREAT agency! Thanks for everything David! YOU ROCK!!!

Lisa T., Candidate

“I am thrilled to report that David Goldman found me a fantastic position that is a complete fit for me – I couldn’t be happier. I wholeheartedly recommend David to anyone who is looking to work with a recruiter. He combines a warm, personable approach with superior industry knowledge, creativity and integrity. David has been with me 100% from beginning to end, and continues to impress me with his follow up and commitment to my career and happiness.”

Dayna R., Candidate

“I highly recommend David at Ruby Peak Recruiting. I got laid off in July and had been out of work for 2.5 months. Having a background in HR and having negative experiences with other recruiting firms in San Francisco, I was skeptical. But, because I had been out of work for so long, I figured that I may as well give him a try, plus the great yelp reviews really helped boost my confidence about the situation.

During our first meeting David was very thorough, honest, and seemed to ask the right questions. He thought he had a good fit for me and we decided to pursue the opportunity. Throughout the process, David was attentive, reliable, and really advocated for me and my needs. He even coached me on interview skills and had a very personal approach to his placement technique.

I ended up getting the job and am very pleased! The job is extremely unique, very exciting, and a great fit. I highly recommend Ruby Peak and David to anyone that is out of work and looking for a great new job!”

David G., Co-Founder, FMCG Manufacturing Co.

“David and Ruby Peak immediately developed a good understanding of my company’s needs, helped educate us on the types of candidates we could/should expect for the position we were trying to fill, presented a range to us so that we could see for ourselves, added some creative ideas and managed the entire process smoothly and personably from start to finish (hire). Highly recommended!”

Leezah F., Candidate

“I’m coming upon my one year anniversary with a company David assured me would be a great fit. The year has flown by, and I truly feel like I finally have a job I love. When I was interviewing, David coached me before the interview, followed up afterward and was very communicative about everything in between. I highly recommend Ruby Peak Recruiting both for employers looking for the right ‘fit’ as well as anyone who wants a recruiter who cares about finding you the right job.”

Danielle L., Candidate

“David called me in for an interview after receiving my resume and I was immediately impressed with his professionalism and dedication. While every other recruiter turned me away as I was trying to relocate from San Diego, David worked with me and sent me on interviews with two wonderful companies. Ruby Peak Recruiting is interested in finding the highest quality candidates and matching them with the perfect opportunities; such a nice change from all the rest of the employment agencies only concerned about making a quick buck.”

The environment is exactly what I would have chose myself; down to earth, kind people in a casual yet professional atmosphere. It is everything and more than I could have hoped for. This job has had such a positive impact on my life and for that I will always be grateful to you. Keep up the good work.

“After meeting with (David), I immediately noticed that he was a different kind of recruiter who actually cares about the people he places in jobs and his clients as well.”
