BOSTON, Mass., July 10, 2019 (UNDERSTANDING RECRUITMENT) -- This past week award-winning  technology, software and digital staffing consultancy Understanding Recruitment, has opened its first stateside office in Boston, Massachusetts. In the city dubbed to become the AI capital of the world the team will be working closely with candidates to bring them the most relevant, challenging and innovative career opportunities within Artificial Intelligence and Backend Engineering. 

The new office is being led by one of Understanding Recruitment’s most successful consultants, Matthew Ferdenzi, who successfully developed a team of six consultants specializing in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning recruitment in the UK. Matt will now be focusing on growing the Boston office over the next few years and brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge and experience.

Understanding Recruitment Inc. Chief Operating Officer Matthew Ferdenzi commentedMoving to the U.S. has always been one of my personal goals and Understanding Recruitment have given me the platform to go to Boston and set up my own office and take the bull by the horns really. It’s a massive opportunity and I’m hugely proud to be taking our business stateside. We think that Boston is a global hub with a flourishing tech market and a lot of potential and I’m looking forward to speaking to new candidates and expanding our client base over the coming years.

Ideally located between Boston’s historic North End and ever-evolving West End, Understanding Recruitment has opted to make the WeWork 200 Portland Coworking space their new Boston address. As well as covering Boston and the surrounding cities, Understanding Recruitment recently expanded into the Berlin tech market specializing in Java technology recruitment. With exciting plans for continued growth across new geographical territories the business is also aiming to boost their worldwide headcount from 50 employees to 100 by 2022.

Founding Director of Understanding Recruitment Inc. Chris Jackson concludedWe’re thrilled with the success we’ve had in Boston so far and with Massachusetts recruiting more Artificial Intelligence jobs per capita than all other U.S. states except Washington, I look forward to seeing the business go from strength to strength. Opening up in Boston was a very strategic decision that we took because we truly believe that the Boston tech market is strong and is evolving from its biotech roots towards Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies.
