Who we are

We’re passionate recruitment professionals who understand the recruitment challenges faced in the startup world. We are also heavily invested in the developer experience having seen first hand the effects of developer burnout. We want to empower development teams by supporting the innovators and builders who are bringing the developer tools (devtools) of the future to market to fix productivity issues in the software development lifecycle.

Founder: Louise Oglivy

”Companies that invest in a better software developer experience understand the importance of talent attraction and retention. From idea generation to code production, the process of software development is a captivating creative journey – yet all too often potential roadblocks impede its progress.

Our clients are tackling many of these challenges faced by software developers on a daily basis through the creation of powerful developer tools and platforms and by focusing on developer productivity engineering.

Develocity combines over 20 years recruitment experience with our knowledge and expertise in this emerging trend. It’s important to us to partner with companies who are looking to make a difference to the environments in which developers work to avoid burn-out”.
