Shaping the IT industry
one placement at a time

At Optimus Search, we are specialists in the provision of Digital, Data and Life Sciences recruitment services.

We identify, engage and secure the leading tech talent in the European market place and connect them with the most exciting businesses and opportunities across the continent. However, our interest in IT goes beyond our main role within it. By building partnerships and communities, we do what we can to improve it on a daily basis.

Our values are integral
to everything we do

Without our guiding principles, we would not have made our business the success it is today. They are the reason we are trusted and will always inform how we approach our work.


Passion

We are passionate about our business, our brands and our clients.


Proactivity

A proactive mindset means always being prepared for change.


Innovation

A genuine commitment to implementing cutting-edge talent solutions.


Transparency

We pride ourselves on being open and acting with integrity at all times.

Success has taken us from Britain to Bavaria

The markets we work in constantly progress, so we do too. It’s this approach that has taken us from our beginnings in the mobile market to our three market-leading divisions of today.

We’ve placed thousands of talented technical specialists into hundreds of companies throughout Europe and opened offices in London, Munich and Frankfurt along the way. Our storied history of recruiting in the UK and Germany has seen us operate in many markets and we don’t intend to stop any time soon.
