    Building remote international teams

    Within 12 months of launching our new talent sourcing services, we had built a remote team of 20+ engineers from scratch for Indonesia's largest digital bank. We also signed a 12-month contract with a major European bank to source software engineering talent across their APAC offices

    ​We launch talent sourcing services

    Covid presented obvious challenges to our relocation model. It also, however, presented a massive opportunity. An opportunity to test the status quo (again!) and build a new suite of services that could positively impact the industry and provide optimal value to our partners

    Functionn is born

    Our founder, Neil Matthams, relocates from Singapore to Perth and launches functionn. After 15+ years of recruiting techies for some of the world's biggest companies, he decided the time was right to challenge the traditional recruitment agency model. Functionn was thus founded as a remote-first business using cutting-edge technology and talent sourcing methodologies to headhunt software engineers from emerging global markets
