About Us

WHO WE ARE

Functionn are an on-demand talent sourcing company. We partner with talent acquisition teams, early stage founders and hiring managers who need flexible, project-based sourcing support without the price-tag of a traditional recruitment agency. From seed level startups, to hypergrowth unicorns and multinational corporations, we take an innovative approach to scaling tech teams beyond the traditional recruitment playbook.

We have productised the recruitment life-cycle to bring our partners  one core product; “Talent Sourcing-As-A-Service” (TSaaS).

Our in-house sourcing methodology has allowed us to recruit elite talent for some of APAC’s leading brands like Canva, Credit Suisse and AirTasker. This includes alumni from Google, FaceBook, Amazon, Alibaba and Yandex. TSaaS can bring this calibre of talent into your pipeline through both local and international searches.

Driving our offering is Neil Matthams, who has over 15 years of specialist technical recruitment experience across Australia, Europe and Asia.

Neil maintains a global network of senior stakeholders and has successfully placed hundreds of candidates across multiple industries, spanning from tier one investment banks through to blue chip multinational corporations and unicorn startups.
