DAM is hands-down the best contingency recruiting firm I’ve worked with. Unlike many (most?) recruiters, who waste my time with candidates who clearly aren’t a fit for us, DAM takes the time to find out what candidates want and what their motivations are before they present the candidate. The result is an efficient process in which everyone’s time is respected and only the most relevant candidates are delivered.
– Matt, CEO
DAM helped us find the several digital artists for the 6-hour mini-series “The Triangle” that we co-produced and VFX supervised. The result speaks for itself: We tackled 800 shots in two months of post with a team of 25 artists. The result was awarded with an “Emmy” – and several of the artists who we had hired through Digital Artist Management received the statue. In March of 2008, when my business partner Marc Weigert and I started working as Co-Producers and VFX Supervisors on Roland Emmerich’s new $200 million VFX-extravaganza “2012”, DAM was the first company we called to assemble a great in-house team of artists.
– Volker, CEO
DAM has been a great help to me providing me with a level of service I was not expecting which has been working out great! I was looking for a remote position in games… DAM found it for me and then they took over all the details on the business side of turning my goal of being a remote software engineer into a reality.
– David, Lead Software Engineer
DAM was very responsive and quick at identifying opportunities that matched my career search criteria. They are a pleasure to work with and the team has high integrity and character.
– Mark, Creative Director
DAM did an amazing job finding me a position quickly, and with the greatest of comfort on my end. I was delighted to hear from them knowing that when they called, they were ready with the information and skills that only the most dedicated people in his field attain which allowed me to make informative and correct decisions for my career.
– Jairo, Level Designer
Over the past several years, DAM has been able to consistently provide my company with high-quality job candidates. Unlike many other recruiters that we have dealt with, DAM only recommended candidates that were a clear match to our job descriptions and as a result, we hired and/or contracted numerous candidates that were referred to us. Even further, if I ever find myself looking for employment in the interactive entertainment industry, I will without a doubt talk to DAM about it.
– Steve, President
Unlike a lot of unprofessional recruiters, DAM does not act on your behalf without your permission. They do not talk you up and waste everyone’s time trying to get you interviews at jobs that don’t match your skill set or desires. Each time I’ve deal with DAM they have been excellent.
And once you do give the go ahead for DAM to search for you, it’s as if you’ve hired an army of people to scour the industry for you. They seem to have excellent internal communications with each other, and I have yet to experience the uncaring greed that seems typical of other recruiting companies.
On top of that, I hung out with them once at a gamedev mixer and they were just as cool in person.
– Kurt, Mobile Engineer
DAM masterfully negotiated my sla. I would no doubt have a lower position and a lower salary if it wasn’t for their expertise. For this I am eternally grateful!
– Oleg, Rigging Supervisor
It is always is a pleasure to consult with/do business with DAM. Their ability to manage multiple projects, simultaneously, without allowing any detail to slip by (unnoticed), is as impressive as it is comprehensive. I commend DAM’s commitment to their candidates and clients alike; as such, I wholeheartedly recommend them with the highest degree of enthusiasm to any/all prospective employers, clients, and/or business partners.
– Scott, Sr. Network Engineer
I love it here. The people are awesome and the culture is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Thanks so much for this opportunity.
– Jessica, Technical PM
I was really excited when DAM first contacted me with the job and I couldn’t be happier that it worked out! Thank you all so much for connecting us.
– Walker, Technical Director
I just want to thank everyone at DAM. It’s been an amazing experience working with you, and I can’t tell you how excited I am about this. You guys were able to match me up so well with opportunities that I really felt like I had an embarrassment of riches – which was, frankly, a huge boost to me with as difficult as things have been for me recently. So thank you, thank you, thank you!
– Robert, Senior Software Engineer
I’m only giving credit where credit is due. Sometimes I feel like there are more recruiting companies than there are companies to work for and most of them l don’t feel comfortable working with. Often it’s too obvious that they only care about moving you from A to B, no matter how bad the fit is. Working with DAM has always felt more personal and that makes all the difference. Nevertheless, I still wish the business model were more along the lines of talent agents.
– Gunter, Senior Engineer
