Kofi Group is one of the best recruiting firms I have ever worked with. They took the time to make sure I was the right fit for the job and, more importantly to me, made sure the position/company was the right fit for me. Every iteration between me, Kofi Group, and the client, I was made to feel that my best interest was handled with care and my concerns were addressed and alleviated or mitigated. Dealing with recruiters who are just trying to get you in whatever req's they have can be a pain. Kofi Group is not that kind of firm. They have set the bar to a very high standard.
– Roger Logan

– Christian I Arredondo
"I worked with Joseph at Kofi Group to fill a number of engineering roles. He was a joy to work with -- well-prepared for meetings and prompt to respond to questions. They did an excellent job screening developers for the role and quickly re-calibrated as we adjusted our criteria. Would definitely work with them again."
- Alex Debrie
"My interactions with Michael at Kofi Group raised the bar for my understanding of how effective and enjoyable it can be to work with a truly excellent recruiting partner. They have the technical capability to intuitively understand complex roles and their needs, a deep and excellent network that they are able to tap for contacts and have the interpersonal skills that simply make them a pleasure to interact with. Whether you're on the placement side or the opportunity-seeking side, they simply rock."
- Tim Bozarth
"Kofi Group is effective at matching job seekers with the correct and most relevant opportunities for their skill sets and career needs and helping employers meet their talent pool demands by connecting them with people who are the right fit for the company. They work extremely fast and are thoroughly professional. I reached out to George about a career change, and within only a few weeks he connected me with a great company, with terms that worked perfectly in my favor. A+"
