End of the Year 2015

January 4th, 2016 by Lynx, Inc.

Another year has come and passed! 2015 was filled with exciting changes for Lynx, including a reorganization and transformation of our company, and a big move from Lexington to our new headquarters on the funky and eclectic Moody Street in Waltham.

As we look ahead to 2016, we are eager to continue serving our clients and customers to match quality technical talent with challenging and rewarding job opportunities.

Our clients have great things to say about us – see what they have to say in their own words…


“I’ve said it before and will say it again, you’ve always made me feel like a friend and not just another resume, I’ve enjoyed every minute I’ve worked with you and know for a fact we will continue to be in touch over the years!”

“I have known Sophia for years, and it was a great pleasure to work with her recently when I was looking for a new position. Sophia took the time to understand in detail the type of role that I was looking for. This included the technology and the type of company I wanted to work for. As a result, she matched me with exactly the positions I was interested in, and represented me very well to the hiring managers.
She was also very proactive about finding a number of high quality matches, and quickly arranging interviews and following up. Sophia is really a top-notch recruiter, and I would highly recommend working with her.”

“Thank you again for your help and support. I will be sure to reach out to you in the future, as you were invaluable in my search for jobs this past spring.”

“I think that you guys were pretty great. I appreciated that you went out and found multiple opportunities for me quickly, rather than the other recruiters I dealt with who brought me one opportunity and stopped searching, and the first recruiter I dealt with when I initially started searching took until the end of last week to even come to me with one opportunity.”

“I really appreciated you keeping in touch throughout the months looking for a job. I also really appreciated the quick response to emails and phone calls.”

“Sophia made all the difference when I was searching for a new position. Her commitment to my search goals led me to several exciting opportunities and I was delighted to accept an offer from one. It’s a level of attention I’ve not encountered anywhere else and I’ll certainly call on her first in the future.”

Joining a Software Startup: What you need to know – Part 2

July 25th, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

To start off this blog series about factors to consider in the search for a job at a startup, I’m going to talk about examining and evaluating a company’s concept and technology.

Every company started with a central idea for a product or a service, and whether this idea is thoroughly researched and planned can greatly affect whether the company finds success or ruin. Read the rest of this entry »

Joining a Software Startup: What you need to know – Part 1

June 22nd, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

Many people in the high tech industry dream of working at a startup, a small new company where they can have a huge impact on the direction and technology, and do exciting work in a fun environment. There’s nothing wrong with having this dream, but it’s not quite as simple as saying yes: there’s a lot more information that needs to go into your decision, and you need to be prepared to make your own evaluation of a company. All of those engineers who started at a Google or Read the rest of this entry »

Where to Locate Your Software Startup

April 26th, 2012 by Sophia Navickas

Entrepreneurs are faced with the decision about where to locate their company. As they begin to look  – the cost of rental space, size, amenities and parking often come to mind. I’d like to suggest they consider some long range and short range planning of another sort, namely, what type of employee am I most interested in attracting and where will they most likely want to work.

If you are a new firm interested in attracting more candidates whose experience  is in the 0-8 year range then be aware that there is a clear trend emerging.

#2011was a Great Year for #Boston #Software #Recruiting at Lynx

December 28th, 2011 by Lynx, Inc.

As 2011 comes to a close, here are my observations about some of the #trends in the Boston software community as reflected by the recruiting work Lynx did this year.

  1. #Hiring demand for talented software professionals started the year strong and got stronger. Our business was up over 40% from 2010, and we have more search assignments currently underway than any time in the last decade. All signs point to this continuing in 2012.
  2. The bar for hiring was high. No matter what level of experience, top performers with good track records could often have their pick of multiple offers. On the other hand, average and below-average engineers are finding it increasingly difficult to remain employed in #hightech. Like society at large, there is much less of a software #middleclass than before.

Lynx flips out at Dart Boston Flip cup tournament

December 15th, 2011 by Lynx, Inc.

Last night Gemvara/DartBoston/IdeaPaint hosted a great startup networking event, a flip cup tournament that Lynx participated in!  For those of you who are not familiar with flip cup, it is a classic college drinking game which consists of two teams of 5 matches up across a table with 5 cups of beer.  The goal, drink the beer and flip the cups faster than the other team!  There are many versions of the rules; in this case we start with taking the cup, then touch the table, cheers, touch the table again and drink….and onto the next person.  Read the rest of this entry »
