“Sangeeta is a most extraordinarily productive technical recruiter, a one-woman army. She listens well to the technical job description, however complex or obscure, makes sure she understands the need, and then produces a string of candidates who are exact matches or very close. She also figures out how to sell the role and the company to prospective hires and gets them interested and excited about applying. She'll be a great asset to any recruiting team"
“Sangeeta is a great and energetic recruiter. She tirelessly follows up on *every* lead that she gets taking it to its logical conclusion. She proactively finds leads and looks for people who can validate the lead, whether by mining websites, or looking for connections within the company. One of the best recruiters I've worked with.
“Sangeeta was extremely instrumental in opening the door and convincing me to come to Square. She was very candid about the whole process and helped navigate the waters very well. Definitely reach out to her if you're interested in coming to Square or other startups!"
“Sangeeta is a world-class recruiter that helped build Coursera into the company it is today- I cannot recommend her more highly. She's one of the reasons why I chose to work at Coursera, and why I'm still there today."
