Nathan Wawruck's Summary

IT recruiter with Robert Half Technology, based in Vancouver, Canada. My main specialties are connecting IT professionals with both contract and permanent career opportunities in and around British Columbia. I have been in the recruitment industry since 2006, starting with an agency in Tokyo, Japan.

I have strong experience in video game industry since 1995, having worked in the games industry for several years before transitioning into the recruitment business. I have senior level connections with many of the video game studios in Vancouver!
