Do you want to know what inspired us to create Merlin?

We were tired of dealing with headhunters who did not understand both tech or soft skills of the positions we were working with.

If this vibes you, it is because you share our vision of becoming the best ambassadors by offering the best candidate experience in the headhunting process.
