Testimonials

Opus is the best all around horsepower / strategy and operations recruiter in the business - think McKinsey and Goldman BAs who are ready to take on anything.
Shirley Chen
CEO, Narrativ
Opus knocked it out of the park for us: I have never in my career taken 100% of recommended candidates from a recruiter to a screen.
Brian Balfour
CEO, Reforge
I’ve worked with a few other recruiting firms and to date this has been the best one so far – the profiles of folks you’re sending our way are way more on point that I’ve seen previously.
