Hi, I'm Zuricka

I specialize as a Tech Recruiter for Software Development, focusing on mid to senior-level roles enabling businesses for permanent and contracting software engineering positions throughout NZ.

I use a distinctive approach to talent acquisition by blending intuition, consciousness, aura energy and seamlessly integrating cutting-edge tools.

This has enabled me to help New Zealand focused businesses thrive and reach new markets by matching the right blend of tech skills required to drive high ROI's.

Change for the better.

I asked my clients, “What has improved since working with me and my team?” Here’s just some of what they said:

Ryan S - Head of Technology

First Class Service

"After a very long time our team has some of the best skilled engineers. Being a small team and competing with more prominent players, attracting talent has always been a mission. Zuricka helped us find our Lead C# Engineer and DevOps Engineer when we needed help. She walks with you and recommends engineers who would fit with the ethos we are building” 

Mia D. - Software Development Manager

Highly Recommend

While our in-house HR excels in handling junior to mid-level engineering roles, collaborating with Zuricka becomes invaluable for sourcing niche talent with unique skill sets. She has an eye for picking talent. She recently helped us find our senior engineer from Argentina who was moving to New Zealand. He has successfully helped us upgrade from Python to Go, enhancing our team's capabilities. 

Aria C. - Director of Software Development

Beyond Our Expectation

We were introduced to Zuricka through her attempt to contact us through a cold outreach campaign. We were already involved with a significant recruitment firm. She managed to secure an engineer returning from Dubai to NZ in the Ruby on Rails space. Despite our ongoing collaboration with the larger recruitment entity over the past six months and their ample resources, they failed to deliver results. 

[An Open Letter]

You live and breathe technology, and I am confident it's not merely writing lines of code that you enjoy. Instead, it's crafting applications and products to improve lives.

If that’s true, then I invite you to consider a different approach in both business and your career.

A path where competition and office politics take a back seat. Imagine a reality where teams build without overshadowing others.

None of us wake up asking "What can I do today to get even or to overpower someone?"

Instead, we wake up asking, "What can I do today to live a happier life?"

This question shapes our day, guiding how we contribute to the tech world to lead a successful, fulfilling life.

I've learned it's not about doing more, but choosing what's truly important.

If this philosophy speaks to you, you might appreciate my approach and how I add value.

In 2016

I founded StraightUp with a mission: to empower exceptionally skilled software engineers who often get overlooked due to poor CV writing or interview performance to find work with thriving NZ software teams.

Bringing positive energy to the hiring process, I create an atmosphere that promotes collaboration and innovation. It's not just about filling positions; it's about catalyzing growth and success.

Whether you're a software engineer seeking your next adventure or a NZ focused business ready to embrace a new era of hiring, let's connect and co-create a future where work is not just a job but a vibrant, fulfilling experience.

My approach is simple: As a solopreneur, I collaborate with like-minded individuals to run StraightUp, where each brings skills greater than mine to carve a niche and stay profitable.
