Before joining Emixa, Job worked for over two years as a recruitment consultant, a role closely related to his studies in Applied Cognitive Psychology.

Job found his way to Emixa through a tip from a friend who already worked there. “I felt a good connection during my first interview, and it’s only gotten better since.”
