What's Our Story?

Austin Fraser started life...in a garage in England! Our co-founders, Pete and Del, kicked off the AF journey back in 2007 armed with nothing but one big vision. Eight years later, we had a thriving brand across Europe including offices in Munich and Berlin, Germany. We initiated operations in the United States starting in Austin, TX in late 2015. It was a huge success, so we established our second US presence in Denver, CO in January 2018 and recently we opened an office in Dallas, TX!

Here at Austin Fraser, we’re continually growing and moving forward. We don't plan on slowing down anytime soon, so if you're hungry for success, join us!

    I worked at Austin Fraser full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great culture where your coworkers become close friends
    - Amazing teammates with diverse interests outside of work
    - Stellar training (strong L&D department) where you'll learn critical tools about quality recruitment and the search for talent in the competitive Austin tech scene
    - Management has real insight into shaping success as a recruiter and are more than happy to share keys to success with you one on one
    - My Team Lead was one of the best people I've had the pleasure to work with.
    - Absolutely incredible office in the heart of downtown Austin. Close to prospective clients and networking opportunities. Scenic views of Town Lake and real close to it as well! Great food nearby.
    - C-Suite is incredibly genuine and supportive. They are also super transparent and forthcoming about the company's vision.
    - Fantastic annual trip to London (and other destinations going forward) for Annual Sales Meeting. Such a fun bonding experience.

    Cons

    The AF Management and L&D teams will ensure that you are properly trained and prepared for it, but this can be a pressure cooker environment. If you thrive having the ball in your hands as the clock is winding down; this is a great fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work in expanding US operations, planning after-hour activities, and generally being a warm and accepting environment where you can get one on one help if you need it.

    Lunch clubs/incentive trips are a major part of AF culture, but they bounce both ways. It's amazing if you're on them, but brutal if you're not. Having been on both sides of it; the swings can be pretty rough.
