“RayboyIS our go-to talent acquisition team for important roles to fill.”

“We were thoroughly impressed with the speed, caliber and quantity of resumes that Rayboy was able to source for our search. We thought that this was going to be a long and difficult search given the very special skills and location presented by the job spec. Within no time we had many top quality prospects to interview and the job was filled very quickly. We were delighted with the quality of the engagement we had with Rayboy and will definitely use them on future searches.”

– Olivier Thierry- Chief Marketing Officer – Pivot 3

“Jordan, I have been in the hi-tech industry for over 25 years. Over the past 6 weeks since I began working with you, this has been the best experience working with a recruiter I have ever had. You and your team’s ability to find the right candidates has been nothing short of phenomenal. The 2 recent hires we have made through your firm were extremely difficult (one of them, we had been searching for the better part of a year). I would have no problem being a reference for you and letting other hiring managers know about you and your team’s capabilities.”

– Warren Bell- Vice President of Sales – SwiftTest

“Jordan and his team has placed over twenty Sales, Pre Sales, Marketing and executive management personnel with me over the past 5 years and 2 companies.  I have always felt we received great value for the fees charged and the talent Jordan comes up with continues to surprise us.  I will continue to work with Jordan wherever my travels take me.”

– Bob Fernander- CEO – Gnodal

“Rayboy Insider Search is the best recruiting company I have worked with. They are making a great effort to understand the requirements and find a candidate that  we need rather than the one they have a available. Jordan and his team are very thorough in following up and getting feedback every step of the recruiting process. Thanks to Jordan we hired a new valuable member of our team.”


– Mike Bello – Sr. Director – Professional Services and Applications

“Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed working with the whole Rayboy team.  The portfolio of extremely qualified candidates you provided NextIO was outstanding! I really appreciate your  “let’s get this done” attitude and professionalism.  I would be happy to act as a reference for any client or potential candidate in the future.  Also, looking forward to working with Rayboy team on the next project as we grow our company/organization.  Thanks again!”

– Atchison Frazer – Chief Marketing Officer – Gnodal

“I’ve worked with Amy for over 5 years now, and I’m always amazed at the quality of the work she does! Professional, thorough, detailed, responsive, and communicative are all characteristics that describe her. I can always depend on her to find high quality candidates when I really need them. She’s an excellent listener, she knows what I’m looking for, and she never wastes my time. Once I begin the interviewing process with one of her candidates, I never worry because she takes care of everything…… schedules the interview, communicates with the candidate, calls him after the interview to get his feedback, and then follows up with me. After working with her for so long, I can’t imagine doing it any other way!”


– Don Parkhurst – SE Director

“Jordan, I wanted to say thank you for all the great support you have been giving in finding top talent for my organization.

Thanks.”


-Paul Kaeley – VP/GM Global Services, Pivot3

I recommend Jordan, his team, and their services with great enthusiasm.”


– Richard Bravman – President and CEO – Pivot3

“Time is money and filling critical sales positions with highly qualifies candidates can be an arduous task.

The team at Rayboy Insider Research provided top quality candidates that were screened to my specifications.  Attention to detail was a welcomed surprise: scheduling meetings and logistics, interview debriefs, candidate follow up, coordination with HR, etc.

We were able to close on a top candidate in approximately 4 weeks and we are well positioned to accelerate revenue in early 2017. I look forward to working with RayboyIS for my future hiring needs.”

Without Jordan’s assistance we could still be searching today.”

– Andy Kowal- RSM, Federal Systems Integrators – Brocade

– Craig Corbin- Federal Strategic Programs Director – World Wide Technology

Great to have him here!!!!!!!”

– Jason Campagna- Virtualization Practice Director – World Wide Technology

“I just wanted to pass on a note of appreciation regarding our recent hiring of Rodney Tafuro.  It is obvious you take the qualification demands for our new hires serious.  Rodney exemplifies the top of high end talent we are looking for and your diligence in not only pursuing this resource but taking the time to learn our business to make it more attractive for candidates to consider WWT is a difference maker.  In addition, I don’t want to overlook the value of “ushering” both the candidate and WWT through a successful process of interviewing, negotiating earnings and finalizing a win-win hiring result.  We value your firm as a trusted partner in WWT’s on-going demands for growth for its continued success.”

– Matt Horner- VP, Professional Services & Market Development – World Wide Technology

– Tony Berg- Director, Data Center Practice – World Wide Technology

“I have been working closely with Jordan Rayboy for the past 18 months and a number of his candidates have been hired by our Public Sector sales organization. I enjoy working with Jordan because he consistently finds A players, prequalifies candidates against my expected profile, and is very effective in articulating the opportunity to candidates before they walk into my office.  This combination results in a motivated candidate that’s spent time doing their homework on the company & opportunity and interested in learning more about the organizational fit and potential to maximize their W-2.”

– Craig Mueller- Regional Manager, Department of Defense Sales – BMC Software

“Jordan did a great job finding very high quality candidates in a very short time. His attention to detail also helped move the hiring process along and kept everyone informed and on track.  It was a really positive experience and I look forward to working with him again.”

– Gordon Frank- Sales Manager – F5 Networks

“The RayboyIS team are consummate professionals.  Their service is outstanding, and they have a knack for finding very well qualified candidates regardless of market and geography.  Within a few days of discussing the requirements, Jordan presents me with a list of candidates to interview.  I’m always amazed by the quality of the candidates and how well they fit the profile of the position.  He is able to do that because he really understands what I’m looking for and takes the time on the front end to ask probing questions.”

“Follow up after the interview is an outstanding trait of Jordan’s and one that clearly differentiates himself from other recruiters.  Within a matter of minutes after an interview, I can normally expect a phone call from him to de-brief the interview.  His organizational skills are excellent, and he always has a handle on all the candidates.Amy Jackson is the “silent partner” on the RayboyIS team.  She works behind the scenes to make sure the interviews go smoothly.  She briefs the candidate on the position, the company, and even the individual they will be interviewing with.  She is extremely responsive and accommodating to my requests for resumes, schedule changes, and references.  Her execution is outstanding!”

– Donald Parkhurst- SE Director, North America – Avocent Corporation

“I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for the outstanding work you’ve done for us. Your ability to find numerous candidates in such a short amount of time is invaluable. More impressive is the fact that you’re able to find such talented candidates. Working with a recruiting firm that understands the business and has the ability to quickly grasp exactly what we’re looking for saves us so much time. Thank you and I look forward to working with you in the future!”

– Christopher Black- Director of Federal Solutions Engineering – World Wide Technology

“I am very pleased with the results I’ve had working with Jordan at Rayboy Insider Search. Jordan and his team did an outstanding job finding high quality candidates in a very short time period. I look forward to working with Jordan and his team going forward.”

– Ben McGucken- Sr. SE Manager – Brocade

“First off, I met Jordan in 2005. Jordan took the time to get to know me, my career intentions, and the types of cultures where I could thrive while other recruiters in the IT market merely wanted my resume. We’ve stayed in touch and last year he helped place me in my current management role at BMC Federal.

As a client, Jordan consistently locates and coaches top tier candidates for us. He keeps our searches in the utmost of confidence, and his team is perceived as a business partner of BMC Federal. Jordan Rayboy carries my strongest endorsement.”

– Matt Hartley- Federal Regional Sales Manager – BMC Software

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of recruiters in my career. Jordan and the team at Rayboy Insider Search are some of the best I’ve worked with. They were patient, persistent, delivered good candidates and didn’t waste my time. They communicated very well, managed the candidate interview process very well and made the experience as easy for me as they could. I highly recommend them!”

– Kevin Campbell- Director of Engineering – Datalink

“I just wanted to thank you for you and your team’s efforts around our recent Sales Rep and Sales Engineer hires. My team reported that you were far and away the most responsive recruiters they have seen in a while, but more importantly, they were very impressed with the quality of candidates brought to the table. Given that we had both internal and (other) external recruiters working to secure candidates for these last 2 positions, I think it speaks volumes that both final hires came from you. We appreciate your efforts and dedication to customer service and look forward to working with you on future hires.”

 – Al Crews- Vice President, Americas Branded Sales – Avocent

“In the current economic environment job openings have taken on a new importance. When positions open up it is extremely important to fill them as quickly as possible before the window of opportunity closes. Unfortunately this environment has also created a surplus of candidates but the ability to sift through and identify the best candidates can be difficult and time consuming. Jordan Rayboy has proved very adept at navigating through this new environment. He helped us identify, qualify and close two candidates for critical openings we had on our Federal team. Jordan spent time understanding the requirements for the positions and was able to quickly assemble a list of qualified candidates which streamlined the process, saving us time and money. The quality of candidates delivered by Jordan and the speed at which he moves sets him apart from other recruiters I have worked with.”

– David Crafton- Director of Sales – Government & System Integrators – Avocent

“I want to thank you for your help in filling our mid-Atlantic sales position recently. You found a textbook profile candidate, and although it’s always challenging to land the “not-in-play ‘A’ player,” you managed to get him interested, and KEEP him in the game for us all the way through the recruiting and hiring process. He’s a great addition to the team, and I really appreciate that you were able to help us get such a talented sales professional. I look forward to working with you to land more just like him in the future!”

– Mark Roberts- Area Director, State & Local Sales – BMC Software

“Recruiting is one of the most important jobs as a manager at BMC and key to my success. I need recruiters who ‘get it’ on delivering candidates who I know will make me successful. Jordan, you hit the mark over and over again with the ‘right’ candidates for BMC. You are making one of my most important jobs easy. I just turn to you. Thanks for the great work and I look forward to a long relationship.”

– Doug Lingenfelter- Federal Civilian Regional Sales Manager – BMC Software

“Rayboy Insider Search recruiting defines the true value and definition of recruitment. Since they take the time to listen about the positions, learn the company/culture, understand the hiring manager, they consistently and effectively match quality candidates. As a hiring manager, I can trust they are spending the cycles to qualify the right candidates and not waste my time. Too many recruiters simply provide resumes and feel they’ve done their job. Not with Rayboy Insider Search – they take ownership during the entire hiring process and become an extension of the hiring manager. You only need one recruiting firm when working with Rayboy Insider Search.”

– Deb Higgins- Federal Sales Manager – Vizioncore

“Jordan Rayboy and his associates are the most professional “recruiting consultants” I have worked with in over 25 years. They consistently deliver the highest quality candidates – in sales, pre-sales and sales management – candidates that are the best matches – for the requirement, the profile and criteria you provide them. They are driven to find the right people. They focus on you and they listen to and understand what you need.

They are connected – they know the market, the key players, and the top performers. They have done the necessary research and are prepared when an opportunity arises – so they are able to recruit many very successful people who are not “already on the street”.

Jordan Rayboy is a great example of “preparation meeting opportunity”. Over a 2-3 year period, he assisted the Americas management team, for a leading enterprise storage company, in filling almost every sales, pre-sales and solution architect position. It is a pleasure to work with Jordan and his team – they will deliver the best available people to your organizations.”

– Walker Smith- Sr. Director, Federal Sales – Hitachi Data Systems

“I first started working with Jordan Rayboy and his team in 2000. Over the years, he has proven to be the best recruiter that I’ve ever worked with. He brings a high sense of urgency that moves a hiring process along quickly. He has helped me build strong OEM sales and application engineering teams over the years that have become top performers in my organization. Jordan understands my business and I know I can always count on him to get the job done.”

– Tom Everett- Vice President-OEM Sales – Neterion

“I am a Sales Director in the storage industry. In this capacity I have worked with Jordan Rayboy as a candidate and as a hiring manager. As a candidate, Jordan did an excellent job of understanding the type of position and company where I would be the best fit. He very accurately represented the situation that I was interviewing for and then counseled me through the process. As a hiring manager, Jordan spent the appropriate amount of time understanding the hiring process and the profile of the desired candidates. With his extensive network, he was able to locate quality candidates in multiple cities in the US and Canada. Working with Jordan I will be able to build a high quality team in North America in a very short time.”

– William M. Downer, Jr.- Director, Strategic Channel Sales – Quantum

“Jordan Rayboy and his team have been an outstanding resource when it comes to recruiting top talent in the Storage Industry. They are a passionate group well qualified at finding dynamic individuals quickly. The Rayboy IS team saves me a bunch of time by pre qualifying and bringing forward “top notch” candidates.”

– Jay McGloin- District Manager – Hitachi Data Systems

“I wanted to thank you for your help over the past 8 years. During this time frame, your organization has helped me find outstanding candidates in the Federal Storage market. You have also helped me in my personal search, find an outstanding Senior Sales Management position that matched my qualifications. I would recommend your group to any of my colleagues in the high technology market.”

– Don Moran- Sr. Director, Federal Sales – Pillar Data

“Thanks for a job well done! By far this was the best group of candidates I had seen for a position of this kind, and you both were superior in coordinating with the candidates and with follow-up. We look forward to great things with our newly hired candidate, and are extremely pleased with how the entire process worked out. Please pat yourselves (and each other) on the back. This is the way industry gets things done!”

– Derek Rose- Federal District Manager – Quantum
