      TESTIMONIALS

      What they say about us

      PowerUp Talent have been instrumental for us as we build our new studio in Barcelona and have made key hires both locally and internationally that have helped build the foundation of the studio. As well as Headhunting, their internal experience inside top gaming studios has been extremely valuable for us as we look to continue to improve our internal processes to help hire and retain the best staff in the market.

      Thank you PowerUp Talent!

      It has been a great experience meeting Carles and PowerUp Talent. They advised me throughout the process and I learned a lot from their experience in the gaming industry. In their hands, you don’t feel just like another number or candidate. I could not be happier that my profile caught their attention because today my professional career has grown and I definitely work on what I am passionate about. Thanks.

      At Social Point we are always looking for trustworthy partners that could help us fill difficult roles with amazing talent. What we have found in PowerUp Talent is so much more: consistency, honesty about the talent market and advice on how to remove some blockers in the search.

      Both Aurélie and Carles have been a great support in filling tricky roles, as well as caring about candidate experience as much as we do internally. PowerUp is not only a reliable partner but also a very pleasant one to work with – keep up the great work!
