After winning the RDLC Rookie of the Year, being shortlisted for Most Inspiring Recruiter, and leading the launch of a US operation - it was time to found UMATR, a value-led and process-obsessed business to disrupt the industry, and most importantly put our team first, Because You Matter.

One man. One spare bedroom. A phone, a laptop. One huge mission, and six core values to live by!
UMATR IS LANCHED
Touched down in the 305! We got our US phone numbers and set up our US bank account, making it super easy to collaborate with our partners across the pond.
With no proving that a our value-led model works, it was time to step into Central London to scale further. We signed a lease on our 3rd office that was 3x the size of the last!
After having deep ties and foundations built from within the Scala community, it was time to dedicate an entire team to continue to support.
After out growing office after office, we took the leap by moving into our new home which has more than enough space for continued growth, and more importantly so much more room for actitives!
When founding, we pledged to donate a percentage of our turnover to causes that mattered the most to our team. We donated to Whitechapel Mission, Mybnk, and HUMEN.
As part of Women in Tech month, we launched a series of blogs. We talked to some of the most influential leaders, Scala Engineers, and recruiters to hear about their journeys.
Some say the most anticipated partnership since Brad & Angelina. UMATR becomes the exclusive recruitment partner to Ziverge, the creators of ZIO.
We became Student Sponsors for Lambda Days 2022, in Karkow, Poland. Providing 10 Students with the opportunity to attend who may not have been able to.

SPONSORED CLOUD NATIVE

From day one, it was important for us to give back and contribute. So what better place to start than in our home town, and within a thiriving community!
MARCH 21st 2021
As we said, we had a big mission, so we wasted no time and moved into our first office and added our first team members!
The community were really reasonating with our values, and thrilled with the results we were providing, so we started to grow quicker than expected. We sacrificed some natural sunlight for an office 3x the size.
11 months after founding we had exceed all expectations. Breaking our already ambitious target by 248%, and multiple individuals thriving and breaking their own individual records! We couldn't have done this without the support of our community!
