Hello, there!

I offer different services for different target audiences.

For tech talents: I will work with you on your resume, “self-description” (written and spoken) and salary-negotiation or salary-raise strategy. I do individual and group consultations.
If you want to be introduced to great companies in the Zurich region, I can help as well.

For tech firms who are hiring: I can help you with technical assessments, advice on how to build your hiring funnel or where to find the tech talent that fits best to you. Also, you can leverage my network, if you need to hire quickly.

About me: I am Iwan (Email, TwitterLinkedin). I studied computer science at TU Munich, then worked as a software engineer for three years in Zurich. During that time I noticed that many firms in town struggle to find tech talent, so I started coderfit.com to help them. Here is what people say about me:

Superb
“Iwan was one of the best recruiters I have worked with. He does the basics extremely well. He communicates well, provided clear feedback on my CV, was able to provide access to a variety of potential employers in the Zurich area and also provides clear feedback on what my skill set was worth in the Zurich market. Would highly recommend contacting.”  2020-03-21 11:11:13 (via Linkedin)

Great experience
I’ve enjoyed the interview with Iwan very much. I really appreciated how the written and spoken interactions took place. It was nice being approached by someone with a great technical background. It will give you the sensation of being appreciated to the full length of your potential. Your persona will not be misrepresented towards a potential employer. Give him a chance and you will learn something new! – 2020-03-17 21:11:33 Senior Python Developer

Most awesome recruiter I have ever worked with
It’s rare that you come across a recruiter who actually cares about the candidate’s preferences. I had the pleasure of working with Iwan during my search for a tech job in Switzerland. I was particularly impressed by Iwan’s ability to get me a much better offer from an employer than the initial one. It’s almost like he was a personal coach for guaranteed success in the Swiss tech industry. Anyone, who wants to work in the Swiss tech industry, would be lucky to have Iwan as their recruiter. 2019-07-26 21:23:14 – Java developer

Above and beyond
We stayed in touch over the course of 5/6 months looking for opportunities in the iOS development industry in Zurich. Iwan took the liberty to search and contact different companies to assess their interest in expanding their teams, which I consider to be the differentiator when comparing to other recruiters I worked with. His dedication is commendable and anyone interested in moving to Switzerland should definitely get in touch with him, you will definitely witness the difference.2019-06-21 11:13:55 – iOS developer

Best recruiter I ever met
Iwan presented me companies and he tested me to check carefully if I am a good fit for the desired job position. Iwan is an amazing mentor that gave me very good tips about how to successfully present myself to a company that I am applying to. Thanks to him I am able to get better salaries in better jobs with better conditions. All is about showing our best values to the firms and Iwan was who taught me how to reach that. I like his kindness to help me when I had any difficulty. 2019-06-20 11:23:24 – Senior .NET developer

A rare positive surprise
Finally a recruiter that does excellent preparation before approaching possible candidates. I never talk to recruiters because they almost never really take their time upfront to know your skills and preferences. Iwan does exactly that. He is easy going and straight forward. He only asked the important questions and still delivered perfectly matching jobs straight from the beginning. Get surprised too, I would definitely recommend him! 2019-04-16 19:38:19 – Senior Javascript developer

It is rare to find recruiters who really care about your profile before suggesting you some job ad, Iwan is one of them.
I had the opportunity to be a good fit one of his clients and I was impressed how much this position was relevant and aligned with my knowledge and experience, he clearly took the time to understand what I was looking for before presenting me some options. Iwan is very direct and honest he also helped me with resources regarding salary negotiations which I am sure will be useful not only this time but for the rest of my career. – 2019-03-03 19:35:18 – Java Tech Lead

Great
Unlike other recruiters, Iwan helped me navigate several interview processes and advised me also on employers that weren’t clients of him. With his help I got an A+ offer in a company that I really like. Iwan trained me on salary negotiation which gave me the confidence to ask (and get!) more fixed salary. If you’re a jobseeker in IT, I highly recommend working with Iwan to land your next job. -2019-01-28 14:13:44 Senior Python developer
