It’s Python’s time

to solve innovation’s biggest challenges.

As the rate of innovation increases, so too do the size of the challenges developers face. Python is up to the task: of harvesting and analyzing big data, of designing machine learning and natural language processing systems, of creating AI and neural networks.

Python can take you to space (NASA), organize the world’s information (Google), give you something to read (Reddit) or watch (YouTube), and maybe even measure the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow (African or European).

Our startups facing the biggest technical challenges are looking for developers who embrace the unknown, because doing something that’s never been done before makes for a full day’s work.

So if you dig python and want in, know that it won’t be easy, but that the experience and reward of building the future lasts forever.

Meet Joe


Joe Biggins

Python Chief
Connections Welcome

Back in 2005 from a small coffee shop in Concord, MA, I helped the Founders of Mirror learn the ins and outs of technical recruiting. After many years as an independent consultant in the recruiting and finance industry, I’m back at Mirror to build on what we started.

My mission and sole focus is connecting talented Python engineers with startups building world-class teams and products.

What I love about Mirror is our focus on aligning startups and developers versed in specific web technologies. For engineers, that helps us present only opportunities that are relevant to their skill sets and career goals. For startups, we only deliver developers for consideration that we would hire ourselves.

If you are looking for someone who knows software technology to help you find your next challenge; or you are looking for an experienced hand to help you create your team, I’d love to chat!

Recruiters tend to treat developers as a commodity; they're about packaging us for what best suits their ends rather than our needs. Brian shatters this mold. Not only is he well versed in the specifics of Rails that are important to both you and the companies looking for developers, but he's only after what suits everyone. When we first spoke, he asked me to give him a week, and before the week was out I was interviewing with half a dozen companies that met my exact requirements 1500 miles away from me. When the process came to fruition, it was a win/win for both myself and my current employer.'

I've worked with Mirror and Brian Mariani since 2007, I consider him an agent of grace and respectability - he has made a difference in my livelihood. I love Mirror for the courtesy and quality interactions that we've had - not to mention the smoothness and speed. I don't expect a guaranteed job with Mirror - but I know can rely on great service and an excellent round of opportunity.

My previous dealings with headhunters haven't been good. They're very pushy and don't care much about the candidates or even their clients. Just about all of them don't even bother reading your resume or they're illiterate. Having said that, I found someone who is just the opposite of other recruiters I've dealt with. Funny thing is, I wasn't even looking that aggressively. Brian Mariani of Mirror is a pleasant surprise in a field that is filled with scums. He actually read my resume, saw my websites, and took his time to discuss potential opportunities with both his clients and me. He also listened, a rare trait in modern day recruiters. I highly recommend Mirror if you're a Rubyhead/Railshead and want to venture out. You'll be pleasantly surprised. If you're interested in hiring a Rubyhead, contact Brian.

Mirror Placement helped me find an exciting job working with fun, smart people. Using other job sites was like trying to drink from a fire hose, but Mirror made the process easier by matching me with high-quality positions.

When people ask me about recruiters, Mirror Placement is the only one I'm happy to recommend. They actually understand technology, don't do the hard sell, and are in it for the long haul. A true cut above the rest.

Mirror helped me land a role at Pivotal in 2010, and I have since referred many of our growing startup clients to them. I wholeheartedly recommend them!
