Meet Your Recruiter

Asher Hoffman

Asher was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina, and after spending his first year’s post-grad leading the recruiting efforts for a social media start-up, he realized his passion for connecting people with their “forever” jobs. He moved to Los Angeles in 2016 and enjoyed a brief Covid-inspired hiatus in Austin, TX (#SiliconHills). Realizing his heart belonged on the West Coast, he returned to Santa Monica in 2021 and enjoys living blocks away from the beach. When not recruiting, you can find him hiking Tuna Canyon, hanging out at Dockweiler Beach, or wine tasting in Santa Barbara with his girlfriend, Cameron, and Chihuahua mix, Everett. Asher’s a huge fan of Tim Ferris and Tony Robbins, and models much of his life after both. He lives by Tony’s quote, “Trade your expectations for appreciation and your whole world changes in an instant.”

With over a decade of Technology Recruiting experience, Asher can’t imagine doing anything else and is ready to place you in the role of your dreams.
