Pat’s strength is in assessing technical talent and sourcing them for us. We have hired a number of exceptional referrals and even started a company with one of his referrals. In short, I would recommend Pat to anyone who is trying to build a great team
Vinod Khosla Founder, Khosla Ventures January 1, 2014
I highly recommend the retained talent acquisition team at Terran Systems, specifically Pat Ross, Anita Sahagun, Megan Hanson and Tom Hanson. After I presented them with a job description, both written and verbal, for an urgent Chief Technology Officer opening, they presented ten very well-qualified candidates, where I interviewed four, before hiring an exceptionally qualified PhD Cloud/SaaS expert. From the date I engaged Terran Systems, to the offer being accepted, it took less than five months, and I’m thrilled with this software executive. I can’t recommend Pat and his team enough.
Ethan Anderson CEO, MyTime January 1, 2014
Terran Systems recently helped us locate and find 2 great Director level engineers (UI and Machine Learning). After listening carefully to what we were looking for, they methodically searched and presented us with fewer than 10 candidates over the following 1.5 months, before we selected two. We couldn’t be more satisfied with these results and we are happy to recommend Pat Ross, as well as everyone else at Terran Systems.
David Ehrlich CEO, Aktana January 1, 2014
Terran Systems has successfully placed an amazing 40% of our engineering organization, and 100% of their placements have been our topmost performers. They go to unparalleled lengths to learn about very advanced technologies to understand our needs and make uncommonly targeted recommendations. In fact, our mid-funnel conversions for their candidates are twice that of any other Recruiter we work with. What’s more, Terran Systems seem to genuinely care about the welfare of both their clients and candidates, and I know many candidates develop career-long relationships with them across several successful placements. Terran Systems is reliable, efficient, and always attentive to sudden changes in our needs or plans. Indeed, I have never worked with a Recruiter more diligent than them. I cannot recommend Terran Systems highly enough.
Carson Kahn CTO & Founder of Volley January 2, 2014
Terran Systems is one of the best in the business.
Jason Bross Founding Partner, Latitude20 Capital January 1, 2015
Lynx Software Technologies is a client of Terran Systems and we could not be more happy with the level of service we have received! Pat and His Team take the time to become true business partners and help you solve your staffing needs. They aren’t focused on a transaction, but rather helping you develop your organization with exceptional, high-performing talent. We are now proud to say that we have a couple Terran Systems candidates on our Team, delivering great results. Thank you, Pat & Terran Systems!
Keith Shea Chief Revenue Officer/GM, Lynx Software Technologies January 2, 2015
Every single person you placed is still working with us, including the SVP of Engineering. He was the first person you guys placed here when I started 3 1/2 years ago. I think the second one hired was the Computer Vision Engineer and that was no small feat. The rest are still happily employed.
Chantal Bumgarner VP HR, Magic Leap January 2, 2015
Hi Terran Systems, Thank you. By the way, (your Director of Engineering placement) is an awesome leader. He has made some good impact on (our company) already.
Q.Z. VP Engineering January 2, 2015
Patrick Ross is an excellent recruiter, the best I’ve ever worked with. I worked with Patrick and recommended him to several of my colleagues. Every time the results were excellent.
Ilya Stomakhin Engineering Manager at Broadcom January 2, 2015
Terran Systems has been providing me professional help by introducing me into a few critical opportunities that has turned my career into different gear. They are able to assess the company staffing strategy from executives to operation and especially to cater to my career developmental needs in order to make a perfect match. I am very impressed with their service as they don’t treat you as a paper resume, but treat you as a talent who can bring impact to the target company.
M.C. Head of Machine Learning (placed twice) January 2, 2015
Patrick has provided multiple introductions that have been a great fit. This contrasts quite a bit from many who attempt to provide random introductions that have no fit whatsoever. I highly recommend working with Pat for your Recruiting needs.
J.J., Ph.D. Chief VR Scientist January 3, 2015
The job opportunity you provided me, working as a senior hardware engineer was an excellent opportunity for me, Thanks.
R.B. Senior Hardware Engineer January 3, 2015
Great! Your Director of Hardware placement is really good, and expecting good things from your Senior Software Architect placement. Please keep finding candidates of this caliber. (…then 7 weeks later…) Dear Terran, Just wanted you to know that your Senior Software Architect placement is a solid, productive, and happy employee and is working out very well. You have done an excellent job finding us these top candidates.
N.F. Director of Software January 3, 2015
Terran Systems is the best search firm that I have worked with so far. They helped me secure me a job that perfectly matched my background and interest and boosted my career to the next level. I really appreciate their service.
Y.Y., Ph.D. Principal Software Engineer January 4, 2015
Patrick helped me find my first job when I just finished my Ph.D and at a time when the job market was really really bad. Patrick was recruiting a junior position for a startup which needed a very special skill set. He helped me pass my resume to the hiring manager. It was such a perfect match. It helped me grow tremendously. I would like to thank Patrick for finding such as a perfect position for me. It rarely happens in real life, but it does happen with a good recruiter and the best of luck.
X.Z., Ph.D. Member of Technical Staff January 5, 2015
Patrick Ross found me a career defining job with a very prestigious company I am very proud to have worked for along with very talented peers.
O.S. Senior Software Engineer January 6, 2015
You really helped me turn my career around. From feeling trapped at a big company that was getting more and more bureaucratic, you found me a position at an exciting stealth startup with huge upside potential!
B.S. Senior Software Engineer April 27, 2015
Everyone at Terran Systems did a great job in helping me find an exciting new position. Not only did they present me with several great choices, but they also helped me secure several offers. I highly recommend this professional, well-connected firm.
D.L. Senior Software Engineer April 27, 2015
Patrick is an excellent recruiter. He had helped me in getting my very first job right after my graduation during early 90s when US Economy was in recession and many companies were laying off. Since I was new to the market, I still remember the useful feedback he had given regarding my resume which had helped in getting my first interview.
Ram Hebbalalu Software Engineer April 27, 2015
This position was a great match for me. I am really happy with the services you provided.
R.T. Senior Software Engineer April 30, 2015
I really like it. Thank you for all your help.
V.S. Senior Java Developer April 30, 2015
Great find. He’s working out very well.
C.C. Human Resources Manager April 30, 2015
Megan is hands down the best recruiter I’ve ever been recruited by. When she contacted me she clearly knew what experience I actually had, what made me unique, and that I would fit well in the new role. At every step of the hiring process, Megan was there to make sure I succeeded. As a candidate, I literally cannot imagine a better experience with a recruiter. If Megan reaches out to recruit you, congratulations- you’re going to love your new role!
Trevor Buteau Product Manager August 16, 2023
You are one of the best recruiters I have ever worked with so far. I truly appreciate your support in this job searching process.
D.C. Principal Engineer June 27, 2015
In addition to helping me find a great job with Adobe, Patrick has done (and is doing) a great job keeping in touch with me over the following years. He is the first recruiter I contact when between jobs and the first I recommend to my friends when they are searching. Whether I am between jobs or not, I can rely on him for helpful information and advice.
K.B., Ph.D. Principal Software Engineer July 2, 2015
Terran Systems was instrumental in helping me take the next step in my career. I secured two terrific jobs working with the Terran Systems team. I also really appreciated the patience in working with the Terran staff to land the right opportunity vs. the first opportunity. The no-pressure environment created helped me find the right opportunities in both instances.
