Lilia partnered very closely with me to hire a number of senior execs (Sr Directors, VPs and GMs) at Box. She's extremely focused on outcomes and takes the "long view" in fostering and growing relationships with senior leaders who for the most part are generally "not looking". Due to this approach she builds trust and brings an impressive rolodex of product and engineering leadership talent. Lilia is also very tenacious and pragmatic in how she engages leadership internally - setting and holding every stakeholder to a high bar. She's confident and bold in her recommendations, even though they might not be popular, and hyper-focused on delivering best outcomes for the business, team, and company.

Lilia helped so much during the job offer phase into a new role at Trusted Health. She spent quality time with me discussing the company and the role, and answered questions that I had about transitioning into the tech industry and startup world. I had been treated poorly by other recruiters who pressured me and wanted me to make fast and uninformed decisions, and I felt so much relief to work with Lilia. She answered all my questions thoroughly and gave me reassurance. I'm truly grateful for the time she spent with me during a high stress time.

Clinical Operations Leader, Trusted Health

Lilia is a strong recruiting partner. She is empathetic, dependable, and organized. She is both a star recruiter herself and she is also able to build, organize, and efficiently run the entire talent acquisition team. Lilia is great at partnering with hiring leaders - especially the executive team - to understand the needs, organize the process, and find the best candidates. She builds strong relationships with the candidates, helping shepherd them through the hiring process. Because of her own technical background, she is especially effective in connecting with senior technologists. For those that pass the interviews she is very effective at closing and bringing them onboard. On top of it all, Lilia is a very nice person and a pleasure to work with!

VP of Engineering, Path

Lilia is by far the smartest and most effective tech recruiter I know in Silicon Valley. I have worked with Lilia at three companies over a span of nearly ten years. I would hire her again and again. I think what makes Lilia so much more effective than other recruiters (and I have worked with many) is that she is highly intelligent, has a strong technical background, and has been a software engineer herself. Lilia understands the discipline of engineering, the personalities it attracts, and what truly motivates engineers. She sees past keyword matches and the alphabet soup of the typical engineering resume to understand the arc of someone’s career and the kinds of technologies, products, and challenges that motivate them. When Lilia reaches out to prospects, they listen; she speaks their language, knows how to win their instant respect, knows how to pique their interest in an opportunity and how to close a hire. She is also able to wrap her head around the strategies and technologies of even highly technical, esoteric startups to understand their needs and to source great people. At the three companies where she and I have worked together, she has sourced great engineers to work in the areas of peer-to-peer, video compression, mesh networking, and applied cryptography. At Blockstream, I brought Lilia on as Head of Talent Acquisition, where she streamlined and organized the recruiting process for our globally distributed team and refreshed our company’s recruiting materials to message more strongly the company’s mission, ethos, and opportunity. One of Lilia’s strengths is her extensive professional network of clients and candidates in Silicon Valley, but Blockstream’s workforce is mostly remote. Lilia adapted and seized the opportunity to tap into a global talent pool to attract great people to the company at all levels, without requiring relocation. If you need to scale up your startup with top talent, you really cannot do better than Lilia. I would be happy to serve as a reference for her to anyone considering working with her would like to know more.

Engineering Manager, Google

Lilia is a truly learning recruiter. She is very thorough going through every line and word in the job description, and making sure she understands it and it makes sense to her. She won't stop until she has a really good picture of the position and the result is a very good stream of candidates and an extremely efficient recruiting process. I worked with many recruiters, and she is, hands down, the best one I worked with.
