Jon Langton

tech recruitment person and associate director

I’m delighted to join techfolk having spent the last 10 years working in recruitment for big tech (Amazon and Microsoft) scaling engineering and AI/ML teams. I’ve helped grow Alexa, FireTV, Ring, Prime Air and Microsoft Research. Most recently the Microsoft AI4Science team, which is already having a hugely beneficial societal impact.

I have a passion for meeting new people and furthering their careers. In my 25+ years of recruiting I’ve helped companies from the smallest to (quite literally) the largest.

I love to spend time with my family and friends at gigs and festivals. I’m captivated by travel and technology. I’m also to be found on the badminton court and sometimes even doing yoga!

Specialisms: guiding and supporting software engineering, AI, ML, data science, startups, scaleups, senior leadership.
