The Kernel team goes beyond just shoving candidates to job openings, their help in negotiating stock options and incentive packages for executives was crucial for us scaling our company.


I’ve used the help from the Kernel team in the last 3 companies I have founded (including two exits). Their edge for acquiring top engineering talent in Latin America has allowed me to get started and scale up quicker than any of my competitors.
