Specialists. Not generalists.

With expertise in Sales & Marketing, Leadership & Executive, Software Development & Engineering and Product & Project roles, we help SaaS companies hire on a permanent or contract basis. We’ve built four specialist practices to help SaaS companies be really precise in hiring. We’re specialist not generalist.

About us


Our mission is to be the best SaaS recruiter in the world. We want to work with the best clients. We want to work with the best candidates. We want to work with the best recruiters. We want to do what we say we will do.


Ingenio was five years old in 2019. When we started the business our goal was survival. Now it’s growth. We want to grow our business to become the best SaaS recruiter in the world.


Working with people can sometimes be challenging. But mostly it’s amazing! Ingenio is a business that is honest, direct, open-minded, trusting and inclusive. Oh, and we’re fun!

Our Story

Rob and James spent fifteen years running technology businesses before founding Ingenio in 2015.

SaaS organisations talk about the three core pillars of success being centered on product, people and process. Ingenio exists to help you with people.

During their respective times at Touchbase, Datapoint, Cisco, Sabio and Capstone, James and Rob have both seen positive outcomes when exceptional people come together for the benefit of a client. It’s this first-hand experience of working with highly capable professionals that have ultimately driven the creation of Ingenio – a business dedicated to providing the most talented people for its clients.

Our Founders

Rob Magee

I try to live in a world where I work with people who do the stuff that they say they’re going to do!

I come to work every morning hugely excited by the opportunity to help our clients transform their businesses by bringing in exceptional people, and by helping brilliant people achieve their personal dreams by working with the best businesses. I genuinely think it can be that easy.

When I’m not at work, I’m a massive rugby and horse racing fan, an average skier and the best Sunday roast chef going!

I actually started my career in a technology engineering role! This helped me have an appreciation that led me to a successful career in sales. It’s now really clear to me that my career would not have happened had it not been for the advice, guidance, and mentorship of some truly exceptional people along the way. And it is this theme that is the motivating factor behind the set-up of Ingenio: a business named from a variation to the Latin word for ‘talent.’ We know that exceptional people are the difference between a business being good versus being outstanding and it is our job to have trusted relationships with talented people for the benefit of our clients.

I’m Arsenal’s number one fan, and that is probably enough said!
