Executive Recruitment Consultant
Armed with a Bachelors in Sociology and a Masters in International Business, Nivedita Lobo Gajiwala took the plunge into Canada’s winter and exploding tech industry. With a background in digital marketing at an agency in India and a Fortune 500 company in Amsterdam, Niv is excited about bringing her dual perspective to the team.
Niv’s strength is in her ability to connect with her candidates and clients. She finds joy in discovering the thing that makes clients and candidates unique and genuinely finds those aspects fascinating. Niv sees her work as a blend of her two favourite things – storytelling and psychology.
Niv decided to make the leap over to Canada – first Waterloo, and now Toronto – because someone (Kristina) once told her to do the thing that makes her uncomfortable, that’s where the magic happens.
From all the different countries she’s lived in she loves Canada the most because of the emphasis on diversity, deep rooted values, and the shared sense of understanding that comes from having an identity that is both Canadian and something else. The Canadian tech community filters this empathy and mindset into its culture and that inspired Niv to launch our Humans of Tech project.
