Jimmy Downey


Prior Experience / Areas of Expertise:
In my previous life, I was a professional footballer playing at top tier clubs in Australia and the Netherlands. After a career-ending knee injury, I transitioned into the start-up world, where I discovered a newfound passion for technology. It became apparent to me that high achieving athletes and business professionals shared many common qualities, such as integrity, drive and accountability. My desire to continue working with and around high performers drew me to Emanate Technology and into the world of tech recruitment.

Why Work with Me:
I’m committed to exceeding both candidate and client expectations by applying a considered approach to identifying and aligning both parties’ core values and goals. My approach is honest, transparent and underpinned by a strong desire to achieve exceptional outcomes.

About Me / Something of Interest:
The travel bug bit me at a young age, and I’ve since been fortunate to visit over 50 countries. Even though choosing a favourite country is like choosing a favourite child, if I had to pick just one, it would be Spain. Granted, my Spanish could use some work, but I do at least have some of the more essential phrases down pat – Una cerveza por favor!
