Silicon Beach Talent

  • Brennan Boblett

    Stealth at Uber

    I have had the pleasure of working with Marissa in my professional career for 6+ years now across both Tesla Motors & Faraday Future. Over all these years Marissa consistently delivered on the tasks at hand, and it was quite amazing actually to see how much she could juggle at once. Simply put, Marissa thrives on challenges.

    No matter the enormity of the challenge, you can count on Marissa for solid results. Most importantly, I always found Marissa to be extremely approachable and was always a pleasure to work with. Her charismatic nature and positive energy would always brighten your day and leave you inspired.

    Additionaly, I always admired the way she worked with others. She truly cares about everyone she comes in contact with and will go to all ends to make them feel totally taken care of. Her dedication to her clients is exceptional and unlike I have experienced before. Marissa hands down is the perfect "hybrid" of HR and Recruiting and sets a new bar for how it should be done.

  • Elia Petridis

    CEO at Filmatics and Owner, Filmatics

    I can’t recommend Marissa enough, sincerely. She helped me make my first staff hire at Filmatics VR, took on the brave new world of virtual reality and its unique challenges and skillets in stride and performed beyond expectations. She is an amazing judge of character, bringing her experience to bare in order to configure the perfect hire for the company culture you’re building.

    She’s also very good at problem solving and staying positive, lucid, and goal oriented. She was invaluable in making sure we stuck to and achieved our objectives while working with her. Her disposition and joi de vivre only add brightness to her brilliance. We were lucky to have her and we’re looking forward to working with her further as the company grows.

  • Sarah Potts Ashton

    Public Affairs - Southern California at Uber

    As someone placed by Marissa, she was fantastic to work with. She was direct, efficient, and above all else, immediately able to see where my skill sets would be of value. She was a true professional. I have already recommend her services to others and will continue to do so in the future.

  • Stacy Morris

    Communications Consultant and Public Relations Freelancer

    I have worked with Marissa on both sides of the recruiting process and wholeheartedly recommend her. Her approach is about putting the right people in the right positions, which means that both sides are happy. She is positive, extremely charismatic and a pleasure to work with!

  • Henry Pope

    Senior Project Engineer at Mahindra & Mahindra

    Recruiters are those anonymous people, either on the phone or through emails, pitching and tempting a candidate for that magical opportunity that seldom turns out to be compatible.

    Max surprised me when he spent time to actually understand what made sense for me - not just to fill another slot and move on. Max didn’t work off of some job keyword checklist - he spent time understanding what these words meant, for me and the company. He genuinely cared about aligning me with a company and job environment that I could excel at.

    The fact that Max followed up 3 months after the new job, further demonstrates he’s a higher caliber recruiter than his peers. Do yourself a favor, take his call.

  • Richard Kim

    Head of Design at FF, Inc.

    Marissa and Silicon Beach Talent helped me recruit dozens of the best design and engineering talent from all over the world. She has a great network, works incredibly fast, and delivers results with long term relationships as first priority. Our collaboration has been flawless. I wholeheartedly recommend her company’s wide range of services.

  • Rick Haas

    President and COO - North Amercian Technical Center at Mahindra & Mahindra

    I’ve known Marissa for a number of years. We first met at Tesla, where she managed all of my recruiting needs, and I’ve come to count on her expertise in both recruiting as well as overall HR processes and policies. At Mahindra, when we needed to engage with an HR services company to work with us to grow our team, we reached out to Marissa at Silicon Beach Talent.

    Marissa and the team at Silicon Beach Talent have provided excellent service to the Mahindra North American Technical Center — timely responses, superior candidates, and good advice on managing our overall recruiting process. They operate with the highest level of integrity, are upfront and frank in their advice to us, which makes Silicon Beach our “go-to” choice for our recruiting needs…

  • Nick Dazé

    Principal UX Designer at Faraday Future

    Marissa is a stand-out in the field of recruiting. She is resourceful, positive, and passionate about the teams she’s recruiting for. She’s a fantastic communicator, and just a pleasure to interact with.

    What personally moved the needle for me as a client of hers was the amount of time and attention she spent with me, taking the time to learn about my background, my specific strengths as a designer, and placing me with a team that is a perfect fit for my career goals and intellectual interests. I could not be more pleased with my experience with Marissa and Silicon Beach Talent.

  • Sohel Merchant

    Sr. Director, Vehicle Engineering

    I have known Marissa for over 5 years. She has helped recruit top talent for me at Tesla and now at LeTV. She has the ability to really understand the job requirements as she has a strong understating of the development process and the development environment.

    Marissa has a great attitude and is a pleasure to work with. She is one you can count on to get things done in a timely manner as she understands that some things just can’t wait.

  • Ben Evans

    Marketing Specialist at Mahindra & Mahindra

    I am a testament to the incredible things Marissa Peretz and her agency Silicon Beach Talent are accomplishing. I contacted Marissa last June seeking a prominent marketing and communications role with a progressive, employee-friendly company. Within one week of contacting her, Marissa had arranged interviews for me with the Marketing VPs of two different automotive companies she knew of off-hand.

    After those interviews—both went well—if communication with either of my prospective employers was lagging Marissa would immediately reach out to them on behalf. Having Marissa and Silicon Beach Talent advocating for me really was like having a primetime sports agent. All I can say is that if you contact them: Be ready to work, soon.

    Just three weeks after contacting Marissa I was in an office doing what I love for a company I believe in. Marissa’s network is extensive and her willingness to work for her clients is unmatched in my experience. I still smile when I think of what she did for me. Marissa is the real deal.

  • Jamie Hamilton

    Vice President of Acoustic Engineering at Emerge, Inc.

    Marissa is a world-class recruiter and enormously talented at helping companies and organizations grow great teams. She is personable, kind, effective and greatly cares about the people she represents and works with.

  • Jose Wysogrod

    Chief Designer, Honda R&D Americas, Inc.

    Marissa and Silicon Beach Talent have been an amazing partner for us. I reached out to Marissa after meeting her during her tenure at Tesla Motors and was impressed by her approach, passion towards finding the perfect opportunities for people’s career goals, eye for design talent, and charisma.

    I brought Marissa/SBT on as a strategic partner and consultant and she has successfully recruited and built us a premium team for our business objectives. Marissa is truly unique in her abilities and I look forward to working with her and her team on many more projects in the future. I highly recommend Silicon Beach Talent, they will become an integral part of any business partnership.

  • Christoph Kuttner

    Director, interiors at Faraday Future

    I had the pleasure to work with Marissa at both Tesla and Faraday Future. Marissa is an extremely result driven recruiter with a lot of positive energy to fill open positions with the right talent within our teams.

    She combines professionalism, knowledge and insight, is always very approachable and has a great ‘yes-we-can’ attitude. She takes her time to get to know individual needs and is an extremely dedicated, hard worker. You can always reach her for staffing concerns. Marissa is well organized, super friendly and easy to deal with. Highly recommended! Thanks for all your help!
