<div><strong>Here at Octagon, we don&rsquo;t have account managers or recruiters: We&rsquo;re all hybrids. We may be great with technology, but we do incredibly well around humans. We share information, which allows us to be a team instead of competitors. We can focus on matching people and companies instead of fulfilling quotas. Everyone plays a role. Everyone has a voice.</strong></div>
