About Zachary

Building Incredible Futures in Austin​

In 2015, Austin Fraser expanded their borders and I was brought on to establish the first American office here in Austin, TX.  As the fifth US hire, we hit the ground running with the aim of differentiating ourselves in a market that was crowded, murky and confusing. 

Our strategy is to embed ourselves into our local communities and cultivate an inner circle of top tier talent. Through our locality, market specialization and ability to offer a premium service on an expedited time schedule, we quickly began to prove our value to both hiring managers and job seekers. 

Today, we are honored to represent over 175 of Austin’s premier and most competitive technology employers. We’ve saved our partners plenty of time, money and headache… not to mention built some pretty incredible projects along the way!

Recruitment in Austin is competitive. While it’s less than 2% of your job, it’s 100% of ours. 

Please reach out and connect! I am always excited to network with local technology thought leaders and development and engineering experts… especially if it involves cold-brew.

Working with Zachary

​Austin Fraser has created an amazing hiring funnel for us, supplying us with an excellent stream of candidates from which to draw. Their knowledge of our industry has enabled them to choose the right people with the best skill sets. The best part of working with Austin Fraser though is their attentiveness and professionalism – they have really become part of our team and part of hiring process. They’re the first resource we go to and often the only one.

Quality Manager

Bypass POS

​Zachary has been instrumental in our staffing needs at Track5Media. His pleasant demeanor coupled with his flawless execution has made our first phone call when staffing needs arise. He knows the space well and understands our business and company culture. The candidates we have received from him have been leaps and bounds above candidates sent from other recruiting firms.



​Austin Fraser is my favorite recruiter by far! They have a vast professional network, and make my job easier by delivering us great candidates. They always listen and understand the needs of our team.

Senior Manager

Whole Foods Market

​I highly recommend Zachary Tickle at Austin Fraser. I am the recruitment coordinator at a technology company and I work with several recruiters on a daily basis. Zachary is by far my favorite recruiter. He is very responsive, genuine and customer service oriented. He is patient and adaptable through changes we make to the positions and the interview process. Zachary helps drive the interview process without being too pushy. He submits qualified candidates and is very knowledgeable in the scope of each role he is assigned. He works hard to get the perfect fit into the right position.  One of our hiring managers dismissed a candidate as not a good fit, Zachary convinced the hiring manager to have a phone screen and the candidate ended up hired as a Manager. Zachary knows what he’s talking about and always has a great attitude!

He was always upfront and professional with me, and he worked hard to get me an interview which led to a job. Where others over-promise, Zachary delivers.
