Rob Mallery

Head of Origination at Originate


A broad background in technology, recruiting and business development has allowed me to see first-hand what works and what doesn't when it comes to success, especially in a start-up environment. My most immediate task is to make sure Originate is always hiring great engineers with the right mix of engineering know-how and entrepreneurial spirit.

My Goal is to make "Originate" synonymous with the word "Start-up".

Work History

Aug 2004 Oct 2008
Lassen Group Founder

I was a founding partner and day to day operations / sales manager for Lassen while also being the top biller for the office. We performed F/T perm technical placement services for companies in Orange County and Los Angeles needing to hire the best software engineers.

Primary areas of expertise were Software and Web Development (.NET, Java, C++, PHP, Ruby on Rails).

I hired and trained all staff (primarily entry-level college graduates) and grew office revenue to over $1.5 million/year with nearly 50% profit margin.
