  • They genuinely learn what drives you

    Just the mention of Judy and Natasha makes me smile with fondness and delight. I’ve noticed that I’m not the only one that is so deeply impacted after getting to know these amazing recruiters. Judy and Natasha value relationships and genuinely learn what drives you, what you seek in a new opportunity, this is coupled with their tremendous experience with designers. Best of all, there’s heart and humor behind every genuine interaction they have with you. I can’t recommend this wonderful duo enough.

  • You'll find no better in Silicon Valley

    Judy Briones has been a great partner to me in building my various UX teams. At Citrix, she was instrumental in helping source top talent for everything from design to program management roles. Judy doesn’t just fill a position, she deeply understands the design and UX space, gets to know her clients and has an extensive network of talent to draw from. She works with you to find someone who not only has the right skillset, but also right the cultural fit. You’ll find no better in Silicon Valley than Judy and her team!

  • They help you get to a successful outcome

    There are few people out there who ask about the problems you are trying to solve before asking about the job title. That is the real differentiator that Judy and Natasha bring. They help you get to a successful outcome, and are not afraid to introduce you to alternative options that you had not thought of in order to guarantee your success. With a network like theirs, how can you go wrong?

  • Ensuring success, from startups to big enterprise

    Judy offers genuine talent-seeking guidance based upon in-depth understanding of your context — not just finding a “body” but sourcing the right fit based upon personality, culture, aptitudes, the whole gamut. I value the highly personalized & pragmatic approach that Judy takes to ensuring a team’s success, from startups to big enterprise firms. And she totally “gets” the needs of User Experience hiring — a rarity even today!

When Judy Briones founded Studio10SF, it was with one goal in mind, to put the heart and soul back into recruiting. Now, more than 3 years in, Natasha Kazatsker has joined the Silicon Valley consultancy as partner. Together, they connect clients to human capital with the right skillset and culture fit.
All humans respond to touch. The Studio10SF team emphasizes a high touch, human-centered approach for both candidates and clients – an approach missing in today’s metrics-driven recruiting environment. No AI will improve the staffing experience. (But, you’ve figured that out by now.) Only humans can identify and nurture creative talent, fill positions with people who thrive, and help clients meet business goals.
Collectively, Judy and Natasha have crafted exceptional teams for companies that have transformed the digital landscape, including eBay, Apple, Facebook, PayPal, and Atlassian. They’ve also partnered with start-ups and emerging brands in HealthTech, BioTech, FinTech, SaAS, and PSAaS. You can see the footprint of Studio10SF everywhere that humans work and play.

Natasha Kazatsker

Strategic Recruitment Partner

Natasha Kazatsker is leader of Strategic Recruitment at Studio10SF. An Austin transplant, Natasha landed in the Bay Area just as dot.com started to boom. Her first gig was placing digital talent for global advertising agencies. And Natasha has been helping creatives realize the value of their human capital ever since.

In her 15 years in recruiting at boutique agencies, Natasha has partnered with clients in e-commerce, enterprise technology, advertising, and non-profits. She has put together and managed talent for Apple, Facebook, PayPal, Sephora, Amazon, AKQA, Digitas, CBS Interactive, RGA, Publicis Groupe, and Tide Foundation. Natasha also played an integral role with Early Warning Services in building the product development team for Zelle and built the Kleeen.studio design and project management teams.

When you work with Natasha and Studio10SF, you get more than a recruiter. Equal parts matchmaker, therapist, and sometimes priest in the confession box, she knows your potential better than you do. Natasha reads between the lines, identifies transferable skills, then gets the conversation started – all while maintaining the integrity of your brand.
