We are Startup Specialized!
Early-stage to Mature; Founders, Talent Teams, Advisors
We have placed exceptional talent in high-growth companies in over a dozen sectors – Fintech, SaaS, Web3, Edtech, Healthtech, Gaming, eCommerce, Identity, Foodtech, Cloud, Media, D2C, Mobility and more.
Product to Partnerships. And everything in between.
We get to the heart of your business and our successful placements have been across all non-tech functions – Revenue, Sales, Marketing, HR, Product, CX, Design, Finance and Growth. Our hiring is highly role diverse, and we screen for the Startup Mindset to assess fitment.
Explore some of our recent roles.
Speed. Detail. Responsiveness
We love the madness and respect the method!
Our team focuses on specifics & logistics, so you can hire fast and the candidates don’t have to wait unduly either.
We make sense of ‘Fuzzy Logic’
Whether you share a great job description or one with sketchy (to no) details, we research and share meaningful context with candidates.
We do ALL the legwork. You save time and $$
Your runway to growth is critical, and our response time in recommending and connections is swift. On their own, most Startups take up to 6 months to land a key hire, which can be a costly choice in the long run.
We are better than DIY
The cost of reviewing resumes and interviewing candidates and recruitment advertising fees is substantial and adds up when you factor the timelines of the hiring process.
Networks & Relationships
Your business will be as strong as your team. And we take that to heart.
Our networks are extensive and diverse – we source multi-skilled candidates from niche communities, referrals and inbounds, and most importantly, passive candidates, we have access to the best professionals from the top tech companies.
We have the Reach
We place talent globally that works for your corner of the world. We are headquartered in the New York Area, with placements in USA, India, Canada, UAE, U.K & SE Asia.
Basically, we cover it all.
Yes, it starts with ‘is the candidate’s experience relevant?’ But it goes well beyond assessing skillsets. Are they ready for a bigger, more exciting role? Do the skills & mindset match; and importantly, is there more to them than the Resume and LinkedIn?
That’s where our expertise comes in…
–Pooja Krishna, Co-founder
