Hello, we're Spring Search Group.

What We've Done
What We Do
Who We Are
We've been recruiting in the San Francisco Bay Area at the professional and executive level since 2002.
We have, combined, 38+ years of recruiting experience within the Bay Area startup scene.
We previously had "real" careers within Bay Area startups.
We provide recruiting services for startup companies. Our client base is comprised of venture-backed startups at the Seed, Series A and Series B stage.
We specialize in building out amazing teams within Finance, Accounting, People/Talent, Marketing, Sales and Operations.
We focus solely on searches in the San Francisco Bay Area & Silicon Valley.
We're entrepreneurial. We're experts. We're personable with people of many different backgrounds. We're direct communicators with a clear message.
We're a team of data enthusiasts -- we've been called data dorks in the past. We lead with data.
We're opinionated on the best coffee in town and we drink a lot of it. We've all been to Burning Man -- some of us 10+ times.
