Services Overview

 

Overview

We provide recruiting services for startup companies.  Our client base is comprised of venture-backed startups with $0M – $400M in revenues.  We specialize in building out amazing management teams within Finance, Accounting, People/Talent, Sales, Marketing and Operations.  We focus solely on searches in the San Francisco Bay Area & Silicon Valley.

 
Service Offerings

We provide three search offerings to our clients:

  • Dedicated Search Management (CXO, VP, Director levels)

  • Source & Screen Services  (Manager, Associate levels)

  • Job Post & Screen Services (Manager, Associate levels)

 

Our Differentiation

We use a technology forward approach that leverages the plethora of data found on the internet.  We triangulate data from multiple sources, mine candidate data, and build unique target lists of 100 – 1000 candidates for each search that we take on.  Our approach involves deep data mining of information found on sites such as CrunchBase, LinkedIn, Twitter, TechCrunch, industry blogs, conference listings, publications, SEC filings, patents, and any nugget of information that Google search allows us to identify.

 

We leverage digital communications to quickly communicate to our target list and introduce potential candidates to our client’s opportunity.  We understand the response rates to each form of communication – e.g. LinkedIn InMail (initial 13% -- 34% response rate), personal email (additional 7% – 10% response rate), corporate email (additional 10% -- 12% response rate) – and we consistently receive an overall response rate of 30% -- 45% from our target list.

 

We build our communications with the intent that they will go viral – our viral approach expands the candidate pool by quickly leveraging referrals from our target list that result in a 3% – 5% increase in qualified candidates.

 

Once candidates are identified, we then turn back to the traditional means of recruiting potential candidates.  We talk to them live.  We get to know them.  We gain referrals.  We make more calls.  We present qualified individuals to our clients.  We work with both candidates and clients to make a match.  We are detailed oriented recruiters who are hands-on in every part of the search process.
