We set leaders free to build scaleups that last

We recruit the people you need today, and build the hiring machine you want tomorrow.

The growth of a company depends
on the people who bring it to life

Why is it so hard to hire great teams and leaders in an era where everybody
can be found online?

Executives, SaaS Specialists, Developers… They are in high demand and great talent is scarce. 
That makes sense: many of the roles you are hiring for today did not exist 15 years ago.

Many recruitment teams are swamped with work and battling to meet hiring deadlines. Sometimes they are simply understaffed, sometimes they could use
an interim recruiter specialised in tech or executive search.

Our recruiting team is flexible and scales with your recruiting needs. We provide a specialist for each vacancy. Their data and context enable you to make great hiring decisions. Where we can, we will unburden you. To set you free to build the scale-up that lasts. 

What we do

We know tech, startups & scaleups. Because we are in it, every day. We speak the right language to reach people who talk differently. And reach out to talent with the story that sets you apart. 

And yes… we’ll deliver you any bad news as soon as we know it. We’ll teach you where and how to find, engage and select better. And show you what works and what doesn’t. We help you hire the people that bring your scaleup to life, so you are free to build a company that lasts.

Executive Search

The right leadership team is key to bring your scaleup to its scale. This is a delicate fit, and requires a partner who understands your business and culture. As a boutique executive search firm, we leverage our ecosystem network and expertise to find the right addition to your leadership team.

Talent Search

Whether you are leveling up your team or looking to reduce your dependency on recruiting agencies, give us your hard-to-fill vacancies and we will hire your next tech team members. From Product Engineering, Saas Specialists to Digital Marketing, our interim tech recruiters find the people that do not want to be found. Suitable for two to five tech vacancies, we work your recruiting process, so you can focus on your work.

Embedded Recruiting

Scaling up requires an agile approach to talent and a partner that can grow with your needs. Embedded recruiting is based on a long-term collaboration, where you can outsource your entire hiring plan to us and build your next tech teams. Suitable for more than five tech roles, you always get the right specialists, so you are free to build the scale-up that lasts.
