Where Most Leaders Struggle When Hiring

Time & Resource Intensive

Successful recruiting demands immense time and resources. Every hour spent attracting talent is an hour not spent on developing strategies, leading the team, innovating, managing risks, or other critical tasks.

Reactive Hiring Strategies

Reactive strategies like job ads limits the talent pool. This results in missing passive high-quality candidates and prolonging the time-to-hire. It triggers intense competition for the same candidates and unpredictable applications, raising the risk of skill and culture mismatches.

Deficient Outbound Execution

Outbound search, when done incorrectly, can lead to numerous problems that will hamper your hiring efficiency. This can damage your companies reputation, increase hiring risk, create employee dissatisfaction and result in higher turnover.

Making a Mis-Hire

A mis-hire wreaks havoc on an organization by disrupting team dynamics and lowering morale. The financial toll includes wasted salary, onboarding, training, and severance costs. With productivity and innovation compromised, existing team members face added stress and burnout.

Lack of Expertise

Partnering with recruiters who lack a relevant network and domain expertise can lead to a mismatch of candidate skills with job requirements and prolong the hiring process. Such recruiters will tarnish your employer brand by misrepresenting your unique needs and overlooking cultural fit.


It's common for hiring leaders to face challenges with confidentiality. The risks include exposure of company secrets, mishandling of candidate data, and internal discontent due to leaked hiring plans. These issues can disturb the work environment, weaken market positioning, and result in legal/financial repercussions.

Don't Take Our Word For It

What Hiring Leaders Say

Your approach is different than other agencies

"We had one week where we talked through the role, went through the description, you met with the teams, and three weeks later, we had a final candidate that we were looking to put out an offer to. So all in, it was like a four week close"

Prattima Dhanraj

Head of Human Resources
The quality of the candidates that he attracts or has pipeline and network with is key

“We were staffing a team in parallel, planning the product, designing the product, building the products in, if I may, bleeding edge technology at the time. Austin was calm, composed, and speaking to him, it was like, hey, this is gonna get done! That’s the kind of confidence Austin inspires in my team."

Andy Deshpande

Director of Data Strategy
It saved a lot of time over what we had tried earlier

"I've been just really excited about the results and how they fit well in with JP and with the team. You know, as we brought them in over bascially one month, three months, and six months, they all fit right in and have just built the team well."

Eric Kruegle


JP Spiro

Director of Product Development
It freed me up to do the things that are important to me in making the business successful

"We took our time and we let Austin do the searching, the vetting and it just worked out really well where we established a trusting relationship and we were able to go on his recommendation and it's been very successful"

Bill Bavagnoli

Instrumental in helping me build a team

"Program managers, project managers, business analysts, developers, the full gambit of what an IT professional would need.”

"Your background is one that you could understand what a good PM is, what a good BA is, how you vet out good developers."

Tom Yacavone

VP Global Program Manager
You were screening these candidates ahead of time

"You provided a really rigorous process for us to ensure that the candidates that were coming in were of the quality we were looking for and it ended up being the case in the long run."

Nelson Pereira

VP Software Engineering


You Have Questions?

We Have Answers!

How do you find the right candidates for us?

We utilize the most effective tech stack combined with our comprehensive approach to identify the best candidates for your specific needs. This includes a full market mapping, tapping into our deep referral network, and leveraging sophisticated omni-channel outreach campaigns to engage with both active and passive candidates. Our team conducts thorough technical and functional screening to ensure you only interview the best of the best.

What makes your search firm different from others?

Our agency is committed to providing a personalized, transparent, and results-driven experience for our clients. We offer full accountability, consistent communication, and a guarantee on your new hire for up to a year. The candidates we present to you have also been pre-vetted both functionally and technically and we can conduct reference checks before an offer is made. We focus on delivering long-term solutions, not just quick fixes, and work with you until the role is filled with the right candidate.

How long does the search process typically take?

Our goal is to meet your hiring needs as soon as possible. Conservatively we can accomplish this within 75 days. However, the exact timeline may vary depending on the complexity of the role, the depth of the candidate pool, and the specific requirements of your company and your reputation in the marketplace. We keep you informed every step of the way and continuously refine our strategies to ensure a successful outcome.

What is the time investment? How involved do I need to be in the process?

We make the search process as efficient and stress-free as possible for you. While your involvement is crucial in defining the role and making the final hiring decision, we handle the bulk of the process. This includes candidate research, writing copy, executing and managing omnichannel outreach campaigns, candidate screening, coordination of the interview process, offer process, and onboarding process. We also provide regular updates and are always available to discuss progress and address any concerns you may have.

We have an internal HR/TA team. Why should we work with you?

An internal HR/TA team is definitely valuable, however, the search process can be time-consuming and may detract from their other responsibilities. We are experts in outbound search, and market to the passive talent pool. Our extensive network and proven methodology can supplement the efforts of your HR/TA team, as we work in collaboration with them to enhance your hiring outcomes.
