Executive Search and Recruiting in today’s tech talent market requires a personalized touch. Each person a growing company hires, whether it is a startup or unicorn, is vital to the organization. Successful placements are about so much more than merely technical alignment; it’s about real fit. Highly sought after candidates need to know that they are making the best career decision possible, that they will be engaged in their work and be able to grow as professionals. Companies need to find people who can achieve the task at hand, and will be able to adapt to meet tomorrow’s challenges, while remaining cognizant of business and budget concerns.
