Why choose Hired By Startups

We love hiring for startups, it's all we do.

We treat each search with the same degree of respect and professionalism, whether we're working with a solo Founder on their first hire, or hiring AE's for a Series B scale-up.

We believe it takes a very specific type of person to thrive in the often chaotic and unstructured working environment that you'll find in most startups.

By only working with early stage, high growth companies for the last 7 years, we've come to identify the personality traits that make someone well suited to startup life, as well as being excellent in their role as a sales professional.

If you're a startup, hiring sales talent, get in touch.

"Working with Tom to find two specialised outbound sales experts was great.

Right from our first call, he understood exactly what we needed and hit the ground running.

We had been searching on our own for months with no luck, but Tom quickly filled our pipeline with good candidates.

Thanks to him, we filled both positions. We'd happily team up with Tom again!"
