🚀 How We Started

We were frustrated by recruitment agencies' inconsistent, slow, and - way too often - dishonest, overly expensive approach. Sending irrelevant profiles and hoping for the best. To all agencies out there: “Network” isn't a differentiating factor anymore - start to innovate!!

Three years later, what sets us apart is:

  • Speed through automation (shortlist of three within 7 days, end-to-end of 15 days)
  • Recruiting through storytelling (our secret sauce)
  • Delivering valuable CX and data-driven experiences (it’s about people and relationships)

Our teams in Australia, the US, the UK, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Thailand focus on startup recruitment with our clients being market leaders in their area.


Head Office: Sydney

With people in: Sydney, Colombo, Bangkok, Johannesburg, New York, Phoenix, Dallas, London and Austin

Why this role? Why now?

We attract higher quality talent, 50% faster through automation and storytelling vs traditional recruitment agencies and we need more hands-on deck.

Did you know:

  • Robert Half's research has found that a whopping 62% of job seekers lose interest in a job if the hiring process is lengthy. That number rises to 77% if there is no status update within three weeks.
  • 69% of the Employers report having difficulty in filling a role and put it down to Talent shortage (Source: TalentLyft).
  • According to LinkedIn, only 30% of companies are able to fill a vacant role within 30 days. The other 70% of companies take anywhere between 1 - 4 months to process a new hire.

Our Company Values:

Be the OG - Being original often means doing things differently; it always means taking pride in our own evolution of doing right by our candidates, clients and colleagues.

Get To The Heart of It - We don’t scratch on the surface, we dive right in: getting to know a hiring manager or talent, we go after the key aspects of what will make them happy. As a team we do the same in how we collaborate.

Stick with It - We stick with it. We see it through. Together, we always find a way.

Give First - Whether it’s our clients, candidates or internally: we come from a place without ego and we always provide value to you first.

Always Go To School - In any interaction or situation there is always something for us to learn: we seek out the learning in anything and actively take those lessons as input to how we can be better.

Walk Towards the Fire - If we’re facing a challenge, we step up and we face it together. Our growth is rooted in a belief that opportunities appear on our path for a reason and that is to step up.

Fill The Cup - Our work fills our cups, as opposed to draining them; so we spend our time ensuring our candidates are matched with roles that fill their cup, too, and clients find the hiring process energizing.

Meet Denis, Co-Founder, Director of Partnerships

Hi there, I grew up in Germany and lived pretty much all over the world for the past 10 or so years. But Australia is my home now. I am passionate about two things in my life right: growing our business to a global powerhouse and my Cavoodle-puppy 'Pancake'. Though I am starting to fall in love with rock climbing, too, which goes hand in hand with another hobby of mine: camping. I am known for being extremely direct: no filter. Ever. And I respect people who're not afraid of bringing up ideas (no matter how crazy), raising concerns and who offer solutions.
