who we are

At the heart of our business is the passion to elevate careers and connect our clients with the top tier talent they require in order to be at the forefront of their space. Our ethical approach to recruitment is what separates us from the pack. We value our candidates’ and clients’ needs above fees and deals. We’re here for the duration of your company or career. Our candidates love our clients, our clients love our candidates, and we love making the match.

High Quality Talent

Not just a resume throwing exercise. We take the time to truly understand our candidates to enable the right opportunities for them. Meeting with our candidates and building meaningful relationships is just what we do. Best interests and career search partnerships come as standard. Square peg round hole… We think you deserve more.

Trending Opportunities

We work with the top VC’s, incubators, and established startups. Disruptive, best in class products, and opportunities that aren’t always publicized keep our candidates ahead of the game.

Resume Support

We’re more than just master match makers. Our consultants are on board to guide you from the beginning of your search. Careers advice, 5 year plans and professional resume support are all just part of what we love to do. Let us help you.

our clients

While the companies we work with are at the forefront of the technology space, our approach is simple, it’s pairing you to an expert recruiting consultant who is knowledgable and able to deliver you the best candidates in the market. The ability to truly listen to your needs and consult on how to deliver the best in class is where we excel. We add value beyond the introduction of a candidate, and we aim to be high-touch, quality-driven, and an extension of your company.

“Tom is truly a hero. I can’t thank Tom enough for helping me find a dream job with a company of people and a product that I love. So excited about the way that my career changed path with his help.”

Daniel Johnson, Solution Consultant at Plutora

“TheCollective are phenomenal recruiters. They have worked with us to place 7 talented reps on our sales team. Unlike many recruiting firms, TheCollective does a great job of zeroing in on the types of candidates who are a great fit here at Heap instead of just spamming us with resumes. We hope to continue working with TheCollective for years to come as we grow out our sales team.”

Ravi Parikh, Founder at Heap
“Echoing previous statements, TheCollective is not your average recruitement agency. They allocate a significant amount of time to understand the type of role, company and culture their candidates are looking, to find the right company for the right person. I’ve worked with them for a year and a half, and they’re always looking for disruptive startups, with the sharpest minds in the industry. I would work with TheCollective again in a heartbeat.”
