"Funded.club was absolutely an integral piece of our process to find-test-hire people for our company lately. This not only saved us quite literally multiple months of work in pre-screenings, but also efficient in finding candidates that we basically removed the need for a recruitment team altogether. this allowed us to focus resources on more critical things that every company should be doing, like building the product!"

"As an early stage, growing business, we need an executive recruiting partner that is both affordable and professional. The team at Funded.club was highly responsive and delivered on their promise of great candidates. I have now utilized them twice and plan on going back as we continue to staff up!"

"At Tesseract.io we are constantly looking for talents to join our ever-growing team. The Funded.Club team has helped tremendously in our hiring process. In addition to the responsiveness, they provide weekly summaries throughout the hiring progress. Candidates presented were pre-screened and of good quality. Candidates start streaming in very quickly after our kick-off meeting, usually within the same week. They've helped us with multiple technical positions that we previously struggled to fill. We will definitely use them for future hires. "

"We worked with Bulent and Funded.club to successfully recruit a Senior Software Engineer. Bulent advised us on the brief, provided valuable insights on salary ranges and then worked diligently to provide us with an excellent shortlist of candidates. Bulent is a great communicator and provided straightforward advice which helped us rapidly conclude our search confident we had the best candidate in the market for our brief."

Startup Recruiting Challenges

"As an entrepreneur, you have a gazillion things to worry about every day - from navigating these uncertain times to developing your product into a scaleable solution and nailing your perfect growth channels. You know that recruiting for your startup is critical to your success, but it’s also time-consuming and expensive.

You've placed ads on job boards only to receive many off-target applications. You may have also tried hiring through an agency and had to hide the bill from your investors. You feel your time and your hard-won money should be better spent... and you're right!
