Hiring for startups is tough

  • Job ads bring a lot of noise.
  • Traditional recruitment agencies charge massive fees for mixed results.
  • Building an in-house recruiting team is expensive for Seed and Series-A startups.
  • Founding teams are busy building great products, winning customers and meeting their milestones - there's no time left over for headhunting or networking to find great talent.
  • Yet... everyone agrees its people that will make the difference between success and failure.

" was absolutely an integral piece of our process to find-test-hire people for our company lately. This not only saved us quite literally munltiple 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!"


Jiří Třečák

"At 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. "

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."
