Sales Staffing for Revenue Growth and Startup Success

We understand how critical it is to have a successful sales staffing strategy in place to recruit high-performing sales staff. 

Startups with strong sales teams are more likely to attract investors and secure funding, as investors look for companies with a solid sales strategy and the ability to generate revenue. 

According to a survey by CB Insights, lack of sales was the second most common reason for startup failure! That's why it's essential to have a well-planned sales staffing method from the start.

With many of a startup's launching customers being won by its founders, scaling up revenues from a growing set of customers can only be achieved by hiring a stellar sales team. Sales staffing is crucial to the success of this process.

We specialize in helping startup teams with sales recruitment through rapid headhunting of sales leaders, Account Executives, Business Developers, SDRs...

How Helps You

  • We headhunt and screen sales staff every day - Account Executives, Sales Managers, Business Developmen Managers, VPs and Heads of Sales, Chief Revenue Officers, CMOs...
  • Hire proven deal winners. We know exactly which screening questions to ask to figure out which candidates have actually been building a great book of business elsewhere. Evidence of a proven track sales record and consistently beating sales quotas is vital since startups have no time for salespeople to learn on the job!
  • Make critical hires quickly. Our mean average time-to-hire from kick-off call to accepted offer with sales staffing is 33 days.
  • Manage your costs closely. Our low fees from $4500 / €3900 per hire are fixed and help you stretch your runway further even as you grow. 
  • Hire passive candidates who do not apply to job ads. We pitch your startup and recruit fresh candidates every day that fit your startup culture, budget, and required skills - we only use our database of 100,000 startup-ready candidates as a backup


Hang on a moment! :) How is this so good and also so cheap?

  • We get this question a lot. Our secret is our unique business model (far different from a traditional % of salary model) plus the tech stack we have built to speed up our projects.
  • Our customers promise we're the only partner helping them fill each role we work on. We work undistracted with guaranteed results.
  • Filling every role we work on we have no wasted effort combined with low overheads allows us to deliver a full headhunting service on a bootstrapped budget.
  • We use the best tools in the world for sales staffing and the best headhunters in the world running our searches.


TL:DR - we're disruptors and we get sh*t done.

" 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!"

"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. "
