The Sourcery has joined Gaingels as a trusted partner to help you hire the most qualified candidates from a diverse pipeline of underrepresented talent

Our commitment to helping you bridge the gap starting from your talent source

On-Demand Talent Acquisition Team

for all Software, Engineering, Sales, Marketing, and Operations roles you need for your startup

Maintain a healthy pipeline
of highly qualified candidates

Scale up hiring at the right time

Your early hires can make or break a startup. We help companies that have received funding, from Seed rounds to Series C, find the perfect fit for critical technical, operational, and leadership roles. We will partner with you to build a talent strategy that works even as the company doubles in size.

Often companies don’t have the time or resources to manage recruiting in-house or are tired of the contingency/traditional recruiting firms that offer a one size fits all approach that results in access to their limited database of candidates and high placement fees. 

We’re changing the way the recruiting industry works for the better. We help you create a lasting talent acquisition strategy by leaving you to focus on the most important, high-touch parts of the hiring process. We manage the rest.

With our model, there are no placement fees.
Unlinke other recruiting firms, we charge by the hour for our time. This is our most flexible pricing option, and we structure it as an at-will contract. Under this pricing arrangement, there is no upfront cost to get started. It also allows you to scale up or down as needed.

At The Sourcery alignment is key to all of our recruiting partnerships.  We make sure everyone is aligned on the details and the strategy for the role before we start the clock on any search. Below is a snapshot of how the process works from our Discovery & Strategy phase to when a hire is made.

We help clients find the best Engineering, Software, Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success talent.
We work on all types of roles that tech startups hire. We usually start off with younger companies focusing on engineering roles as these are often where they first feel a need for outside help with recruiting. We love the challenge of these hard to fill technical roles and can handle anything from a JavaScript Engineer to a Sr. Systems Engineer. We also work on design, product, marketing, sales, and hardware roles. Our clients love to give us hard to fill technical roles that no one specializes in. We’re happy to ramp up on these and find you the right candidate- trust the engineering recruiting experts. 

Focus on the most important, high-touch parts of the hiring process. We’ll manage the rest.
We are relentless about managing your inbound candidate flow and making sure everyone who gets in touch hears back from us. No more resumes sent into the ether without a response. Brand reputation is important, our goal is for every contact with your company to leave with a favorable impression. We work hard to produce a consistent pipeline of qualified candidates by augmenting inbound candidate flow with sourced passive candidates. Our mission is to bring you candidates every week that your team will love.

Are you a candidate and interested in learning more about the great opportunities
with companies who embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion?
