We Are Spreading Our Wings Out West


We’ve had a busy couple of years at Hirewell. In case you haven’t been paying attention – here’s a recap:

The growth has been exciting. But it has been a challenge. Navigating it all through a slowing economy has only added to the challenge.

Late last year, I promised our team that we’d slow down on the deal front and focus on integrating all of the deals of the past 18 months.

But then I met Tom. He was an advisor for Rainmakers. The team there spoke highly of him. His firm had a phenomenal reputation for partnering with high-growth tech companies and helping them scale their Go-to-market teams. He specialized in VC/PE-backed firms on the West Coast. It’s an area that we’ve dabbled in and wanted to expand.

We got to know each other over 10+ months. Our teams partnered on a few engagements. It was a perfect match. We had wanted to expand our West Coast presence. He wanted the opportunity to help his clients in additional areas (OnDemand Recruiting, Tech Hiring, HR/F&A hiring, etc.).  

After 10 months of dating, we made it official earlier this week! We, Hirewell, acquired The Collective Search (Known as ‘The Collective’ in Silicon Valley) expanding our presence on the West Coast. 

For the last 8 years, The Collective’s focus has been scaling GTM teams for PE and VC-backed tech startups in San Francisco and throughout the West Coast. Through them, we’re furthering our specialization and expertise in serving tech startups while being able to offer our new clients on the West Coast our full suite of talent solutions across technology, marketing, sales, HR/TA, supply chain, finance, accounting, and more. 

If you’re in the Bay area, run a startup, and don’t know Tom. I’d change that soon. We are starting something really special for founders and VCs in that area. IYKYK.
