Who We Are

HOW – AND WHY – IT ALL BEGAN.

StartupTAP was founded on the realization that high-growth companies need effective solutions for talent acquisition that are outside the scope of most traditional recruiting agencies.

In 2010, our founders embedded themselves in some of the fastest-growing startups in Southern California, hired 180+ people over 18 months, and most importantly, formed long-lasting relationships with both the candidates they placed and the companies they built.

This hands-on, relationship-driven approach continues to be the founding principle behind the work we do. We partner with companies ranging from venture-backed startups to multi-billion-dollar public enterprises, and we collaborate with each client – and candidate – to provide a bespoke managed recruitment solution.

Today, StartupTAP continues to be a trusted Talent Acquisition Partner for growth companies. Our philosophy doesn’t just apply to hiring. We firmly believe:

Recruiting must be tied to the broader strategic vision for any business.

Running great processes is critical to attracting and retaining great talent.

We enable our clients to do their best work by developing teams that last. Combining in-depth research and a business-focused approach with a knack for storytelling, we tackle every engagement with the same unwavering dedication to excellence we’ve held since our inception.

Ideas have no value without the driving forces that make them real. We believe great companies can change lives, and we believe in the people that power those companies.
