What we do

and how we do it

We build startup teams...

When a startup raises funding, it’s great people they need next. And that’s where we come in - at LevelUp Ventures, we offer Embedded Recruiting and offer Sourcing-as-a-Service propositions to make recruiting easy and hassle free for our clients.

We become the recruiting department for a startup, running their recruiting processes and finding talent from within (we know, cool right). We work from the customer's office, immerse ourselves in their culture, work with management and even have our own email addresses there. This makes reaching out to candidates intimate, easy and personal. We are not just another headhunter, and the talent senses it.

We screen profiles, have an initial chat over the phone, we participate in face to face interviews. We can truly advise our customers, because we are objective and honest and we understand their business.

We help define employer brand and company culture. But most of all, we run an efficient, high-quality recruitment process that delivers the best talent from growth hackers to developers to team leaders: basically everything startup. And in the meanwhile, we help build a permanent recruiting organisation.

Our Mission

Our Mission

We believe that fast-growing tech companies are the best places  to innovate and have fun! Our mission is to help great people choose these places to work over an old world career.

LevelUp was founded out of frustration with agency recruiters. In this corrupted industry, we find their methods evil.

We come from the world of Startups, Venture Capital and Engineering. We know what you are dealing with because we went through it ourselves.We offer a personal and brutally honest alternative. We value transparency and respect.

We build startup teams. We turn startups into Hiring Machines

Our values: Integrity, transparency, results and fun.
