Who we are and What we do

We are a team of clever, curious and slightly obsessed talent experts. We work for Startups & Scale-ups, mostly in-office, to help them find, attract and hire the best tech people in the world.

We are not traditional recruiters. As a team, we become the recruiting department for a startup. We run their recruiting processes and find new talent from within their offices. Isn't that cool?! We immerse ourselves in their culture, work with founders, investors, employees. This makes reaching out to candidates intimate, easy and personal. We are not just another headhunter, and the talent knows it.

Why we only work for Startups 🚀

We believe Startups and Scale-ups are great places to learn, to grow, have fun and to make an impact on the world. The speed with which they innovate and change demands a lot of their employees. On top of this, startups need talent that is particularly scarce and hard to find: growth hackers, developers, UI/UX designers, data scientists, SaaS specialists. As we help them find that talent, they have a fighting chance against the big guys.

What it’s like to be a magician at Levelup 🌟

As a Levelup employee, you will be a recruiter/ talent manager for a startup or scale-up. You will work with a growth mindset and experiment with different innovative methods to find talent. Besides that, you work with their brand and temporarily become part of their team. Doing this for 2-3 companies simultaneously supports the steepest learning curve and gives your work week a lot of variation. There's no way you'll learn more about startups anywhere else!

We work hard, and we celebrate failures too, because those are the moments we learn from the most. You will learn a lot from your fellow colleagues; and also have the chance to work on your personal development as well a participate in side projects. We’re all about growth and we share our experiences and knowledge to make sure we develop as individuals as well as a team. Attending meetups, expanding your network and testing our new tools are all part of daily life at LevelUp.
