Our clients describe us as ‘more than a headhunter’ – a partner who truly understands their business and market. We build deep relationships with startups we work with.


We fill roles across senior management, leadership and board-level. Across all key business functions. Only in digital tech – startup and scale-up.

Who we aren’t

Traditional Executive Search Firm

We don’t practice old-school legacy processes and only work to legacy fee structures. Our work is agile, flexible and efficient – in quality and speed. We’re focused on results, not process.


We operate a lean and sustainable business. That allows us to keep our egos small and fees competitive.


KeyHire has been built on relationships with our partners. Our relationships have longevity, trust and loyalty. We are ambassadors of our clients and embed ourselves in their business, ethos and brand.
