Who we are

StartupCVs is a recruiting platform for startups. We are headquartered in Berlin and operating globally.

Equipped with leadership experience in both leading European startups and global corporations (eg. Google, BCG, Rocket Internet & HitFox), we are well aware of the every-day struggles of hiring top talent. Being responsible for hundreds of startup hires in the past, we have built a profound expertise in this area.

Our strengths turned into our mission - to facilitate the yet-so-inefficient recruiting process: A process which is key to startup success! It fills us with pride to see the positive feedback we receive on a daily basis from recruiters as well as candidates. We put a lot of brainpower, manpower, time and effort into StartupCVs to make sure we address both the right candidates as well as the right startups.
