Welcome. We've been expecting you.


As a top executive search firm, we recruit board and senior executive talent for some of the most powerful and successful technology companies in the world. The top-performers. The game-changers. Women rock stars. Diverse board members. We search smarter. We give you more.  Candidates you never dreamed existed. Pricing you can trust. All the candidate research. In doing so, we outperform traditional executive search firms. That is why The Good Search is counted among the best technology executive search firms in the business.


What Is The Good Search?

Candidates You Never Dreamed Existed

We deliver top talent others miss by reaching far beyond the standard executive search firm networks. As technology recruiters, we’re  incredibly well-connected. We tap highly-placed sources and little-known databases. We harness the power of data and investigative research to make search smarter.

Pricing You Can Trust

Our simple flat fee banishes conflicts of interest. Pricing based on a percentage of candidate compensation rewards search firms that inflate the salaries of executives they place. You shouldn’t have to wonder about a search firm’s loyalty.

All the Research

The Good Search gives you more. We hand over all the candidate research — something traditional search firms never do.  Information is power. You can use it to make additional hires at no additional cost. Why settle for less?
