What We Do

Retained Executive Search in Technology

The Good Search is a technology executive search firm. We specialize in technology. You’ll find us wherever technology intersects with business. We offer technology recruiting at the senior executive level across multiple industries. We have expertise that you can’t find anywhere else. We outperform traditional retained executive search firms by making search smarter and giving you more.

Founded by an Emmy-award-winning investigative journalist, our robust investigative approach uncovers dream candidates you never knew existed. Our technology recruiters deliver the top performers, the game changers, and the visionaries. They’re a big reason why The Good Search is considered one of the leading technology executive search firms in the business.

Our investigative approach to Technology Executive Search makes us one of the top technology headhunters in the industry.

We’ve banished percentage-based fees and their inherent conflicts of interest. We’ve done away with the lack of transparency that leaves clients wondering what a search firm is doing for all that money.

In return, The Good Search is a technology recruiting firm that offers dream candidates, flat fees, and all the research. You can use it to make additional hires at no additional cost and to audit our work. Why settle for less?

3 Points of Difference

Dream Candidates

The Good Search delivers candidates you never dreamed existed because we search smarter. Our investigative approach to recruiting uncovers top talent others miss. We leverage highly-placed sources and little-known databases. We reach far beyond the standard retained search firm networks to access the best and brightest technologists and luminaries.

Pricing You Trust

Our flat fees eliminate conflicts of interest found in percentage-based executive search pricing. Though charging a percentage of first-year compensation is common in the search business, it bakes in a conflict of interest. Percentage-based fees reward consultants that inflate the salaries of the candidates that are hired. You shouldn’t have to wonder where a search firm’s loyalties lie.

All The Research

The Good Search searches smarter and gives you more. We hand over all our candidate research — something traditional retained search firms rarely, if ever, do. (Perhaps that’s because it’s the only way to audit their work.) We’re proud to show you what we’ve done on your behalf. You can use that research to make additional hires at no additional cost. Why settle for less?
