Austin Headhunters

Austin Executive Search

As Austin headhunters, The Good Search regularly serves Fortune 500 companies and venture-capital-backed startups in Austin, Texas. Whether e-commerce, Adtech, Edtech, Fintech, or Healthtech, we help companies find the leadership talent that they need to scale. Austin is home to the Silicon Hills, a group of technology companies in enterprise software, semiconductors, corporate R&D, biotechnology, the video game industry, and an array of innovative startups that are reinventing technology as we know it. 

With Oracle’s announced move to Austin, Texas, a growing number of Silicon Valley companies are choosing to make Austin their home.  In 2020, more than 35 companies had relocated to or opened new facilities in the Austin area, according to data from the Austin Chamber of Commerce.  Silicon Valley has been the technology industry epicenter since semiconductors were first invented.  However, that is changing due to skyrocketing housing costs, high tax rates, and strict regulations that make it challenging to live, work, and do business in the San Francisco Bay area. 

The Good Search is a leading technology executive search firm with decades of experience recruiting exceptional senior executives in Austin and beyond. Founded by an award-winning investigative TV journalist, our investigative research expertise allows us to find top talent others miss. That’s why our clients trust us to deliver executive talent they never dreamed existed. We serve a variety of companies, ranging from venture capital-backed startups to private equity portfolio companies to the Fortune 500.
