We’re One of the Top Technology Executive Search Firms for a Reason



Candidate You Never Dreamed Existed

We deliver candidates you never dreamed existed because we search smarter. We power every executive search engagement with actionable intelligence. We tap 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. We use computer-assisted research, data analytics, and investigative research. We innovate next-generation executive search methodology. That’s how The Good Search consistently delivers best-of-the-best talent others miss. That’s what’s made us one of the top technology executive search firms in the business.

Pricing You Can Trust

Our flat-fees eliminate conflicts of interest found in percentage-based retainers. Though an industry standard, search firm pricing tied to a percentage of salary creates a conflict of interest. Percentage-based fees reward consultants that inflate the compensation of the candidates that are hired. You shouldn’t have to wonder where a search firm’s loyalties lie. Moreover, percentage retainers make it impossible to know exactly what a search will cost. That is why we work by simple flat fee based on the difficulty and requirements of each search engagement.  Unlike standard percentage fees, our pricing is tied directly to the work that we do.

All the Research

The Good Search believes in giving you more for your money. Case in point: we hand over the candidate research — something traditional retained search firms never do. In doing so, we eliminate the retained search black box that leaves clients guessing what a search firm is doing for all that money. In its place, we provide an executive search experience with unprecedented transparency and due diligence. The research facilitates greater trust and collaboration. It also serves as a comprehensive audit trail for every search engagement. You can even use the research to make additional hires at no additional cost. Why settle for less?
