Executive Search Specialties

We are technology headhunters whose executive search specialties are focused on the technologies we use every day to navigate the internet, to shop online, to leverage social media, and to harness the power of big data. We are headhunters who specialize in recruiting the best-of-the-best executive and technology talent in e-commerce, cloud computing, cybersecurity, software, data science, and AI.

We recruit board and senior-level executives to the portfolio companies of private equity and venture capital-backed companies whose technologies are changing how we live and work every day. In doing so, we deliver top data talent missed by other firms. We do it by searching smarter — by leveraging data and analytics in our own practice. We are a nerdy practice by design. We live to serve clients on the leading edge of technology — from white-hot startups to Fortune 100 academy companies.  That is also why we made “Good” our middle name. At The Good Search, we do it well.

Digital Executive Search

Data Science and AI Technology Headhunters

We are distinguished by our exclusive, niche focus in data executive search. We recruit data science and AI leaders because we are fascinated by what they do. (See our post Why you need a Chief Data Officer.) Everywhere we turn, we see data science leaders breathing life into The Next Big Thing. They are fast becoming the masters of invention at a growing number of client companies. They have shown us the future and it is magnificent to behold. That is why we are a data-driven executive search firm.

Technology is in our DNA.

As executive recruiters of top digital talent, we have lived it. The Good Search was founded by an award-winning television journalist and early adopter of computer assisted, data-driven investigative reporting. Our love of innovation and nerdy sensibility has made us experts in recruiting best-in-class technology leadership in advertising, digital media, online games, big data, e-commerce, and software. In fact, for more than a decade, we have served as a strategic recruitment partner to the office of the CTO of the most powerful and successful software company in the world.
