Our talent is finding yours.

Elev8 was created to push the envelope in IT recruiting specifically for IT startups.

We have spent the past 10 years building and evolving the technology to curate and engage with technologists. We network heavily in the IT community, as evidenced by 40% of our candidates coming from peer recommendations. We also use technology, including AI, to search dozens of technical communities to find passive talent—those purple squirrel unicorns that are not actively looking for new roles.

We vet them using the Elev8 Talent Evaluator process, which looks at both skills and long term goals. Then, we match them to your job requirements and company culture.

So, when we submit you a candidate, it is very close to your ideal. We are not just trying to fit warm bodies into an open position—we aim to help candidates make the right career move for their long term goals. This means our candidates are happier in their new roles, and our clients love the talent we bring to their teams.

“The team at Elev8 was a huge part of my company’s success and growth. They hired more than 75% of our workforce helping us grow to more than 80 employees. They excelled in a variety of roles we handed them, including engineers, sales and operations teams and even hired two of our C-level executives. They helped find the talent as well as came in and helped direct our hiring and onboarding process to run more smoothly and efficiently. We couldn't have done it without the Elev8 team and will continue to work with them in the future for any hiring needs we may have.”
