Matching the best companies in the industry to the best tech talent: HIRECLOUT


Hiring the right candidate has always been the top priority as a company’s ability to find, attract, and ultimately recruit skilled talent is going to determine how successful the companies are in meeting their business growth objectives. With unemployment being close to zero in tech, finding the right candidate is more challenging than ever. Posting jobs and hoping the right candidate falls in your lap is not effective when you are looking to hire the best. The best are employed and buried in excellence and are not applying to jobs, nor are they posting their resumes on job boards.  That is where HIRECLOLUT comes in. Their ability to source, attract, interview, vet and deliver top notch candidates is unmatched. 

Founded in 2014 by Founders Jeffrey Mitchell and Avetis Antaplyan, HIRECLOUT works with early startups to Fortune 500 companies creating true staffing solutions. The company was incubated and spun off from The Mitchell Group which has been around since 1994 as a very successful, boutique firm. The co-founders of the company conceptualized the idea to start a company together, scale it, and become a much bigger player in the ever changing technological world.

The company recognizes itself predominantly as a premier Technology Executive Search and Consulting Firm. It recruits and hires the best technology executives in the industry for the most successful companies all over the Unites States with a focus in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York. It also offers consulting and staff augmentation services for companies who demand project-oriented staff.


HIRECLOUT has the key to creating sustainable technical staffing solutions: building long term relationships with their clients. Their skilled and passionate Tech Recruiters have one focus: connecting the best to the best.


HIRECLOUT helps in building its client-companies from scratch to the position of IPO. It has helped several companies scale up from 7-person start-ups to massive IPOs and acquisitions. The company has also been instrumental in changing the lives of its candidates by helping them find the right companies in which they can thrive. Many Software Engineers that they have placed went on to become Directors, VPs and CTOs, putting them in position to make a major impact on these companies and their families.
