We help clients build quick and efficient interview processes including technical interviews, building assessment centres, whiteboard exercises etc.
We’ve done a good job when you're quickly presented with 3-4 amazing candidates for each position.
We can manage the entire end-to-end process, organising interviews, gathering feedback and reporting.
We support the candidates through the process ensuring candidate experience is excellent regardless if the person is hired or not

If there is anything bocking you from getting that great hire, we will be up front and honest, even if the truth sometimes hurts.
We earn our fees by making your search for greatness feel effortless. We will keep you updated proactively and be there on an ad-hoc basis whenever you need us.
We work only with vision-driven companies, where a new hire isn’t just a number but one more piece of the puzzle.
Previously, I founded a tech company and grew it to 300 people and $40m in revenue. Now I want to help other ambitious founders do the same.
When I started that business, I didn't understand the importance of hiring great people. I made a lot of mistakes and ended up working a lot more than I needed to.
With a lot of research, support and trial & error, I built a hiring process based on hiring the top 1% of talent.
The business grew faster, my 30-person engineering team had a <5% annual churn and I finally got some spare time.
My last company wanted to build up an office in a new country. I took on the challenge, and two years later we had a multi-million dollar business, 120 employees, and the highest profitability in the company.
For short-term startup hiring projects, we charge a flat rate of 12% of each hire's first-year salary. This could be lower if the project is larger.
Berg Search has startup recruitment professionals with experience across functions.
We split our hiring teams into three practices
Your hiring team will therefore depend on the types of people that you hire
Berg Search believes in long-term relationships, great service, and fair pricing.
Berg Search works almost exclusively with growth companies. This is because the types of people who succeed in growth companies are very different from those who succeed in enterprise companies.
We believe in specialising our interview and assessment approach to those specific candidates.
