Hi, I'm Nate.

I am an MIT grad, engineer, and founder turned recruiter. I help startups hire the best talent and help people navigate their job search.


What I do.

I'm passionate about building relationships, working with integrity, and maximizing signal-to-noise.

I focus on engineering and product roles, from senior individual contributors to executives. I also have a fondness for sales team build-outs and finding great designers.

If you're considering making a move, I can help you get in the back door at desirable companies. Part career coach and part talent agent, I'm here to give you my perspective and answer your questions.

I get it.

Whether you’re looking to hire or make a move, I can relate.

I got my first programming job in 1990, graduated from MIT in ’97, and moved to the Bay Area in ’99. I have hired software engineers, designers, product managers, marketers, and sales execs. And I have worked with plenty of disappointing recruiters.

I'm interested.

I love learning about new tech, new businesses, and the people behind them. I want to know what defines you and what you need to succeed, so I can introduce you to the right people—for now and for the future.

Getting to know the candidates I work with is equally important. I want to understand where you’ve been and think through where you're going. I can help you make valuable new connections that will benefit you down the road.

I have the background to get it and the curiosity to care. It makes this job fun for me and it’s why I can be effective for you.
