Golden Gate Recruits is a specialized recruiting firm that partners with innovative startups primarily based in San Francisco and New York.
We think of ourselves more as career counselors - an "agent" for the job seeker. We are here to help the individual think through what they want to do and how best to get there.
We have done PMOs at Bain. We have worked in BizOps at leading tech companies. It is this unique perspective that allows us to actually help the individual think through what they want to do in life and what types of companies might be a good fit.
More than anything, we just "care" ❤️ We started doing this because we wanted to help our friends find jobs.
And we continue to get our kicks from seeing someone get a job at a place that they are truly happy.

Phil graduated from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.
Nick joined Golden Gate Recruits as a Talent Partner after realizing how much he loved talking to people about their careers and helping them figure out what might be next.
Before joining GGR, Nick was a consultant at Bain, where he learned how cold the Chicago winters really are, and also did a stint at Peloton on the Consumer Insights team. Nick graduated from Stanford and when he’s not on the phone with awesome people, gets excited about Premier League soccer (Go Chelsea!), Formula 1 racing, and his budding love for tennis.
