Listen. Recruit. Build. Partnering with HSF

HSF has over 15-year track record of helping some of the fastest growing and dynamic startups across the US hire technical talent and leadership. We help our clients streamline the hiring process, and build qualified, talented and motivated teams.

Quality over Quantity

Quality over quantity

That’s our motto and our practice. We recruit A-players for tech startups, tirelessly sifting through the market. We source, contact, pre-screen both technical and soft skills, and present your opportunity to the best talent available. The result: a pre-qualified candidate who aligns with your culture, and understands your value proposition.

Compelling Story

We will work with your team to discover your story, to show potential talent that you can offer them opportunities for growth, that you are their best partner in potential success.

Compelling story


The Bay market is one of the most competitive globally for talent, and an unusually long or poorly defined interview process significantly increases the chance of losing a candidate to a competing offer. Accordingly, we concentrate on providing prompt, attentive service, and our processes are clear, well-defined and efficient.

At HSF Consulting we conduct retained and contingent searches based upon our clients needs. We have access to a large pool of potential talent, increasing likelihood of placing better candidates more quickly, making either option a significant value to you.

We have worked with HSF now to fill 3 critical roles - two for hands on architects and one for an experienced community manager. They have always exceeded my expectations when it comes to how quickly they present excellent candidates. Somehow they find the people who are not only great for the position, but also ready to make a move.

Andy is unique in his ability to find the right candidate. He takes the time to get to know candidates and makes them feel taken care of. At the same time he asks probing questions to help uncover the exact needs of hiring managers. He helped my company (now part of Google) with a key Android opening. We hired the first person he sent us! I highly recommend his recruiting.

I am a big fan of Andy and his team. He is a pleasure to work with and delivers great talent. Andy helped us make several important hires in a very difficult hiring market.
