Strong Suit 253: A New Twist on Executive Recruiting

By October 18, 2018 No Comments

Did you know that 80% of job opportunities at $100,000+ filled every month aren’t advertised?

Despite the internet, it’s still a highly inefficient & hidden market.

Joe Meyer, Founder & CEO of Execthread, intends to change that. It’s NYC-based VC-backed job-sharing network that enables executives to access that “hidden job market.”

ExecThread has become the largest global aggregator of unpublished executive-level job opportunities.

Joe has been a successful start-up CEO and operating executive at high-growth tech companies including HopStop (acquired by Apple), Quigo (acquired by AOL) and eBay. He’s been named Entrepreneur of the Year by Crain’s New York Business.

And investors have taken notice. He’s raised $6.5 million in capital from Canaan Partners, Javelin Venture Partners, NextView Ventures, and Corazon Capital.

In this 20-minute conversation, Joe explains how it works & why. If you’re looking for a senior-level role, or senior-level talent, pull on this thread & listen.
