In 2009, after eight very successful years as a contingency recruiting agency, Binc evolved into an exclusive hybrid recruiting firm that delivers highly effective onsite hiring programs to fast growing Bay Area technology companies. Over the past four years, we have helped 23 Silicon Valley technology companies including Pinterest, Parse, WalmartLabs, and more make over 500 hires at a >95% project success rate.
We have since expanded into a Full Service Talent Firm where we continue to offer our Signature Onsite Service but have now added new services such as Recruiting for Recruiters (R4R), Talent Advisory, and the Binc Talent Network.
In a time where software is eating the world yet everything is about people, Binc finds itself at a very exciting epicenter and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us.
Often described as the Navy SEALs of Recruiting, we drop smart and driven recruiters into high urgency, high importance situations, executing full service recruiting campaigns with the goal to net your company target hires within target timeframes. This is our full service experience, which deploys an entire Binc team to your HQ and works under your umbrella brand as your plug and play recruiting organization. We take full responsibility for all parts of the process including crafting value proposition, sourcing strategy, candidate management/experience, scheduling/recruiter ops, internal process management, reporting, offer management, and closing.
To build a world class organization, you will need a world class talent organization to help get you there. Whether you are a startup needing Recruiter #1 or a later stage company needing a whole team from Head of Talent to Sourcers to Recruiting Coordinators, Binc can help.
If you are on the talent side, working with Binc is akin to having a personal scout in the hub of Silicon Valley’s hottest companies – companies that may be looking to find someone just like you. Whether you want to hear about current or future opportunities for yourself or others, Binc can help.
Sign up for the Binc Talent Advisory program and you will be in immediate partnership with a veteran Binc Talent Executive to help review, confirm, and set a plan to hit your 6-12-month hiring targets. This includes a full review and assessment of your job descriptions, posting strategy, service partners, sourcing strategy, compensation benchmarks, reporting, systems/tools, and more. Whether you are a single founder trying to hire engineers 1-5, a pre-IPO company looking to maximize market position, or a publicly traded tech company looking to stay competitive, a Binc Talent Advisor can help.
The Binc Talent Network (BTN) is an added service provided to all signature onsite clients, a handful of past clients, and a select few hand-picked early stage startups we are particularly excited about. We partner and network with top engineers in Silicon Valley, as well as throughout the country, and help make connections to our BTN clients. Hence, if you need to connect with top Machine Learning Engineers, Ruby Developers or anything in between, Binc can help.
If you are an engineer, consider Binc your personal agent: it will provide access and connections to an entire portfolio of top opportunities in the tech space. Whether you want to hear about current or future opportunities for yourself or others, Binc is your partner.
