About the Company and Industry
Skyrocket Ventures is a rapidly expanding recruiting firm for high growth technology companies that range from industry leaders to top-tier startups. At Skyrocket Ventures, we aim to bring the best companies and candidates together.
Recruiting is consistently ranked as one of the top most lucrative professions by Fortune Magazine. Successful recruiters (aka headhunters) at recruiting firms (aka recruiting agencies, search firms/agencies, etc.) earn well into the 6-figures, with the top recruiters in the profession earning an annual income exceeding $500k. Agency recruiters are primarily sales professionals, as opposed to corporate or internal recruiters who are often more human resources oriented. We are all about results, closing deals, and getting as much done in as little time as possible. Unlike most sales jobs, this is a multi-dimensional sales profession. No two sales are the same, and the job involves selling companies on you, candidates on you, candidates on companies, and companies on candidates.
In addition to the high financial rewards we enjoy, we also get the deep satisfaction of serving the parties we work with:
1. The candidates we place - Often we’ve formed friendships with these candidates, and they are very grateful when we help them in their career advancement.
2. The companies we recruit for - We not only help the companies themselves, but are contributing to their ability to build products that often touch and improve the lives of millions of people
