Our Story

Helping growth-driven startups find their core technical talent

Hiring for early-stage startups is a high-stakes endeavor. The ability to quickly secure qualified candidates will accelerate your startup’s mission—helping you achieve even the most aggressive growth targets.

Kofi Group uses a hyper-focused, personalized recruitment strategy to secure the top 5% of passive technical talent. We research, vet, and prepare each candidate, providing your team with a shortlist of qualified candidates to interview and hire. All you have to do is give us the green light.

Since launching in 2017, Kofi Group has achieved double-digit YOY growth. As a lean team, we’re on a mission to scale to 50+ successful, full-desk recruiters by 2025.
