The Gold Standard In

Recruitment for Startups

Richard Wheeler Associates is a leading recruiter for startup and scale-up companies.

Since 1987 we’ve played a pivotal role partnering with UK startups, scale-ups and university spin-outs to build software teams. These relationships have proved enduring.

We have a deep understanding of the dynamic culture and commercial demands within the high tech startup community.

Through partnering with RWA over the long term such companies have successfully built and grown their businesses from the ground up - Clearswift, McAfee, Superscape, PassivSystems, Diffblue, Intelligent Environments, Insignia Solutions, Osirium - to name a few.

Startup Careers

We’re proud of our track record of successfully representing exceptional people - people with vision, experts in their field, many with PhD’s - who are looking to work in exciting high growth teams.

Candidates are experienced game changers who can make a real, quantifiable difference; frequently qualified to degree or PhD level and often people who don’t upload a CV onto job boards.

We’re aware of how critical the first employees are to the success of a high growth startup and work with founders, CTO’s or hiring managers to recruit permanent Engineering, Product, R&D, AI, Data and QA talent.

We partner with award winning technology-led companies to recruit for jobs based in London, Oxford, Birmingham, the high-tech M3, M4 corridor, as well as hybrid remote and fully working from home across different countries and time zones.

If you would like to explore your career options we would like to hear from you.
