Engagement Manager Position Description

The Good Search LLC (Intellerati) is seeking a telecommuting Engagement Manager to join our elite team. The Engagement Manager will develop a book of business, manage executive search and research engagements, as well as conduct hands-on recruiting and research.  The role offers an opportunity for significant advancement at one of the leading executive search and human capital intelligence practices in the country. While the role is a telecommuting one, we prefer candidates in the Greater New York City and Boston area so that we can meet in person as required.  The role is ideally suited for highly accomplished management consultants, journalists/editors, and other executives seeking an opportunity that offers unparalleled work/life balance as well as rewarding, innovative work. 


Intellerati recruits senior executive and technology talent for some of the most powerful and successful companies in the digital arena. Our clients range from top-tier venture capital startups and private equity portfolio companies to Fortune 100 giants in technology and media. Founded in 1999, we have laid down more than two decade-long track record of success recruiting top talent with more than 600 engagements.

We actually care about the candidate, the client, and about each of our team members and want to make a difference in this world. As a result, an essential part of our success is our ability to hire individuals who share our passion for fixing what is broken about recruiting, and who want to build a business dedicated to the relentless pursuit of that ideal. That is our motivation and our mission.
