Passive Candidate Research


Intellerati specializes in technology executive recruitment research. Therefore, we work at the talent epicenter of new and emerging technologies. For this reason, we specialize in recruiting Technology, Engineering, Product Development, Cybersecurity, and Product Management Executives. We regularly conduct passive candidate research, mapping some of the most powerful technology executive teams in the world.

We also have experience sourcing senior executives for other C-level functions: Chief Executive Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Marketing Officers, Chief Revenue Officers, and more.

Because we search smarter, we have laid down a track record of success that keeps clients coming back for more.

Functional Expertise

C-Level Leaders. EVPs. SVPs. Vice Presidents. Senior Technologists. 

Intellerati is an executive search firm alternative. Our recruiting research resembles the work of retained executive search firms.

Like elite retained search partners, we identify, profile, qualify, and recruit top-performing talent. We have access to the best-of-the-best executives and technologists.

In fact, our expert recruitment research uncovers top talent others miss.

“Smarter candidate research really is how to outperform traditional retained search firms. That’s the power of research done well.”
