As a leading anti-human trafficking organization in the United States and Asia, it has been challenging finding the right staff to join our growing team. The AVRA team has served as an extension of our human resource team, helping us fill critical roles. They are responsive, knowledgeable, and committed to helping Nomi Network grow our mission to serve women and girls around the world. — Diana Mao, Co-Founder & President of Nomi Network

As a founder, we’re all busy and hiring is just another thing that seems like a daunting task when your plate is already full. Maren and her strong team took the stress out of the hiring process and assured me that they would handle the heavy lifting of vetting resumes and screening the candidates. We were looking to hire our first SDR (which was foreign territory for me) and the AVRA Talent team streamlined the entire process. I was very impressed by their level of professionalism and guidance with each step. Our first SDR hire has been a success and this would have been a difficult time-consuming process for me without Maren and her team. AVRA is a joy to work with and I would recommend them to any founder who is just as busy as I am.  — Sean Green, Co-Founder + CEO of Arternal

Hired! Thank you so much for your help during this process. It was a great experience, and it’s an honor to have been selected from a pool of so many talented candidates. I want to thank you again for all your time, attention and encouragement throughout this process. It meant a lot to me that you shared with me the feedback I received from my references. Thank you for shepherding this process, and no matter the outcome, it’s been a pleasure working with you and your agency! – Lynn D., SDR

AVRA Talent Partners learned our culture and requirements — and within 30 days we had three offers out to qualified, amazing candidates. AVRA’s team was responsive, proactive and hands on. Highly recommended! — Philip Kaplan, Founder & CEO of DistroKid

Hired! Thanks for being my first point of contact early on, helping me develop the language necessary for this position and for making the whole process low-stress. – Ty T.,  Quality Control Associate

Hired! Honestly, I wouldn’t tell you guys to change a thing. From the start, I was so impressed with the speed of your responses, and your friendliness overall. It was a great first impression and awesome reflection on the company as a whole. You were extremely professional while still remaining so personable and inviting. This made it very easy for me to be myself and speak from the heart. I feel like I was treated with RESPECT, which is surprisingly rare these days, especially when it comes to the interview process. It was greatly appreciated. I would describe my experience with AVRA as the ideal recruitment experience. If only AVRA was around for all my past hirings! I’m sure many headaches would’ve been eliminated. I could only hope to work with people of the same caliber in the future. It was a genuinely awesome experience (and not just because I got a job out of it)! – Krista C., Quality Control Associate

The quality of candidates you delivered to us was good, the way you managed the communication between my team and yours was excellent and you always did what you said you were going to do. Thanks for helping us improve the strength of our team. — Tom Rypma, Franchise Partner of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

You were both incredibly communicative, responsive and helpful. You gave us a high quality pool of candidates which produced an ideal match in relatively few interviews. Overall, a great experience with an optimal result. — Ben Porter, VP of Operations of 1-800-GOT-JUNK?

As a service based business, we’re only as good as the people we hire. When we tried to manage recruiting ourselves, we found that only 1 in 10 candidates passed muster… that was a tremendous amount of time wasted on reviewing resumes and interviewing. Now with AVRA’s help, nearly every candidate we interview is a slam dunk. The speed, accuracy, and bespoke service they offer have been instrumental to our growth! — Vanessa Kruze, CPA & Founder, Kruze Consulting

Our New York-based blockchain company had several urgent hiring needs that AVRA helped full. Maren and the AVRA team have the most comprehensive and data-driven process of any recruiter we worked with. From the start, they helped us calibrate our job postings – both in terms of content as well as the channels that we were recruiting through. Their detailed candidate evaluation process allowed us to get a much sense of candidates (than just looking at a resume) before deciding whether or not to interview them. Their end-of-week check-ins allowed us to provide feedback and calibrate the searches. Finally, AVRA’s unique compensation structure ensures that they are aligned with our best interests. This is how all recruiters should structure their fees. AVRA is truly innovating the recruiting landscape, and it has been a pleasure working with them! –  Maggie Hsu, VP of Business Development at AirSwap

Hired! Thanks so much, Maren! I couldn’t have asked for a better team to lead me through the recruitment and interview process – you guys were incredibly helpful every step of the way. I hope our paths cross again soon, but either way let’s keep in touch. Wishing you and the team the best! –Britton Overall, Technical Product Manager

Hired! Thanks so much for all of your help and kindness throughout the process. I’ve worked with a number of recruiters and this experience was uniquely positive – Chris S., Visual Designer

Great Job, very thoughtful process. I think you did a good job listening to the team and having a feel for the kind of people we needed to fit the roles. I enjoyed working with you and the interactions were always very efficient, engaging and productive. — Eric Thurber, Managing Director at Three Bridge Wealth Advisors

I’ve never given a recruiter an NPS of 10, until now; AVRA Talent solves so many hiring problems at once it’s hard to know where to start praising you. AVRA Talent simplifies the process of identifying, interviewing and hiring top-notch remote employees, but they don’t dumb it down. The AVRA Talent team is so well coordinated and expert at communication and guidance throughout the entire hiring process that you’re likely to think you have the HR department of a top Silicon Valley tech company at your disposal. Working with AVRA Talent makes me want to grow my business even more. I can’t wait till we need to make our next hiring sprint so that we can work with AVRA Talent again. In competitive market for quality remote talent, AVRA Talent stands out with the right balance of technical execution, consulting guidance and just the right pace to make sure you hire top-notch candidates without rushing your decision. As a business owner that has always abhorred the hiring process, but loves people, AVRA Talent was the right combination of technical know-how and down-to-earth, truly helpful recruiting consultants. Having worked with hyper-growth tech startups and demanding venture capital firms for nearly two decades, I know AVRA Talent is the best solution for startups to hire quality remote teams, rapidly, cost-effectively and with high confidence of long-term success – Matthew Stotts, CEO at Tenor PR

As a small business owner, recruiting talent is a critically important task, but can also be very time consuming and take me away from other critical tasks. It’s also not what I’m best at! Working with Avra has taken the stress of recruiting off my plate, as well as the headaches associated with working with typical recruiters. They often ask for a lot of my time, reviewing a rolodex of candidates that are not a fit. I’ve had very little success with traditional recruiters, whereas Avra has found the right candidate for 100% of the roles for which we’ve hired them. They are transparent, a pleasure to work with, and take their recruiting process further, helping to really vet candidates before they come across my desk. I’m looking forward to a long relationship with the Avra team! – Heather Kauffman, Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer at Full Circle Home.

Hired! I did want to thank you for reaching out to me in the first place! And for helping to guide me throughout the process and being supportive throughout to entire journey. It has been a pleasure working with you as well, and I hope that we stay in close contact. Hopefully we see some strong commercial growth so that we can reach out to you for other hires on my team!!! Thank you for what you do — and more importantly, HOW you do it.–  C.G., Director of Marketing at Full Circle Home.

Hired! Thanks for your support through this process, you made it so manageable and easy. I am very excited for this new chapter and it was so encouraging to see the impact I had with the people I used to work with (from the words you shared from my references). “ – Raquel V., Lead Designer at Full Circle Home.


You did great. It was a quick, smooth process. I would recommend you to others. – Chris Nicholson, CEO at Skymind.

Hired! “I can’t thank you enough for being my champion during this process, for your constant encouragement and confidence in me. I’m honored to be a part of my new team. – David S., Head of Growth at Seed.

Having worked with many other recruiters, I can easily say AVRA is the best we’ve ever worked with. They take the time and care to actually understand the type of people (skills + fit) we are looking for upfront, which ultimately saves us a ton of time/headache, since they only show us good candidates without too much noise or overhead. We’ll continue to use AVRA for help hiring any non-technical role. – Sam Wilcoxon, CEO of AskLorem

I was impressed by your thoroughness and how on top of the project you were. You also took the time to really understand the company and the role, which was great. I have high hopes for this candidate we hired. I hope we end up working together again. – Mike Chen, CEO at Magic.

Hired! Thank you so much for all your work. I’m very happy here at CreditStacks. The whole process was seamless, I would describe AVRA as very thorough and direct. Thanks again for everything Kym. You are amazing and I hope to work with you again in the future. – Stephen Burkhardt, Customer Support Specialist at CreditStacks.
