Natalie Adams


Global experience from London, Sydney and the US, advising on strategy for building world class teams for a diverse set of technology companies, while leading awesome consultants internally. In a crowded industry I always go the extra mile, offering exceptional service with a focus on long term relationships. 


I moved to SF in 2017 foolishly believing I was moving to warmer climates; little did I know about Karl at the time but I have fully embraced the NorCal culture and all it has to offer.  Now battling an unhealthy obsession for shrimp tacos and guac.

Jeremy MacLeod


As a proud Kiwi, I hail from the North Island of New Zealand and have been fortunate enough to call Wellington, Sydney, London and San Francisco home at various times in my life. I have become addicted to working with some of the most exciting businesses in the world, in particular early stage hyper growth disruptors who understand the value of top talent.  


In my spare time I like to keep fit and bore people with Crossfit chat. I love to watch sport and now consider myself a Giants, 49ers, Sharks and Warriors fan.

Ben Lewis
Senior Consultant

As a San Francisco transplant from Southern California, I traded the great weather for exceptional culture and proximity to tech innovation a decade ago without looking back.  After stumbling out of advertising sales into the agency-side candidate search world, I was hooked from day-one, and my passion for working with startup leaders to solve their most difficult staffing problems has grown with every year that’s gone by.  The partnerships and friends I’ve made, the exciting new technologies and products I’ve been exposed to, and the opportunities for growth I’ve been given, have all been a true privilege.


I spend my spare time writing and producing progressive house and electronic music, working out, and exploring new restaurants and bars around San Francisco.  During the winter months I’ve developed a bit of an obsession with snowboarding, and can be found in Tahoe as close to every weekend as possible.

Andrew O'Connell

A New Jersey native who took a detour in Tampa and ended up in San Francisco, I couldn’t have asked for a better place to land. With a can-do attitude and passion for technology, I started my career in SaaS Sales. Before long, I too “fell” into Technical Recruitment where I advise the companies of tomorrow, partner with leading investors, and help candidates find their next adventure. I’m a big advocate for continuous learning and self-improvement, looking to instill confidence in technical talent and leadership.


If you’re looking for me outside of work, you can find me trying new restaurants, longboarding near the beach, or reading a good book in the park. Maybe squeezing a workout in here and there, too.
