to connect promising companies with the talented people who can bring their business to the next level.


PeopleConnect is the most unique recruiting firm in the world! The reason that we can make that most audacious statement is that of our Employees Without Paychecks model which we created after the dot-com bust in 2001 to help startups who desperately needed top talent but didn’t have the funding yet to hire them. Our recruiters are experts at finding remarkable entrepreneurial candidates who are willing to work for Equity Only or Equity Plus Commission until a startup gets its next round of funding.


PeopleConnect’s unique Contingency Plus placement service is for full-time salaried positions and offers thorough research, expert vetting, leadership and personal search without requiring you to pay in advance. If you’re looking for “A” players, we can deliver them!


“Max is truly a leader in his industry. He has a gift for working with people and a unique insight into the world of high-tech start-ups. This leadership resonates through his entire company. But what I really want to stress about Max is that in our lifetimes we rarely meet people who give a damn – he does.”

— Paul Bragiel, Founder, CEO, Angel investor

“Max is a force of nature – he loves entrepreneurs and is a fantastic networker and service provider.”

— Mitchell Kertzman managing General partner, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners

“We got excellent, quality candidates that we were immediately able to onboard. Roles were filled much, much quicker to the point where we’ve done several hires with PeopleConnect, and we’ve been happy with all of them.”

— Joe Inkenbrandt, CEO of Identify3D

“PeopleConnect recently helped Blurb hire two key people who both fit in and stand out. I highly recommend PeopleConnect as responsive, creative, and skillful recruiters who listen well and are well-connected.”

— Eileen Gittins, COB, Blurb
