At StraightUp we don't do everything under the sun, just enabling teams to find the right software engineers.

Our goal is to keep things simple and find smart and emotionally intelligent engineers worldwide who want to live and work in New Zealand.

The Key Challenges Tech Hiring Teams Face:

The Talent Battle: Finding skilled software engineers who are not only skilled but also loyal.

The Workload Burden: From endless interviews to onboarding, the process can be exhaustive.

What's Special About StraightUp:

We understand the importance of your time because, like you, we have families too.

If you prefer to:

  • Screen endless resumes
  • Play the waiting game
  • Engage with multiple recruiters
  • Not communicate in detail about the job role

We may not be the right partner to work with.

However, if you'd prefer to connect with skilled, dedicated software engineers who not only match your team culture but also contribute to ROI, and exhibit traits like emotional intelligence, loyalty, and a disciplined mindset, we can be the key to assisting you in bringing the right software engineer into your team.

Purpose of StraightUp

StraightUp is not just a company; it's a mission that is a company.

We work on focused roles each month. We work with engineers to unleash their intuition, upgrade their subconscious, and architect their career paths.

We don't assess talent solely on certifications, frameworks, libraries, keyword-filled resumes, cover letters, or buzzwords. Instead, we focus on individuals' abilities, allowing them to showcase their performance based on their core strengths, passion and interests.

We help ethical teams find superhero engineers. Our business is very much focused on staying present, finding purpose, and not matching jobs with CVs

Our Approach!

Our KPIs and motivations are different. It's not based on traditional business metrics.

Instead, our focus is on transforming lives and achieving successful retention.


Global Talent Attraction: 

We work with software engineers from NZ and around the world who are eager to contribute to New Zealand businesses and who seek to contribute to a bigger cause rather than just focus on a paycheck or job title.


Collaborative Recruitment Process: 

We collaborate closely with engineering teams, throughout the recruitment process.

In addition we prepare teams to adopt a streamlined and proactive approach, while also assisting key executives in building a brand that attracts top talent.


Collaborative Coaching Process:

We team up with software engineers to improve their communication, polish their presentation skills, and increase their confidence ahead of interviews.

We run workshops on Identity shifting so that every individual who works with us understands what they are truly after and shift their identity within to achieve the outcome they desire.

Our goal is to ensure they show up fully prepared, giving their utmost effort, rather than merely attending an interview.

How StraightUp Excels In Sourcing Software Tech Talent

  • We understand how to appeal to Gen Y, Z, X.
  • How to attract and appeal to passive candidates.
  • We mastered the art of having meaningful conversations.
  • We understand the tricks to expand our reach on Linkedin and Google.
  • We understand how to tell a story so a busy software engineer can listen.
  • We understand the power of emotion and emotional recruitment in the tech space.
  • We don’t focus on the number of years of experience but on their hidden skills.
  • We have plugins on our browser at our fingertips to turn every piece of candidate data into valuable information.
  • We source not only from Linkedin or A Job Board but also through alternative methods, be it webinars, Reddit, international referrals, stack overflow, Github, or social media, to name a few.

That’s enough words written.

If you are keen to take this further, the best practical approach is to have an online conversation.
