We understand that building a full and accurate description of the desired professional’s profile is essential to a successful search.


The Ella team performs extensive candidate mapping so we can select professionals with the skills, competencies and experiences best suited to the position, as well as to your company’s business model and culture.


We present to your company a shortlist of only the most qualified candidates for the opportunity, in order to align the results with the company’s expectations and continue the process.


We make the first contact with the candidates selected by the company and schedule preliminary interviews with those who show interest in the opportunity.

Hear From Our Beloved Clients

“I was on the search for the ideal profile for the position of CTO for nearly two years, going through two tier 1 executive recruitment companies. Through Endeavor, I came to know Ella Executive Search and in just five months, they were able to precisely translate what GRAN needed and quickly connected us with matching profiles. Deep understanding of the market, focus on company culture, long-term strategic partnership, reputation, and agility and effectiveness are some of the differentiators of Ella. From the extreme, peculiar, and unique ability to translate the job profile and communicate to executives, to the minute details of a stock options contract, Ella operates with excellence at all stages. I recommend them without any reservations!”


“The competition for technology talent in the market is extremely fierce: we do not train enough professionals to meet the demand of companies that grow exponentially. Ella Executive Search is a great partner in this journey: their knowledge of the technology market helps us to correctly understand our demands and challenges, which in addition to greatly speeding up the hiring process, also helps in the success of the candidate. I highly recommend it!” 


“Ella has been a great partner of ours since our early days. They not only do a job of finding candidates for our demands, but they understand our culture, our strategic objectives and help us prioritize and consolidate the profile for each challenge. What impresses me most about Ella’s work is their ability to understand our culture and deliver professionals who are well adherent to it. I find this fundamental in a company that doubles in size rapidly and needs to be careful so that growth does not become a cultural problem and consequently a lack of identity and belonging.”


“The first differential of Ella Executive Search is that they start the process before the other hunters, that is, helping you to define the ideal profile for the position, and the second differential comes when accessing the candidates: the market knows the reputation of the team and this makes all the difference in reaching the right professionals.”
