We're not your typical recruiters

Many founders make the wrong first marketing hires. We can help you avoid that mistake because we've been in these roles and interviewed 1,000s of marketers.

We've referred candidates hired at Workramp, Incredible Health, Reduct Video, and Cleo to name a few.

Interviewed by marketing execs

Emily Kramer or Kathleen Estreich interview every candidate we refer and provide detailed assessments.

Qualified candidates

We find marketers who are both scrappy and strategic, with the right type of experience for your company.

The right role & process

We help you define the role and plan your interview process. This sets everyone involved up for success and speeds up the overall process.

Mentorship program

We can mentor your marketer too. Our program helps make your new marketing hire successful.

What we offer

We have 2 recruiting offerings, both working directly with MKT1 Co-Founders, Emily Kramer and Kathleen Estreich.

Both offerings include help defining the role and interview process, plus participation in our contingent-fee referral network. Option 2 includes involvement throughout the process in reviewing and interviewing all candidates (not just the ones we refer).

Email us for more details at team@mkt1.co.
