What helps Cyber Start Ups Hire Best Talent?

We have learned through personal experience that you will hire one of 3 types of salespeople:


Prepared, polished and presentable, decent track record but will deliver a mix of promising and poor results.


Robust and resilient, exhibit hunter-mentality, adopt a proactive approach to problems, but still can’t accelerate rapidly or match your chosen pace.


Exceptional hunters who exhibit meticulous attention to detail. Entrepreneurial outlook, revenue generators, and cut-throat competitive nature.
I see Nine as a true partner organization. Very professional and accessible at any time, I was impressed with their mapping and researching skills, based on the strong recruitment needs. I strongly recommend Nine.
Tal Hershkovitz - CFO & COO


This is the second company with which I have contracted Nine for recruitment services. In both cases they have been very responsive and have had a great network. Additionally, the team was very good to work with.
