Looking for Talent

Finding the right professionals for your team is as important as the vision itself. At Global Upside we specialize in helping you find your team and make the process effortless and efficient for everyone involved.

Our Approach

We are built on the foundation of “excellence delivered every day”. Whether you are building a full finance team or just need help closing the books at month end – leave it to us to connect you with best-in-class professionals.

Our approach is to give high-growth companies the space and time needed to flourish. We manage the entire hiring life cycle (source, screen, hire) for your short or long term needs, provide advice as needed, and take care of tedious paperwork, time sheets, etc. When you need it, lean on us for significant HR expertise spanning leadership development, employment law, rewards, global mobility and more.

Our clients value our customized passive candidate recruiting approach and our extensive network of 17,000+ CPAs in the San Francisco Bay Area alone. You have access to qualified professionals who are difficult to reach through traditional recruiting sources. We deliver quality vs. quantity. We’ve reduced time to hire by 50% for several of our clients.

At the end of the day you bet on people, not on strategies.

Direct Hire

Hiring for a full-time position doesn’t need to be a full-time job for you. We know how important it is to find the right candidate with the right skills and there for the long haul. We become your brand ambassadors and communicate your company and team dynamics as effectively as the job requirements. Our screening process is geared to making the best match so you only meet with professionals who have the highest likelihood of making the cut.

We are committed to speedy hiring. We work with you to define job specifications, salary level and other requirements, and provide industry benchmarks as needed. Our goal is to find the right professionals quicker. We’re often able to reduce the time to hire by 50%.

Some of the direct hire positions we place:

  • Chief Financial Office
  • Vice President, Finance
  • Director, Revenue Accounting
  • Director, Human Resources
  • Corporate Controller
  • Accounting Manager
  • Senior Tax Manager
Global Upside’s consultative approach, expertise, and effectiveness set us up for success in hiring our first CFO. They simplified the whole hiring process and they were great to work with.

Interim / Project-Based

Interim and Project Consultants are a great alternative to hiring a full-time employee when your team is experiencing stress due to increased workloads and tight deadlines. Consultants can provide increased flexibility and productivity without you having to sacrifice experience or skills. Our reference check process includes two supervisory references and a background check at no cost to the employer.

Sample listing of interim and project-based positions we place:

  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Controller
  • Payroll Manager
  • Senior Revenue Recognition Manager
  • Staff Accountant

Global Upside blends seamlessly with our in-house team. Whenever we have a need for a contractor during the “busy” season, we call Global Upside right away. We have been clients for over 5 years and we plan on another 5 years!


Outsourcing all or part of your recruitment functions to an external service provider has many benefits including reducing recruitment costs and time to hire. We shoulder the overhead, administrative, and job board advertising investments so you don’t have to. We can help scale up during a hiring surge and scale down when things slow down. We’re more than just filling open positions. We can help improve your overall recruitment process and can help expand your team globally.

Services we offer:

  • Dedicated recruiter(s)
  • Active and passive candidate sourcing
  • Conduct phone and in-person interviews
