About Us

We refuse to accept the status quo.

We’ve been in the sales trenches for decades and have felt the very real effects of mediocre recruiting ourselves. We've also seen the magic that can happen when it's done well! So we’ve made it our life’s work to fix this industry for good.

Finding the people who will move the needle for your business requires a lot more than a stack of resumes and a few crossed fingers. So why does it often feel like that’s all you’re getting when you work with a recruiter?

That’s why we do what we do.

That’s where we’re different.


A way of approaching a problem or making progress towards something.

It takes one to know one.

We’ve built sales teams, led sales teams, worked as individual contributors, and sold 100’s of millions over the last two decades. Very few sales recruiters have the depth of sales experience we do (see our bios below)!

So whether you know what a successful candidate looks like for your role or not, we’ve got your back.

Our experience has shown us there is nothing more important to your business's success than getting the right people on your team the first time.

We're your partners in making that happen!

Working with ATP has been a really refreshing experience compared to others in the recruiting world. Most importantly, they deliver the result we’re after – talented salespeople joining us on our mission.

Amy Volas

Founder & CEO

I’m an enterprise sales fanatic and startup junkie with over 20 years and $100M+ worth of deals closed. I experienced years ago how startups too often short-circuit their potential (and their salespeople’s) by missing the mark on one very important thing: recruiting. So I founded ATP to help them get it right – and I’m proud to say we’re doing just that!

Taryn Lanaghan

Head Of Recruiting

I’ve been a salesperson for nearly 20 years (including 10 years in HR Tech) and nothing during that time has become more apparent than how important the recruiting process is to the success of startups. I’m thrilled to bring my experience in startup sales and client success to ATP to recruit the best and brightest sales gems for our remarkable clients.
