Always On Target


Search done the correct way
for the best

We have established a truly different kind of search firm; a search firm that is laser-focused... never misses a delivery... and never has a candidate not selected for an interview


Targeting the best,
for the best

Not only do we target the best candidates, but we do it for the best clients... and we have also created a process that is both rewarding for all involved, and puts the "FUN" back into professional search.

We get it done

We get it done quick

It is our extended goal to turn our candidates into seven figure earners. Since we concentrate our focus on the recruitment of software sales professionals, we are always focused on a process which yields fast results and candidates that are never off target.

  •    John and his staff from 50 Caliber have proven to be an amazing asset as we scale our organization. The teams ability to find top talent, manage the recruiting process, and limit the candidate pool to "final interview" quality candidates has been immensely valuable to Tanium.

    Mike Carpenter - President, Global Sales and Field Operations at Tanium
  •    50 Caliber is the Jerry Maguire of finding software sales talent. Seriously! The industry is chalked full of b-talent sales "executives" and worse, c-talented placement firms. 50 Caliber consistently marries top-shelf talent to tier 1 opportunities - equally serving both audiences. It's a value game for them, whereas most other firms are just playing the volume game. I guess that's why 50 Caliber lands so many contracts with exclusivity.

    Chris Smith - Vice President WW Sales at Invincea
  •    Disanto and his team stand alone in the recruitment of sales talent. 50Caliber is the go to recruiting firm for a large percentage of our portfolio companies who are scaling. John also placed a large percentage of my field team at Opsware... he is the Tom Brady of the recruiting qame!

    Mark Cranney - Operating Partner at Andreessen Horowitz and ex VP World Wide Sales Opsware
