Welcome to OceansThree

Like you, we believe quality education changes the trajectory of people’s lives. And finding the right talent can change the trajectory of companies. Diverse human talent is all around us, but it is often squandered by poor fit or lack of development. OceansThree provides access to the right stars and helps you attract, develop, and retain that talent by calling on our 166 years of combined hiring and leadership experience in education and education technology.


OceansThree is a boutique search and talent development company started on the belief that if hiring the right people is one of the most important elements of a successful business, then hiring a recruiter should be far more than an expensive, transactional experience, with someone who doesn’t understand your industry, and doesn’t know or can’t attract top talent. All the partners at OceansThree are highly experienced recruiters, with deep expertise in the ed tech industry, who will work with you authentically and passionately, from beginning to beyond hiring, to help your company achieve its mission and goals.


We want to be your partner to recruit and place the talent that you need, and we’d love to help you with retention too. We’ll work with you to grow, develop, and retain your talent, either by helping onboard and coach the people that we place, or by allowing you to choose from our suite of professional development services to help you create a winning culture where everyone in your company knows they can fulfill their potential. Our mission is to help you secure, develop, and retain the best talent in the industry.
