in the universe!


About us

RedSofa Berlin was launched in 2014.

As part of the rapidly expanding RedSofa family, we were determined to create a European Creative Recruitment Hub with a real difference. In other words, do a better job than the competition and have fun at the same time.

Well, years on we're helping and placing more people than we ever thought possible and having more fun than we ever imagined.

Our philosophy is blindingly simple: only hire the very best consultants and then watch them and the business flourish. Of course, there are other elements to our success, passion, creativity and the building of long-term relationships: but working with the very best people will always be at the core of our being.

We now cover almost every area in our sector, ranging from junior designers to global CEOs. Our expertise in most areas is now being regarded as almost unequaled.
