Executive Search
for People &  Talent Leaders

Growth By Design partners with tech's most innovative companies to find their next visionary leaders.

We provide an exceptional search experience for both leaders and candidates in early to late stage technology companies. Our team has extensive experience across both top tech companies and search firms which provides our clients with the best of both worlds: the partnership and exceptional candidate experience of an in-house team coupled with the sense of urgency, broad network, and market insight that a search firm provides. Collectively, we’ve been in this space for decades and have developed deep candidate networks that trust us to be representing the best roles at great companies.

We Focus on People and Talent Leaders

We understand that People & Talent leaders are key to a company’s success and can be some of the most nuanced roles to scope and fill. By going deep in these functional areas, we serve as your guide to find the right leader for your unique organization.

Our Executive Search Process

We’ve developed an approach to search through our experiences of building in-house executive recruiting capabilities from the ground up. We invest time upfront to deeply understand profile needs, the environment the company is operating in, and the characteristics that will best complement the existing team. We believe that it’s better to be thoughtful and strategic upfront to calibrate than to waste the team’s time interviewing candidates in the hopes of finding someone by ‘knowing it when you see it’. Our unique approach focuses on clear role definition, stakeholder engagement, and a structured interview process that optimizes for robust assessment, diversity and candidate experience.
