Custom HR solutions for start-up and growth-stage companies.

The Gray Scalable Team helps companies grow and evolve their people practices to match the standards of the world’s leading tech companies. From pre-Series A to post-IPO companies, we help build amazing teams and we develop customized programs that engage your people and advance your culture.


Embedded Recruiting: A Better Model

We are not a recruiting agency. We are consultants that partner with our clients to help them build the best possible teams – in engineering and product, sales and marketing, and HR and recruiting. 

  • Sourcing - We take a multifaceted approach to sourcing. Not only will we be able to utilize our own extensive network and in-house sourcing team, but we will work with your company to elevate brand visibility, increase employee referrals, and coach your organization on how to create a culture of recruiting.

  • Interviewing - We make sure your team is prepared to assess potential talent in a way that ensures they make the right choices. We want to find you the best person for your company, not just the best resume.

  • Offer & Hire - Because we're embedded and work onsite, we live your culture and values alongside you. This gives us a unique advantage as we manage the candidate through the interview and offer process, partnering with you until the committed number of jobs are filled.


Human Resource Consulting

We help fast growing companies with the people programs they need - including organizational planning, compensation structure and analysis, management training, cultural assessment, performance management, and other customized coaching and HR services.

  • Workshops & Training - We offer both off-the-shelf and fully customizable skill-based workshops & trainings - all can be tailored for leadership, managers, or an all-staff audience. Trainings are fully customizable and usually cover topics specific to your company and the roll-out of an initiative.

  • Levels & Compensation - Our team will work with you to analyze your compensation and align your pay practices with the competitive market.

  • Strategic Consulting - Our senior HR consultants can work with your HR or leadership team around any short or long-term needs that arise as your organization grows.

  • Toolkits & Guides - We’ve drawn on our experience working with over 50 companies to offer a variety of guides that either stand on their own or as part of a larger engagement.

  • HR Programs - We can create or refine any HR program so that it fits your size, stage, and specific requirements, and is built to scale as needed. For most engagements we’ll do an assessment, create a map of recommended areas of focus, and work with you on the creation and roll-out of solutions.

  • People Analytics - Our People Analytics team can help you assess your organization and create data-based plans on how to grow thoughtfully and intentionally.


Executive Search: The Gray Scalable Approach

We are trusted partners known for having a principled, consultative, assessment-based approach to Executive Search. Versatility and results and a long-time commitment to our client/partners in the tech startup space have earned Gray Scalable long-lasting relationships with our clients.

Our team’s reputation in the marketplace, approach and philosophy to establishing new relationships, and ability to leverage each of our business lines allows us to quickly connect with and attract the very best talent for our clients.

We offer customized service and welcome the opportunity to help our clients with their most interesting and challenging roles. We have helped our clients find everything from Chief Technology Officers and Heads of Engineering, to Chief People Officers, to senior-level Product, Growth, Revenue, and Operational roles. Our broad functional expertise allows us to understand how each role is interconnected and also provides a powerful networking platform. Because we are a boutique, we are able to avoid the typical challenges and conflicts that larger search firms must navigate.


How Can We Help?

Name *
Gray Scalable has been a huge support to Namely in many ways as we’ve grown. They’ve helped with bursts of tech hiring a couple of times, worked with us early on to improve our hiring brand and process, made some key senior hires, and most recently helped us build a sustainable a data-supported compensation process. They were a helpful bridge before we had a people team, and they’re now a great complement to our growing team when we need specific expertise. Their recruiters have all been amazing and Sam Feldman, their Analyst, was a really exceptional thought partner for our comp structuring and analysis.
