Gray Scalable Spotlight: Elise Sun

Introducing Elise, our Tech Recruiting Associate a.k.a. Identifier, Generator and Stalker of Technical Talent

The tech landscape is constantly evolving, so Elise spends a lot of her time researching and learning about new technologies and how they impact what people look for in their next job. From there, she’s building connections in the industry and helping software engineers connect with awesome opportunities that align with their passions and strengths. Internally, she also serves as a project coordinator for the rollout of our new recruiting tool, and owns our talent community engagement strategy.

Elise’s natural intellectual curiosity makes her a fantastic sourcer - she always wants to learn as much as she can about our clients and roles she’s working on, which is part of why she has been so successful in engaging the best talent - who are also a great culture fit - for our clients.

Her favorite projects?

“Recently, I’ve been sourcing for Spreemo, Namely, and BuzzFeed. Getting to learn about each of their individual cultures, what their teams work on, and what their technical challenges are has been really awesome.

In particular, getting to help Namely grow their team during such an exciting time of growth has been so exciting - the energy and buzz around their office is palpable - they’re all really invested in what they’re building.

Great engineers are getting several messages each day about great opportunities. I love the challenge of figuring out how to relay the unique energy of each company we work with to prospective candidates to help them find the best fit.”

Like many of our team members, Elise is multi-talented. She’s a classically trained pianist who has performed some pretty amazing works… and she’s also been known to bring down the house with Biz Markie's "Just a Friend" on the karaoke stage.
