As I look at February 19th on my Google Calendar, I see an event highlighted reminding me of my upcoming Gray Scalable Anniversary titled: “6 years, huh???” Some may think it’s unusual to stay in one place for so long, but that is the beauty of working at Gray Scalable. Every day still feels new and exciting because of the unique way we work!
Every day, I get the opportunity to work with growth stage startups and act as an internal member of their team while helping them hire. As embedded recruiters, we embed into our clients’ HR and recruiting teams, to understand their culture, advise on strategy, and provide exclusive sourcing and hiring support. We get to know our clients from the inside out, so every new client is a new workplace and opportunity. Doing this combines my love of meeting new people and constantly learning new things. I count myself lucky to be welcomed by these teams as an internal member, and cherish every engagement I’ve worked on.
At Gray Scalable we have a variety of clients and are given the opportunity to work with 4-8 every year! My past clients have included Buzzfeed, Olo, mParticle, Skillshare and more. In recruiting for these teams I get to talk to numerous candidates from different places and backgrounds, which makes every day different from the day before. Speaking with them about their career journeys always leaves me reflecting on my own.
This past year has been tough for all of us, but I have never felt closer to my team and excited about our company’s direction and the year ahead. As I reflect on my past six years, I don’t have that feeling of “where to next” as some may feel after being at the same company for so long - my feelings skew more towards “What’s next for Gray Scalable?” We’ve come a long way in two years, and I look forward to seeing what the next few bring. Right now, we’re growing the team - check out our open jobs!
I feel so lucky to get to do this for 6 years - and I can’t wait for another 6 or more to Grow with Gray!
