Y Scouts is a startup recruitment agency that represents the best startups, executives and innovators in Phoenix.
We believe startups have the greatest potential to change the world. That’s why we decided to start up a startup recruitment agency. The future success of startups are most dependent on the talent brought in to build the company in the early stages. Our own experiences at startups have allowed us to specialize in placing people in full-time roles at companies who are in the startup phase. It’s our hope that the talent we provide puts a company over the top and onto the path to making a difference.

Here’s our startup team:
Max Hansen, Co-Founder & CEO
Max has been lucky enough to spend his entire career focusing on putting people to work. His experiences range from working at a multi-billion dollar staffing company to organically growing Job Brokers from the ground up. Max co-founded Job Brokers in January of 2002 and has grown Job Brokers into a formidable multi-million dollar staffing company.
He has worked nearly every type of position in almost every industry over his career in the recruiting industry. Max has come to realize the most gratifying feeling in the recruiting business is connecting passionate clients and candidates with a purpose. This ultimately led him to understand his “why” of helping other executives discover their why.
Brian Mohr, Co-Founder & VP of Growth
Brian began his post-college career in July of 1995; however, Brian believes his real career started in February of 2000. Joining a small employment technology start-up by the name of Jobing.com, Brian was lucky enough to be one of the founding members of the company and spent more than 10 years building the company from a small handful of employees to more than 375 with revenues reaching north of $37MM. Building the Jobing.com team and consulting with thousands of employers, Brian quickly recognized that people are the only real competitive advantage in business. Even more powerful, Brian realized if employees and companies connected on their bigger mission or purpose (the ‘Why’), the probability for success grows exponentially.
After having his fair share of working with executive headhunters in Phoenix, Brian connected with Max and Brett and together they decided to create a new search firm dedicated to connecting people and companies whose ‘Why’ are in alignment. As a founding member of Y Scouts, Brian passionately believes the high currency in today’s employment market is meaningful work, not just a paycheck.
Paul Eisenstein, Executive Recruiter
When asked about his ‘why’, Paul proudly declares that it’s “putting a dent in the universe”. Paul joined the Y Scouts team in August 2012 and leads the growing Y Scouts talent community. He connects awesome people with fantastic opportunities.
Paul moved from St. Louis to Phoenix with his wife in June 2012 and is still trying to adjust to the “dry heat”. Prior to Y Scouts, Paul served as the first full-time employee and eventually V.P. of Finance and Operations at The Mission Continues, an innovative nonprofit dedicated to empowering returning military veterans to rebuild their sense of purpose. Paul has also worked at the Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program and ran a youth program through AmeriCorps. Paul earned his M.B.A. from Washington University in St. Louis and his Bachelor’s from Saint Louis University.
