We are a technology executive search firm that believes that inspired organizations and leaders start with understanding why. There’s more to finding the perfect executive for your organization than what can be found on a resume. Y Scouts is THE Technology Executive Search Firm.

Why Does Your Company Exist? Why Do You Get Out of Bed in the Morning?

When organizations and their leaders understand the purpose behind their actions, they inspire others to join their mission. Recognizing the essence of this purpose is crucial in shaping your company’s culture. How was your company’s culture created? Probably by its executives, right?

At Y Scouts, we connect technology executives who aim to create a positive impact and seek to align themselves with companies that are already making a difference. The right executive paired with the right company is a win-win situation for everyone involved. Hiring highly motivated professionals with a history of success can impact your company in all the right ways.

At Y Scouts, we understand that hiring experienced people who are motivated and share your passion is essential. Our team of technology executive recruiters will ensure that candidates fit well with your vision and culture.

Ultimately, each leader we introduce possesses a balanced blend of professional expertise, personality traits, and a sense of purpose that aligns perfectly with your organization’s needs and expectations. We go far beyond flipping through resumes.

Here’s our approach:

  1. Fanatical Preparation + Radical Realignment
  2. Organizational DNA Assessment
  3. Role Visioning Exercise
  4. Opportunity Profile
  5. Search Strategy and Timeline
  6. Interview Guide
  7. Search Update
  8. Finalist Presentations
  9. Ongoing Support After Candidate Placement

Our unique approach to finding the best executives focuses on aligning leadership talent with organizational culture and values.

  • Understanding Client Needs – We begin by gaining a deep understanding of the client’s organization, culture, values, and strategic objectives. Close collaboration with clients helps to identify their specific hiring needs and desired leadership attributes.
  • Leadership Alignment Assessment – We start by thoroughly assessing the client’s leadership needs, aiming to align talent with the organization’s culture and values. Our priority is to find candidates who not only have the necessary skills and experience but also seamlessly fit into the client’s distinctive culture and vision.
  • Executive Search Process – Y Scouts utilizes a combination of research, networking, and candidate assessment techniques to identify and attract top leadership talent. Using our extensive network and industry expertise, we can always source candidates who meet your company’s criteria.
  • Values-Based Screening – We employ a values-based screening process to evaluate candidates’ alignment with the client’s organizational culture and values. This is based on factors such as leadership style, communication skills, and cultural fit, in addition to the required technical qualifications.
  • Transparent Communication – Throughout the entire recruitment process, Y Scouts maintains open and transparent communication with both clients and candidates so no one is ever left in the dark. We will provide regular updates on the progress of the search and facilitate clear communication between all parties involved.
  • Candidate Presentation – Y Scouts presents a curated list of qualified candidates to the client, accompanied by detailed profiles highlighting each candidate’s qualifications, experience, and cultural fit. This also includes a video snippet of our deep-dive interview with the candidate to give you a preview into how they both communicate and present themselves. We’ll oversee the interview process and offer assistance and guidance to both clients and candidates.
  • Selection and Onboarding Support – Y Scouts assists clients with the final selection of candidates and provides support during the onboarding process to ensure a smooth transition for all parties involved.
