Seattle HR Executive Search
and Advisory



Top HR Executive Search Firms: Seattle

Seattle and nearby cities including Portland, Oregon have attracted an influx of tech workers in engineering, sales, and marketing in the last few years. Although they are not at the top of the list with major tech hubs such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Salt Lake City, they are constantly evolving and drawing in top tech talent from around the world. For executive search firms Seattle offer opportunities to help seek People/HR executive leaders to help companies grow and nurture a vibrant workplace culture.

Innovators in the software, gaming, cloud, logistics, and aerospace industries are becoming attracted to everything Seattle has to offer. Seattle is home to large and mid-sized employers including Amazon, Microsoft, Redfin, T-Mobile, Tableau Software, Convoy, Pitchbook, Getty Images, Avalara, Cray Inc., WatchGuard and Zillow. Notable Seattle startups to watch include Hiya, Core Scientific, Rainway, Upleve, AnswerIQ, Swiftly and TerraClear (we count our clients among both groups). We’ve followed this increase in tech companies and startups in Seattle, and hope to continue to be part of this evolutionary journey.

Affectionately ribbed as “Silicon Sound,” the Greater Seattle metropolitan area has long drawn cross-industry innovators with particular expertise in the aerospace, logistics, software, gaming and cloud spaces. The largest beneficiary of relocated, experienced talent in engineering, sales, and marketing from the San Francisco Bay Area, Puget Sound has recently been the go-to escape from the pace of life and funding frenzy of Silicon Valley.
