We're a lot like you...


Like the majority of start-ups that we help build and which represent our primary clientele, we liken ourselves as the nimble, scrappy start-up with finite resources and laser focus. We embrace a similar ethos as we attack the search business with a contrarian approach.


As a boutique, we only take on assignments that align with our strengths and areas of expertise. We'll deliver a swift and methodical effort that will meet or exceed your expectations.

You'll sense no shortcuts and as your partner, you'll get honest, unvarnished feedback.


Without hyperbole, we only focus on a slice of the enterprise software ecosystem, and leverage a determined, results-based approach to tackling searches that allow us to consistently surprise. Bigger firms don't mean better firms. When working smart and coupled with enthusiasm, it comes down to effort and desire. We live by this. Moreover, we thrive on being underestimated; the underdog. We'll succeed because failure is not an option.


We look forward to hearing from you, learning about your business and how we can do our part to help you realize those goals.




Jaime Corral, Principal


I founded and lead Corral Search, a boutique San Francisco Bay Area based executive search firm which specializes in partnering with early stage start-ups across AI, Cognitive Computing, MarTech and Intelligent Apps to fill meaningful roles in Sales, Marketing and Data Science.  I've been an executive recruiter for over 14 years and seen firsthand, the emergence of SaaS/Cloud Apps, Open Source, Mobile, Social, Analytics, Big Data, ML, AI, Cognitive Computing, MarTech and Intelligent Apps.  Before venturing into the search business, I sold enterprise software for nearly a decade in various inside, hybrid, field account executive and strategic account management roles at big, start-up and small/mid-size companies like Oracle, Bidcom (now McLaren Software) and SAS.  Prior to Corral Search, I co-founded and ran RosCor Group, a search firm that focused on software sales opportunities.


A Bay Area native, I graduated from Cal and live in the East Bay. I'm happily married with two children, and when not juggling various searches, I love sports, competing and staying active; can't spend enough time with my family and friends, vacationing, reading, staying fit and playing tennis.
