We're a lot like you...
Like the majority of startups that we help build and which represents our primary clientele, we liken ourselves to the nimble, scrappy startup 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 search firm which specializes in partnering with early stage startups across AI, Open Source and SaaS, to fill meaningful roles in Sales, Marketing and Data Science. I've been an executive recruiter for nearly 16 years and seen firsthand, the emergence of SaaS, Open Source and more recently, AI. Prior to 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, startup and small/mid-size companies like Oracle, Bidcom (now Idox) and SAS. Prior to Corral Search, I co-founded RosCor Group, a search firm that focused on software sales opportunities.
I was born and raised in the Bay Area, graduated from Cal and now live in the East Bay. I'm happily married and have a teen and tweener, as well as house full of overindulged pets. In my free time, I’m usually at the gym and generally staying active, spending a lot of time with my beautiful family and friends, traveling as much as possible, and trying to learn something new every day.
