Meet Hayli Thornhill

After spending many years recruiting and leading teams for large global companies, Hayli joined her first technology startup in 2019. She found she loves building diverse technology teams from scratch. Hayli has had the privilege of being the founding recruiter/lead for three different early stage tech companies. She loves the pace and the unique challenge of finding and attracting top technology and GTM talent. She enjoys working closely with founders and other members of the leadership team to gain a much deeper understanding of the business and hiring goals. By understanding the bigger picture, she’s able to design and implement a hiring strategy that will deliver quality talent as well as meet ambitious timelines.

Hayli’s superpower is building strong relationships with her clients and candidates. She is dedicated to operating as an extension of her client’s internal team. What sets her apart is that she’s had an opportunity (x3) to sit in that internal seat. Hayli has been the one leading the recruitment charge and selecting an external partner when the time is right. She understands how to be a valued partner and the ROI impact for a growing company.
