Founder's Story

Hey there, my name is Nick.

I’m the Founder and Head of Recruiting at StaffGrabbers. Based in Boston, MA, I have extensive experience in recruiting across the entire US, regardless of location.

Eight years ago, I stumbled into recruiting at a $50M agency in Boston, where I quickly became a top performer. I fell in love with the craft of understanding my clients’ needs and then magically delivering the perfect candidate to them. Realizing my talent and passion for recruiting, I took a lot of pride in my performance.

Shortly after the pandemic hit, I joined the recruiting team at Zoominfo, a B2B software company that had just IPO’d. At the time of my hire, the company had 1,000 employees, which eventually grew to 4,000. I worked closely with leadership across product management, design, marketing, engineering, and sales. 

I founded StaffGrabbers three years ago with a singular focus: to build a reputation for providing the highest quality, personalized headhunting service for product-led tech companies. I excel in tackling niche, difficult searches and delivering a white-glove experience to both candidates and clients.


In addition to StaffGrabbers, I’m also the Founder of HelpfulHires.com, a boutique recruiting agency specializing in connecting business owners and executives with exceptional talent outside the United States. I take great pride in my ability to source and recruit exceptional talent from every background for my clients.


Outside of recruiting, I’m a tech enthusiast. I love leveraging software to simplify my personal and professional life. I also have an interest in entrepreneurship, the outdoors, house plants, all things science, history and EDM and 90s music. I’m a huge family guy, and love to help others around me.


I hope to have the opportunity to work with you!


Thanks for reading.

The little things become the BIG things.
When in doubt, ask yourself: what’s best for the candidate or client? We come last.
