Will Trimble

Associate, Engineering at Artisanal Talent Group

Will was born and raised in Washington, DC. After earning his degree in Political Science and History from Duke University, Will did a 180 and chose to move to the west coast, which eventually led him to become a member of Riviera Partners' Operations team. Will later transitioned to executive recruiting at Riviera, where he worked on Engineering and Product searches for Growth Stage, VC-backed companies—supporting searches from Series A-Series F.

Will joins Artisanal's engineering practice under Alex Zakupowsky, where he helps high-growth companies attract and hire the best engineering talent in the industry. Will currently works in San Francisco (North Beach) and participates in all the stereotypical SF activities: biking, hiking, surfing, and Jiu Jitsu. Most mornings, you can find him biking up across the GG Bridge and up Hawk Hill. Will loves to challenge himself in his athletic and professional life and believes that there is no substitute for persistence and grit.
