About You

  • You are on your way to being a master recruiter, relentless about securing top talent, resilient in the face of recruiting for hard to fill roles, and smart about hiring for fit (culture and role).
  • You may not be a technologist yourself, but you’re interested in keeping up to date on the latest technologies and related emerging professions and roles.
  • You are endlessly creative about how to market roles through all possible channels, whether social media, the latest relevant newsletters and job sites or word of mouth.

  • You have excellent judgment about people - what motivates them, what they value, and who might be a fit for which roles and which teams.
  • You’re not worried about how things have always been done, but are constantly on the hunt for new ways of attracting top talent.
  • You have a customer support mentality-the hiring managers who’ve worked with you rave about how helpful you have been to them in helping to identify and evaluate top talent.
  • You have the ability and experience to influence hiring managers into optimal hiring decisions and coach them into supporting recruitment efforts.
