Affirm is growing, and so is our Talent Team! We need a high-energy Technical Sourcer who shares our philosophy that finding high-quality Engineering talent requires innovative, out-of-the-box thinking versus traditional reactive methods.  As the first impression of our company, you'll need to be able to relay a compelling picture of our company, vision, culture and responsibilities to prospective candidates, and be fearless in pursuing great candidates.

  • Partner with leadership to understand the competitive landscape and gather insightful recruiting data
  • Qualify and engage candidates for relevant openings
  • Implement creative sourcing strategies to achieve hiring goals

  • Proven track record for successfully identifying and hiring exceptional candidates in high growth environments
  • Experience in creative sourcing through multiple channels (web, social/professional networks, etc.)
  • Solid tech and industry knowledge with ability to understand relevant tech skills, target companies, conferences, open source communities

We're eager to meet people that believe in Affirm's mission and can contribute to our team in a variety of ways – not just candidates who check all the boxes.
