Meet your team

  • Talent Acquisition is at the forefront of any growing organization and remains the number 1 priority at Choco.  We are looking for an individual that will own all things hiring for the region of Germany and Austria.  This position will report into Jason, Head of TA, and Julius and Tina, General Managers of DACH, and will act as a business partner to Julius/Tina.  You will have responsibilities to not only deliver on headcount but also work on strategic initiatives within the region and company wide.

Where: Berlin, Germany // German and English speaking abilities required

Due to the highly collaborative nature of our business (and the fact that we enjoy spending time together), this is primarily an in-office position.

What you’ll do

  • You will work as part of a team and own the hiring process for several operations roles and TA projects end to end.
  • Act as a partner, guide and deliver a great experience to both candidates and hiring managers. 
  • Proactively source, pipeline, attract, interview and close candidates within the Operations (sales, partnerships, business development, marketing, support etc.)  Finance, Legal, and HR domain

  • You will continuously deliver a great candidate experience 

What we’re looking for

  • Strong understanding and interest in technology and software development process: you can hold a conversation with a developer and discuss in detail what is expected from a new hire.
  • Experience in sourcing diverse candidates using a range of creative tools and channels: sure, everyone uses LinkedIn but you should be able to source candidates from at least 4-5 other channels.
  • You have excellent communication skills and are able to adopt your style to your audience.
