Technical Recruiter

Come join the meta-team and recruit for a company that builds tools for recruiters.   You’ll use your domain expertise to grow our Engineering, Product, and Design tells while also helping to evolve our product.  This is the perfect chance to expand your skills in a role that blends recruiting with user research, marketing, and cross-functional partnership across the organization.

Your primary responsibility will be to spearhead our hiring efforts and to help us hit aggressive growth goals.  We don’t view recruiting as a factory assembly line; it’s our company’s most strategic effort.  Help us to build a world-class talent org with the support of every single person on our team, including leadership.  Sourcing is a major part of our hiring strategy, so you should be confident in your abilities to seek out, engage, and nurture relationships with top talent. You will also be managing strong partnerships with your hiring managers, and should be comfortable leading, providing feedback, and driving these relationships forward to help Lever achieve our hiring goals. 

Since we’re a company that builds recruiting tools and analytics, we are seeking a recruiter who is deeply passionate about tools and bleeding-edge products.  You should be able to quickly master new tools (including Lever) and self-identify as a power-user of numerous apps.  Past tenure at a hyper-growth startup is ideal, along with expertise in technical recruiting. We’ll count on you to keep a pulse on the community of talent professionals out there, provide and contextualize product feedback, and stay on top of the entire HR tech landscape.  Help us build a community around Lever’s user base of recruiting professionals – organize events, run meetups, attend conferences – and step up to be a visible, public member of our team. Proven interest in the intersection of recruiting and tech would be a huge plus – we’d love you to share any of your blog posts, Quora activity, presentations/talks, Meetup attendance, etc.
