Technical Sourcing Recruiter

As the Technical Sourcing Recruiter you'll help a small, elite team in building the future of Redfin Recruiting while we scale to meet the challenge head on.

We're seeking a seasoned technical recruiter to help us find great engineers for our Seattle office and set the gold standard of technical recruiting at Redfin. This company is a recruiter's dream. The Redfin website has a cult-like following among millions of folks and it's fun giving them something new to smile about every day. Our company's social mission: To reinvent the $75 billion real estate industry in the consumer's favor. We're creating beautiful technology to do it better, faster, and less costly, where the customer always comes first. The technical problems are fascinating and the platform compelling to engineers at all levels.

What you should bring to the table:

Personable: You know technical lingo and you've got a knack for getting people to talk to you who initially may not be interested. You're exceedingly well networked on LinkedIn and Facebook. You treat the people we don't end up hiring with respect.

Eye for talent: You listen carefully to what our teams really need and take that to identify the winning candidates quickly. You pride yourself on quality, not quantity, and you try to make the process efficient for everyone, not just yourself.

Sales-person: You really know how to sell a job, connecting the candidate with the right people in the organization and seeing the recruiting process through to the very end.

Wicked at sourcing: you are a pro with Boolean searches, know how to use the internet to your advantage, a sleuth at finding out where the talent lives, and are not afraid to cold call.

Consultative: You understand how to execute recruitment strategy and develop thoughtful recruiting plans. You can work with hiring leaders and peers to demonstrate effective processes and drive positive change.

Innovator: You are at the leading edge of recruiting. You know the industry and professional trends and you champion new approaches.

Leader: You lead others by example, setting the pace and demonstrating the validity of the strategy with superior execution. You patiently mentor others and your collaborative input is valued and appreciated by your teammates.

Here's what you'll do:

Find candidates: utilize programs put in place by our recruiting organization to attract qualified candidates with skills and behaviors we want to be successful with Redfin.

Market the company: work directly with your manager to identify local events that should be attended by you and the team, seek out additional venues for advertising and brand exposure.

Evaluate talent: we'll need you to prescreen candidates, assess whether they're in-line with our values, and discover what makes them tick.

Manage the pipeline: you will need to be pro-active about keeping things organized, militant about procedure, and reliable on follow-through.

Advise: Be the talent advisor to hiring leaders. Use data to influence change, map effective selection processes and recruitment plans, then execute consistently.

Guide: You'll work closely with the Recruiting Manager to develop the function and guide the team to evolve and achieve new heights of success


Experience: a minimum of three years as a technical recruiter with a history of results & proven performance delivering high-bar tech talent. A blend of recent corporate experience and prior agency experience is ideal.

Smarts: you've got a college degree or equivalent, can communicate & write well and are sharp as a tack at grasping new things.

Tech-chops: you have got this internet thing dialed, are familiar with online recruiting methods, blogging & forums.

This is a full time position with exceptional benefits and perks. You must be able to work primarily from our beautiful Seattle office, but we are a results oriented team with flexibility on schedules and some telecommuting for high performers.

Redfin is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
