About the job

Scribd is growing fast! We're looking for a results-oriented, creative technical recruiter to help us scale software engineering and operations teams.  

This is a full cycle recruiter opportunity, meaning you do it all - build strong relationships with hiring managers and their teams, ensure that candidates have an awesome experience with Scribd (even if we don’t make an offer), creatively source for the most challenging positions, efficiently schedule candidates with one arm tied behind your back (okay, you can use both arms), and guide the feedback and offer processes to effectively close the best candidates.

***Please note that this is a contract-to-hire position.***

About You

You've worked in fast paced environments with small, scrappy teams and found creative ways to source software engineering and technical talent. You have excellent communication skills, a knack for writing engaging, personalized sourcing messages, creative ways to find and attract candidates, and a can-do attitude. You get excited about the product and teams you're building and it's infectious.  You know how to manage the entire recruitment process and take pride in not just delivering successful hiring outcomes, but knowing that the experience of every candidate was a positive one.
