Sr University Recruiter

Uber Overview

At Uber, we pride ourselves on the amazing team we’ve built. Delivering a first class, on-demand transportation experience takes a critical eye for quality, and we want a Senior University Recruiter who has the same critical eye. Our recruiters must be able to find the best talent while delivering a world-class candidate experience.

We are growing rapidly and need someone with hustle to help us plan and execute on a robust and scalable university hiring program. If you’re ready to show off your powerhouse program planning and recruiting skills, this may be the position for you.

The right person will be comfortable in an “all hands on deck” environment, loves solving people problems, and can thrive while working in ambiguities, inherent in startup culture. This role is all about bringing on the smartest folks, maintaining our culture as we grow, and running an efficient process to keep it moving.

YOU ARE…

  • Self-driven. You have hustle, superior organizational skills, integrity and great follow-through to drive big projects through to completion. You don’t get easily overwhelmed, you see it as a puzzle to solve.
  • A clear communicator. You can set and establish clear goals for the project teams you’re in and work with all types of people. You always have empathy for your candidates and hiring teams.
  • Obsessive about candidate experience. You’re respectful of the candidate and the stressful process a job hunt can be. You’re innovative, extremely creative, and constantly looking for ways to find top talent.
  • Fearless. You are convincing to top leadership and get their buy-in because you know your stuff and have the data to back up your recommendations. You’re excited to help build something awesome and share it with the world.
  • Fun. You’re a charismatic person who can talk to anyone.
  • Motivated. You understand the impact of a highly-satisfied, excited crew; you are slightly obsessive-compulsive about grinding away on and solving problems.
  • A builder. You’ve created processes to get through vast candidate pipelines and are willing to help out wherever needed.
  • Strategic thinking. You have the ability to pull yourself out of the tactical day-to-day and see the long term opportunities available.
