Senior Recruiter

Work & Co - Brooklyn, NY (30 days ago)


Work & Co (work.co) defines and launches the world's most successful digital products and services. In just five years, we’ve become the go-to partner for respected brands, including Apple, Target, Marriott, Lyft, Etsy, American Express, LVMH and Planned Parenthood. Fast Company notes that our engineering and design teams are routinely entrusted with creating digital product for companies which rarely approach outside firms, and Forrester Research calls ours "a model to follow."

We’re seeking a seasoned Recruiter to join the Work & Co team in our Portland office. We also have offices in Brooklyn and Rio de Janeiro.

The talent pool for top digital Designers, Engineers and Product Managers isn’t huge. Because the digital product industry is still nascent, our best candidates may come from a wide variety of companies, backgrounds and geographies. We intentionally set the bar extremely high, because quality talent is what leads to the best quality products in the world.

Our new Senior Recruiter is both professional and persistent, understanding that we’re not looking to hire a lot of people, just a few of the very, very best people. Our new Senior Recruiteris an effective and confident communicator. She or he will also be responsible for ushering active candidates through our interview process as well as identifying new potential sources for candidate outreach.

The person joining our team in this position is obsessed with the candidate experience. He or she understands that the interview process should reflect the Work & Co brand. Because you have a mastery of what’s unique about Work & Co, you bring to every interview a solid understanding of our distinct processes and workflow. You’re adept at pinpointing who will be a great fit for us and who’s not. You help us to keep the standards high and maintain an environment where all employees are extraordinary at their craft, value the power of diversity and a range of perspectives, and above all, are good human beings.
