As an Executive Recruiter you will...

  • Provide strategic and thought partnership to our executive leadership team, including a deep understanding of Lob’s business and competitive landscape and how external talent can inform our growth
  • Ideate and implement leadership recruiting programs and search engagements for a variety of high priority and senior leadership roles. This includes understanding and mapping the talent landscape, internal calibration and referrals, and matching those data points with the external talent pool.
