About the role

In this role you’ll work directly with the founding team, help set our hiring goals, source candidates, interview candidates, and help establish our hiring brand.

Who you are

  • You're entrepreneurial.  You are comfortable with ambiguity and thrive in fast-pasted environments. You've likely worked at startups before or might want to start one in the future.

  • You're experienced.  You have 2+ years of recruiting or sourcing experience. Startup experience is ideal but not required.

  • You're hardworking.  You understand that building a category-defining company requires people that work smart and that also work hard.

  • You're creative.  In a hiring environment that is more competitive that it ever has been, you enjoy coming up with creative solutions.

  • You’re analytical. You understand why it is important to have an analytical approach to hiring and rigorously test out new ideas.

  • You’re organized. You have a clear approach in reporting recruiting metrics back to team, using these data points to speak to your work and overall outcomes.

What you'll do

  • You’ll source. You’ll help improve our top-of-funnel pipeline of high-caliber candidates.

  • You’ll screen. You’ll do the 1st interview with most candidates and assess if there is a good initial fit.

  • You’ll help establish our hiring brand. Companies that consistently hire great people tell the world about it and loudly celebrate when new employees join. You’ll help us set up those processes.

  • You’ll define processes. From job description to interviews pipelines, you’ll set up with processes that work.

  • You’ll play the long game. It’s not unusual for the best hires to take 1 year to close. You’ll maintain a network of potential candidates through proactive market research and ongoing relationship management.

Why you should join Portal

At Portal, we're building Shopify for Service Businesses. Our mission is to power the next generation of modern service companies. We help marketing agencies, accounting firms, and many other types of businesses to sell and deliver their services online.

While it is straightforward to set up a Shopify store and sell a physical product on the Internet, entrepreneurs that want to provide a service on the Internet have to stitch together apps and are unable to offer clients a streamlined experience under their own brand. We want to change this by giving service businesses the building blocks (messaging, payments, etc.) to design their own product and offer their clients a modern streamlined experience.

In February 2022, we raised a $10M seed round led by Ali Rowghani at YC Continuity and Lachy Groom. Other investors include Y Combinator, Liquid 2, Tribe, Addition, Slope, YC partner and Scribd founder Jared Friedman, former SVP Product at Lyft Ran Makavy, and Pipe founders Zain Allarakhia and Josh Mangel.
