About the role

Join us to build out our in-house recruiting function from scratch. We are at the forefront of digitizing the B2B economy,  and in this role you’ll play a pivotal role in ensuring we assemble a world class team to execute against this mission. We approach recruiting as a product, and “slope” – constantly iterating – is the most important thing. You’ll be able to build and evolve our end-to-end hiring framework and work closely with our founders on a day-to-day basis. We expect a collaborative approach with teams across the organization. We’re looking for a self-starter, who is an expert problem solver, clear and empathetic communicator, quick learner and operator, and has demonstrated success dealing with uncertainty.

<u>Why work with us?</u>

  • You will get the chance to be an early team member at a fast-growth Y-Combinator-backed startup. We truly believe that it’s about slope — not where you start but how fast we and you are growing and iterating

  • We are growing insanely fast and are well-funded. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join our rocketship and build from the ground up. From a recruiting standpoint this means your scope will be broad from the get-go, as we’re currently hiring across 10+ roles

  • We’re a tight-knit, intense team, from which you'll learn a ton and have ownership

  • Work with seasoned second-time founders and operators 

💎 <u>Responsibilities</u>

  • Develop a strong understanding of the Slope product suite and value proposition in order to represent the Slope brand in front of candidates

  • Manage our talent brand and public presence as an employer 

  • Be the primary point of contact for all candidates from first email to close and help iterate towards a tight-knit, world class candidate experience 

  • Own, build out, and organize our candidate ATS

  • Train interviewers and build a culture of recruiting excellence

  • “Be the “glue” between Slope’s teams and candidates, managing the full-cycle recruiting process from sourcing to coordinating. Ensure teams are aligned on what they are looking for in each role, and help bring the right candidates for each role”

📈 <u>Requirements</u>

  • 4+ years of recruiting experience preferably at a fast-growth startup or agency focused on startup recruiting

  • A love of being in front of and continuously learning from candidates

  • Have sourced a wide range of roles, both technical and non-technical 

  • Highly organized and able to prioritize shifting workloads and responsibilities effectively. We are growing fast, with new roles/needs being created quickly, with candidates coming from all types of company and personal channels, so your role would be key in keeping us coordinated

  • Ability to hunt for the best talent, and find them no matter what, whether it means going to Github projects and finding the top contributors, finding second-degree connections to people on LinkedIn, push the team for internal referrals, and convince great people who might not be actively looking for opportunities

  • Top communication skills - able to professionally interact with candidates 

  • Grit - we’re growing very quickly and as first recruiting hire you’ll have to pound the pavement and do what it takes to get it done. 

  • Entrepreneurial - be scrappy, resourceful,  autonomous, low maintenance. We have no processes in place 

  • Excellent communication skills, prioritization and the ability to navigate competing demands 

  • Strong team player and ability to succeed in fast-paced, rapidly changing environment, while maintaining high levels of operational rigor, problem solving, business acumen, and positive attitude

  • Enthusiastic team player with a strong work ethic. No job is too big or too small

🚀 <u>Bonus points </u>

  • Background working at a payments/lending fintech startup
