Talent Acquisition Lead (100% Remote)
United States /
At Close, we're building the sales communication and collaboration platform of the future. With our roots as the very first sales CRM to include built-in calling, we're leading the industry in sales automation—helping companies to close more deals, faster than ever. Since our founding in 2013, we've grown to become a profitable, 100% globally distributed team that is dedicated to building a product our customers love.
We’re hiring our first Talent Acquisition Lead to join our People Ops team of two. We care deeply about the candidate experience and are looking to bring someone onto our team that is solely responsible for all aspects of recruiting as we grow our team of ~55.
You should have a commitment to integrity, quality, friendly-strength, and team building. You have a proven track record of successfully recruiting for a remote, SaaS or tech company. Our team is heavily engineering focused; you should have the technical aptitude to recruit for these types of roles in addition to marketing, sales, support and success.
You have a deep understanding and awareness of the market and how to connect with top talent. You showcase a high level of discernment, sense of urgency, exceptional attention to detail and have strong follow-up and follow-through. People know you for your winning attitude, excellent communication skills and approachable nature.
You are comfortable working remotely as part of a small team with a high level of autonomy. You can devise your own schedule and effectively manage your workload based on the company priorities.
You will be the main point of contact for all candidates and team members involved in recruiting - anticipating needs on both sides is a critical part of this role. You care about the candidate experience and are always looking for ways to improve the process.
You’ll report directly to the Director of People Ops and work closely with hiring managers.
