People /
Hummingbird is a platform for managing anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing operations. We are motivated by the shared mission of fighting financial crime. Our work helps fight terrible crimes like human trafficking, political corruption, weapons sales, and drug cartels.

We are a customer-obsessed team. We love building and shipping great products. Our customers are financial crime fighters who are often drowning in paperwork and bureaucracy. We set a high bar for our work, challenge our assumptions, seek diverse opinions, and support each other to do great work.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.

About the role
As Head of Recruiting, you will own our initiatives to build the Hummingbird team. You will play an integral role in building out our team strategy, creating a strong recruiting process, and fostering a smart and inclusive culture. You will own all recruiting, including technical, business operations, and executive hires.

One of the things we love about working on Hummingbird is the chance to celebrate the heroic work of financial crime fighters! Your work will help us do this by building a world-class team.
