A BIT ABOUT US
Lever was founded seven years ago to tackle the most strategic challenge that companies face: how to recruit and hire top talent. We’re building the next generation of hiring software that companies like Netflix, Yelp, Cirque du Soleil, Shopify, and Eventbrite rely on to grow their teams. We've rethought the talent acquisition paradigm and are the innovation leaders in our space and looking for the right people to join us as we scale.
We’re extraordinarily proud of the company we’ve built so far (not to mention humbled to be recognized as the #1 place to work in San Francisco, as well as a top workplace in the entire United States). Our people are Lever’s biggest competitive advantage and we’ll continue investing in our “Leveroos” and people-first culture.
At Lever, we know how important hiring is to each and every company. We also know how challenging it can be to implement products or software when you don’t know first-hand how they’re built. Not only will you have the power to set up customers for success, but you’ll learn the ins and outs of how our products are built, why they’re built, and how we strive to help the world hire with conviction.
You’ll have the opportunity to understand what is arguably the most important function at each company--hiring--and the ability to be extremely familiar with the product and teach our customers the best way to use it. You’ll be in the trenches of innovation and providing feedback from your customers about what’s working, what’s not, and what they’d like to see. You’ll learn what it’s like to impact at growth-stage startup, and nowhere is that more felt than on the Essential Implementation team.
The best part is that you won’t do any of it alone. You’ll be working alongside other seasoned Implementation Specialists who have helped build and grow the Customer Success function at Lever. You’ll be located in our new office in San Francisco and will experience very limited travel, empowering you to learn from your peers best practices that have set them up for success.
