Technical Recruiter

Leverage your substantial skillset to help us refine and execute our technical recruiting strategy and hit the ground running to help us hit aggressive growth goals both in Toronto and abroad!  You’ll use your domain expertise to grow our Engineering, Product, and Design teams while helping to evolve Lever’s product. This is the chance to expand your skills in a role that blends recruiting with user research, process iteration, and cross-functional partnership across the organization, while helping build the teams that build Lever, one by one. 

Recruiting at Lever is a true partnership between recruiters and hiring teams. Given our product, every person at Lever has a deep understanding of and investment in hiring. We’re looking for someone who values managing strong partnerships with their hiring teams, constantly evolving and improving how we hire, creating fantastic candidate experiences, and invests in upleveling themselves and their teams. In this role you’ll be a thought leader and help shape the product that is at the forefront of innovating how organizations hire.

We are the meta-team recruiting for a company that builds tools for recruiters.

We don’t view recruiting as a factory assembly line; it’s our company’s most strategic effort and should be collaborative, and above all, human. We also partner closely with our Employee Experience team, and we'll look to you to forge that partnership even more in our Toronto space.
