About You

  • You have at least 10 years of recruiting experience in the tech sector—including executive and technical recruiting experience—and a track record (5+ years) growing and leading teams.
  • You’re a trusted talent partner to senior leaders. You are an advocate for creativity and out-of-the-box thinking to drive the best decisions. You can unify leaders across a common vision and garner support from cross functional leaders to drive recruiting initiatives.

  • You are data-oriented. You track pipeline health to balance your priorities and set hiring manager expectations. You interpret data to create insights that inspire improvement in recruiting process and candidate experience.
  • You are resourceful. You research issues proactively, come to the table with a point of view, and gather feedback from the relevant stakeholders to pressure test your thinking.
  • You are persistently helpful and transparent—to candidates, hiring managers, and your team. You know that your impact is a product of your ability to enable others’ success.

Things You Will Do

  • Craft Zapier’s next-gen talent acquisition vision, strategy, and roadmap, in collaboration with your team and Zapier’s executive leadership.
  • Scale and continuously improve your team’s end-to-end recruiting effort, including talent branding, candidate experience, operations, forecasting, and related training for Zapiens involved with hiring.
  • Serve as a trusted talent partner to Zapier’s executive team, and especially Zapier’s operations team, to create and maintain the company’s global hiring plan.
  • Inspire and mentor your team to do their best work and to develop their careers, while fostering an empowering and inclusive culture.
