We’re looking to grow our Recruitment team and are seeking a positive, resourceful recruiter who has a background in technical recruitment and/or technical sourcing. Reporting to our Talent Acquisition Manager, you’ll bring experience creatively sourcing, qualifying and maintaining relationships with candidates. You must thrive in the hunt, and be focused on networking closely within the industry to identify the right talent and companies to target. The right candidate will possess a "can-do" attitude and be willing to hit the ground (and phones!) running, and have the skills necessary to outwardly display our brand in their talent acquisition process. Most importantly, you love working with technical candidates and teams and are excited about developing your recruitment career within a high growth startup like SURE.

What you’ll do:

  • Full cycle technical recruitment for Backend Engineers, Frontend Engineers, QA, Product Management, Project Management, and more as our team expands
  • Conduct candidate calls, assess company fit and basic skill level, gather essential candidate data, schedule interviews, gather feedback, and extend offers. 
  • Manage a smooth and speedy candidate process with a commitment to clear communication and feedback to the candidate. 
  • Ensure hiring manager and team preparedness during the interview process and that interviews are conducted efficiently and professionally.
  • Communicate and work with all hiring managers in Product & Engineering departments
  • Responsible for sourcing candidates through networking, internet postings, university relations, etc.
  • Source candidates through job postings, social media, and other creative channels.
  • Conduct candidate calls, skill level, manage offer process, salary recommendations, and offer acceptance/declines.
  • Help make us better! The opportunity to make change, process improve, and implement your ideas is encouraged!

What we’re looking for:

  • 3+ years of recruiting for engineering teams
  • Experience with innovative direct sourcing techniques with the ability to build and maintain a network of top-tier technical talent
  • A passion for creating the best candidate experience possible 
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills with no hesitation for cold calling, social media, networking, and seeking referrals to bring in top talent
  • An interest in networking and attending local recruitment and industry events on behalf of SURE 
  • Team-oriented, collaborative nature: We're a small, fast-growing team, and everyone needs to pull for each other, share best practices, and take on team projects to make the entire organization better
  • Experience in a tech startup is a plus
  • Experience using Lever as an ATS is a plus

An Insider's view of Sure

How does your team reward individual success?

We have a really kudos-giving culture (++'s, shoutouts, etc.). Each engineer's strong suits are discovered, and the work is arranged around what we know well or are excited to learn. For me, the biggest reward is getting to do work that I love to do, which happens to be very math-centered. We get to become subject matter experts in areas we enjoy.

Lena

Backend Engineer

What does your typical day look like?

The best part of being a marketer is that no two days are exactly alike. In fact, it changes by minute as I pivot from content to design to PR. However, one thing remains consistent from day-to-day — the motivation I get from the Sure team to continuously strive for greatness. Everyday I’m surrounded by amazing people that produce incredible work.

Brenna

Head of Marketing

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has exploded since being here at Sure. Everyday I am given in the opportunity to work on ground breaking products. Whether it’s refactoring an existing paradigm or innovating on a new idea, I’m given the tools and team members to go above and beyond what I knew was possible. For this, my growth is limitless.

John

Product Designer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The most creative ideas are fostered in environments where team members have a strong sense of ownership over their projects, feel safe enough to be vulnerable, and challenging the status quo is encouraged and rewarded. It’s my job to make sure that these elements are a part of everyday life at Sure.

Dan

Chief Product Officer

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our Partnerships Team is constantly coming up with innovations that not only focus on our clients' needs, but the big picture of Sure. These ideas influence product decisions, which our leadership team is quick to implement, ultimately helping us continue to grow smoothly. We are able to support business progression through collaborative teamwork.
