Full Cycle Recruiter @ Hustle Hunters

About the Company

Hustle Hunters is a recruiting firm that supports early stage startups as they build out their foundational teams. We place across functions (sales, success, marketing, engineering, operations, product, etc.). We are a very small team and like to balance collaboration with autonomy. We focus on equity in our process and are constantly learning and working to improve our practices and invest in DEIBJ resources on behalf of our clients. Much of that learning is around understanding how traditionally underrepresented groups thrive, so that we can coach startups towards removing potential barriers and centering equity to bring on the best teammates. We partner closely with our clients across the early (Seed - Series A mostly) startup space, and get to be a core part of their early growth. Many current clients are also impact-driven, with the majority founded by womxn (current clients include Searchlight.ai (YC19), Strongsuit.co, User Interviews).

Core Values:

  • We’re solving hard problems and will use our GRIT to keep grinding despite setbacks, staying motivated by our mission and the people we work alongside
  • We prioritize MOVEMENT, knowing we’ll make mistakes, have wins, iterate and learn along the way
  • We are all HUMAN. We practice this understanding leaning on empathy with ourselves, teammates, partners, candidates, and others
  • We are always LEARNING, building our individual and collective knowledge
  • We center EQUITY as the foundation of our work

About the Role

Our clients are doing big, innovative things and need amazing talent to support their goals. We’re growing our team and looking for a full cycle recruiter who will scope, source, coach and present candidates to these clients as part of their path to success. This person will work on roles already part of the Hustle Hunters client base (healthy pipeline of current roles will be handed to this person upon onboarding), as well as any clients and roles they source and bring into the business. This person will work closely alongside the founder and other recruiters towards optimizing practices and tools across the business, but have autonomy in terms of work schedule and process. Building relationships with clients and candidates, and especially translating (and potentially challenging) a client’s vision into the sourcing process will also be a core part of this role. Open roles we work on might include entry level, mid-level and senior-level candidates across Sales, Engineering, Product, Marketing, Design, Customer Support, Customer Success, Operations, etc. This role reports directly to the Founder and will be working towards milestones relating to both volume and quality of candidates sourced, as well as overall successful placements and revenue targets. Strong opportunities for growth professionally as the business continues to expand.

Day in the life

  • Team meeting sharing insights, problem solving blockers as a group, reporting on individual metrics and capacity
  • Conversation with hiring manager to confirm details for a new role you’re working, coaching them as applicable
  • Diving into the ATS and personal connections to find initial pool of potential candidates for this new role
  • Sourcing in LinkedIn Recruiter and reaching out to additional candidates for one of the few roles on your desk
  • A couple of phone screens
  • Texting a candidate a pump up gif and quick notes before they go into an interview
  • Submitting a panel of top candidates to a client
  • Collaborating with founder to adjust business practices and process in light of industry trends and insights you’re noticing
  • Listen to presentation from teammate about relevant DEIBJ-related topic of their choosing
  • Ensure ATS is updated with the day’s notes and activity

Skills and Experience

As we work to create broad and diverse pipelines of candidates and help them land well and succeed in the startup space, we recognize that there are many paths that could lead someone to being successful in this role. We value all experience (educational, lived, professional, etc.) and encourage anyone who is passionate about this opportunity to apply - regardless of whether or not they meet the listed criteria.

We’d like to see at least a couple of these things:

  • Experience as a full cycle recruiter
  • Experience building trust, community, sourcing, recruiting amongst traditionally underrepresented groups in the tech space (ex - Black, Indigenous, LGBTQ+ candidates) 
  • Experience in-house at a startup
  • Experience working with clients as part of a recruiting firm/agency
  • Mission and values alignment
