The Talent Acquisition Team is accountable for:
- The number of successful hires over time, where a successful hire is defined as someone who receives a positive performance evaluation 12 months after joining the company.
- The cost per hire, though we’re very open to using agencies in return for a lower time-to-fill.
- The value of our employer brand, as measured by the awareness and perceived attractiveness of our brand among relevant talent pools.
- The satisfaction of our customers and stakeholders. This includes managers designing their organizations, determining their needs for talent, writing job descriptions, creating assessment plans, and assessing candidates. Candidates who should receive a positive brand impression each and every time. Interviewers who need smooth logistics, clear objectives, training, feedback, and guidance on processes.
To deliver the results described above, we:
- Together with business leaders and managers: define the company’s needs for talent globally across several offices and remote locations. We play an advisory role to hiring-managers, helping them create better organizational designs, define their needs for talent more clearly and realistically, write more effective job descriptions, and create more efficient assessment plans.
- Source talent across all channels. Our priorities are speed and quality of hiring, and we aggressively use recruiting agencies where applicable.
- Assess talent. For some assessments we are responsible directly ourselves. For others we guide hiring-managers and interviewers through making accurate and efficient decisions.
- Design and operate all processes related to talent acquisition. Including but not limited to: processes for describing organizational designs and hiring plans, prioritizing open positions, managing job descriptions, sourcing and assessing candidates, scheduling, making decisions, making offers, closing candidates, and transitioning to onboarding.
- Own the relationships with candidates.
- Train all internal stakeholders in recruiting-themed skills.
- Build our employer brand through defining requirements for all recruiting-themed public communications. Some we execute ourselves. For others we engage the help of design, engineering, and marketing teams.
Our industry and business are growing very quickly. We have excellent product-market fit, a long list of expansion plans, and must dramatically grow the size of all teams.
