Our ideal hire has already successfully recruited at scaling technology startups (or agency) and is eager to take on the challenge of rapidly growing our company. Our recruiters are typically strong relationship managers with experience influencing both candidates and hiring teams to make well-informed, data-backed decisions, as well as strong sourcers who know how to engage with a broad talent pool in engineering, capturing the attention of strong software engineers in other companies.

  • Source qualified candidates, review resumes, and pre-screen candidates while moving the interview process forward in a timely manner
  • Drive offer approval, extension, and negotiation
  • Effectively communicate Gusto’s mission and culture, and help candidates understand impact and value to the engineering culture
  • Proactively contribute to improving Recruiting at Gusto by challenging the status quo and providing useful suggestions for improvement

Here’s what we're looking for:

  • 4+ years of experience as a full­-cycle recruiter with focus on Engineering Recruiting
  • Technology knowledge (different coding languages/technical stacks/terminology)
  • Knowledgeable with ATS system (Greenhouse) - you believe in meticulous candidate notes and know that excellent database hygiene leads to accurate reporting
  • Flexible and excited to help build something awesome and share it with the world
  • Bold and self-aware, clear communicator with empathy towards the people you work with
  • Exceptional project management skills, independent problem-solving skills, attention to detail, flexibility, and ability to collaborate with others and to work in a fast-paced environment
  • Start­up experience is a huge plus

Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted at $61,000-$128,000/year in Denver & most remote locations, and $77,000-$151,000/year for San Francisco & New York. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
