About the Opportunity

Imagine you are the first and last person a candidate sees (or virtually sees during COVID times) before they have to make a life-changing decision. What does that experience look like? How do they feel throughout the process? Did we wow them with our personality, organization, and thoughtfulness? 

This is one of the most important roles throughout the entire company. We are at a pivotal moment of a lot of growth. And it’s a great opportunity to connect with departments, leaders, and co-workers the average employee doesn’t have exposure to. You’ll learn, grow, and be involved not just with candidate coordination but what does a global candidate experience look like? Talent marketing and branding? Meetups and events? Presentation and interview training? Project management, diversity, social media… the sky’s the limit on what this role could support. Come join us!
