Head of Tech Recruiting (m/f/x)

Remote (Europe timezone)

We are looking for an experienced and ambitious Head of Tech Recruiting to lead our tech talent acquisition/ sourcing efforts across Europe.

At UPPER, our mission is to enable companies and top product & tech professionals to successfully work together in a future-proof, trusted setup.

As Head of Tech Recruiting, amongst other things, you will: 

  • Lead talent acquisition. Identify your organization’s needs and work to create and implement an efficient talent acquisition strategy to improve recruitment and business performance.
  • Own talent supply. Plan and forecast staffing needs across the company.
  • Grow the community. Apply strategies to attract candidates to all areas of the business.
  • Own “talent success” for acquisition. Oversee and improve overall candidate experience from “hello” to “live”.
  • Think ahead. Anticipate the organization’s future and work with senior executives to advise on talent acquisition tactics that will help to sustain the company’s success.
  • Build and lead teams. Develop, manage and maintain a highly-skilled team to assist with talent acquisition and development.
  • Stay up to date. Communicate with external sources, i.e. peer organizations to acknowledge any trends in recruitment and markets which could impact the business.
  • Be analytical. Manage and deliver reports and data when/as required.
  • Support product. Collaborate with Product and Marketing to build and market-relevant, talent-oriented tools and software.

About you:

  • You’ve “been there, done that”. You have +3-year proven experience as a Head of Tech Recruiting or similar senior-level HR position in a technical recruiting environment. Yet, you are flexible and open to innovation and changes to the Status Quo.
  • You understand how it works. You have hands-on experience with candidate sourcing, interviewing, and evaluation in tech.
  • You’re a great manager. As part of senior management, you need to be great at leading and overseeing talent acquisition teams.
  • You’re an innovator. Ability to be strategic and tactical when making decisions.
  • You’re a strong believer in data. Analytical and capable of reading data and reports to assess complex information.
  • You’re an excellent communicator. We’re a 100% remote team, and remote without great communication simply doesn’t work. (You typically work in CET ± 3h)
  • You understand technology and software. 
  • You are an excellent coach. You are positive, goal-oriented, and love helping people grow.
  • You’re great at time management. You’ll juggle a variety of fast-moving communication projects, and as a part of a distributed team, you’ll be expected to help your team do the same.
  • You love doing things efficiently. As a part of a growing company, you have an opportunity to make a big impact, and you’re keen to build processes that’ll make your job more efficient over time.

…and what we bring in

  • A vision and mission that is not for PR but truly lived! We are paving the way for how people will work together to build products and software in the future.
  • Attractive compensation package.
  • A top solution with exciting customers that let you gain insights in the product landscape of Europe’s top companies!
