Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.
Reporting to our VP People, we’re looking for a Director of Talent to help us reach our vision by leading the way to recruit the best talent around the globe.
About the role
- Location: Remote
- Full time
As the Director, Talent, you’ll …
- Develop a vision and strategy for how Webflow will attract a high performing, diverse, and kind team as it scales from 175 to many multiples of that over time
- Optimize efficiency of our hiring efforts through data informed insights, partnerships, and feedback cycles with many company stakeholders (hiring managers, talent team, etc.)
- Lead hiring plan efforts, and use this plan to approve opening roles to forecast and meet hiring goals
- Create a top candidate experience from employer brand and candidate-centric web presence through programs that keep candidates excited and engaged with Webflow until hired
- Hire, develop, coach, and train talent team members for world-class engagement and performance in order to meet recruiting priorities

- Manage relationships with external vendors such as independent consultants, search firms, and software tools
- Improve the overall candidate experience through proactive quantitative and qualitative feedback cycles
- Partner with executive search firms and CEO when hiring key company leaders
That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly.
And this isn’t just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities.About you
You’ll thrive as Director, Talent if you:
- Have scaled and lead high performing talent teams at companies that move intentionally fast
- Are an experienced people manager who maintains a servant leadership mentality
- Are skilled at partnering with organizational leaders to develop hiring plans, understand business changes, and shifting priorities
- Love data and efficiency, and are able to build systems to manage both

- Believe in the power of distributed teams, and have experience with global recruitment efforts
- Are a thoughtful, direct, and kind communicator, both verbal and written
If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of a role’s requirements.About us
