WHO WE ARE

Postmates enables anyone to have just about anything on-demand. We pioneered the on-demand space and currently serve 3500+ cities with a fleet of more than 350,000 Postmates and the largest network of merchants in the US. We’re changing the landscape of commerce by making cities our warehouses, providing the delivery infrastructure, and connecting our customers to any product, anywhere, anytime. Postmates isn’t just an app, it’s a way of life and a part of pop culture. We are the O.G. of on-demand and we’ve given people a new superpower — the ability to Postmate anything from anywhere. We’re building a movement to make Postmates a verb: Postmate it.

WHAT YOU WILL DO

Recruiting is a core strategic driver of Postmates’ success. We're looking for a Technical Recruiting Lead to join our team in San Francisco. The right person for this role will be comfortable in an "all hands on deck" environment, loves tackling challenges, and can thrive in a startup culture. This role is all about bringing on brilliant talent while maintaining our culture as we grow super fast.

You will run the engineering recruitment process from start to finish, including working with management to define required skill sets, optimizing processes, reporting on progress and insights, interviewing candidates, and closing offers. This role requires that you be highly proactive in sourcing and recruiting the best -- posting a job description and seeing what happens won’t come close to cutting it. You’ll also be leading and scaling a team of talented Technical Recruiters and Sourcers along the way.

OUR REQUIREMENTS
  • 7+ years of recruiting experience in-house or at an agency, preferably including start-up experience. Bonus points if you’ve worked in the on-demand space. 
  • 2+ years of proven success building and managing a high-performing team of recruiters
  • Define consistent data-driven hiring metrics and goals, and ensure targets are met. Must have metrics to demonstrate your success.
  • Experience you can speak to regarding the relationships you’ve built with hiring teams and technical leadership
  • Create and execute innovative sourcing strategies and recruiting campaigns 
  • Direct sourcing experience with a demonstrated ability to build a pipeline of qualified candidates for a variety of positions at different levels of the organization.
  • Knowledge of technical jargon and skill sets, as well as an understanding of how software is built and maintained.
  • Strong interpersonal skills and extensive experience conducting interviews and optimizing for a stellar candidate experience.
  • Experience coaching and providing feedback to interviewers and hiring managers and optimizing processes.
  • Great selling and closing skills with a data-driven approach to the full cycle of recruiting within a competitive market
  • Outstanding communication skills: written and verbal.
  • Knowledgeable with Application Tracking Systems. We use Greenhouse.io so that’s a strong plus.
  • A passion for technology, startups, and Postmates.
  • Sense of humor and a strong EQ required.

An Insider's view of Postmates

What's something quirky about your company?

We take a humanistic approach when designing our employee event programming to show the similarities that exist between cultures. We strive to build a community with a shared ethos of caring for our world and conceptualizing ways in which we can contribute to the betterment of it.

Suzette

Engagement & Culture Events Coordinator

How does the company support your career growth?

I once read that “growth and comfort don’t coexist” and Postmates lives by it. From day one at Postmates, I felt challenged and have been given projects that impact the business. I’ve had to flex technical muscles that I have never used and it’s exciting because I’m developing into a more well-rounded engineer which only enhances my career growth.

Software Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Instead of assigning work/tasks to my team, we operate by having the team identify what they think are the problems that we need to be solving today, and how that will scale or change over the next few years then align those with company priorities. This forces my team to be more creative in how they approach their work on a day to day basis.

Infrastructure Lead

What are some social events your company does?

Postmates puts emphasis on building connection and community, through both professional and personal interactions, to maintain our culture — and our mental wellness particularly in these difficult, unprecedented times. This including (now virtual) Happy Hours, Winesday on Wednesdays, cultural celebrations, volunteer events, and so much more.
