Overview

We’re looking for multiple leaders for our pods. This unique role involves complex coordination of people and resources to apply the most effective tactics and strategies available, to deliver against quarterly hiring goals. You will partner with senior stakeholders to plan, prioritize and sequence effort into a defined rhythm of business, which you will conduct. You will guide the delivery of the team and help multiply their output using your extensive experience and ability. As this role requires leadership rather than management, it would suit senior individual contributors or those who have managed smaller teams that are looking to take the next step. This role provides a path into larger team management if desired, and the position is open to those from a Recruiting, Sourcing and even Operations background. 

Responsibilities

  • Partner with Hiring Managers and teams to design effective hiring strategies
  • Lead the prioritisation, sequencing and execution of creative sourcing strategies against prioritised requisitions
  • Encourage world-class, diverse talent pipelines from across the globe
  • Advocate an enviable candidate experience through attentive management and communication. 
  • Drive the recruitment process from end to end across your pod, removing blockers and driving for just in time hires
  • Champion the Kraken culture, ensuring candidates are aligned to our mission and values
  • Maintain data integrity and standards across tools and systems, reporting up and down as part of a set rhythm
  • Participate in major improvement projects to upgrade our hiring infrastructure

Competencies

  • Significant recruitment experience from a top-tier technology company against ruthless competition
  • Experienced mentor, leader or manager of small-medium sized teams
  • Exceptional business partnership and stakeholder management skills; able to drive planning and prioritisation sessions across multiple managers
  • Deep appreciation for the fundamentals of talent acquisition, but creative and inquisitive when considering modern tactics
  • Highly organized, operationally astute and data-oriented
  • Influential written and verbal communication
  • Sensitive to the challenges and needs of growing business, especially those of a scaling start-up disrupting an industry
  • Empathetic, emotionally intelligent, motivated and passionate
  • Highly resilient, relentless and cheerful in the face of challenges

We’re powered by people from around the world with their own unique and diverse experiences. We value all Krakenites and their talents, contributions, and perspectives, regardless of their background. We encourage you to apply for roles where you don't fully meet the listed requirements, especially if you're passionate or knowledgable about crypto!

As an equal opportunity employer we don’t tolerate discrimination or harassment of any kind. Whether that’s based on race, ethnicity, age, gender identity, citizenship, religion, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy, veteran status or any other protected characteristic as outlined by federal, state or local laws.
