Senior Technical Recruiter

| Greater NYC Area

Squarespace is known for our innovative user interfaces, forward-looking use of modern technologies, beautifully designed software...and the people behind it all. As part of our recruiting team, you will be responsible for sourcing, evaluating and closing technical candidates, and for guiding them through a smooth and memorable interviewing experience. You will also help refine and evolve our hiring processes and practices as we scale towards 1000+ employees. You are innovative in your approach, preferring to experiment with new and unexpected tactics, rather than stick to traditional best-practices. 

This opportunity will stretch your skills and leverage your talents in creative ways. If you combine a passion for technology and outstanding recruitment skills, we offer the opportunity to work directly with senior-level management and top-flight product and engineering talent. By connecting candidates to Squarespace’s core values and product vision, you will be a driving force in building the premier technical team crafting the future of the web. This position reports to our Team Lead, Technical Recruiting. 

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Provide an efficient, high-touch experience for every candidate from application to offer, acting as candidate advocate, evaluating skill level, and driving the interview and offer processes including reference checks, compensation recommendations, and closing of candidates
  • Develop and execute hiring strategy for top engineering and design talent, and meet quarterly hiring targets
  • Design and implement hiring processes optimized for scale and high growth
  • Source active and passive candidates through various channels and mediums

QUALIFICATIONS

  • 5+ years of experience with full-cycle recruiting and a track record of success within technical recruiting (either agency or internal) 
  • You're an excellent sourcer and can spot the not so obvious candidates (sourcing engineers out of top companies with degrees from great schools is easy)
  • You keep up-to-date with the latest engineering trends, frameworks, programming languages, and libraries
  • You're not afraid to dig into the data to identify inconsistencies, anomalies, and roadblocks
  • You stay up-to-date with new recruiting tools; how can we work smarter?
  • You love process and are always striving to optimize and improve
  • You're a great listener and communicator; you're not intimidated when speaking with senior engineers

An Insider's view of Squarespace

What are some social events your company does?

In the past we've had trivia nights, talent shows, and video game tournaments. My background is actually in theatre, so amazingly had the opportunity of taking to the microphone and hosting some of the events here.

Jose Paz

Community Manager

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Our team’s mission is to configure, integrate, automate, and report on all HR systems. This means we are constantly trying to do things no one has ever done before. Some of the challenges we regularly encounter are hacking together system integrations, implementing controls to ensure data integrity, and manual task automation for our users.

Paul

People Tech Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

As the Data Engineering team has grown, I've become a team lead and learning lots of new technologies, such as Postgres and Airflow.

Polina

Senior Software Engineer

What are some social events your company does?

The company holiday party is a pretty big social event. Each location has one and I’ve crashed three of the four parties in Ireland as well. At this point, if I don’t go to the Dublin holiday party, I might get messages asking if I’m okay.
