Change.org is searching for a mid-level or Senior Technical Recruiter to own end-to-end talent processes for our hiring teams. This is a 6 month fixed-term contract role working in-house and embedded in our talent team. 

We’re a social impact business (a public benefit company), and the largest tech platform focused on civic action in the world with 100m monthly users, 50,000 campaigns launched on the site every month, 150 staff, and a new revenue model that has grown by 500% in 2 years. We’re growing quickly, and our users win campaigns for change once every hour. From strengthening hate crime legislation in South Africa; fighting corruption in Indonesia, Italy, and Brazil; to fighting violence against women in India.

We are looking for an experienced Technical Recruiter who is great at finding, attracting and hiring high performing candidates at scale and has a passion for expanding our platform to mobilize hundreds of millions of people to take deeper civic action.

As a key member of our Recruiting team, you’ll own role inception to close and an efficient hiring process that consists of sourcing a diverse candidate pool, evaluating early stage candidates, coordinating with hiring teams and delivering offers to top talent.  

You’re a perfect fit for this role if your superpower is managing through context and owning end-to-end talent recruitment processes within high-growth environments.

Outcomes

  • Fully own, start to finish, recruiting processes for external roles.
  • Fill 6 to 10 priority roles within the contract period.
  • Build and own a robust and diverse pipeline of candidates ensuring timely and professional responses to candidates using LinkedIn Recruiter and Hiretual (we will provide you with seats on both platforms). Ensure each pipeline includes a minimum of 60% sourced candidates from underrepresented communities. 
  • Proactively communicate updates and provide weekly reports to interview teams.
  • Partner with hiring managers and interviewers in order to ensure efficient progress on open roles.
  • Craft engaging messaging to outreach for external roles.
  • Embrace and become an expert in the Change.org Talent Philosophy which is centered around efficiency, transparency, intentionality, DEI and our mission.
  • Rapidly iterate on and unblock hiring processes to ensure exceptional candidate experiences.
  • Consult with hiring managers and partner with teams on hosting role kick-offs, weekly syncs and role retros. 
  • Make friends, have fun and enjoy being a part of an exceptional team of human beings.

The most important capabilities for the role are:

  • Area expertise in tech company recruiting: You’ve successfully built pipelines for and filled engineering, product and analytics roles and have a strong ability to identify and pitch top talent.
  • Learning, innovation and proactive approach: You are skilled at developing new and more efficient ways of getting this done. You’re proactive and have the ability to predict blockers in the talent process before they arise.
  • People skills and intentional communication: You are used to-and crave-working with a diverse set of individuals. You communicate clearly, promptly and professionally with team members, hiring teams and candidates alike. You thrive in a high-feedback environment and believe feedback is a gift. 
  • Pipeline management: You are a role model for others in how to build and manage pipelines for multiple roles at a time. You’re an expert at prioritization and execution when it comes to sourcing and attracting talent.
  • Organizational Growth and External communication: You have experience evangelizing and pitching opportunities to wide audiences (e.g. LinkedIn) and are an expert as sourcing and closing candidates.  

  • Additional capabilities we’re excited about: 
  • Talent acquisition experience in a mission-driven organization
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in tech experience- either in sourcing work or advocacy  

  • Target experience: 
  • 3+ years experience in talent acquisition 
  • 2+ year of experience specifically focused on engineering and/or product roles
  • 2+ years in-house, internet based startup experience


It’s rare that a candidate has a ‘perfect’ set of relevant experiences, we do not expect this, and all candidates are encouraged to apply, even if you are missing some of the items in the list above.

Interested? Great! Here's what you should know:

This is a fixed term position for 6 months, and while we do strongly prefer folks living in San Francisco, New York or Victoria, BC, we are open to folks on the East or West Coast as the role will be remote for the foreseeable future. Our team is high impact, low ego, and has an amazing culture to be part of.

Change.org is a global company, and salaries are adjusted for cost of labor in each city. For example, an annual salary of a mid-level tech recruiter is $115,000 in San Francisco and would be $111,500 in New York. An annual salary of a senior tech recruiter is $140,000 in San Francisco and $134,000 in New York. In exceptional circumstances, we may offer below the listed salary for high potential candidates with less experience, or above it for candidates with significantly more experience.

We anticipate moving very quickly and our evaluation process is as follows:
 - 45 minute Zoom call with our Senior Technical Recruiter 
- 2 hour long Zoom interview with Head of Talent, Director of Talent, Senior Technical Recruiter & Chief of Staff
- Offer

We especially encourage applicants of different backgrounds, cultures, genders, experiences, abilities and perspectives to apply. We’re actively working to increase the diversity of experience and perspectives on our team and are looking for someone who can help continue to lead that process. 

Change.org is committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace. Everyone says this, right? Well, we mean it - we invest in serious programs to bring in and support women and people of color, we have in-person onboarding experiences and affinity groups to help everyone feel included, we regularly celebrate the heritage of all staff, and we believe strongly in consistent, fair, and transparent salary scales to help level the playing field. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, national origin, or disability or veteran status.
