Medium is a place for curious minds to read, write, and engage with the original ideas of the day. It’s home to the world’s writers, philosophers, thinkers, and artists, coming together in one balanced ecosystem that champions thoughtful discourse.
We believe that people are the key to success for any business and exploring possibilities with a new company should be an experience, not a process. We prioritize finding highly qualified people who also contribute to our company culture. Recruiting is deeply integrated into the company’s values; that’s why we’re looking for someone who believes in our mission — to build a place for thoughtful ideas on the internet — and inspires candidates to do the same.
We are growing our recruiting team, and we’re looking for a Recruiting Coordinator to join the team. As our Recruiting Coordinator, you will work closely with our recruiters to identify, engage, and manage candidates from a variety of backgrounds to build our team. You will be successful in this role if you are optimistic, creative, organized, flexible, and have a real passion for details and a deep dedication to diversity. We’ve made some progress, but we aren’t yet satisfied. We still have a way to go, and you’ll be a part of it.
This will be a challenging and rewarding opportunity, and we’re excited to see who joins us next. Will it be you?
What will you do?
- You will be the keeper of our recruitment process and metrics
- You will balance the need to personalize each candidate’s experience with our commitment to managing bias
- You will partner directly with internal teams and candidates to schedule interviews, by phone, Google Hangout, and in-person
- You will help refine our recruiting process and contribute ideas on how we can be more efficient as we scale
- You will collaborate with a bi-coastal team, and use and develop your excellent communication skills
- You will act as an ambassador for Medium as the first point of contact for candidates.
- You have at least two years of coordination experience with a search firm or in-house recruiting team
- You have experience working with and building operational practices with recruiting partners and hiring managers
- You have experience (and enjoy!) engaging candidates and internal partners
- You have worked in a team environment before
- You have experience using an Applicant Tracking System and Google calendars
Sound like you? We’d love to hear from you.
