Talent at Tessian
Nothing is more important to Tessian than the people joining our team, and given how rapidly we are growing, we now need a Recruiter to spearhead our recruiting in the U.S. 
This role is critical to ensuring that we find and recruit the very best, and also provide them with an amazing candidate experience. You’ll manage and own our applicant tracking system (Lever) and ensure that coordination of the candidate experience is seamless for everyone involved. You'll be critical in ensuring we're on-track with all our internal hiring processes, liaising with both candidates and hiring managers to keep our recruitment pipelines moving forwards.

Things you'll be doing from day one include:

  • Maintaining our relationships with external recruiters, using their support where needed but always ensuring alignment with our values and priorities

Things you'll get involved in over time:

    • Preparing data on applicant numbers and rates of conversion at the stages of the interview pipeline, and feeding this back to Hiring Managers
    • Leading recruiting projects such as employer branding, recruitment marketing, college recruiting, community outreach, sourcing tools
    • Partnering with leaders to develop standard formats for our recruiting process at every stage, including screening resumes, interview questions, etc.
    • Hiring and supervising a Recruiting Coordinator
    • Driving continual improvement into our hiring processes

  • Has specific experience hiring for B2B SaaS sales roles 
  • Can find their way around Lever
