Talent Acquisition Specialist (Tech)
Memrise gives people learning superpowers. We aim to help anyone achieve confident, real-world language skills in just a few short months; our product is innovative and fun, and it delivers the goods.
This year, we won the "App of the Year 2017" at the Google Play Awards. With near zero marketing spend we’ve grown organically to tens of millions of users, and we’re already profitable with a team of 57 (with 30+ nationalities).
We’re now looking to build out our engineering team to take Memrise to the next level. The goal in the coming years is to become the dominant product and pre-eminent brand in global language learning.
As a result, we are looking for a tech recruiter to join the team. (Salary: £30-40,000).
Your mission will be to find and hire the best people out there, so you should have some experience in recruiting, preferably in-house at a fast growing tech company. You will have great people skills, be confident talking to anyone and able to put across how unique and exciting an opportunity it is to join us.
Ideally you will have some or all of the following:
- In-house technical recruiting experience
- Expert sourcing skills
- Critical thought and analysis to select the right people
- Great communication skills
- Highly Organised, with great attention to detail
- High level of literacy & numeracy
- An in-depth understanding of technology/apps/software development
- Bonus points for having a real interest in languages and language learning!
If you aren’t completely confident that you fit our exact criteria, please get in touch immediately with a CV and cover letter. Humility is a wonderful thing and we’re not interested in hiring ‘rockstars’ or ‘ninjas’. And we're at least as interested in character as in talent.
