Technical Contract Recruiter

| Chicago

We here at Jellyvision are the proud parents of ​ALEX®​, an interactive employee communications platform that happens to share some DNA (and a sense of humor) with the smash-hit trivia video game YOU DON’T KNOW JACK, created by Jellyvision's founder. ALEX makes navigating tricky decisions—like choosing and using employee benefits or improving your financial wellness—easier, faster, and more helpful, not to mention entertaining. 

 

THAT’S LOVELY... BUT WHAT’S THE JOB?

As we’re continuing to grow, we’re looking to add multiple contract recruiters to our people team.

The duration is slated at 3 months with potential to go longer. We need someone with experience sourcing, engaging and closing the deal with technical talent. Our ideal candidate will be a great problem-solver, well-networked, an amazing judge of character, super organized, diplomatic, data driven, and great with people.

Maintaining and elevating the Jellyvision recruiting brand​. Recruiting at Jellyvision is a high-touch, in depth process – we know we ask a lot of talented, sought after candidates so we want to treat them with the utmost respect and make the process as fun as it can be. As we add sourcing capabilities to our team, we want to do so with the same level of caring and respect for candidates, and the same spirit of fun, warm, human interaction that we strive for in our recruiting practices every day.

Partnering with hiring managers to understand our hiring needs​. It’s important to build strong relationships with the hiring managers and take a consultative approach to finding the perfect candidate.

Conducting candidate screenings and qualification interviews. In this role, you’ll be speaking with lots of candidates and building strong relationships, as well as identifying if they will be a good fit for our roles and providing a phenomenal candidate experience along the way.

WHAT KIND OF PERSON ARE WE LOOKING FOR?​ To be a great fit for this role, we’re looking for someone who is:

  • A true people person​. And we don’t just mean someone who can talk to anyone - being a great listener is actually more important in this role. You need to love learning by Q&A – asking the right questions and then listening carefully to the responses in order to understand what a hiring manager needs, how to work best with a potential recruiting partner, or what a candidate is all about.
     
  • An amazing communicator​. Jellyvision values honest, jargon-free voice that you should feel comfortable using in person, on the phone, and in writing. You will be responsible for communicating both internally and externally with a ton of folks in different roles and you’ll need great communication skills to do it right.
     
  • Agile. In this role you will need to be creative and flexible in your approach to recruiting as well as an outside the box thinker. You know what they say about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. You should be the kind of person who can switch tactics if something isn’t working, and who isn’t afraid to try new things to drum up great candidates.
     
  • Data-Driven​. Having strong analytical, quantitative, logic and reasoning skills are becoming more important within recruiting. We are moving to a model where decisions will be based off data and loving numbers makes it that much easier.
     
  • A master of project and time management​. There are a lot of moving parts in recruiting, so we need a person who won’t be overwhelmed by the volume of candidates and activity that needs to be managed on a daily basis. There will be lots of people and projects vying for your attention, so if you aren’t an efficiency-minded person with a well-developed system for managing your time and candidate contacts you may not enjoy the position.
     

WHAT KIND OF EXPERIENCE SHOULD YOU HAVE?

  • 2+ Years of experience sourcing and recruiting both active and passive talent
  • 2+ years of experience recruiting technical talent
  • Experience with and ideas for diversity recruiting. As we move to a more active model of sourcing candidates, it opens up a myriad of opportunities to source more diverse talent. We’re looking for someone familiar with strategies and tactics to find the best talent by increasing diversity in the talent pipeline.
  • The ideal candidate is someone who has either internally recruited for a company or has worked on the agency side.

ANYTHING ELSE? Yes. We share a commitment to excellence and a desire to work in a comfortable, friendly atmosphere, so we only hire nice, bright, funny people who are willing to work hard. Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think we can be most helpful if our workforce is as diverse in thought, perspective, and culture as the people who use our products. We are looking to add amazing folks to our team who will bring diversity across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital status, disability, gender identity, sex, and country of origin.

 

Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.

Drew

Implementation Expert

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The Product team works with other teams to balance customer needs/user wants in a way that educates, promotes good decision-making and drives sales. We're trying to find that balance by listening to our internal/external stakeholders, considering company goals and making decisions that positively impact business, our customers and their employees.

Lead Product Manager

How does the company support your career growth?

At Jellyvision, you don’t just hear from your manager when you’ve done something wrong. Jellyvision is big on positive feedback and celebrating success. In my experience, management has been great at helping me identify what my strengths are and pointing me in that direction as I progress here.

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.

Alex

VP of Implementation

What projects are you most excited about?

I’m in love with our primary product ALEX because it has real impact on people including some of my own family members! Our product helps users to smartly choose their benefits in an easy-to-understand and friendly way. Also, we are always coming up with new ideas and better versions of our products. Jellyvision is always on the go!

What are Jellyvision Perks + Benefits

Jellyvision Benefits Overview

* Competitive pay, 401(k) with matching and benefits. We pay 100% of the cost of premiums for medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance for our employees (as long as you qualify for our tobacco-free discount; if you’re a tobacco user, your medical premiums will be higher than $0). We also cover a really nice chunk of the cost of premiums for spouse/dependent medical, dental and vision insurance.

* Casual dress and a flexible schedule. Come in a sweatshirt, jeans, whatever, like everyone else here.
Creative work environment. We are lucky to work in a place that is full of intelligent, talented and innovative folks. Although most hours the place is deathly quiet (we're a focused bunch), this is punctuated with hilarious outbursts and general merriment, which makes a nice way to spend the day.

* Free food. Every week, we stock our kitchen with free healthy snack foods, and we have a catered lunch every other week to give people a reason to hang out and eat together.

* Easy transportation and lots of love for folks who bike to work. We’re really close to the North/Clybourn red line stop and the Halsted (#8) bus (right by the Apple Store and Mega Whole Foods too), and we have a transit FSA that allows you to dedicate pre-tax dollars to public transportation expenses. A number of our employees like to bike to work, so we also have bike storage, showers and lockers in the office. And for those without their own bike in the city, we offer free divvy memberships – complete with Jellyvision bike helmets you can borrow from the office.

* Did we mention our yoga and meditation classes? We bring a pro instructor right to the office. Fully subsidized by Jellyvision and fully optional, btw.

* Oh! And we have a massage chair. Not just any massage chair, my friend. It’s the Renew 2 Zero-Gravity Massage Chair by Brookstone®. Feeling a little stiff? Sit down. Relax. Feel better? Good. Okay, back to work.
