Technical Recruiter

| Chicago

Flexport is bringing a Silicon Valley approach to the antiquated industries of freight, trade and logistics (~12% of worldwide GDP) by building the first online operating system for global trade. With a total addressable market of $1 trillion, we've raised $300M from investors that include Founders Fund, DST Global, Google Ventures, First Round Capital, Bloomberg Beta, and Y Combinator to drive this mission.

  • Partner with the Chicago site leads to build a world class team in Chicago!
  • Work with the wider recruiting organization including sourcing, coordination, and programs to accelerate quality hiring
  • Develop an understanding of Flexport’s products, technology, market position, and employee value proposition to successfully identify and engage passive talent
  • Drive strategic recruiting initiatives

What you’ll need:

  • BA/BS degree
  • 5+ years of recruiting experience
  • Your own blend of strengths in sourcing, closing, technical/business acumen, process, events management, program management, and hiring manager partnering
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills, with a penchant for data
  • A strong desire to build an organization, have fun, grow, and succeed
