Job Description

About Faire

Faire is an online wholesale marketplace built on the belief that the future is local — there are over 1M independent retailers in the U.S. and Canada doing more than twice the revenue of Walmart and Amazon combined. At Faire, we're using the power of tech, data, and machine learning to connect a thriving community of over 100,000 brands and local retailers around the world. Picture your favourite boutique in town — we help them discover the best products to sell in their stores. With the right tools and insights, we believe that we can level the playing field so that small businesses can compete with these big box and ecommerce giants. We’re looking for smart, resourceful and passionate people to join us as we power the shop local movement.

You will be an expert in using various channels such as networking, database mining and social media channels to identify talent and ultimately convert to active and engaged candidates. 

What you'll do 

  • Collaborate closely with technical recruiters, coordinators, and hiring managers to develop a search strategy, construct target lists, identify top tier prospective candidates for hard to fill roles across Faire

  • A/B test reach-out methodologies and increase talent pipeline conversion
  • Ensure high level of data integrity with our ATS
  • Stay in-tune with the activity in various markets (start-up, marketplaces, tech space) and educate business on learnings in order to effectively strategize
  • Train and mentor future team members on best sourcing practices


  • 2+ years of proven Technical Recruiting (preferably sourcing) experience required
  • Track record for successfully identifying exceptional candidates
  • Familiarity with Greenhouse is a plus
  • Experience in sourcing for candidates through multiple channels (web, social/professional networks, etc.)
  • Ability to understand relevant tech skills, target companies, conferences, open source communities
  • Strong communication and interpersonal skills
  • Ability to multitask and adapt to fast-paced work environment
  • Prior sourcing experience at a start-up is ideal
