About MessageBird

MessageBird is on a mission to modernize and simplify the overcomplicated space of customer communication. As a leading cloud communications platform with over 15.000 customers, MessageBird provides SMS, Chat, Voice, and Video APIs that connect businesses to their customers more quickly and reliably than ever before.

Job Description

MessageBird is transforming the communications landscape as one of the fastest-growing software companies in the world. Our cloud communications platform makes it possible for businesses to instantly connect with over 7 billion phones globally, allowing them to speak with their customers in the same ways they talk to their friends.

Our suite provides access to all major messaging channels, from SMS and Voice to WeChat, Messenger, Facebook, WhatsApp and more. We provide out-of-the-box solutions with our own applications like Inbox and Flow Builder, plus a robust set of APIs that simplify workflows and automation.

With over 20,000 customers — including some of the world’s biggest brands like Facebook, Deliveroo, Uber and WhatsApp — it’s likely that you’ve benefited from MessageBird’s omnichannel technology at some point. For small and mid-sized businesses, we also offer support and solutions through an Online Self-Serve (OSS) dashboard.

Our global team is a powerhouse of 350+ employees, who work across eight international offices. We’re excited that you’re here and interested to #jointhenest.

How we work

We work fast, grow fast, and build fast. Life at MessageBird moves in fast-forward motion. We’re a team that focuses on making an impact — right from day one. We are go-getters, industry leaders, and dreamers. Risk takers. Roll-up-your-sleeves-and-make-it-happen kind of people. We thrive on transparency, and we value solution-minded attitudes.

We are all driven by one ethos: Get Shit Done. We love shaping things together and leveraging different perspectives, because that makes our products better. Our Birds are empowered with freedom and opportunity; in return, we expect honesty, courage, and agility. We own our work, and sometimes we fail. And then we get back up and cross the finish line — together as a team. Sound refreshing? We think so, too.

The role: Tech Recruiter

As more talented people fill our ranks, we’re looking for a Tech Recruiter to help us build our growing nest of birds globally. As a part of the Global Talent Team, you will have a huge impact on the growth of our company through innovative hiring strategies that meet our business needs and exceed our candidate’s expectations.

As a Tech Recruiter you will support our Product and Engineering teams, acting as a true business partner for your hiring managers. You take the lead in actively searching for the best talent out there and engaging the most highly skilled candidates through high touch and personalised experiences. By building knowledge of the external talent landscape and knowing the market's ins and outs, you are able to find, attract and engage the best talent. Your job is not only to hit the hiring target, but also to elevate our hiring practices and bring them to the next level.

You are driven and easily develop lasting relationships with both candidates and hiring managers. Besides that, you are comfortable with data and drawing insights from analytics to make our hiring process smarter and more efficient – from generating pipelines to maintaining a successful offer acceptance rate. You are responsible for the entire candidate process.  

What you’ll do

  • Recruit top tech talent globally and achieve quarterly hiring goals.
  • Manage the full cycle, end-to-end recruitment process.
  • Provide an efficient and high-touch experience for every candidate from application stage to offer, evaluating skill level and driving the interview process and offer process.
  • Take a proactive approach to identifying and anticipating roadblocks and find solutions.
  • Communicate effectively with both candidates and internal stakeholders. Educate hiring managers and interview teams to ensure they are prepared and engaged for every interview process.
  • Build relevant global sourcing strategies tailored to the market and hiring needs.
  • Actively contribute to promoting our employer brand via social media, events, etc.
  • Ensure a great candidate experience for every candidate! 

What you’ll bring

  • 3+ years of technical recruiting experience, preferably as an in-house recruiter within a fast-growth, tech company
  • Experience in managing full cycle recruitment and closing a variety of open source technical roles at different levels. Track record in delivering against and achieving hiring targets
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Strong business partnering skills, able to build strong, productive relationships, educate and influence your stakeholders
  • Data-driven; you’re all about the numbers and using that to optimize.
  • Experience solving business issues by designing effective hiring strategies and delivering significant impact as an individual contributor.
  • Eager to take initiative, adapt quickly to changing priorities with a high sense of urgency.
  • Proactive and innovative; always looking for opportunities to improve.
  • Excellent English communication skills, both written and verbally. 
  • Passionate and driven by your own enthusiasm.

Psst… some added perks

  • The ability to Work Anywhere — literally anywhere you want, as long as it’s in the same time zone as your team (yup… you read that right!). This comes with the added benefit of finding the right work-life balance for you by following our 80/20 rule.
  • WFH office set-up allowance to make sure you have all you need to “get shit done” in an ergonomically-friendly manner.
  • Top-notch work equipment (including Bose headphones!).
  • MessageBird swag to keep you well-dressed.
  • The occasional (virtual) company-wide and team events. 
  • A team of (fast-)forward-thinking, talented and fun colleagues from more than 50 countries!
