About Affirm

At Affirm, we’re using today’s technology to bring significant disruptive innovation to the financial industry. We focus on improving the lives of consumers by delivering simple, honest and transparent financial products.

Job Description

Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.

Affirm is growing, and so is our Talent team! We are seeking a dynamic Senior Business Recruiter who shares our philosophy that finding high-quality talent requires innovative, out-of-the-box thinking versus traditional reactive methods.  As the first impression of our company, you'll need to be able to relay a compelling picture of our company, vision, culture and responsibilities to potential candidates, and be fearless in pursuing great candidates.

The Talent team makes sure that the candidate experience is enhanced by a top-notch hiring process. We take great pride in a fast but thoughtful approach and our philosophy of quick and consistent communication with all candidates. We are passionate about building a diverse and inclusive team and we need someone who shares these values!

What you'll do

    • Team up with hiring managers to build strategies and pipeline: source, assess, and close high-caliber candidates 
    • Partner with leadership to develop short and long-term recruiting objectives and strategies to attract and hire diverse talent
    • Continuously build a network of potential candidates
    • Conduct in-depth interviews with an advanced level of curiosity
    • Support ad hoc projects as needed and be willing to do whatever it takes at a moment’s notice to seize an opportunity; the market moves quickly and so should you
    • Be an ambassador of our candidate experience by constantly thinking of ways we can enhance our employer brand
    • Proactively recruit and maintain relationships with highly sought after candidates

What we look for

    • 4+ years of full lifecycle business recruiting experience, including some startup experience
    • Proven track record of success in building strong partnerships with multiple teams and stakeholders
    • Persistent curiosity and desire to learn as much as possible about our business
    • Highly collaborative recruiter who understands the value of internal relationships
    • Excellent at driving the process and moving it forward despite any obstacles
    • Excellent representative of the company - professional, articulate, knowledgeable and intelligent
    • Ability to identify the unique value that each candidate brings to the table and manage their candidate experience accordingly
    • A strong project manager who knows how to prioritize
    • A fun and collaborative teammate who pitches in wherever necessary
    • Ability to think creatively and critically, and thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic, and often ambiguous work environment
We’re excited to announce that Affirm is now a remote-first company!  The majority of our roles can be accomplished anywhere in the U.S.  While most Affirmers will have the option to choose a remote-first accommodation, our offices in San Francisco, New York City, Pittsburgh, Chicago, and Salt Lake City will remain operational and accessible for anyone to use on a voluntary basis.
