About Vayu

Vayu is re-imagining the trillion-dollar U.S. B2B card payments infrastructure, with a focus on the country’s 500,000 commercial fleets, 10 million commercial vehicles, and 4 million commercial drivers. The incumbent technologies that cater to these customers are decades old, and drivers, fleets, and the merchants that serve them all increasingly demand modern digital experiences and affordable and transparent financial services products. Vayu’s mission is to deliver them at a transformational scale, and to improve working lives in one of the country’s biggest industry sectors. The company is currently in stealth and will officially launch in 2021.

Job Description

Vayu is re-imagining the trillion-dollar U.S. B2B card payments infrastructure, with a focus on the country’s 500,000 commercial fleets, 10 million commercial vehicles, and 4 million commercial drivers. The incumbent technologies that cater to these customers are decades old, and drivers, fleets, and the merchants that serve them all increasingly demand modern digital experiences and affordable and transparent financial services products. Vayu’s mission is to deliver them at a transformational scale, and to improve working lives in one of the country’s biggest industry sectors. The company will officially launch later in 2021.

Vayu is co-founded and led by Daniel Simon, who previously cofounded Bread (breadpayments.com), a leading payments and credit technology firm backed by some of the world’s top VCs, and Andrew Woolf, a former executive at Lyft and Amplify. We are backed by top fintech & mobility venture funds – including Better Tomorrow Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, BoxGroup, Avid Ventures, Foundation Capital, Greycroft, and Colle – and premier angel investors – including Max Levchin (Affirm), Josh Abramowitz (Bread), Jason Gardner (Marqeta), William Hockey (Plaid), Ryan Petersen (Flexport), and many others. 

We are looking for a Director of Talent Acquisition -- Vayu's first recruiter -- to partner with the founders to build an extraordinary team and culture.

What You'll Do

  • Own full-cycle recruiting at an extremely ambitious startup. Act as a trusted talent acquisition advisor and Vayu's first recruiter.
  • Source exceptional talent, identifying passive candidates who will thrive at an early stage startup and deliver extraordinary impact
  • Develop a scalable process for recruiting. Vayu is growing very quickly and needs a repeatable, fair, effective, and data-driven recruiting process to make that happen. 
  • Deliver a best-in-class candidate experience. Foster trust-based relationships with candidates, gaining a close understanding of their requirements and concerns. Architect a candidate experience that is a reason why candidates choose to work at Vayu (and refer their friends and colleagues).

What We're Looking For

  • 5+ years of full-cycle startup recruiting experience, with some technical recruiting experience
  • You are an experienced and creative sourcer with a deep network of talent (ideally in NYC engineering circles). You love matching great candidates to great companies and roles, and you have proven ability to identify and attract passive candidates who deliver significant impact. 
  • You're practical and business-minded, known for solving complex problems and delivering significant impact, and excited about the rewards and volatility of an early-stage venture-backed startup.
  • Experience working strategically with senior business leaders with proven ability to take initiative and build strong, productive relationships.
  • You're a savvy negotiator with experience negotiating equity compensation packages
  • You bring a data-driven approach to your work -- you realize that hiring can be a subjective process, and you do all you can to make it as objective and quantitative as possible
