About Bench

Bench solves bookkeeping for entrepreneurs. But our larger purpose expands beyond that. We’re here to help entrepreneurs understand what they want to do and where they want to go.

Job Description

We’re a committed and talented group of diverse people working hard to solve a real, universal problem for millions of entrepreneurs: businesses need to understand their financial performance, but for many smaller ones, this means a trade-off between doing their books and running their businesses. Bench solves this dilemma by taking bookkeeping off of their hands. We’ve paired smart humans with incredibly powerful software to develop the fastest, most efficient bookkeeping service in history. This lets us provide monthly and yearly financials at an incredibly accessible price, giving business owners the time, confidence, and knowledge they need to be successful.

Bench is growing fast. Recently, we’ve onboarded our 10,000th client and our 600th employee. We have a clear, funded path to profitability, and a roadmap that we believe will rapidly accelerate the trajectory of our business. We’re looking for the brightest minds who love solving tough problems to join us on this incredible journey, in pursuit of bringing financial mastery to our clients.

What makes this an exciting opportunity?

Bench’s Recruitment Team fuels our hyper-growth, so we’re naturally one of the most critical functions in our business. Our recruiters are people-focused individuals who have the drive and calling to seek out the brightest talent and who thrive in an ever-evolving, and rapidly scaling, environment. At Bench, we are proud of our grass-roots, home-grown talent. We’re known for this! And we're always looking for quality people to bring new experiences and ways of thinking to the table! This is where you come in. We’re looking for an Executive Recruiter who has a knack for finding senior talent who will shape, design and deliver the future of Bench. You’re going to help us take Bench to the moon!  

What you’ll be getting up to:

  • Helping us identify and hire unspeakably excellent humans and leaders who uniquely make our culture and values come alive in their roles and for their teams.
  • Develop our executive recruiting strategy and talent reach through a collaborative partnership with our Brand and Marketing teams, DEI team and executive team.
  • Partnering with hiring teams to design, implement and run an equitable process for all executive-level hiring. 
  • Managing the recruitment cycle from beginning to end by reviewing applications, conducting preliminary interviews, organizing in-person interviews with hiring teams, reference checks, and generating offer letters using our in-house system.
  • Ensuring your talent pipeline has strong representation of marginalized and underrepresented candidates, consistent with our company commitment to DEI.
  • Using data to continuously improve the equity, effectiveness and efficiency of your hiring and sourcing efforts. 

To be successful in this role, you’ll need to have:

  • Mastery of recruitment: You really know recruitment, all of it from end-to-end. You have the experience to talk to your past achievements, and the results to prove it. 
  • A skilled star catcher: You are skilled in finding hard-to-find senior talent. You have a proven knack at hiring both established and rising stars, and love getting brilliant people into brilliant positions.
  • An eye on the long term: You know the power of relationships, and have a long term lens on talent acquisition. You love getting to know future stars, and building relationships between them and the organizations you're in service to.
  • A well-developed equity lens: You actively engage in the leadership of teams and of strategic-level recruitment with an equity lens and an eye for inclusivity. You don’t just accept equitable practices, you model and advocate for them.
  • A people-centered approach: You understand that people are everything. You’re collaborative, optimistic and you listen to understand, demonstrating kindness and empathy in all interactions.
  • A drive to make things better: You’re not satisfied with “good enough”, and nothing that needs fixing is just someone else’s job. You love to experiment, try new things, and drive improvement; within your own team, and across the organization.
  • Zoom-in, Zoom-out: You can take a big-picture perspective to identify and stay focused on what’s most important, then zoom-in on the details to execute seamlessly.
  • Intellectual curiosity: It’s not enough for you to know the what - you need to know the why! You are energized by challenging problems and are persistent/resourceful in your efforts to solve them.
  • Startup hustle: You are highly motivated, proactive, comfortable with change and ambiguity. You have a humble, team-player attitude and are ready to pitch in wherever you are needed most.

It could be an even better fit if you have:

  • A passion for mentorship: You are passionate and experienced in coaching and tutoring other recruiters on talent acquisition. You know some neat tricks about sourcing hard-to-find people, and are looking to share that knowledge with others.

The extra details:

  • This is a full-time permanent position because we want to spend lots of time with your wonderful self!
  • This position offers an annual salary, stock options, and an extended benefits package that includes health, dental, and vision.
  • Our office has gone fully remote! We’ll set you up with everything you need to work from home, from day one.

We believe that unchecked biases disproportionately impact the most marginalized people in society—including but not limited to BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+ people, immigrants, and people with disabilities. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or other marginalized communities because we believe that without you, we are all less. At Bench, we don’t stand for tokenism. We stand for representation.
