Talent Acquisition Manager

Talent Acquisition Manager

Who you are.

You consider an organization's greatest asset to be the people who are a part of it. Your greatest enjoyment at work comes from helping people grow and succeed in their career. You are pragmatic, yet empathic. You are excellent with people. You have a growth mindset, are naturally curious, and seek continuous learning in everything you do.

What you'll do.

Over the past sixteen months, Kamana has grown from three to thirty-three full-time distributed/remote team members who have helped more than 120,000 healthcare professionals and hundreds of healthcare employers more efficiently navigate the world of healthcare staffing.

We firmly believe that the success of our users begins with the happiness and success of the people who craft and support the user journey on the Kamana platform. As Talent Acquisition Lead and the third People & Culture hire at Kamana, you will play an instrumental role in helping us even more rapidly scale our team over the next 12-24 months.

Your work will enable us to sustainably grow Kamana to help millions of healthcare pros & thousands of employers nationwide, becoming the new standard in how healthcare staffing operates. To accomplish this, you'll do things like:

  • Collaborate across the Kamana team to assess upcoming hiring needs and determine the attributes that will make a person most successful in each position
  • Build diverse and inclusive candidate pipelines through an array of sourcing and recruiting strategies, utilizing both in house and third party platforms/services to attract top tier talent
  • Own the full lifecycle recruiting process, with a heavy focus on high-demand startup roles such as engineering, product, and design (while our Head of People & Culture focuses on less technical positions that have historically been quicker to fill)
  • Assess the qualifications and experience of candidates using a wide range of screening techniques that gauge interest, technical and culture fit, and career alignment
  • Work alongside our Head of People & Culture and People Success Specialist to foster high quality, people-centric recruitment, interviewing, hiring, and onboarding experiences

Experimentation is frequent. Comfortability with being uncomfortable is a must.

What you've done before.

You have something like five or more years of experience successfully recruiting for high-growth technology startups, during which time you have done things like:

  • Sourced and vetted candidates for both technical and non-technical roles
  • Developed and maintained strong talent pipelines through both passive and active recruiting
  • Gained a firm understanding of recruiting metrics to drive decision-making
  • Developed and executed successful recruitment marketing and branding strategies
  • Become passionate about building diverse teams that are rooted in transparency and trust
  • Leveraged technology to stay on the edge of effectiveness for reaching potential candidates
  • Developed strong interpersonal skills with the ability to communicate professionally

It'd be cool if you've done this.

Having a solid understanding of the Elixir programming language, with experience recruiting for roles in the Elixir ecosystem, would get you to the top of the list. Experience recruiting for any of the following programming languages would alternatively be beneficial: Erlang, Ruby, Haskell, Rust, Go, Scala.

Having been on the ground floor of a fast growing startup, with a desire to repeat this journey, may also set you apart from other candidates, but is not required as long as you are up for the challenge!

Salary, benefits, & how we work.

This is a full time exempt position with an expected salary of $85,000 - $100,000/year.
