Director of Sales Recruiting

| West Suburbs


Some great ideas are born in the garage.  Others in a dorm room.  Or over pizza and beer.  Some form like the perfect wave.


ServiceNow, the fastest-growing enterprise company over $2 Billion, is changing the way people work. The company was founded on the beach in San Diego in 2004 with the belief that getting simple stuff done at work shouldn’t be so hard. And that the complex stuff should be easier to manage. We envisioned a world where anyone could create workflows that worked for—not against—them. The ServiceNow cloud‑based platform was built to simplify the way work gets done.


Today, every enterprise is becoming a technology company, creating unprecedented challenges, opportunities, and complexity. ServiceNow lets them run smarter, faster, better. And it helps people spend their time on work that’s meaningful, not menial.


We’re disruptive. We work hard but try not to take ourselves too seriously. We are highly adaptable and constantly evolving. We are passionate about our product, and we live for our customers. We have high expectations and a career at ServiceNow means challenging yourself to always be better.




With the continued acceleration of growth ahead of ServiceNow we are looking for a leader for our Talent Acquisition Sales team.  We have our sights set on being an enduring company that grows to $4B and $10B in the coming years, and we are going to do this with great talent on our side. 


The ideal candidate must thrive in a highly dynamic and changing environment and will  lead a sales recruiting team with focus, creativity and innovation.  This is an exceptional opportunity to transform the way ServiceNow works and to build a performance driven, healthy talent organization that can scale globally.
