Hello, We’re Built In

Built In unites companies and people around their shared passion for tech and the universal need for purpose. To help our partners attract qualified talent, we create content that tells their story in a way no job post ever could — and we put their jobs in front of people who were born to do them. Our audience of sought-after candidates use Built In to find their professional purpose and connect meaningfully to the tech community, including by reading our content, networking at our events and applying to jobs at companies they believe in.

Headquartered in Chicago, we also serve Los Angeles, Colorado, Austin, New York, Boston and Seattle.

When you work for Built In, you have the opportunity to change lives by giving talented people access to purpose, not just a paycheck. And you’ll make an impact on some of the most exciting companies in tech, helping them hire their next wave of elite talent. Be part of Built In, and be part of the future of tech.

We’re looking for a Senior Recruiter

We’re currently experiencing hyper growth and we are looking for a proven Senior Recruiter to help us hire in a variety of areas.

  • Work closely with all hiring managers on headcount planning and process

What you need

  • 5+ years with full life-cycle experience recruiting where you have successfully sourced, attracted and secured top talent in various functional roles (Sales, Marketing, Events, Editorial and Ops) and levels (individual contributors and leadership)
  • A demonstrated ability to effectively source and convert top tier candidates in hard to fill roles
  • A natural knack of finding innovative ways to attract top talent, build relationships and establish Built In as an employer of choice in Chicago
  • Ability to multi-task in a fast-paced work environment with changing priorities

  • Experience working with Greenhouse or similar Applicant Tracking System

What We Value

We’re revolutionizing tech recruitment. So we question everything, because the best answers sit just to the right of a question mark. That’s our heritage as a disruptive company — as a company whose future depends on our capacity to innovate with a sense of drive, purpose and urgency. If you join Built In, you will work from this set of values:

  • Be Unreasonably Passionate. Our passion is borderline obsessive, and we’re ok with that. No one ever built anything great on a “meh.” We work with outsized passion to fulfill our mission.
  • Be Humble. You don’t have all the answers. Luckily, you don’t have to. Don’t worry about being right. Be humble instead.
  • Stay Curious. Curiosity is a springboard to the future. It can transform the wisp of an idea into a breakthrough. We ask “what if.” We work with wonder. It’s how we innovate.
  • Lead with Solutions. Question everything. But offer solutions as you do. Raise issues. But propose a few answers. For every hole you poke, offer a way to patch it up.
  • Own the Result. We have no time for blame or shame. When you stumble, own it, learn from it + get back to business.
  • Do More. Do more than your job description. Take initiative. Take charge. No job is beneath you, and no job is too big. Be a leader and do more — do whatever it takes.

Built In is an equal employment opportunity employer and values diversity. Qualified candidates are considered for employment without regard to race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, age, military or veteran status, disability, or any other characteristic protected by applicable law.

An Insider's view of Built In

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Good vibes are a top priority around here. You'll hear music played from our playlist that the entire company co-builds, you'll see a movie streaming on TV and, if you catch us at lunch, you'll see the entire office sitting at our communal table. We work hard every day but we always make time to spend together.

I am excited to work each day with a cross-functional team of intelligent, curious, driven and hilarious group of people. We’re working hard — and growing quickly — but we have a lot of laughs together, and a lot of respect for one another. It’s motivating and empowering.

Sarah

What are some things you learned at the company?

It’s pretty remarkable to experience an entire company operating as one team. At Built In, we tackle problems and achieve goals together, sharing in the responsibility of successes and downfalls alike.
