• Diving deep into our recruiting data to understand trends and opportunities
• Thinking big about how attract talent and then putting plans in place to deliver on your ideas

Preferred Qualifications
• Ability to proactively network and establish effective working relationships, continually seek new sourcing options, and develop creative approaches to delivering candidates to the customer
• Strong communication skills, organizational and negotiation skills.
• Ability to execute recruiting strategy, including employer promotion in the marketplace, candidate management, diversity and high-volume tech profile sourcing, recommending adjustments to strategy using data such as funnel metrics, and management of interview process.
