Senior Recruiter (Remote or Amsterdam)

Job description

At FindHotel, we discovered early that travel is the one thing that opens people's minds to new ideas, cultures, and ways of thinking. Our team comes from a variety of countries and backgrounds, and share the same passion for traveling and discovering new worlds and unconventional ways of doing things. We're a group of independent thinkers, always looking to challenge each other and get better at what we do.

Our mission is to get every traveller in the world the best accommodation deal. From adventure and backpacking to honeymoons and family vacations, we give travellers access to all the information and the available offers for their accommodation of choice. We're a passionate and diverse team of amazing humans who value and respect each other, spread between our HQ in Amsterdam and the various countries our remote folks work from. We're growing fast! Since 2016 we have grown the team from 20 to 70 and we are ready to grow even faster and triple our headcount by the end of 2022. As a Senior Recruiter, you have a unique chance to have a great impact on the further growth and success of FindHotel.

What we expect from you:

As a hands-on Recruiter, your first priority is to partner with the team to find the best candidates according to the business needs

  • On average and in the next couple of months, you will hire 2 new team members per month across data, product, marketing, operations, leadership and engineering. They come from different backgrounds and parts of the world, but share the same values.
  • To attract top talent from all over the world you will use a variety of channels. On average, about one third of our candidates are sourced, another third are referred by our colleagues or via our network and the last third applies via the various channels we use to publish or spread our vacancies.
  • To make sure we select the right candidates at the right time, you work closely with the leadership team and the hiring managers. Based on the needs of the business you build and prioritise the pipeline proactively.
  • During the selection process you screen and interview candidates for motivation, cultural fit, attitude and general fit with the technical requirements of the role. While you set a high bar, you focus on strengths rather than weaknesses and you will actively eliminate bias from the process to ensure we are selecting the most talented individuals who share our work culture.
  • To guarantee an optimal candidate experience you manage the candidate pipeline proactively and maintain close communication and a feedback loop with the candidates, from the very beginning of the hiring process until their onboarding

Next to hands-on recruitment you will manage recruitment-related projects and design scalable processes around hiring, so we can keep increasing our recruitment efforts and capacity:

  • Together, with your colleagues in the People Squad and the leadership team, you are constantly looking for ways to improve the hiring process and to grow our recruitment capacity according to the business needs. Whether this means introducing new tools or channels, implementing creative new ways of working or adding more (internal or external) capacity; you look for solutions for challenges. You optimize the processes for efficiency, quality of hires and an optimal experience for candidates and the hiring team
  • To make sure we attract and select the best candidates, you initiate and manage recruitment-related projects. These could include: employer branding, diversity & inclusion, reducing hiring bias, etc.

Some of the challenges for the recruitment team in the next months:

  • Build scalable and predictable hiring processes and manage recruitment capacity
  • Training and mentoring colleagues from the people squad and hiring managers
  • Improve our employer brand to enable us to reach our ambitious growth objectives
  • Build and maintain a smooth internal collaboration within the growing People Squad


What you bring to the table:

  • Solid experience recruiting tech and digital roles in technology-driven businesses, where you owned the end-to-end recruitment process
  • Experience working in an international environment, preferably in a (remote-friendly) start/scale-up
  • Excellent knowledge of modern recruitment trends and tools
  • Excellent communication and networking skills, ability to quickly gain trust from both hiring managers and candidates.
  • Curiosity to understand the business, strategy and requirements of the teams, so you can be a true sparring partner for the leadership and hiring managers
  • A result-driven attitude: you do what it takes to hire the right candidate and make sure you remove internal and external roadblocks along the way
  • A creative approach: you are not afraid to try out new ways of working and to challenge the status quo
  • Focus on quality (while keeping the right balance with the speed of hiring)
  • Bonus points if you have a strong network in Amsterdam or surroundings, or in the industry.
