powertofly approved What Duck Duck Go Inc Has to Offer:

When we brought on DuckDuckGo, the search engine that does not track people, I was pretty excited to work with a company on the forefront of data privacy. When I learned how they are a fully remote company with flexible work schedules, co-working office reimbursements (sometimes it’s hard to focus at home) and a real vacation policy (their CEO took 5 weeks last year), I was elated.

We are a diverse team from around the world, working together on a mission to set a new standard of trust online. Join us as a remote Technical Recruiter to help shape the future growth of the DuckDuckGo team.

As part of our People Ops team, you will be collaborating with stakeholders across our organization to understand their unique hiring needs, provide advice on the criteria for their requisitions, source diverse candidates, and manage the end-to-end hiring process.

We are fully-remote and empower our team to be self-directed and self-motivated in their projects. If you'd thrive in that environment, and our core values resonate with you -- build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction -- you'll fit right in!

What you will do:
  • Lead development of new hiring requisitions by collaborating with hiring teams on candidate evaluation criteria, evaluation project design, and writing the job description.
  • Find unique ways to source candidates and execute experiments to determine effectiveness.
  • Own the end-to-end hiring process including recruiting, screening resumes, interviewing applicants, and managing the candidate experience.
  • Consult with hiring teams to offer insight into their decision-making throughout the hiring process.
  • Participate in our passive hiring and internal referrals strategy.
What we are looking for:
  • Minimum of three years of experience in talent acquisition, leading end-to-end hiring processes.
  • Proven success in hiring for IT openings (e.g. software engineers, site reliability).
  • Strong organizational skills, you have an eye for detail and are not afraid to use it!
  • Effective project management skills.
  • Strong communication skills: You clearly articulate, in verbal and written communication, your recommendations and decisions.
  • Comfortable providing feedback to an array of stakeholders, internal and external, to the organization
Other things to know:
  • We are a small, remote team in different time zones and communicate with a variety of tools throughout the day. You should feel comfortable with the intricacies of this type of work situation and balancing communicating with candidates across these different time zones.
  • Sometimes we meet up! You can expect to travel at least 2x a year: once for our all-hands meetup and another for a team retreat (each ~4-5 days). You may also be required to travel for recruiting events throughout the year.
  • We want to have a major impact on raising the standard of trust online. To do this, we believe in a focused approach, with company-wide objectives, and with each team member working on a single top priority at a time.
  • Our work philosophy is built upon empowered project management. All team members have opportunities to run projects.
  • All projects are run transparently, and we encourage everyone to participate in areas of interest throughout the company. Anyone and everyone can (and should) ask questions and offer feedback around the product and internal projects.
  • We try to exemplify our values (build trust, question assumptions, and validate direction) in everything we do.

DuckDuckGo does not work with any recruiting agencies or services. A big part of our culture is to work with each candidate on a one-to-one basis throughout our unique hiring process.
