Terminal 1

Director / Head of Recruitment

HK Full-time


We’re looking for a Head of Recruitment who is excited about technology with previous managing director level experience and a huge battery of intelligence and gets-things-done to bring to bear.

This is an executive-level position and you will be working as part of our management team reporting directly to the CEO, and will have extensive exposure to our investors.

We build our own technology in-house and our goal is to build tools that recruiters love to use. You should be excited about technology in the recruitment space, envision the future, and help enable this vision by collaborating directly with our engineers.

In addition to day-to-day management and operations, you’ll have to grapple with various extraordinary and complex issues like designing commission structure, introducing new products to our clients, designing our sales pitch, and summarizing overall performance to our investors. At a high level, you’ll be in charge of the long-term improvement of our recruitment platform and how to improve recruiter effectiveness, retention, and attraction. This will require a high degree of intelligence and getting-things-done.

You’ll be joining a tight-knit team of 12 recruiters and engineers. Even though we started less than 2 years ago, we’re expanding quickly, onboarding 1-2 new recruiters each quarter, are profitable most quarters, and are making rapid progress on our technology.

If you’re looking to be the most important person in your next company, please create a profile and contact us as soon as possible!
