Swim can share more details on the company’s culture and ethos, as well as their accolades and awards! 

    What- the Role:  

    Talent Acquisition Specialist, working with a collaborative and high-performing HR team and 3 others in talent acquisition. The new TA Specialist will take on diverse searches, many of them technical in nature, and will for the most support diverse hiring in the local head office.

    • Qualified individuals will be at their very best in a fast-paced, high-change, and creative work environment. 
    • Relevant experience working in a high-growth mid-size technology company is highly preferred, but certainly not required for someone who embodies the company’s culture and values. 
    • An entrepreneurial mind-set, thirst for knowledge, and big picture approach are all key. 
    • This company isn’t very big (yet!) and all employees have a “roll up your sleeves” approach to work. 
    • We are looking for people who are passionate about their career, but who also lead a full life outside of the office.

    Competitive base salary commensurate with level of experience, please discuss with Swim. There is also a performance-based bonus, a health spending account & personal spending account, and tons of fun social outings and meaningful charitable events.
