Senior Recruiter

| Greater Denver Area

Guild, the leading education benefits platform and one of Denver's fastest growing startups, is increasing economic mobility for working adults in America and providing education and support to help every student survive and thrive in the economy of tomorrow. Our platform helps employers offer education as a benefit to their employees by connecting employers' workforces with our network of nonprofit universities and education institutions that focus on serving the needs of working adults. And, our team of retention coaches helps each employee navigate the path back to school, providing individualized support from day one through graduation. In order to accelerate our growth and achieve our mission to serve 1000s more students, we've raised over $70 million from top tier investors including Felicis Ventures, Bessemer Venture Partners, and Redpoint Ventures (among other social impact and VC partners!).

As a Senior Recruiter you will be tasked with taking ownership of the full recruiting cycle to achieve the goal of scaling our business teams with the highest quality associates, who not only offer unique skills and experience but also a strong addition to our company culture. Reporting to the Sr. Manager of Recruiting, you will be a part of a team that fosters a collaborative environment and strong partnership with our hiring managers.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Design and implement overall recruiting strategy alongside Guild leadership team
  • Develop and manage company-wide recruiting and hiring processes, building a strong foundation to identify, engage, and close top tier talent
  • Lead full-cycle recruitment (sourcing, identifying, evaluating, closing, on-boarding) across a variety of roles, building a high-touch candidate experience to land top talent for our business needs
  • Collaborate with hiring managers around role definition, pipeline calibration, interviewing preparedness, candidate assessment and decision making
  • Use data and metrics to determine the success and health of recruiting; continue to iterate on and improve the effectiveness of our recruiting practices
  • Promote company’s reputation as a fantastic place to work

Personality Profile:

The culture is fast-paced, exciting and mission driven at Guild Education. Our collaborative and hard-working nature requires everyone to work closely and effectively together. Given that, personality and culture fit is a major consideration.

We want you if your mindset includes:

  • A sense that you’re a builder, not an editor
  • A strong sense of accountability and co-ownership of challenges
  • A desire to work in an environment where priorities change as we learn
  • Ambition to help achieve our mission while progressing your career
  • A love for the all hands-on deck feel of a startup—no task too big or too small
  • Humility as a team player with a willingness to a diversity of assignments - incredibly difficult challenges to somewhat mundane tasks - depending on the day
  • Passion for entrepreneurship & social impact in the higher education and employment space

We want you if your background and skillset includes:

  • Proven corporate recruiting experience (3+ years) with strong track record for sourcing and attracting top business development, marketing, HR and sales talent
  • Solid ability to conduct different types of interviews based on best practices and research
  • Hands-on experience with various selection processes (phone screening, interview coordination, reference check etc)
  • Familiarity with HR databases, applicant tracking systems and CMS
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Strong decision-making skills
  • The skills to work independently but to also ask for help, direction, clarification when needed
  • Strong interpersonal skills and ability to manage complex relationships and difficult conversations

Why us?

  • We’re a mission-driven company with a proven business model that addresses a massive problem and market opportunity. It’s our goal to to support as many Guild members as possible, and change the world along the way
  • We offer a competitive salary and benefits package
  • We’ve recently closed our $8.5M Series A round, and we’re eager to bring new members to our team who can help us keep up with our growth
  • We’re a rapidly growing team with 40+ years of combined experience at three different ed tech companies, guided by leading investors including Redpoint Ventures, Social Capital, Harrison Metal, and Cowboy Ventures
  • Training in Design Thinking - we’re disciples of the process with experience building businesses at Stanford’s Design School, and we love sharing the methodology
  • Our co-founders have collaborated together for 10+ years, including two past ventures in education technology and higher ed, and are committed to building a community and company where we all love to work
  • Unlimited growth potential - we’re looking to grow smart, talented people with our company

What you won’t get from Guild:

  • Micro-management or hourly directions. We want people who thrive when given ownership and autonomy to take initiative and run with projects. That said, we’ll support you and give you feedback regularly
  • Reverence for the status quo. We believe what’s out there today for our students doesn’t cut it, plus we love change and believe it’s our job to function as a learning organization. That means near-constant evolution, reflection and change
  • Corporate pace or precision. At Guild, done is better than perfect. If you like having certainty about your plans or dislike quick turnaround times, we’re not a great fit
