The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of personal experience in people’s heads, or buried in books and research papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds — from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences — so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge, and we’re building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.
The Recruiting Team at Quora is responsible for supporting the company’s growth in pursuit of our mission. We aim to hire and retain world-class employees and to create an environment where they can do their best work. We strive to be innovators and leaders in our field.
We value honest communication, mutual respect, and view ourselves as partners to our candidates and hiring managers. Ability to develop a deep rapport with candidates is critical to success on our team. If you are passionate about Technical Recruiting and would like to join an organization that shares your passion, come join us!
Quora is expanding and we’re seeking to bring aboard an experienced technical recruiter to help us grow. We’re at the beginning of one of the most exciting chapters in our company’s history; earlier this year we transitioned to “remote-first”, and our goal is now to identify and attract the best engineering talent from anywhere in the world to join us in our mission to share and grow the world’s knowledge.
This role requires experience in building a pipeline of high-caliber software engineering talent (full stack, backend and machine learning). You will perform full-cycle recruiting and will partner closely with our engineering leaders to identify, engage, and manage candidates through our recruiting pipeline.
With our transition to remote-first, this position offers a unique opportunity to shape Quora’s approach to hiring. You’ll be tasked with exploring international labor markets, identifying new pools of talent and developing strategies to recruit them, as well as experimenting with different hiring approaches. And while we do have best-practices in place around candidate engagement and our hiring processes, we’re excited about the idea of bringing aboard a new team member with fresh ideas who can also help mentor others on the team.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
ATTN. Be careful! You should never send cash or cheques to a prospective employer, or provide your bank details or any other financial information. We pay great attention to vetting all jobs that appear on our site, but please get in touch if you see any roles asking for such payments or financial details from you. The employer won't know who reported this job.
