Meet the job

As a recruitment Team Lead, it’s on you to not only to set the benchmark for tech talent recruitment but to inspire your team as a leader. Your success isn’t measured by how many professionals you introduce, or the number of hires. We like to take it a step further (as in everything we do).

The ratio of ‘hires: introductions’ is what counts, making quality a top priority at Backbase. You are in the driver’s seat when it comes to defining the culture of our company and your understanding of technical skill sets is just as important as your style of communication when it comes to attracting new colleagues.

Day-to-day, you will develop your network by strengthening existing relationships and building new ones. From business demand to new hires, you expertly guide the entire process. Internally, you manage expectations; and you are upfront and honest about what’s possible and what’s not. Acting as the first filter in the application procedure, it’s up to you to save time by selecting only those candidates that will undoubtedly make it to the final round.

By asking bold, yet brilliant questions, you have the skills to reveal the candidate’s engagement with the process and their aptitude. At Backbase, it’s not enough to simply have a keen sense for talent and potency, so you may want to add to your knowledge by picking up some programming skills or learning about bitcoin trading. Your approach to the candidate experience will be exemplary – so much so that even rejected applicants will be full of commendation for you and our company.
