Why now is a great time to join OfferZen

This is an opportunity to make a significant impact at a fast-growing tech company.

Over the last 4 years OfferZen has managed to make a large dent in the South African tech recruitment space - and we're speeding up.

Our mission is to improve the experience of finding work for makers - people involved in making software, from developers to designers and data scientists. OfferZen does that by flipping the traditional recruitment model on its head and getting companies to reach out to makers with upfront offers.

OfferZen was founded by Philip and Malan Joubert, along with other successful tech startups like SnapScan, JourneyApps and Luno.

There are more cities, countries and industries to expand into, so the growth potential in this role is high.

The Opportunity

Our team has rapidly grown to 60+ people and we are looking to add even more smart people who want to contribute meaningfully to our team. We need someone to own that growth. Your mission as the OfferZen Internal Recruiter will be to own and run all aspects of the OfferZen recruiting process including creating awareness, sourcing, hiring, tooling and tracking.

You’ll need to be an expert on sourcing and hiring and help us to build a world class recruitment function that people look to for inspiration.

The kind of person we’re looking for can spot talent from a mile away, is incredibly persuasive and high energy and gets a kick out of connecting with people and winning them over.

In this role you’ll be responsible for

  • Finding candidates who raise the bar for the roles we are looking for and convincing them to join us
  • Collaborating with our team leads to help select the best people for the job and win them over
  • Getting the word out that OfferZen is an amazing place to work
