Role: Tech Talent Advisor

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 2 years OfferZen has managed to make a large dent in the South African tech recruitment space - and we're speeding up. Our team has exploded from 4 to 40+. We’re looking to add more smart people who want to contribute meaningfully.

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.

What we’re looking for

We’re looking for hard-working and passionate people that are interested in helping software makers find their dream job.

The Tech Talent Advisors (internally we refer to ourselves as Talent Advisors) keep the OfferZen marketplace going: you are the face of OfferZen for developers, designers and all people in tech using our marketplace to find a job. It’s up to you to guide them through the process and ensure that they have a great experience. Tech Talent Advisors don’t work on commission, which enables them to focus on helping people rather than hitting revenue targets.

You will be the expert on tech marketplace knowledge that developers and designers rely on to succeed in their job search. When developers apply to OfferZen you’ll help them create awesome profiles and prepare for interviews - and during their job search you’ll give them ongoing advice.

We’re a data-driven company: you will have full access to the market data to help you make informed decisions. Analytical thinking will put you at an advantage.

Along with the platform itself, we built custom software that gives Tech Talent Advisors “superhuman” capabilities. Your insights will act as feedback for the product team and help them to make improvements and build new features.

What it’s like to work here

We are a fun loving and very driven team of 40+ people. We are transparent with our numbers and strategy and have weekly learning sessions where someone in the company presents something they do. We get lunch every day and have 20 days of leave a year. We do fun stuff together like going on picnics at Kirstenbosch, playing board games and having Sumo wrestling events!

About OfferZen

We’re helping makers - the people who design and build software products - to unlock their individual potential. We started with recruitment because helping someone find a job they love is one of the fastest ways of changing their life. Since then we’ve started expanding to things like training, root (programmable banking for developers) and building tools for the tech community.
