ClassDojo's goal is to give every child on Earth an education they love.

We started by building a powerful network for communication. ClassDojo’s flagship app is the #1 communication app connecting K-8 teachers, children, and families globally. Teachers use it to share what’s happening throughout the day through photos, videos, and messages that make parents feel like they’re there. It’s actively used in over 95% of US schools, reaching over 50 million children in 180 countries, with a team of just around 200 people [1]. We are now beginning to use this network to give kids the best learning experiences in the world, far beyond those a standard school can provide.

We hire for talent density. Our team comprises the most talented, entrepreneurial, and innovative teammates from around the world, with experience in education and large scale consumer internet companies, including Instagram, Netflix, Dropbox, Stripe, Uber, Y Combinator, and more. We’re building a company where the most talented people want to work. We believe you’ll do the best work of your life here—and you’ll pioneer the future of education, too.

What you’ll do:

  • You will partner closely with hiring managers across the organization to identify, source and hire top talent across the company
  • You will source for both technical and non-technical roles, primarily starting with our engineering and product organizations
  • You will develop and execute on sourcing strategies to engage with high caliber talent
  • You will use data to evaluate the effectiveness of our searches and advise the business accordingly
  • You will provide a high touch candidate experience from beginning to end, and potentially take on full life cycle responsibilities (source to close) over time
  • You will ensure a high level of data integrity with our ATS and other systems
  • You’ll proactively drive recruiting process improvements that help us operate most efficiently and with candidates’ best interests in mind

You will be a match if:

  • You have at least 5 years of technical recruiting experience
  • You have proven experience building strong relationships with hiring managers and using business context to help drive their hiring decisions
  • You take a data driven approach in all aspects of the recruiting funnel
  • You believe in talent density – that each and every hire you bring in makes a company stronger and upleveled
  • You treat every candidate with a white-glove experience because they’re an MVP
  • You can source passive top talent no matter how hard the market
  • You love recruiting candidates in terms of quality over quantity
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • You have the ability to prioritize and self-manage as you support one the fastest growing departments in the company
  • You have experience working in a high-growth environment

You might be a good match if:

  • You have recruiting experience in a consumer tech environment
  • You have experience with full cycle recruitment including sourcing and closing passive candidates
