We’re seeking a Recruiting Coordinator who can juggle all of the balls that have to land properly in order to make multiple simultaneous hiring processes work.  That means everything from posting the job through successfully filling the position.  This also requires the ability to understand team needs and do initial filtering of candidates and resumes.  It involves working with referrals and external recruiters where necessary too.

Specifically, the right fit for this position should be highly process oriented but also comfortable with sourcing and interviewing activities for non-technical and semi-technical roles (like marketing, community management and developer education).  You will wear a lot of hats and coordinate with other team members in the operations function at the NF and in similar roles at other companies across the NEAR ecosystem.  We all benefit if great talent is entering the ecosystem!

Exceptional candidates are deeply familiar with the blockchain and crypto landscape and the unique needs of sourcing talent that will interact primarily with technical users.  This is not a good fit for someone who hasn’t worked within tech recruiting or operations before.

This is a remote contracted position with the NEAR Foundation.

Key Outcomes

  1. All open hiring processes run and conclude without dropped balls.
  2. For new positions, needs are turned into recs quickly and accurately.
  3. Run hiring coordination syncs.

Key Requirements

  1. 3+ years in startup environments working in recruiting, hiring coordination or operations functions
  2. Very strong project management and organization skills
  3. A warm and professional “bedside manner” with candidates as they go through the process.

About the NEAR Foundation

The NEAR Foundation is a nonprofit, non-beneficiary foundation based in Switzerland which supports community-driven innovation and the Open Web with a specific focus on the NEAR platform. The Foundation distributes grant funding into the NEAR ecosystem, coordinates governance among participants, educates people about the protocol and ensures that relationships among the community members are as strong and sustainable as the apps they build.
