Easy Agile Career Description - Talent Acquisition Manager

Remote (NSW) or in-person (Wollongong)  ·  People Team  ·  Full time

About us

We believe that being agile is the best way for teams to learn, maximise their impact and work at a sustainable pace. That’s why our purpose is to help teams be agile. Pursuing this purpose are the amazing people who design and build the products we ship which help teams around the world collaborate, learn and improve together. It’s this which has led Easy Agile on a unique bootstrapped and profitable journey over the past 6 years. We have helped teams at over 1,700 companies like Netflix, NFL, Lego, EA, Mercedes, Dell and Twitter be agile.

The lofty goals we have set ourselves for the next 10 years will see us heading where no one has gone before and we are looking for a Talent Acquisition Manager to help grow our teams and employer brand. We’re committed to growing a profitable company that leads people first. We want to hire great people, then enable those people to do high impact work sustainably and effectively.

The Opportunity

We are aware that the talent market is booming right now, so instead of writing you a laundry list of what we want, we want to share with you why being the first Talent Acquisition hire at Easy Agile is an amazing opportunity:

  • Be a part of something unique - Easy Agile is a bootstrapped, profitable, self-directed and people-first business. This gives us the freedom to work, collaborate, celebrate and make decisions how we want.
  • People-first business leading with empathy - We aren’t a business that values profit and growth over all else. We value people, empathy, balance, and building a stronger, better community.
  • Shape the role - You will shape how we do Talent Acquisition here at Easy Agile. We are scaling and aren’t scared to change anything or everything in the pursuit of continuing to build exceptional teams. You will lead us through this constant evolution. We can promise you now that you won’t get stuck in a stagnant company afraid to change and will always be innovating and improving.
  • True career growth and investment - We will invest in you as a person and a professional because we believe Easy Agile is the sum of all the people who work here. So everyone’s growth is Easy Agile’s growth. We not only provide a safe space for failing, learning, innovating and growing, we put our money where our mouth is. Want a career coach? Want to do courses or perhaps attend a conference? We are happy to make it happen and support your growth journey.
  • World-class customers - Work with customers from around the world from our beautiful head office in Wollongong (we also support hybrid and remote working).

How you would work in this role:

You love being part of growing something and find fulfilment out of hiring people and watching them flourish in their roles. We don’t want a 'bums on seat' approach. We want to carefully build our teams to be effective, diverse and empathetic.

You will partner with the founders and leaders in the business to strategically plan how the organisation will grow, set out the plan to get there and deliver on those goals. You will be part of our growing People Team and while you will be the sole TA to start, you will have a great team to collaborate with.

You obsess over the candidate experience and ensure that no matter the outcome, a candidate has a memorable recruitment experience with us (this includes being good at giving tough feedback). We’ve been experimenting with pieces to make the experience better and we’d love to level this up and make it world-class. This includes training employees and leaders on how to be effective interviewers and advocates for the candidate experience.

You love change and have a hunger to continuously improve the way we attract and recruit new people. We would love you to reimagine how we communicate our careers, how we write our JD’s and how we bring in people to join the team. This includes being passionate about designing equitable recruitment processes and practices.

You’re curious and passionate about how we can lead with an authentic voice and employer brand. You are keen to get your hands dirty curating different ways we can host events, connect with the community and hire people through a relationship-based approach. You are creative and crafty in your approach to actively finding and engaging passive talent.

You’ll be our partner, advisor, curator and champion for all things talent at Easy Agile.
