San Diego, CA | Recruiting

Job Description

What's next in the world of social networks?

ProjectUplift is building the world's first social economy.  What's a social economy?  A social economy is taking the best of what you love about your favorite social network and allowing you the opportunity to monetize your time while you're there.  It could be blogging about your passion, selling goods and services or using your expertise to help someone else become successful.  We are building a platform that will enable the community to help itself through crowd-sourcing the expertise in the community.  We will empower the community to help each other so that everybody wins.

How do I find out more?

Well, we can't tell you too much right now.  We're currently in beta so we have purposfully avoided marketing.  That's going to change in the Summer of 2013 when we come out of beta and go live.  Until then the best place to see what we're up to is our launch page (www.projectuplift.com).  It will tell you more about what we're building and, if you're interested, we can tell you more.

What is ProjectUplift looking for?

We are looking for a Recruiting Manager to join our talent acquisition team.  The Recruiting Manager will have a player/coach role in our organization both executing on their assigned positions as well as managing, mentoring and coaching two Sourcing Recruiters.  While we are hiring across the board given we're a software company so the bulk of our hires will be technical in nature.  While you don't have to come into ProjectUplift knowing how to interview a C# engineer you will be responsible for aggressive and creative sourcing strategies that will attract the right talent.     

What should I bring to the table?

  • Ability to manage, train and coach a team of Sourcing Recruiters
  • Maturity to interface with hiring managers when developing positiion specifications, company targets, etc.
  • Comfort in leading by example when it comes to all aspects of the recruiting process
  • Desire to be a player/coach in a team-based recruiting environment
  • Belief that the recruiting process should be driven by metrics and quantitative results
  • Ability to creatively source talent through non-traditional sources
  • Identify and recommend changes to streamline the sourcing process
  • Ability to self-manage their daily activities to drive a pipeline of great candidates
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Bachelors degree required

Why should I join ProjectUplift?

By now you've probably seen our launch video and the answer should be simple:  you want to be a part of a team that's going to create a game changing social economy.  You want to help build a social economy with the potential to touch and help billions of users across the globe.  You're getting to do that on at the ground floor (we're already 20 people and growing quickly).  You will get to help shape the product and company as we scale and grow.  You will get to work with a world-class leadership team, as well as specialists across technology, design, program, and strategy who have unparalleled knowledge and understanding of the social networking domain.

Where are you located?

Our headquarters are in downtown San Diego.  If you're a great candidate, but not in San Diego we are happy to help you relocate.

What about work sponsorship?

Right now we're unable to help with work sponsorship, such as H1B visas, H1B transfers, etc.
