About the role

Andela is looking to hire a Senior Recruiting Manager, to join our NYC office and manage all US hiring at Andela. We’ve recently surpassed the exciting milestone of 1,300 Andelans globally, and plan to reach double that size by of 2020—the People department’s Recruiting team will drive much of that growth. Of course, we care about growth in both the quantity and quality of our employees, so our recruiters’ success is measured not just by their time-to-hire and headcount filled, but also by pass-through rate, EPIC values alignment, and other more qualitative metrics. In the US office, most of the hiring needs are for Andela’s demand-side teams—the Sales, Marketing, Data, Finance, and Product teams.
