At LightStep, our mission is to deliver confidence at scale for those who develop, operate, and rely upon today’s powerful software applications. We created LightStep because we understand the massive architectural transformation underway in the software industry, and we saw an opportunity to accelerate it, all while improving the quality of the developer and end-user experience. While we learned a great deal from our experiences building Dapper (Google’s distributed tracing solution) and Monarch (Google’s high-availability metrics solution), LightStep is in many ways a reaction to and a generational improvement beyond those approaches. Our story as individuals and as a company revolves around continuous learning, careful listening, and the belief that these fundamentally new software architectures require fundamentally new solutions.

Recruiting is arguably one of the most important things Lightstep needs to accomplish. The Technical Recruiter will play a critical role in helping drive this activity for the entire company.  The Technical Recruiter will be responsible for sourcing and owning the relationship with each candidate from first outreach all the way to close and the new employees first day. This role will largely support our engineering organization but may also occasionally step in to help on our other technical customer facing roles. 

You’d be a great addition if…

  • You have experience managing the entire candidate's life cycle
  • You have a basic technical background and understand technical landscape
  • You draw energy from building strong relationships with candidates and enjoying interacting with them on a technical level
  • You thrive in a fast paced environment
  • You have an inherent drive to constantly learn and challenge yourself to reach your own personal and professional goals
  • You enjoy developing innovative and engaging candidate sourcing strategies for recruiting the best talent for each role.


Bonus points if…

  • You have worked in an agency at some point in your career
  • You have deep knowledge of recruiting tools and opinions on how they should work
  • You have a passion for technology and/or direct experience in the APM space
