Senior Technical Sourcer (Contract)

Imagine your job was to help grow an organization whose only mission was to protect the world's most important and powerful resource. Imagine playing a small but critical role in keeping the Internet open and accessible -- a place where users have control and choice. Imagine working with us, Mozilla Recruiting.

Our small and mighty recruiting team is looking for a Senior Technical Sourcer to join our ranks. Our Sourcers are our secret weapons in building talent pipelines by focusing exclusively on talent sourcing and engagement.

We're acutely focused on providing exceptional experiences, both internally and externally.  We work closely together to create a positive and fun environment that empowers our recruiters to look beyond “making a hire” to building an organization.

The ideal person will be experienced enough to make a change in stride, open-minded, observant, and bold enough to speak up when they have a great new idea to share with the team.

  • Evaluate candidates for availability, interest level, visa status, salary range, relocation needs, and basic qualifications
  • Technical sourcing of top-caliber talent, across the organization, especially engineering (JavaScript, Python, Open Source Software, etc.)
  • Manage outbound facing engagement including Linkedin, job boards, social media, meetups, and other events
  • A consistent and successful approach to retaining relationships with talent base via events and email
  • Ability to source potential Mozillians based on a job profile that fits the general needs of the organization  (Sourcing cannot be solely dependent on skills and keyword matching)
  • Conduct pre-screens to identify areas where potential hires would be most impactful in the org, and create an ongoing relationship until that role opens up
  • Provide impeccable customer service to senior members of the team, enabling each full cycle recruiter to tap into your expertise in finding, attracting, and engaging talent
  • Deliver market data to team members, increasing understanding of the market at any point in time, or in any location. Extra Credit Points for having sourced in international markets, like Berlin, Paris or London

  • Builds a positive and empowering work environment
  • Demonstrates a growth mindset around taking risks and evaluating results
  • Confirmed ability to adapt to various groups and establish a common ground to effectively influence others

Desired Skills & Experience:

  • AIRS Certification
  • 4+ years of fast-paced high volume technical recruiting experience required
  • 3-4 years validated Technical Sourcing skills
  • You love data and enjoy the opportunity to research/understand/ and discuss at a high level all types of web development technologies

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
