[Although Quora is now a "remote-first" company, employees for this position will need to perform their work from India.]

About Quora:

The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of personal experience in people's heads, or buried in books and research papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds -- from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences -- so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge, and we're building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.

About the Team:

The Recruiting Team at Quora is responsible for supporting the company's growth in pursuit of our mission. We aim to hire and retain world-class employees and to create an environment where they can do their best work. We strive to be innovators and leaders in our field.

We value honest communication, mutual respect, and view ourselves as partners to our candidates and hiring managers. The ability to develop a deep rapport with candidates is critical to success on our team. If you are passionate about sourcing talent globally and would like to join an organization that shares your passion, come join us!

About the Role:

Quora is expanding and we’re seeking to bring aboard an experienced Global Recruiting Sourcer to help us grow. We’re at the beginning of one of the most exciting chapters in our company’s history; earlier this year we transitioned to “remote-first” and now we are joining the creator community with Spaces and our recent Subscriptions rollout. Our goal is now to identify and attract the best technical talent from anywhere in the world to join us in our mission to share and grow the world’s knowledge.

This role requires experience in building a pipeline of high-caliber talent in technical and sales disciplines at Quora. You will be responsible for building and cultivating talent pipelines for our Technical and Sales disciplines and partnering with the Recruiters and Hiring Managers to have a continual process of identifying the right talent.

With our transition to remote-first, this position offers a unique opportunity to shape Quora’s approach to hiring. You’ll be tasked with exploring international labor markets, identifying new pools of talent, and innovating sourcing strategies to recruit the best talent. And while we do have best practices in place around candidate engagement and our hiring processes, we’re excited about the idea of bringing aboard a new team member with fresh ideas who can also help mentor others on the team.
