Workrise is on a mission to make it easier for skilled tradespeople to find work, and for companies to find in-demand workers. We’ve committed to placing 100,000 workers in jobs by the end of 2023, and 1 million by the end of 2030. We’re headquartered in Austin, Texas and are building the latest tech to support our workers in wind, solar, construction, oil and gas, and defense industries. 

Our team has great people from all over the US and beyond, from all sorts of industries and all walks of life. We highly value the different perspectives and unique ideas that diversity brings to our company, and consider it an absolute necessity for our future.

Early in 2021 we launched a new marketplace driven approach where we are heavily invested in putting the worker first. Today we’re building the largest skilled trades labor marketplace in the country. Having exceeded aggressive targets, we’re rapidly expanding into ~15+ markets in 2022. As such, it is paramount that we identify best in class sales and recruiting talent to capitalize on the momentum we’ve established. This is our biggest strategic effort at Workrise and your opportunity to directly impact the overall success of the organization.

We are hiring a geographically distributed team of  Skilled Trades Recruiters who will be responsible for developing and managing our supply of skilled tradespeople within the following markets; Atlanta, Austin, Denver, DFW, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Nashville, Orlando, Phoenix, Raleigh, San Antonio, Tampa, and Washington DC.  

Who we’re looking for:

We believe our core product is an available, highly qualified worker and the Skilled Trades Recruiter plays a critical role in delivering the supply of skilled workers our clients demand.
