Sr Executive Recruiter
Slack's Leadership Recruiting team is looking for a Senior Executive Recruiter to help hire the next generation of Executives to Slack.

These roles require a high touch level of service to not only our internal executive team but also for every candidate that the team engages and comes into contact with.
You will have a demonstrable track record of success managing multiple leadership searches, driving passive strategy campaigns for both tech and non-tech roles. You are a seasoned Leadership Recruiter with the ability to think creatively on talent attraction strategies. You are passionate about delivering a high touch service and enjoy partnering cross-functionally to creatively recruit.
Slack has a positive, diverse, and supportive culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, collaborative.
