Wistia is a video marketing software company working to make business more human with video. In the last two years, we’ve developed and released multiple new original series, released a playbook on how business can be better Brand Affinity Marketers, and launched our new podcasting features for marketers and content creators. Through some tough times we’ve continued to grow consistently and more importantly we’ve continued to invest in our team while maintaining our values of Diversity & Inclusion at the core of our recruitment strategy. We have big plans looking ahead, and we’ll be growing our Talent team to help us grow and execute on our ambitious vision.
We’re looking for a curious and driven recruiter to partner primarily with our hiring managers and help us build and grow our phenomenal teams across Wistia. To be successful here, you must believe diversity is fundamental throughout all stages of the funnel, not a “nice-to-have“. We’re a highly collaborative organization and this might just be the most thoughtful and creative team you’ll ever work with ;). If you geek out about team-building, we’d love to chat!
Key Responsibilities:

  • Prioritize and deliver on Wistia’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion initiatives in Talent Acquisition.
  • Partner with the Director of Talent Acquisition to execute on Wistia’s hiring plan.
  • Partner with hiring managers in building their team in a timely manner, without compromising on diversity or talent levels. Champion hiring for our Tech and Product teams including stakeholder management and, as you grown in the role, strategic planning with those hiring managers.
  • Proactively source top active and passive technical talent. Utilize existing and new sourcing channels, continuously optimizing for more diverse and talent-dense candidate pools.
  • Own and manage a consistent, fair, and effective hiring process by asking questions to drive clarity and pushing back where appropriate.

Qualifications:

  • 2-3 years of agency or in-house recruiting experience (some combination preferred).
  • A deep interest in making an impact on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
  • A track record of success in technical recruiting for Product, Design, and Engineering teams.
  • An entrepreneurial mindset. As a problem solver, always seeking solutions, leveraging relationships and resources.
  • Experience with Greenhouse or similar ATS.

An Insider's view of Wistia

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Wistia provides a work-life balance superior to other companies that I have worked for. Management is considerate and encourages time spent away from our desk. Wistia truly cares about its employees both in and out of the workplace.

Patrick Bryant

Account Executive

What projects are you most excited about?

I'm really excited about the work my team and other teams at the company are currently doing to modernize integral parts of our codebase. I'm learning a lot about working with legacy code, identifying patterns that can be improved in the code, and recreating user stories in different frameworks and technologies.

Engineer II

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started at Wistia as a Customer Champ, truly the beginning of my career. I was encouraged to keep learning about what interested me, which led me into quality engineering. And now I'm grateful that Wistia gave me the chance to grow into that role working on making our product more robust for our customers.

Melany Vázquez Heredia

Quality Engineer

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

At Wistia we strongly encourage each individual to bring their entire self to work. We debate which state makes the best pizza, which snack deserves the “king of all snacks” title, and more. Approaching work this way in a carefree yet respectable way helps create an environment that is a great incubator for new ideas.

Uzoma Egbuchulam

Manager of Customer Support

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

My favorite way of collaborating with others teams is by creating a space where ideas flow and feedback is encouraged. I always communicate project goals—having everyone aligned early on is essential to any project I work on. I also remind myself that, yes, they are on another team in theory, but we're all still one team at the end of the day.

Growth Marketing Manager
