  • love data, making sure our systems are set up to properly collect it, and use it to proactively provide status updates, to drive decisions and shifts in strategy, and to lead us in continuous improvement.
  • drive learning and accountability across our team around best practices for combating bias and fulfilling our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our recruitment and selection
  • cultivate a global long-term talent pipeline – building relationships with passive candidates, as well as with partners and connectors who have access to strong talent pools

  • Balance of authenticity and warmth with precision, structure, and attention to detail in written and verbal communications.
  • Excellent judgment, making decisions quickly, but carefully.
  • Experienced with gathering and analyzing both quantitative data and qualitative feedback to quickly iterate on recruitment processes and strategies with agility and a commitment to continuous improvement
  • Highly organized – adept at managing multiple projects and stakeholders at once without dropping balls
  • Intellectual curiosity and adaptability – look for learning opportunities everywhere, and are continuously thinking about how to apply what you’ve learned to your work
  • Alignment with GiveDirectly Values:
  • Recipients first. We prioritize recipient preferences over those of donors or ourselves.

  • Be proactively candidWsay what we believe, and are honest in sharing information.
  • Create positive energy We strive to be a source – not drain – of energy for our colleagues.

  • Accept reality. Propose solutions. We do not dwell on problems. We work actively to create solutions.
  • Be productively ambitious. We take the risks to pursue industry-changing success, not incremental progress.
