Manager, Talent Acquisition

Are you used to helping Tech companies double in size year over year?

If so we're preparing for a wild ride: we plan to double in size during 2022. And you can only imagine what we are preparing for 2023.

To make sure this ride is fun-wild and not scary-wild, your challenge as a Talent Acquisition Manager at Trengo is creating and implementing the best strategies to attract and hire the most various talent for different teams in a SaaS B2B Space. If you want to lead a team of 2 - that will grow really fast to 4 - Recruiters, and be part of the growth of one of the most fun, growth-driven, human-centric and fast-growing Tech companies, this opportunity is for you!

Wondering where all this growth is coming from? In an increasingly digital world, Trengo envisions a smooth way of connecting people with the companies behind their products and services. Our software makes it easy for customer-facing teams to collaborate on conversations via multiple channels, all in one shared inbox. Email, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, live-chat, you name it. With an A-round investment of $36M led by Insight Partners and Peak Capital, we are strengthening our position in the Netherlands and accelerating our rapid growth in Europe, US and LATAM.

When you meet anyone who works at Trengo, you'll most likely find them excited about continuous improvements, empowered to add their own touch to the world of online communication, and eager to collaborate with diverse people on the daily.

What your day looks like

Let's break down this vision into a little taste of your work at Trengo: 

  • You will lead all the Talent Acquisition strategies of Trengo in order to hire great Talent.
  • You will coach, train and develop a fantastic team of 4 Talent Acquisitions Specialists from different seniority levels. (will grow more next year!)
  • You will work with hiring managers on their recruitment needs by challenging them, bringing fresh ideas, and letting them know what the candidate market really looks like. Even when things get tough.
  • You will lead the Employer Branding Strategy to attract the best talent for Trengo together with the Marketing team and People team and involve other departments in a hiring collaboration.
  • You will source, interview, and hire the best leaders to help Trengo to scale.
  • You like to show empathy to all the candidates and have an honest, valuable discussion. Candidate experience is always a priority in our team.
  • Trengo's recruitment process is a living thing, so we often carry out projects to make it even smoother and more efficient. You are the driver of projects and initiatives to keep improving both our candidate experience as well as our internal stakeholder experience.
What we expect

Now that you know a bit about us, can you tell us a bit about you? I hope you can identify yourself with some of these:

  • You are an experienced Recruiter with some team-leading/coaching experience or ideally already leading a small team.
  • You are able to create a hiring strategy to double a SaaS business in size - if you did it once or twice you can do it one more time in style, with us.
  • You interview candidates in a semi-structured framework, with competency-based questions for Leadership positions. You might handle 2 to 5 Leadership roles at the time.
  • Advising the business, the leadership team and hiring managers is something that you do with passion, strategy, and care in order to improve the quality of hiring and protect the culture of Trengo.
  • Even if you're data-driven and in control of your output, you know that the end doesn't justify the means. Our monthly target is a number, but the quality of hires is the ultimate goal.
  • You're a proactive partner to the business, by recognizing recruitment trends within Trengo and acting on them.
  • You are forward-thinking: you're up to date with the current recruitment trends and have a unique point of view about how to be successful in the recruitment Tech scene.
  • Your English is fluent. If you know another language is always a plus, remember we have 27 different nationalities and you will be someone that will help to improve this number.
What we offer

This is what we carefully prepared for you:

  • Finding yourself in a fast-growing company, where your career can evolve: we're aiming to double the size of our Trengo team by the end of the year. 2021 was epic and, best believe it, 2022 is looking bright on our side.
  • Free sessions with on-demand psychologists from OpenUp. Your mental health is important to us.
  • An education budget to feed your curiosity and 2 extra days off for your courses or conferences, if needed.
  • 25 vacation days to rest, have fun and travel, as you wish.
  • For when we're in the office: you can bet we have delicious warm lunches together prepared by our in-house chef and workplace experience team. Also, your expenses for traveling to happy Utrecht will be reimbursed.

Now what? Don’t worry, I understand if you don’t know what to do right now. With all recruiter's vacancies out there, you like what you read but you still have questions before deciding to move forward. This is why I am here: I am Gonçalo. Happy to clarify any doubts, so you can make a good decision, whichever that is. If you are not ready to apply yet, ask me via the chatbot. If you are ready, talk to you soon.
