Job description

At LessonUp, our daily driver is our mission. We want to help teachers to create the best and most engaging lessons possible, to keep their students involved. Our goals is to help out as many as 1 million teachers worldwide to do this, and to improve education by doing so. For this, we've created our easy to use platform where teachers can make interactive, present-day classes to share with their students. Together, teachers and team LessonUp created thousands of lessons, video’s, images and assignments to work with. And the cool part: this can be used in-class or remote! An easy and fun way to teach - just like it should be.


Why would you become a tech recruiter at LessonUp?
There are a lot of things you can copy, but your people will always be one of kind. At LessonUp we are very focused on building a very talented, ambitious team of craftsman with unique characteristics and ways of thinking. And as a SaaS company, you can imagine that the focus on hiring very smart developers, has a lot of impact on the business. We've managed to set up an amazing team of techies already, which we are sure will impress you. But with our current growth ambitions (doubling the team next year) we need to set-up a tailor made process and think of creative, awesome ways to help them to find their way to our mission driven team and company. 

In this role you will be responsible for the international hiring of new LessonUppers. You will be free to experiment to find the right resources to make this happen, organise awesome meet-ups, talks, think of campaigns with impact, and so on. Together with our Head of People Kelly you will think of the best strategy to set-up an ongoing process to hire people remote, relocate them, or hire them from the same city. ;) This will be a challenging, super fun position, with a great impact on the business. 

Your responsibilities in bullet points:

  • Responsible for the hiring planning and making sure we have the right resources to achieve these goals: being in the lead of external sources like agencies and freelancers + deciding where we need more help;
  • Active outbound recruitment and attracting inbound recruitment for both business and tech roles;
  • First contact for hiring managers: understanding their needs and translating this into a job description and approach to find the right person. Advising them in the right profile to get the job done.

  • Being in the lead of our recruitment processes.
