Our new Recruiter, which we call a Talent Agent, is a critical component of the team’s success.  You’ll work from home on a close-knit and supportive team placing creative and marketing pros on contract engagements with our fortune 500 clients.

We place UX/UI Designers, Interaction Designers, and Digital Marketing Managers on assignments with the world’s favorite brands. You’ll work as closely with our clients as you do with our candidates (talent) so previous client-facing experience is critical.

We’d love to hire someone who lives in or around Portland, Oregon. You’ll work exclusively from home on a supportive and collaborative team.

  • Participating in continual learning seminars with professionals within the design community to stay on top of industry trends and share your knowledge with others

  • Responding to incoming client requests with remarkable speed and quality while proactively finding work for talent on an ongoing basis

  • Act as a subject matter expert for your clients.  You’ll be relied on to advise clients about the crazy hot job market and why they need to move quickly. You’ll do all compensation negotiations between the talent and clients and you’ll be the point of contact for both parties

Key factors that greatly impact a recruiter’s success:

  • A solutions-oriented team player with a fiery entrepreneurial spirit 

  • 3-5 years professional experience interacting directly with marketing/advertising/creative clients 

  • Strong project management skills with constantly changing priorities and tight deadlines
