About the Team

In pursuit of this mission, we seek a full-cycle recruiter to join our People Operations team to help us find and close leading talent across our scientific research, engineering, business, and policy teams. People are OpenAI's most powerful resource, and recruiters have an outsized impact by bringing top talent to our organization.

About the Role

Our ideal team member is a problem-solver, a people-connector, and a relationship-builder with a background of success in scaling teams thoughtfully. You'll develop, iterate on, and own recruiting systems and processes from end-to-end; source, pitch, screen, and close candidates; and partner closely with hiring managers across the organization. You’ll also lead and contribute to people-focused, cross-functional work in learning and development, diversity, equity, and inclusion, community building, and more.

In this role, you will:

  • Source top talent for high-impact roles for OpenAI through a variety of creative channels
  • Partner with hiring managers to build and improve recruiting processes and develop sourcing strategies for each of your roles
  • Act as the main touchpoint for your candidates from source to close
  • Ensure a positive end-to-end interview experience for all candidates
  • Equally prioritize speed and care when responding to candidates
  • Represent OpenAI and engage with candidates at conferences and events
  • Effectively lead and contribute to cross-functional projects

You might thrive in this role if you:

  • Are deeply interested in technology and artificial intelligence, and their potential for positive impact on humanity
  • Are passionate about building and growing relationships
  • Connect and relate to a wide range of people, personalities, and values
  • Care deeply about building a diverse recruiting pipeline and inclusive work environment
  • Have a track record of balancing multiple open roles with ease
  • Learn quickly and thrive in a constantly evolving environment with shifting priorities
We're looking to fill a number of roles on the team and are open to varying levels of experience in our applicants. Ideal candidates will have experience in both technical recruiting for research or engineering roles and in full-cycle recruiting from source to close.
