Eventbrite San Francisco , CA 94118

Posted 5 months ago


Eventbrite's goal of building the marketplace for live experiences relies on our foundation of world-class talent and unbeatable company culture. Hiring top talent in some of the most competitive markets globally is no easy task, but we have a creative and dedicated team who has helped Eventbrite scale to over 1,000 Britelings in 12 countries over the past 10 years.

We're looking for a Talent Manager who can connect Eventbrite's vision, mission and story to inspire, coach and mentor the Talent team and evolve Eventbrite's recruiting processes. Our San Francisco team is the hub of support for our global offices, meaning we need a Talent Manager who can effectively work cross-functionally with leaders across the globe.


Eventbrite Talent Acquisition strives to attract and retain top talent, create a diverse workplace and build rewarding careers. Our values are deeply rooted in building a strong employment brand and creating delightful candidate and hiring manager experiences. We believe people are our greatest asset and the talent we attract drives the success of Eventbrite.

Our Talent Acquisition team is tight-knit, quick-moving, and fun-loving. We believe recruiting should be a company-wide effort, candidate experience comes first, and that hiring should be based on relationships and not transactions. Each member of our team is invested in telling our company's story, building our brand, and establishing new processes that challenge the traditional and often dated methods of recruiting.


As our Talent Manager who will own the entire hiring lifecycle across positions and business units, you'll be responsible for working with Recruiting Marketing to get creative about how you create a vast and steady pipeline of candidates. You'll partner closely with stakeholders throughout the business to understand current and future people needs, and work cross-functionally to make sure we'll be able to meet our targets.

We're looking for someone who is committed to consistently raising the bar for our Talent Acquisition team. You should be excited to build on best practices and share new learnings with the rest of the team as we grow. You're a pro at sourcing, assessing, and closing candidates, not because you're great at sales, but because you understand the business need, the candidate's motives, and can thoughtfully piece it together.

  • Experienced: 4+ years of in-house recruiting experience, specific focus in technical recruiting. Recruiting for all levels of an organization, from entry-level to senior-level positions.

  • Exceptional communications skills: This role will require a lot of listening and communicating. The ability to authentically communicate (written and verbally) in a way that makes people feel heard and drawn to work with you are essential.

  • Level-headed: You are solution oriented, work well under pressure and embody grace under fire. And do it all while juggling multiple projects and reqs.

  • Strategic: We rely on data to drive decision making and conduct weekly hiring manager meetings to educate on recruiting best practices, market data, and recruiting processes and tools.

  • Discreet: Given the nature of this role and access to private information, we will look to the ideal candidate as having exceptional judgement. You will negotiate offers by partnering with hiring managers, relevant stakeholders and working cross-functionally with legal, compensation/benefits, immigration, etc.

  • Creative: You regularly think outside the box and have an arsenal of ideas on how to best engage and bring together talent, hiring managers, and the opportunity. Your ideas manifest itself into evolving our recruiting programs across the globe and in impactful Marketing and outreach campaigns.

  • Delightful: As an ambassador of Eventbrite, you are accountable for embodying the spirit of the company both internally and externally. You create exceptional candidate and hiring manager experiences and are an awesome teammate; always willing to lend a hand and have each others back.

  • Passionate: You love your job and it shows. Every interaction is handled with care and empathy, even when times get rough.

  • Collaborative: There is no 'I' in 'team' at Eventbrite -- we're seeking someone who is supremely collaborative, cross-functional, and a believer that success is best reached through team collaboration. Trust and delivering on your promises are key.

  • Detail-oriented: Managing a variety of moving parts with ease comes naturally to you.

    We're looking for someone to keep on top of all the logistics that go along with the entire recruiting lifecycle. From getting a requisition approved to delivering an offer.

  • Flexible: Things change quickly and we need someone who can pivot and acclimate -- all while having a great attitude.

  • Well-rounded: Diverse points of view make us better. We're looking for individuals eager to try new things, take chances and willing to contribute their talents to building a dynamic team.

  • Make-it-Happen Spirit: No task is too big or unachievable for you. You possess energy and drive, you're proactive and always seeking the next opportunity to get the unthinkable accomplished.


  • Passion for live experiences and an avid Eventbrite user

  • Prior experience working with an award-winning culture and/or notable people-centric company

  • A combination of agency and in-house experience

VIEW JOBS 10/1/2019 6:50:54 PM 2019-12-30T18:50 <p><strong>About The Role</strong><br /> Talent Managers are responsible for working with engineers we've identified as a good match for our partner companies (such as Dropbox, Stripe and Twitch). You'll spend time with each candidate to learn who they are and what they're looking for in their next career move. We want to provide every candidate with a highly personalized experience and help them through every part of the job search process. Starting with getting ready for their first phone calls through to deciding between offers. You can read in more detail how we think about this role here.<br /> <br /> Having some experience with technical recruiting, or the technology industry in general, will help a lot. If you've been working as an internal recruiter at a company, you'll really enjoy these three things about this role:<br /> <br /> (1) You don't have to spend any time sourcing (cold outreach, etc), all the engineers have applied directly to us and are in the job search process. Our partnership agreements with companies also guarantee that our candidates are fast tracked through to their final round onsite interviews.<br /> <br /> (2) You get to work representing different candidates and learning about them, which is more varied than delivering a single company sales pitch repeatedly. Your interests are with advocating for the candidate and what's best for them based on their desires and motivations.<br /> <br /> (3) You'll be working at a company where improving the hiring process is our core product. We want you to contribute ideas on how we can improve the experience for candidates and will treat these as top priority.<br /> <br /> <strong>Challenges</strong><br /> Being a Talent Manager requires a lot of context switching and multi-tasking. You have to be super organized and detail orientated. The position requires a genuine interest in people and showing empathy as they explain what they're looking for is important. You'll also need to be adaptable, things can change rapidly during a job search process as a candidate gets new offers and you'll need to help them navigate this and make the best possible choice.<br /> Main Responsibilities</p> <ul> <li> <ul> <li>Talking to our engineering candidates and learning about their motivation and what they're looking to achieve in their career.</li> <li>Managing the process for each candidate, making sure they're set up to meet companies and things are moving along smoothly.</li> <li>Providing support and advice to candidates throughout the process, especially as they interview at companies.</li> <li>Contributing ideas on how we can improve the candidate experience and process.</li> </ul> </li> </ul> Reasons to Join <ul> <li> <ul> <li>We're working on a problem that has both a clear business model and big positive impact on the world. By building a hiring process that focuses on just skills, not background, we can end credentialism and open up access to the best career opportunities to anyone.</li> <li>The product is working and we've reached profitability. Our biggest constraint is scaling our process to keep up with the inbound applications we're getting from engineers.</li> <li>We have an experienced founding team that's perfect for solving this problem. Harj was previously the first Y Combinator partner hired by its founders. Ammon and Guillaume founded Socialcam, acquired by Autodesk for $60 million.</li> <li>Some of the best investors are backing us, including Paul Graham & Jessica Livingston (founders of Y Combinator), Sam Altman (President of Y Combinator), Drew Houston (founder of Dropbox) and others: http://techcrunch.com/2015/09/28/triplebyte-3m/</li> </ul> </li> </ul> <p><br /> <br /> <br /> <strong>Compensation and Benefits</strong><br /> Competitive salary and stock options package<br /> Open vacation policy<br /> Employer paid health, vision and dental insurance<br /> 401(k) plan with matching<br /> Pre-tax commuter benefits<br /> Daily catered lunches</p> Triplebyte San Francisco CA
