About this position


Named a top D.C. startup to watch in 2016, 2017, and 2018, Quorum builds software for public affairs, providing one place for stakeholder engagement, legislative tracking, and grassroots advocacy. Thousands of public affairs professionals use Quorum for their work in Congress, all 50 state legislatures, major U.S. cities, and the European Union.

Quorum is 100% bootstrapped, having never raised venture capital funding, and works with organizations like Coca-Cola, the United Nations Foundation, Sierra Club, General Motors, and Lyft.

As Quorum’s Recruiter, you will design and manage our recruiting strategy, including sourcing candidates, managing pipelines, and delivering a delightful candidate experience in order to build a diverse and productive workforce. You will be expected to lay the foundation to expand recruiting operations to hire 50+ team members on an annual basis while decreasing the average time to fill roles.

About You:

  • You have at least one year of experience working in end-to-end recruiting for a high-growth software company
  • You want to make a meaningful impact on building a diverse and inclusive organization
  • You are excited to apply an analytical mindset to streamline Quorum’s efforts to recruit and hire exceptional team members
  • You have experience working with an Applicant Tracking System—bonus points if you’ve worked with Greenhouse!—and are interested in expanding your technical recruiting skills
  • You are a natural “people person” who establishes rapport and builds relationships with people from all walks of life with ease either in-person or online
  • You take pride in working quickly and diligently to help active and passive candidates understand how they can advance their career by joining your organization
  • You are an especially competitive candidate if you have prior experience applying continuous improvement strategies to improve the Candidate Journey from application through onboarding
  • You are a superstar if you have experience building and broadcasting a strong employer brand
  • And, of course, you’re a highly motivated self-starter that is eager to contribute to the team from Day One

What You’ll Do:

  • First week: You’ll learn the ins and outs of the current Quorum candidate experience, gain exposure to our applicant tracking system, and get to know the Operations team.
  • First month: You will connect with key stakeholders and hiring managers to identify hiring needs and create a strategy to fill open roles. You will take ownership over managing end-to-end recruiting, including sourcing prospects, scheduling interviews via Greenhouse, and shepherding candidates through the entire candidate journey.
  • First 6 months: You will customize and optimize our recruiting strategies to attract high-quality candidates from a range of backgrounds and life experiences (e.g., veterans). You will partner with Marketing and Communications to enhance our employer brand. And, you will take the lead on educating and guiding team members, hiring managers, and the Operations team on best practices and current trends in recruiting.
  • First year: You will develop and execute on sourcing and recruiting management strategies that meet the needs of a high-growth B2B SaaS company, including amplifying our diversity hiring efforts and iterating on our hiring process until we meet or exceed industry benchmarks for time to hire and time to fill.
