This is an opportunity to join a small, data-driven, and strategic team that is working cross-functionally with hiring managers in Product, Engineering, Ops, Compliance and other teams in the business. You’ll have the opportunity to learn from experienced leadership and solve interesting challenges. Plus the work that you do will have a huge impact on Paxos’s goals and bottom line. This is an exciting opportunity to join a company and help build from the ground up.

What you will do:

  • Hit the ground running! You’ll be expected to start screening candidates by Day 2 or 3
  • Own end-to-end recruiting for key roles across the business. These roles may range from compliance to engineering to product and you may have the opportunity to recruit candidates in London and Singapore
  • Build a pipeline of passive talent through creative sourcing; identify ways to engage passive talent outside of just sending recruiting emails
  • Collaborate with other team members on data and employee experience projects
  • Provide insight and guidance to stakeholders; use data to help drive decision-making around roles and compensation guidelines
  • The People Team is small, and you may be asked to help out with company events and other activities
