Recruiter (Engineering) – EMEA


Global remote recruiting creates a whole new set of challenges, and we want to blaze that trail. Figuring out how to assess Engineering candidates from every corner of the globe fairly and efficiently is important. Structuring contracts that meet global standards and local law is equally vital. We have established a consistent process across Canonical and train a high-level team of representatives from within Engineering to be responsible for their recruitment decision-making, supported by you. You will develop these leads, coaching them in judgement and supporting them in the process, and bring innovative technology solutions to ensure we grow at pace, without compromising on quality.

We view our recruitment process as a key ingredient in our future success, we want to invest in it, and we are looking for a world class recruiter to drive it forward.
