Recruitment & Operations Manager

PostHog San Francisco, CA

  • Expired: over a month ago. Applications are no longer accepted.
Job Description

We are looking for a Recruitment & Operations Manager to join our People and Culture team. This role will be split roughly on recruitment and on internal people operations.

At PostHog, we are a small (but growing) all-remote team building an open source platform that empowers customers to create successful products.

Until now, tools for building products have been fragmented - product analytics, heat maps, session recording and A/B testing all provide immense value, but existing tools werent natively built to work together.

PostHog is different by offering these tools (and more) in a single platform that customers can host themselves. We started PostHog as part of Y Combinators W20 cohort and had the most successful B2B software launch on HackerNews since 2012 - with a product that was just 4 weeks old.

We are proudly backed by some of the worlds top investors and believe in product-led growth, where we build something awesome and let your product bring the users, rather than an outbound sales team and regular cold calls.

We have a lot of capital, but were a lean, strong team - so youve got the opportunity to have a huge impact.

Please note - while we are fully remote, we are ideally looking for someone between Pacific time and British Summer time.

What youll be doing:

  • You'll be working on a wide range of roles across Tech, GTM and Ops. You will manage the end-to-end recruitment process for your roles, and always ensure a world-class experience.
  • You will lead our sourcing efforts to find the very best candidates around the world, building a healthy and diverse pipeline for all current and upcoming roles.
  • You will be involved in people and culture initiatives, including helping organise our amazing team offsites!
  • You will provide the people & ops team with general operations support around things like new starter onboarding, visas and benefits administration.

The opportunity we can offer:

  • You will help us to scale the team from 20 to 50 people by the end of 2021, and far beyond next year!
  • Over time, youll maximize your impact. Depending on your career goals, we can help you to grow into a Senior Recruiter, or we can help you to move into more of a People or Operations role!
  • Youll be playing a key role in building a team and culture people want to work for - we want to make PostHog the last place that people ever want to work.
  • A broad learning experience - you might work on our careers page or handbook one day, and on recruitment campaigns the next! We are all about acting fast, innovating and iterating.
  • Flexibility in how and where you work - we trust you to manage your own priorities and schedule.


What you'll bring:

  • You must have at least 3 years of experience sourcing candidates and managing pipelines for a wide variety of roles within a start-up and/or high growth tech business.
  • You are passionate about delivering an exceptional experience for candidates and our team.
  • You are able to build and manage strong relationships internally and externally - youre a people person!
  • You are not afraid to step on toes - you have a bias to action and lots of initiative.
  • You have excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • You have a very high degree of empathy and care deeply about building a diverse and healthy team culture.


What we offer in return:

  • Generous, transparent compensation and employee-friendly equity in PostHog
  • Unlimited time off with a 25 day minimum
  • Private health insurance including dental and vision
  • 401k contributions (rolling out in Q2)
  • Generous parental leave
  • Training budget and free books
  • $200/month budget towards co-working or caf working
  • Spill mental health chat
  • Regular in-person get-togethers with the team (we are planning to go to Portugal in early September!)
  • Carbon offsetting for work travel with Project Wren
