Job Description

Seeking an experienced Technical Recruiter with staffing expertise who is ready for significant autonomy and discretion in building out a professional network and placing candidates.

Welcome to Vaco-an uncommon company with an empowered culture. At Vaco, we are dedicated to hiring the most extraordinary people, outlaws, if you will, seeking the freedom to be as great as they want to be. For us, preserving an environment where our teammates feel free and empowered is key.

We assume positive intent. We focus on fixing problems, not placing blame, and we accept that Vaco is a safe place to fail-one in which we take the lesson and "fail forward" to success. If these values resonate with you, we invite you to explore a new and exciting career of a lifetime.

A Day in the Life

Our CTO client just called. He's in desperate need of a product development leader. Or maybe he needs an experienced project manager to lead a critical implementation. As a Technical Recruiter for Vaco Technology, you will:

  • Scour the web, attend networking groups, and expand your personal network to connect with professionals at all levels for IT development and infrastructure.
  • Ask questions and develop a deep understanding of the challenges and professional objectives your candidates and consultants face.
  • Work with Account Executives and Client Managers to understand current and upcoming job opportunities.
  • Help your candidate through the entire hiring process, from the first interview to the negotiating the final offer.
  • Guide candidates to careers that make sense for their skills and professional goals.

What we are seeking:

  • Minimum of 2 to 5 years' recruiting, preferably in an agency setting
  • Ideally, you have direct and current experience with IT development and/or infrastructure positions, including JAVA, .Net, PHP, SQL, BAs, PMPs, etc...
  • An innate drive to persevere towards the end goal

What we are offering:

  • A guaranteed base salary + uncapped commission earnings
  • Comprehensive Benefits: Medical, Dental, Vision, Life and Disability Insurance, 401k, Health Savings Account (with company contributions!), and more.
  • Generous PTO that increases with tenure
  • Annual incentive trips to exotic destinations for you and a guest
  • Annual training by industry experts for all Vacotians, as we like to call them, to hone their skills and exchange ideas.
