About this opportunity

In your role you will have the opportunity to help Zenjob attract top tech talent by thinking differently, and deliberately, in how we recruit. If you’ve already established a strong engineering & product recruiting culture in your previous companies and are now looking for a change of pace and scenery, we’d love to talk with you. 


The team

The People & Culture Team plays an important part in the success of Zenjob. To date, we have supported the growth of our team who now number more than 240 people throughout Germany. We work closely with Zennies (our people) at each key touchpoint before, during and after their time at Zenjob.


Why Zenjob

Zenjob provides a modern solution to real life problems. Companies who need flexible short-term employees and students who want to earn extra money to support themselves during their studies.

In your role, you will have a direct impact in finding the people who contribute to solving these real life problems.


How You’ll Contribute:

  • You will own the full-cycle for recruiting engineering and product candidates, from outreach right through to offer stage
  • Elevate Zenjob’s brand in the market to support us in becoming a recognisable employer for top engineering and product talent
  • Partner with a broad range of stakeholders, from first time hiring managers, through to our CTO on all recruiting topics 
  • You act as an advocate for candidates and hiring partners, delivering a consistently high level of service at each touchpoint
  • Be proactive in how you find and nurture candidates. Where we find the best people for Zenjob might not always be the easiest or most obvious
  • Work closely with other members of the People & Culture team on topics around job levelling, relocation/visa support as well as new employee onboarding
  • Present Zenjob in an engaging and authentic way.

You are:

  • Passionate: about your craft, having proven experience of elevating others around you with your knowledge and enthusiasm for recruiting
  • Perceptive: you don’t limit yourself to your own (comfort) area of interest, rather you see how your role connects with the broader business goals and work accordingly to align these
  • Collaborative: working with a broad range of stakeholders you know how to adapt the way you communicate and collaborate to achieve shared goals
  • Organised: you’re well structured, both in how you manage your candidates and your workload, balancing the need for urgency and quality
  • Flexible: you can pivot easily in your approach; you roll with the changes and thrive working in a fast-paced environment
  • Proactive: you're not somebody who needs to be told what to do; you have a bias for action 

This position is based out of our headquarters in Berlin. Fluency in German is not mandatory however, we do have German classes you can join to help you settle in.


Sound Good? Then we'd love to find out more about you!

Send us your application and include any other information you feel helps us understand why you'd be a great addition to the team. Maybe you're a champion of candidate experience; you've grown teams from 0-1000, or perhaps you're a regional sudoku champion. That's fine by us! We just want to know what you'd love to do and how you can contribute.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!

  • Learning opportunities

We're hungry to learn. As well as our internal Zenjob university platform, which enables us to exchange skills and expertise with one and other, we also encourage ongoing development opportunities such as our internal mentoring programme and external training. Additionally, we offer the opportunity to improve your language skills with in-house German and English lessons.


  • Dog friendly office 

Our Zennies have a soft spot for dogs; so much in fact, there is even a slack channel dedicated to Dogs of Zenjob.

  •  Keeping active

We believe moving is important. We encourage you to take a walk rather than rely on Slack and emails, get active with table tennis and for something to really get the blood pumping, we offer discounted Gym membership for FitX below us at our Berlin Headquarters.



  • Keeping fueled 

It's not only important what you do with your body, but what you put into it. Twice a week fresh fruit is delivered to the office and every Friday we also have our yummy company lunch. That said, the customary birthday cake or treats brought back from holiday are definitely hard to say no to.

At Zenjob, we want everyone to feel valued and comfortable to bring their true self to work every day. The collective team spirit is an important part of who we are, in fact, it’s one of the main things that people say they love about working at Zenjob. We see ourselves as being supportive, dependable, imaginative and ambitious. We enjoy working on interesting and challenging projects with autonomy, knowing that our work has a direct impact on our fast-growing and innovative startup.
