Careers at Kenect

Director of Recruitment

Finance and Operations
Pleasant Grove

The Company:

Kenect is based in the “Silicon Slopes” of Utah. Our team is committed to helping businesses grow and succeed through our state-of-the-art business texting platform.

With Kenect, our goal is to make text messaging the primary communication tool for any business across the U.S. and Canada.  Texting is the way the consumer wants to do business. It’s time for businesses to embrace that trend and stop the constant game of voicemails, phone tag, and making customers wait on hold.

The Role:

Kenect has experienced 4 years of supersonic growth, and we’re just getting started! We are now seeking to build out an internal recruiting function.  As the company adds employees at ever-increasing speed, we need to ensure that the new employees are just as good as the amazing people already on our team.  We really do have the best of the best.

We need a recruiting leader who can; first, define and design the recruiting process for Kenect, second, replicate the function, and third, execute.  We hope to provide a delightful experience for candidates and our internal hiring managers. This role will be fast-paced, self-managed, and highly entrepreneurial. This role will initially report to the VP of Finance and Operations.

What you'll do:

  • Implement an applicant tracking system
  • Design the recruiting process for each department
  • Drive hiring best practices across the business with a key focus on hiring top talent
  • Train first-time managers on hiring best practices
  • Build strategic partnerships with department/hiring leaders to execute their respective hiring needs
  • Leverage various networks and sourcing strategies to build passive and active candidate pools
  • Assist in negotiating and closing candidate offers
  • Manage candidate expectations through the recruiting process
  • Provide data/insight on market rate salaries and benefits by role
  • Scale a recruiting team as determined by company scale

An ideal candidate will have:

  • 7+ years of experience in SaaS recruiting
  • Experience and expert knowledge in the end-to-end recruiting cycle from candidate sourcing to offer negotiation
  • Entrepreneurial mind-set to build an in-house recruiting function from the ground up
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Results oriented, and self-motivated

What we offer:

In terms of benefits, we have great insurance (health, dental, life, and disability).  We offer a 401(K) plan, flexible PTO, gym membership reimbursement, a breakroom loaded with snacks, awesome team activities, and so much more.

If you want a place to play ping pong, spend a ton of money on parties after a giant round of funding, have climbing walls, and flat-brimmed bro hats....this is NOT the place you want to be.

If you want a job that's rewarding and rewarded, where you'll be well-compensated, where you can have fun but are still expected to hit your numbers, your goals and your benchmarks...then this IS the place you want to be. At Kenect success is demanded, rewarded and respected. We work hard, we have fun and we get things done.

That's why we're exploding with growth.
