At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. Unfortunately, most product managers, analysts, and marketers spend too much time searching for the data they need, while engineers are stuck integrating the tools they want to use. Segment standardizes and streamlines data infrastructure with a single platform that collects, unifies, and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flip of a switch. That way, our customers can focus on building amazing products and personalized messages for their customers, letting us take care of the complexities of processing their customer data reliably at scale. We’re in the running to power the entire customer data ecosystem, and we need the best people to take the market.    Segment Recruiting sits at the heart of our business and we care about making impact over anything else. We’re a small, highly driven team that prefers strategic problem solving over mass volume recruiting. We partner closely with our hiring managers to figure out creative solutions to one of the hardest problems in tech - how to build a world-class team in one of the most competitive hiring markets to date. 

What we do:

  • Segment’s business has taken off and we’re growing intentionally. We keep our hiring team small and nimble which means there’s ample opportunity for ownership. 
  • We believe that you have to stand out in order to attract top talent. It’s not a volume game anymore, it’s about differentiating your opportunity. We’re always trying to push the status quo and think 10 steps ahead of our competition. 
  • We build deep relationships with our hiring managers and treat them like true partners. Our hiring managers know that one of their main jobs is to recruit, and they commit a percentage of their time each week to working with our team. They do so much more than interview - they work with us on messaging, they write blog posts, they spend time helping us drum up referrals, they run their own branding events, and more! Our recruiters aren’t alone in their pursuit of the perfect candidate. 
  • We solve problems as a team. We’re a close knit group and work with each other daily.
  • Our team cares deeply about building a diverse company. We don’t just try to fill our open positions, but we layer on diversity goals and experiment with different strategies to hit our total number goal while also building a team that reflects the composition of our city and country. 
  • We have fun! We organize team events of our own accord, and we genuinely enjoy getting to know one another as people and not just coworkers. 

Who we are looking for:

  • You are a sourcing powerhouse and get creative in getting top talent excited. 
  • You are deeply motivated by being a strategic partner to the business. You will help define hiring needs by looking at projected growth, team structure and current talent trends
  • You have a problem solving mindset and you like to collaborate and brainstorm with your team to find solutions. 
  • You like to work closely with hiring managers to calibrate, iterate, and engage them in creative tactics. 
  • You nurture candidate relationships and believe that a smaller, targeted pipeline is more beneficial than a bloated, high volume one. 
  • You want to work at a company that is passionate about hiring a diverse workforce and making sure we support all types of people at Segment. 
  • You want to change the talent industry at large and figure out the best ways of recruiting in a highly competitive environment. 


  • Ideally 4+ years of in-house technical recruiting experience, but I care less about years of experience and more about the impact and results of your work. I believe you can have 4 years of recruiting experience and be stronger than someone with 10. 
  • You’re able to run a full cycle recruiting process and own engaging talent, wrangling the hiring team, evaluating the candidate correctly, and closing senior talent. 
  • You’re able to juggle various roles at once and you use creative strategies to build a consistent, humming pipeline. 
  • You are able to nail down difficult profiles and you understand the profiles for leading competitors. 
  • You thrive and ruthlessly prioritize in a constantly changing environment.
  • You’re motivated by challenging targets and you enjoy setting new records.
  • You are an excellent communicator and you are able to build productive and positive relationships with people of all levels. 
  • You are able to work with leadership on employment branding and creative strategies to build long term candidate relationships. 
  • You are creative and resourceful in problem-solving to ensure that you always get the job done.
