Job Description

About Us
One Concern brings disaster science together with machine learning for better decision-making. We quantify resilience from catastrophic perils, empowering leaders to measure, mitigate, and transfer risk so disasters aren’t so disastrous.
At One Concern, we believe an informed world is an inherently fairer one. Because incomplete information leads to false assumptions and poor decisions. That’s how cities are built in the wrong places, businesses are left inoperable after the shocks of natural hazards, and vulnerable people in communities are left paying the price. We believe we can change this. We believe that by pioneering cutting-edge science, we can make disasters less disastrous. And ultimately, realize planetary-scale resilience. 
About The Role
Fostering global resilience starts with our team and therefore also with our recruiters who build it. This is no small task. Our unique mission requires a unique team: from PhD flood and seismic scientists who pair niche hazard expertise with deep data science skills to crack engineers who enable our unprecedented data ingestion capabilities to a business team that can translate category-creating vision into tangible value props for customers. 
That said, to build this team, you too must be unique. 1C recruiters must be creative, dogged, and resilient themselves. Being data driven is a requirement, but so too is your empathy, understanding, and dedication to the mission of improving lives worldwide. But most critically, you must want to build. Joining the One Concern recruiting team means that you will not just execute recruitment, but build and own it. The ideal candidate would combine extensive tech recruiting experience with a clear streak of entrepreneurship and a desire to use those experiences to grow with the company.
