Who are we?
Sidewalk Labs is the pioneering urban innovation company. Our innovative placemaking enables us to develop insights about the future of cities that we then turn into businesses. Since our founding in 2015, we’ve grown into an organization of over 100 employees based primarily in New York City. Our cross-disciplinary team consists of experts from real estate, urban planning, government, finance, technology, and engineering, among other backgrounds.
We’ve launched innovative companies addressing urban mobility, next-generation infrastructure, and community-based healthcare, and invested in startups working on everything from robotic furniture to digital electricity. We continue to work internally on projects such as factory-made mass timber construction that can improve housing affordability and sustainability, a digital master-planning tool designed to help developers and communities achieve shared objectives, and a new approach to all-electric neighborhoods.
With the potential to catalyze and scale new models for sustainable and affordable growth, our work is both exciting and complex. We are working to achieve something unprecedented — help us build it!
What is the role?
This is a new Coordinator / Sourcer role, reporting to our Head of Talent Jan initially, and will focus on supporting our team in engineering and corporate hiring. It is a full-time position for 12 months. This means full benefits (paid time off, health insurance, 401k matching, etc.). It has the potential for conversion to permanent employment based on performance and business need.
In this role, you will support our Talent team to run best-in-class recruiting processes: you’ll write strong job descriptions, build interview line-ups, and drive the process all the way through a new hire’s onboarding process during their first weeks. You will partner with our recruiters to support specific roles. The Talent team is currently 3 individuals and scaling up to 5 this quarter. As you gain proficiency, your portfolio of roles and other scope might expand, and could include sourcing and project management.
This is an excellent opportunity to start your career in Talent/Recruiting and learn high-impact recruiting top-to-bottom. In our recruiting model, our coordinators are the empowered backbone of our team. This means you’ll stay on top of things and deliver an outstanding candidate experience. There is also an important link to our People Operations work, which starts at onboarding. Sitting at the core of our work will let you learn about all steps. We see this as a potential step towards a full recruiter role and we're committed to helping you grow into it.
Note: We are currently working remotely, and we expect to eventually re-open our offices when it is safe to return, in 2021. After re-opening, candidates will be expected to come into the New York office.
