Sr. Manager, Talent Acquisition

May/June, 2022

Position Overview

BANYAN is looking for a passionate and high-performing Sr. Manager of Talent Acquisition. This individual will be BANYAN’s first recruiting hire and will build the function internally. BANYAN sits behind the scenes to allow consumers to connect their receipts to any app they choose in a secure, safe, and anonymized way. We partner with both merchants (who supply the receipts) and banks, neobanks, and fintechs (who have demand for receipts).

As Sr. Manager, Talent Acquisition, your number one priority will be to partner with BANYAN’s business leaders and to define and drive best-in-class recruiting strategies and practices for the company. This individual will build all processes across technical and non-technical recruiting efforts and should be adept at running a talent acquisition life cycle. In our rapidly scaling company, the ability to drive results, while remaining agile and able to shift gears at a moment’s notice will be critical to your success.

Initially reporting directly to our CFO, you will work closely with all other internal business teams such as Product, Marketing, Engineering, Customer Success, and Sales teams. You will play a critical role in driving the next stage of our fast paced growth.

You will learn more as you get to know us, but if you are up for a meaningful challenge, and are ready to take the lead defining our’s and the industry’s future, this is the opportunity for you.

  • Partner with the leadership team and managers to scale our company-wide onboarding and build department specific onboarding that sets up new hires for success
  • Expand and improve the remote onboarding process to make new employees feel a part of the team
