Job summary
Our organization is creating a new team to rebuild how we hire our recruiters.

The Sourcing Recruiter will be responsible for hiring technical sourcing recruiters (as the universe folds in on itself).

In this role, you will have the opportunity to bring your creativity, new ideas, and expertise to make a significant impact on the future of our business, specifically around candidate experience. That said, we need to meet hiring goals as a primary objective, and our speed and efficiency in delivery will open up opportunities to experiment.

This role can be virtual out of any US state. Preference is on-site for Denver, Colorado, with secondary preference for on-site in Seattle, WA; Arlington, VA; Austin, TX; or Dallas, TX.

Key job responsibilities

  • Deliver results through identifying, contacting, engaging, and preparing recruiter candidates for phone interviews and interview loops (virtual, but hopefully in-person in the future)
  • Invent new channels for identifying talent
  • Demonstrate customer obsession by being the most honest, forthright, caring, and knowledgeable recruiter the candidate has ever worked with
  • Be at the forefront of our newest leadership principle, 'Strive to be Earth's Best Employer'. You will be the first Amazonian they will get to know. You will do what's in your power to make their career grow, whether that be at Amazon or elsewhere.

A day in the life
  • Sourcing technical recruiters for full-time opportunities at Amazon
  • Participating in hiring experiments to optimize the candidate experience before they interview
  • Connecting with other recruiters outside of our team to crowd-source best practices

About the team
Pathfinder R4R (Recruiting for Recruiters) is a new team as of 2022. We will be responsible for all recruiter hiring into the a dedicated engineering recruiting organization (hundreds of recruiters currently).
As the hiring manager, my passion is finding a path that can balance hiring needs with candidate experience. I personally follow 'r/recruitinghell' and take it personally that our job function has become transactional and hard to work with.


  • Bachelor€™s degree or equivalent experience
  • 3+ years of corporate and/or agency recruiting experience, primarily sourcing passive talent
  • Experiencing managing and prioritizing multiple searches, projects and client relationships
  • Experience building and driving talent sourcing initiatives.
  • Experience working with recruiting and people-related tools and systems, including applicant tracking systems, resume databases, internet sourcing tools and complex spreadsheets.


  • Even though this role will be hiring non-technical roles (recruiters), it's preferred that they have a technical sourcing background so they can assess talent
  • Experience running experiments and/or programs that tinker with the recruiting process
  • A track record of thinking big about recruiting and challenging paradigms (even while it irks me to say paradigms)

For virtual jobs where work can be performed in Colorado: For employees based in Colorado, this position starts at $72,000 - $126,100/year. A sign-on bonus and restricted stock units may be provided as part of the compensation package, in addition to a range of medical, financial, and/or other benefits, dependent on the position offered.
