High Performance at Neo

We recruit, hire, and build our company culture around these attributes:

Teamwork: We trust, respect, encourage, and show up for each other — through good times and hard. We’re on this mission not just for ourselves, but also for the people we work with — and ultimately, for our customers.

Ownership: We all have a stake in Neo’s success — so we go out of our way to do what needs to get done. We hold ourselves accountable to deliver on our commitments — to our customers, to our partners, and to our team. When we fall short, we find a way to do better in the future.

Professional Integrity: We’re asking millions of Canadians to trust us with their hard-earned money — so we hold ourselves (and each other) to the highest standards of integrity.

The Role

We are seeking a skilled and experienced Sr. Technical TA Partner to play a key role in attracting top talent in the technology and product domains. The ideal candidate will have a strong understanding of the technical functions, including software development, product management, and related fields. This position offers an exciting opportunity to work in a fast-paced environment and contribute to the growth and success of our company.

What you’ll be doing

  • Partner, advise, and support hiring managers in the end-to-end recruitment process from sourcing, interviewing, and selecting the best talent to join our team
  • Actively recruiting for key roles by posting jobs, screening talent, scheduling interviews and ensuring a positive candidate experience
  • Source a robust applicant pipeline through advertising, job postings, attending career fairs/events, and promoting open positions at partner institutions and on social media platforms (ie: LinkedIn)
  • Maintain and provide data driven insights from interview tracking, time to fill, and any additional hiring data to improve the overall process
  • Update templates and tools as needed for the Talent Acquisition team
  • Create job postings and advertisements to attract top candidates both internally and externally

Who we’re looking for

  • 5+ years of technical recruiting experience with a preference for previous experience in a start-up/ scale-up environment. You’ve seen what it’s like to be on the rocket ship and are excited to do it again.
  • Proven track record of successfully hiring world class talent in some of the following areas: Software Engineering, Product Management, Design, Data, Cyber + Infrastructure. You don’t need to be technical, but know enough about different tech stacks and how software products are built.
  • Strong business acumen & communication skills. You’re comfortable leading stakeholder meetings with senior leadership and love diving into data and analytics.
  • Experience working with a wide range of recruiting tools ranging from ATS systems to sourcing tools. You stay up to date with new tools in the industry and are always looking for new ways to improve your productivity.
  • Strong understanding of the full-cycle recruitment process with a deep focus on candidate experience. You’ve comfortable at every stage ranging from sourcing to screening to closing. You also have a knack for building strong and authentic relationships with your candidates throughout the interview process.
  • Successful track record of using creative sourcing strategies to find qualified candidates for niche technical roles. You go beyond using LinkedIn and know your way around Github, x-ray searches and recruiting via social media.
  • Knowledge of the startup ecosystem with a deep understanding of different compensation packages involving equity.
  • Past experience acting in a mentor capacity. You’ve trained junior TA Partners and strive to elevate the team you work with.
  • Track record of leveling up the talent acquisition function though different projects ranging from DEI initiatives to employer brand to interview process optimization. You’re adaptable and always looking at how we can raise the bar in talent acquisition.
