About Role

If you are an experienced Senior Talent Acquisition Manager who is as passionate about people, plants, and the planet as you are about using your recruiting powers for a mission-driven organization, and you can have fun while you work hard, then this is the place for you. 

In this role, you’ll support a mix of organizations and hiring teams - from Farm Ops to Deployment to Plant Science, you’ll likely support them all with niche IC roles and leadership positions. That being said, if a need arises on the team, you may be tapped for other searches as well - we run as a cohesive team and no task is too small for our TA Team. You are a good match if you are inventive in how you approach targeted sourcing and you can implement best practices for a growing organization.
