Tech Recruiter

Job description

Funda is a technology business and the biggest online property platform in the Netherlands. We have ambitious plans for the future, so we can serve house buyers and estate agents even better. And our greatest resource? You guessed it: it's our people!

That's why we're looking for your skills. Even though funda is very much a Dutch platform, we have employees of 22 different nationalities—because we only want the best people, and that means searching across the globe! As an Tech Recruiter you know like no other where to find the (IT) talent we need, and where we as funda always need to be visible.

What a typical day might look like

You begin the day with a coffee with Kim—currently virtually, from home, but hopefully in person, at the office, in the not-too-distant future. You catch up with each other's work, and discuss the week's most important tasks. What are things looking like with the vacancies? Is it time to go through the submitted applications? Have the candidates that were headhunted on LinkedIn yesterday already responded? And what about the articles for the engineering blog? Check in with the editing team! You then move on to a (virtual) meeting with the Head of Data. He has three open vacancies that must be filled as soon as possible, given that they are vital to achieving the Q3 objectives.

After lunch you have an appointment with a copywriter to compose—together with the hiring manager—a recruitment text for the new Fullstack Developer vacancy. Next, you go through all your notes, before having a ‘.NET sourcing hour’ with one of the engineers. Then, you interview a candidate for a DevOps Engineer role in a first round job interview. Finished for the day? Almost! You see an interesting job application come in, and decide to book an introductory phone call with the candidate for tomorrow morning. Just before logging off, you see an email from the team that organises remote activities, and you are too curious not to take a peak to see what exciting things they have planned.

In short, these are your main tasks and responsibilities:

  • Full cycle recruitment (for all roles within funda, but with the main focus on IT)
  • Active sourcing (talent pools): since our target group is scarce, you are fully aware that you must be active in your networks on a daily basis in order to find the needles in the haystack.
  • KPIs, SLAs and matters such as ‘time to hire’.
  • Data-driven recruitment (if you want to know, you have to measure!)
  • Continuous process optimization, guaranteeing the quality of the recruitment process and helping to devise recruitment strategies.
  • Strategic recruitment (forecasting, referral programme, reporting).
  • Giving funda an even better profile as an employer (employer branding)

Your team

The Recruitment Team is part of HR and comprises Evert (CFO), Ilse (HR Manager), Leonie (HR Adviser) and Chantal (HR Officer). You will work closely with Kim (Senior Corporate Recruiter). Alongside this you will collaborate a lot with the CTO, Engineering Leads and other hiring managers, and you'll be working together with marketing around projects such as the engineering blog and writing job vacancy texts.


Who are you?

You are an enthusiastic Tech Recruiter who has an in-depth knowledge of which recruitment tools you need to employ and what paths you need to follow to be effective. You are a sociable person, and everyone will get to know you in no time — which is a good thing, as you must ensure that all your colleagues always have recruitment in the back of their minds! Additionally:

  • You have a degree from a university or university of applied science
  • You have a minimum of 2 to 3 years of work experience as a (agency) recruiter with a focus on IT roles
  • You are results-focused and are driven to succeed, but will not abandon our core values: the 6 fundamentals and our culture
  • You know your way around the tech world and are familiar with platforms such as Stack Overflow and Github
  • You are a networker who is able to ask for help
  • You know how to quickly generate solid backing among all stakeholders
  • You are decisive and able to convince others, and you relish working in a structured way
  • You have a good level of Dutch.

This is what we offer

Funda offers you one of the most challenging jobs in your field. Whether you work in the office or from home, we’ll make sure that funda feels like home to you. On location, you and your colleagues will work in the heart of Amsterdam, with our own ‘funda square’ and an unobstructed view of the IJ river. If you work from home, you’ll stay connected to your colleagues through Microsoft Teams, and we’ll make sure you’ve got everything you need for your home office.

You’ll be working with more than 140 great (international) minds, who will make you feel welcome from the start. To us, it’s only logical to take good care of our talents, and therefore of you. If you come to work with us, we offer you:

  • An excellent salary with an annual bonus scheme and 25 days off (you can buy more days if you need them).
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Reimbursements for your telephone, home internet, travel expenses, gym and part of your pension.
  • Heavenly chair massages 6 times a year (at the office, during working hours).
  • Chef-prepared fresh lunch every day (when you’re in the office), ranging from soups to salads, fresh bread rolls from the baker and a snack every Friday.
  • Dinners, team outings, drinks and a birthday present. And during lockdown periods, funda offers great virtual alternatives.
  • The opportunity to attend congresses and follow courses and classes, because at funda, we believe that learning never stops. You can also get your creative juices flowing during our hackathons.

We like to act swiftly at funda. So here’s what you can expect from us:
