Gordian is building the operating system for the airline industry and taking the friction out of travel. We started on an unsolved problem: empower travel sites to upsell seat selection, baggage and other upgrades. We’ve signed huge customers like Priceline, Hopper and Trip.com to our unique API.

Our traction speaks for itself.  With twenty-five people, we have annualized revenue of over $13m, backing from investors including Y Combinator, the ex-CEO of Skyscanner and the founders of Plaid, and our rapid growth is accelerating. 

We move fast, have a high impact culture, and work in a great hybrid-remote environment.  Get to know our culture and values here. Join our team to create the future of air travel.  

MISSION

The Head of Talent Acquisition will grow Gordian 4x in 2022 by building and lead a world class startup recruiting team.  You will define and and manage our approach to talent - partners, channels, capacity, staffing, and spend - while advancing our culture and environment by upholding our hiring standards.  To succeed, you will create innovative and streamlined processes to reduce friction in an accelerated recruiting workflow and act as a strategic advisor to hiring managers, sharing market trends, insights and managing expectations.  Most of all, you will promote our values and our employer brand to candidates and the talent team by acting with Freedom, Impact and Ownership.

QUALIFICATIONS

  • 2+ years of high-paced high bar talent acquisition leadership experience - you’ve managed teams of recruiters in a high pace environment covering multiple role types and domains

  • A love of finding great people and fitting them into a great culture - you love carrying a few requisitions on your own desk

  • Professionalism, energy, and excellent cross-functional communication skills - you know how to tailor your approach to different audiences

  • Track record of scaling teams rapidly

  • Passion for solving complex problems

  • Track record of managing the full recruiting cycle, ideally at an early or growth stage startup: sourcing, managing pipelines, and closing candidates

  • Data-driven problem-solving capabilities - you glean insights via recruiting metrics

  • Motivated by a fast-paced, high impact environment

  • Proactive and comfortable operating amidst ambiguity

  • Clear communicator with a bias to collaborate

  • High alignment with our values of Freedom, Impact, and Ownership 

HYBRID REMOTE ENVIRONMENT

We have a system for hybrid work called 7+1.  Read about it here.  Our remote teammates travel to Bellevue, WA for a full week once every two months.  We think it combines the best of remote and in person environments and it requires everyone not working from Bellevue to travel 6x per year.
