Job Description: Recruiter
Sprout is a trusted stakeholder management software-as-a-service that helps companies better manage their equity, employee share options and digital assets. The founders of Sprout are experienced startup veterans who noticed both service and knowledge gaps in how we manage this. Our mission is to create transparency and democratize economic empowerment and stakeholder management for everyone. We teach people how to turn equity and tokens into the most powerful stakeholder engagement tool.
Roots was founded by Andy Lee, an ex-Uber APAC senior executive, and Tony Sun, a China product and engineering leader, who both have a combined 40-years of experience launching organizations and growing teams to scale. We were founded in 2019 and we are backed by a group of prominent early-stage investors.
For What We Are Hiring
We’re looking for an experienced, high energy part-time recruiter / admin to help us find amazing people and support our team. This right person will obsess about finding and bringing the best people in the business to join us.
You will immediately roll up your sleeves and dive deep into the water and support all administrative tasks and challenges in a fast-paced environment. You will be known as a logistical “fixer” and as part of a new startup, there are a lot of tasks and problems that require a detailed oriented, thoughtful and proactive person.
You will start from the ground up to build and launch the very rocket ship you will ride. You’ll have a unique opportunity to join a startup and learn the best practices from Silicon Valley and China against the backdrop of Hong Kong.
We are building people management tools for teams so we will lead by example with a world class culture that promotes diversity and inclusion and enable our own people to reach their maximum potential.
Join us in our mission.
